More bad news: Robert Quine, it has just been reported, was found dead Saturday. Fucking heroin, of course, was responsible.
I've always enjoyed Quine's guitar work as a sideman for so many of my favorite artists, like Lou Reed, Lloyd Cole, Marianne Faithfull, Tom Waits, and especially Matthew Sweet. His solo on Girlfriend's "Your Sweet Voice" blows me away every time with its quiet grace.
What a shame.
