RIP Sean Bonniwell

Of course, I loved "Talk Talk" as a kid when it came out, but also my first band in LA, the Unclaimed, based their entire look on this band - though we didn't don the gloves - too hard to play in, I guess.

But, what a talent Bonniwell was! Fantastic songwriter, conceptualist and producer. Way ahead of his time. I was lucky enough to meet him a couple of times (he even came to see the Unclaimed once - said we sounded more like the Seeds than the Music Machine!) and he was super nice guy, as well as being talented.

So sad to see him go as the too young age of 71.
