RIP Neal Casal

I just read the shocking news that Chris Robinson Brotherhood's guitarist Neal Casal has died, aged just 50.

This is pretty awful to hear anyway as he was so young, but a really nice guy by all accounts, a very good photographer and one hell of a guitar player too.

So sad.

I'm still trying to take this in. He played in so many wonderful bands i have loved from over the years - Beachwood Sparks, The Tyde, CRB and Gospelbeach to name but a few. Only recently heard a new Gospelbeach track and just knew it was him soloing all over it.

Wonderful, distinctive guitar player. Hope he got the peace he was after.

RIP Neal...

Very sad news indeed. Such a wonderful musician. Love his solo work, especially Basement Dreams, his work with Ryan Adams and the Cardinals and Hazy Malaze: their first album is a lot of fun, upbeat groovy rock music, with more than a sniff of The Meters. He will be missed.
