Sad news indeed: Lindsay Cooper died yesterday, 62 years old.
She played bassoon and oboe with Henry Cow and Slapp Happy/Henry Cow, and if you have a record collection with Canterbury related bands, she is probably on a lot of them too (Art Bears, Steve Hillage, Hatfield And the North, Egg, etc etc).
- A message on her death from Chris Cutler on Prog Archives.
- Biographies on Calyx and Wikipedia.
- Lindsay Cooper discography.
I had a blog post on her 28 June, starting with "Let´s hear it for Lindsay Cooper..", today I say Rest In Peace.
