Archäologie DCLV : Die 60er Jahre des letzten Jahrhunderts gehen zu Ende - Zombies bassist and former Kinks member Jim Rodford dies at 76 [God Gave Rock And Roll To You]

https://allerlei2013riffmaster.files.wordpress.com/2018/01/jim-rodford07.jpg?w=551&h=413

The musician, whose career spanned six decades and included 18 years with the Kinks, died on Saturday after a fall on the stairs, his cousin and the band’s frontman Rod Argent confirmed.

Argent paid tribute to his “dear cousin and lifelong friend”, writing on the band’s Facebook page: “It is with deep sadness that I learned this morning that my dear cousin and lifelong friend, Jim Rodford, died this morning after a fall on the stairs.
“Jim was not only a magnificent bass player, but also from the first inextricably bound to the story of the Zombies.”
Argent said Rodford was dedicated to music “to the end” and added he “was unfailingly committed to local music”.

“Often, Colin [Blunstone – lead singer of the Zombies] and I would compare notes a couple of days immediately after a US tour and discuss how long it would take us to recover from an intense, fantastic but exhausting couple of months – only to find out and marvel that Jim had already been out playing with local bands,” he wrote.
Rodford had been working on his autobiography at the time of his death and is survived by his wife of 56 years, Jean, and three generations of Rodfords.

The Kinks
’ official Twitter page said he would be “greatly missed”.

Walter James “Jim” Rodford was born on 7 July 1941 and began playing bass in the late 1950s with St Albans skiffle band the Bluetones.
He helped Argent form the Zombies in 1961, declining an invitation to join the group but coached them through their first rehearsals. Following the break-up of the Zombies in 1968, he joined Argent’s new band, the eponymously named Argent – with gold records and chart success following as they released Hold Your Head Up and God Gave Rock & Roll to You.
When Argent split in 1976 Rodford joined the Kinks during their later years and remained until their dissolution in 1996 when he came full circle by eventually joining the Zombies – along with his son Steve on drums – as they were resurrected by Argent and Blunstone in 1999.
In September, Rodford received an honorary doctor of arts degree at the University of Hertfordshire.

Wise Man Says

"Es gibt so viele Arschloch-Typen wie es menschliche Funktionen, Tätigkeiten und Interessengebiete gibt. Und auf jedem Gebiet kann das Verhältnis von AQ zu IQ ein anderes sein. Kein noch so kopfdenkerisches Verhalten bei einem Thema bietet Gewähr dafür, dass nicht schon beim nächsten der Arschdenk mit voller Wucht einsetzt." Charles Lewinsky, Der A-Quotient

Wise Man Says II

"The illusion of freedom will continue as long as it's profitable to continue the illusion. At the point where the illusion becomes too expensive to maintain, they will just take down the scenery, they will pull back the curtains, they will move the tables and chairs out of the way and you will see the brick wall at the back of the theater." Frank Zappa
