a note from Ronn
I blogged on my MySpace page, www.MySpace.com/ronnlynnonline,
about the passing of musician Larry Knechtel. Larry came to my home and worked with me on a couple of tracks for an album of mine back in the late 80's. Musicians and sidemen are no doubt my heroes. Larry Knechtel was with out a doubt one of the greatest musicians in the world.
Another great talent is gone with the passing of Greg Ladanyi who died from a fall while working in Cypress.
I worked with Greg on an album back in 1998.
Greg, like Larry, had worked with about everyone from Jackson Browne (six albums, including “Running on Empty”, “Holding Out”, and “Lawyers in Love”), Toto (four albums, including “Toto IV”), Don Henley (three albums, including “Building the Perfect Beast”), Fleetwood Mac (“Fleetwood Mac Greatest Hits” and “Behind the Mask”), The Church (“Starfish”), Jeff Healey (“See the Light”). Greg went on to work with Karla Bonoff, Clannad, Caifanes, Jaguares, General Public, Asia, Camel, REO Speed Wagon, Tommy Shaw, Dolly Parton, and Joe Cocker.

We will continue to hear their music everyday and they will be missed.
