David Axelrod - Composer, guitarist, musician and heavily sampled by hip-hop greats died on Sunday...

Been chilling out today listening to records and mooching on the internet for music.  Read an obit about and an interview with Axelrod where it mentions him being a very keen rock climber so did a search on supertopo but the searches are saturated with his namessake who is a big shot in US politics (was Obama's election and campaign advisor) so it's difficult to find out anymore.  It'd be interesting to find out more...

I’d climbed up at Stoney Point [in Chatsworth, California] on that route so many fuckin’ times that my mind was wandering. I was just not concentrating at all. The next thing I know, I was peeling off—which is a hell of a feeling. It’s like a bungee jump except the rope is tied around the waist. It really fucked up my back badly. I didn’t have it tied good and it went up underneath my arms. It was about a forty-foot pitch. I was breaking in a new pair of shoes.
Should you meet me at the crag - I'm pretty crap at face to face social interaction - what might seem like me being aloof is actually me trying to control moderate social anxiety - alcohol helps, but I don't take it to the crag

LOVE it!

Got me thinking. Notable persons who are also genuine climbers.

An inverse non climbing claims to fame. I'll propose it on that thread...

Nick Bond - former BMC NW Chair and Lancs quarries enthusiast has died of cancer. Climbed with him a fair bit and had interestingtrip with him to Montserrat. Earnest guy. Probably early 50's.  :wavecry:

Husker Du were simply more important to me than any other band for a long time. I think it was the honesty of both Grant Hart and Bob Mould as songwriters that mattered most.

There's a good piece in the Guardian already: https://www.theguardian.com/music/2017/sep/14/husker-du-grant-hart-death-aged-56
