KEVIN AYERS has Passed..

The English musician/songwriter Kevin Ayers passed on a couple of days ago, at the age of 68.
He was one of the pioneers of the - so called - Canterbury Scene, and of the English Psychedelic Era.
He was one of the founding members of Soft Machine, and from 1969 till nowadays he was following a solo career, having worked with great musicians such as Brian Eno, Syd Barrett, John Cale, Elton John, Mike Oldfield, and many many others.
He left an important music legacy behind, including the first record from "Soft Machine" and about16 solo albums. His most known record I believe it was his first solo one, released in 1969, named "Joy of a Toy".
May God rest his soul...
