RIP, Pip

Last week, the musical community lost a huge talent in Pip Pyle. Pip was a drummer/percussionist who was deeply involved in the Canterbury prog scene. His deft and subtle drum work graces two of my favorite albums of all time, Hatfield and the North's The Rotter's Club and National Health's Of Queues and Cures. In addition, Pip contributed strong composition in tracks like "Fitter Stoke Has a Bath" (from The Rotter's Club) and "Binoculars" (from Of Queues and Cures). He played his last gig, with a reformed Hatfield and the North, just two days before his death.
