Overlooked, was the death of Thunderclap Newman yesterday

Although the classic "one hit wonder" that song (Something in the Air) has been there throughout my life and always makes me think back to my younger years when I hear it.

The Band, it seems, was originally formed by Pete Townshend

Damn, these guys shouldn't keep dying, it is like a whole era is ending
