When you have horrific things in the news like this bizarre plane crash, gas explosions in Manhattan and other such continual atrocities at home and abroad, one often turns to music for comfort. Although, when some of the creators of said music leave the planet, it feels all the more unfair. R.I.P. John Renbourn, Daevid Allen (Gong), Michael Brown, etc. 2015 is not the best year for being an aging musician.
Keith Hadad, the creator and manager of RCU, has been a contributing writer to Elmore Magazine and Thewaster.com and maintains a regular column, “Keith Hadad’s Choice,” in Blicker magazine. His writing has also appeared in the Smithsonian Folkways' Guest Blog and the Optical Sounds Fanzine.
