“His role in the band was as lynchpin, keeping the revolving satellites of his bandmates in precision,” Lenny Kaye writes of pioneering musician who had been battling cancerwww.google.com
I read a bunch of biographies about him years ago, his story is relatively straight forward:I've no idea how society can reconcile something like that. Like he killed one woman and basically imprisoned at least one other. The cops shoulda been called but i suspect there was money and power involved and everyone stood by until it cost someone their life. I don't see 'Let it be' being withdrawn over that though? We don't get to have one without the other. A rough read on him is that his mind was never capable of dealing with drugs or women.
I would strongly argue that that is not the case.The songs were great, the singers were great, the bands were so great that Hal Blaine possibly messed up and stumbled on one of the great drums beats. He was just the tape op.
That's how I can reconcile myself to still enjoying the music he made, by not celebrating him or his part in making it.
