Ripped in June

A selected overview of culture stars relevant to my own tastes who passed away this month. Rest in peace.

Danny Kirwan (68), British guitarist and member of Fleetwood Mac in the period that they created one of the most beautiful instrumentals of all time (Albatross).
Gennady Rozhdestvensky (87), Russian conductor. One of the best of his generation; we have over a dozen of CD's of his work, in particular Russian symphonies by the likes of Glazunov and Shostakovich.
Harlan Ellison (84), American writer. I enjoyed his SF work such as "I Have No Mouth, and I Must Scream" and "'Repent, Harlequin!' Said the Ticktockman"
