A Town Without Pitney...

The week's musical R.I.P. trifecta is complete, with the completely unexpected death at 65 of a true rock n' roll pioneer, the great Gene Pitney. He was in the midst of a U.K. tour.

Yesterday we lost free jazz sax giant Jackie McClean, and earlier in the week we bid farewell to the inventor of The Bakersfield Sound of country music, Buck Owens.

Pioneers and giants, each & every one of them.

Here's an excellent appreciation of Gene Pitney.
