Ray Phiri, a South African...

...who played guitar on "Diamonds on the Soles of Her Shoes" and other songs with Paul Simon, died at age 70.

(By the way, you'd be forgiven if you were wondering what's happened to this blog. What started out as a vehicle to relay information about high school football to my out-of-town brothers -- with a healthy sprinkling of my opinions on other subjects, such as politics -- seems to have morphed into a music blog. Well, football is still about a month away, and as for politics, what can you say about a president who's a pathological liar, in way over his head and yet profiting financially from the office? It's a disgrace.

Like many of you, I'm sure, I'm trying to make sense of this current depressing time in American history. I'm beginning to think its closest analogue is the McCarthy era. I hope to elaborate on that soon.

Until then, keep dancing. Or listening to music.)
