Death of Guy Babylon

September 24th, 2009 1 comment

I was greatly saddened to learn of the recent death of Guy Babylon. I had only just started to talk about how influential Babylon Bleu was to me as a writer and keyboard player. Sometimes it seems there is no justice.

I guess it is somewhat fitting that he did leave us with one last example of his brilliance – with video too.

Here is the video of a Guy Babylon composition Las Vegas Twister  which once again he displays his mastery on all instruments. Yet again he plays some excellent synth guitar via his clavinet with the Castlebar tremolo arm. The world of music needs more of this kind of genius.
