Radio, live transmission
Radio, live transmission

Listen to the silence, let it ring on
Eyes, dark grey lenses frightened of the sun
We would have a fine time living in the night
Left to blind destruction
Waiting for our sight

And we would go on as though nothing was wrong
And hide from these days we remained all alone
Staying in the same place, just staying out the time
Touching from a distance
Further all the time

Dance, dance, dance, dance, dance, to the radio
Dance, dance, dance, dance, dance, to the radio
Dance, dance, dance, dance, dance, to the radio
Dance, dance, dance, dance, dance, to the radio

Well I could call out when the going gets tough
The things that we’ve learnt are no longer enough
No language, just sound, that’s all we need know, to synchronise
Love to the beat of the show

And we could dance

Dance, dance, dance, dance, dance, to the radio
Dance, dance, dance, dance, dance, to the radio
Dance, dance, dance, dance, dance, to the radio
Dance, dance, dance, dance, dance, to the radio

ronnie “egberto” lane, leNda forévis…

egberto+mv

ele tinha nomes de artistas. desses com residência fixa no nosso coração… egberto era o da certidão. ronnie lane era o da admiração, do carinho, da emoção. por anos eu delirei que ele seria o clone cinematográfico brasileiro do baixista do faces e só me referia a ele desse jeito… por mais tempo ainda recomendei a trocentos amigos envolvidos com jornalismo sua personalidade absurdamente única, transgressora, genial para ocupar os veículos de comunicação… evidente que ninguém se sensibilizou com um garçom sem hype, na dele, foreta da badalação que se destacava, “simplesmente”, por sua inteligência.

egberto foi, por 28 anos, garçom do restaurante hipódromo (baixo gávea). atencioso, sagaz, sabia tudo sobre cinema. falava de filosofia, política, literatura. vascaíno cascudaço. acompanhava todos os assuntos. nada escapava de suas garras.

caramba, tive uma sensação inigualável quando o avistei no lançamento do preto e branco… gritei: PQParlle, ronnie lane… e lembrarei pra sempre o abraço que dei nele (registrado pela camila ali em cima).

semana retrasada, christiano (chapa, designer do preto e branco) esteve com ele e não relatou boas observações sobre nosso ídolo… muito magro, com dores no braço. chris se prontificou a catar um doctor e deixou o telefone para egberto fazer contato… e nada!

segunda feira, passando com shogun pelo hipódromo, perguntei ao garçom que estava trabalhando na varanda:

– egberto tá aí?

– egberto faleceu tem uns dez dias

“Fala, MV.

Pra quem tem no futebol um fator de formação de caráter, autoestima e sensação de pertencimento, ver um estádio histórico ir abaixo é sempre uma tristeza, ainda que seja do outro lado do Atlântico.
Olha que matéria incrível o Guardian (sempre ele) fez sobre isso.
E as histórias, principalmente as da 2° Guerra Mundial, são paralisantes.
Abraços”

Allan Holdsworth Dead At 70

Groundbreaking guitarist who played with U.K. Soft Machine, Gong, Jean-Luc Ponty passes away unexpectedly

Allan Holdsworth, the groundbreaking British guitarist, has died unexpectedly, aged 70.

The news was broken by his daughter’s Louise on her Facebook page earlier this evening. In a short statement she said: “It is with heavy hearts that we notify everyone of the passing of our beloved father. We would appreciate privacy and time while we grieve the loss of our dad, grandad, friend and musical genius. We will update close friends and family when service arrangements have been made and will notify the public of an open memorial service, which all would be welcome. We are undeniably still in shock with his unexpected death and cannot begin to put into words the overwhelming sadness we are experiencing. He is missed tremendously. Louise, Sam, Emily & Rori.”

Holdsworth rose to prominence with the prog band ‘Igginbottom, who released their sole album, ‘Igginbottom’s Wrench in 1969. After stints with early prog bands Nucleus and Tempest he later would work with Soft Machine, Tony Williams’ Lifetime, Gong, Jean-Luc Ponty and Bill Bruford. He was an original member of the prog band U.K. alongside Bruford, John Wetton and Eddie Jobson, but left following their 1978 debut album.

Although Velvet Darkness was released in 1976, Holdsworth did not recognise it as an official release, so 1982’s I.O.U. was what he viewed as his debut solo outing. His solo work has recently been the subject of a box set, The Man Who Changed Guitar Forever, and a compilation CD Eidolon: The Allan Holdsworth Collection, both released on manifesto Records. As a guitarist he was cited by the likes of Eddie Van Hlaen, Joe Satriani, Alex Lifeson and John Petrucci as a major influence, while Mahavishnu Orchestra guitarist John McLaughlin once said of him: “I’d steal everything Allan was doing, if only I could figure out what the heck it was that he was doing.”

Holdsworth was working on a new solo album at the time of his death.
