RIP Tommy Keene

Sad--what a terrific songwriter and guitarist.

Power pop genius--great melodies, although a lot of his records came off as too polished. "Songs From the Film" is terrific, and the "Real Underground" compilation is great.

I love his version of "Kill Your Sons":

sad to say i had never heard of him (surprising, too, as he's right up my musical alley).

i've really been enjoying his music today...thanks for passing it on.

peace to him and to you.
