Happy Birthday, Arthur Lee!

Arthur Lee of Love

Arthur Lee of seminal Sixties psychedelic rock band Love, was born on this day, March 7th, in 1945. Lee passed away from Luekemia on August 3, 2006. If you don’t own a copy of Love’s 1967 album Forever Changes, then you are seriously missing out.

“Served my time, served it well…”

Yesterday (August 3rd, 2006) I heard of the sad passing of Love frontman Arthur Lee, one of the greatest rock visionaries of the ’60s or any other time. In college, I was greatly blessed to discover Love’s third release, Forever Changes, and I can honestly say the music on this phenomenal album brought about a monumental shift in perception for me. I’m listening to the CD right now as a matter of fact, and the timelessness of songs like “The Red Telephone” and “Alone Again Or” (covered by everyone from UFO to The Damned) still blows my mind.

Thanks for the music Arthur. Say Hi to Syd for me.
