Don't Dream It's Over
I know I'm getting old when some of my favorite musicians close to my age are dying... Paul Hester, drummer for Crowded House, hung himself in a Melbourne, Australia park on Saturday. He was 46. Hester, with singer Neil Finn, formed Crowded House in 1985 after they both left Split Enz. Also, guitarist Rod Price, 57, who founded Foghat, one of the great boogie blues bands of the 70's, died after falling down the stairs at his New Hampshire home. He played with some of the blues legends, including Muddy Waters and Willie Dixon.
