If my calculations are right, today is Tim Powers' 13 birthday. Have a good one, Timothy. The Anubis Gates is still the best time-travel romp this side of Doctor Who.
Also, Buddy Miles died on Tuesday.
For the record, my favourite Jimi Hendrix Experience line-up was always the 'Cry Of Love' band, Billy Cox on bass and Mitch Mitchell on drums. Also, Band Of Gypsies would have been a vastly improved album with exclusion of Miles' scat vocals. And by 'vastly improved' I mean 'an album I might actually consider listening to again'.
