    You are right, it's fantastic although I wouldn't put it on the Marquee Moon pedestal.

    This one hurts as much as losing Jeff Beck. I've been a fan since a friend played the first two Television albums and Verlaine's first solo album for me around 1980. It was love at first listen. I never lost contact with his career and bought each album as it came out. I was fortunate to have seen two Television reunion shows as well as Tom Verlaine & Jimmy Rip performing a live and improvised soundtrack to silent films. He was truly special, unique and "one of my main guys".

    Such a giant loss. Clay Pigeon has been featuring Tom this week on WFMU. Enjoyed some of the stuff outside of Marquee Moon. The Patti Smith obit is a must read.
