Farewell Ziggy Stardust

Posted by zakala on Jan 11, 2016 in Band news

Love Commandos are saddened to hear of the death of Pop legend David Bowie at the age of 69 after an 18 month battle against cancer.

Bowie had a huge influence on popular music during his career, which covered a vast range of styles and genres often ground-breaking and breathtaking in their execution. He was, perhaps at his greatest with the late Mick Ronson on guitar, and 1972’s Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars still stands as one of the greatest rock albums of all time.

Sir, we salute you!

Farewell Chris Squire

Posted by zakala on Jul 1, 2015 in Music news

Lovecommandos note the sad passing of legendary Yes bassist Chris Squire after a short battle with a rare form of leuchemia. As a master of the prog rock bass line and only member to play on every one of Yes’ studio albums Chris was a core component of their sound.

Renowned for playing his 1964 Rickenbacker in a higher register than most rock bassists, Squire’s sound influenced many other players, notably John Entwhistle of The Who.

Christopher Russell Edward Squire, musician and composer, born 4 March 1948; died 27 June 2015. Sir, we salute you!
