Another of my childhood idols dead.

Nikki Sudden, I mean.

On the night of Epic Soundtracks' death, my band happened to be playing a show at London's Garage, and I dedicated the set to him. (I doubt there were many in the crowd who had any idea what I was talking about.) My plan for today involves drinking the rest of this coffee, answering some of my backed-up email, and trying to wring out another 1000 words of novel from my dishrag-like mind. It ain't much, I know, but for what it's worth, this one's for Nikki.

UPDATE: Jeez, him, too.

I was fortunate enough to see Nikki Sudden at what used to be Brownies in NYC a long ways back. It was great not only to see him, but to see how popular he was (at least with the NY crowd). I had been under the impression that I was one of very few who were familiar with Nikki Sudden or the Jacobites. Fortunately, I was wrong.
