This great man would light-up a song like fireworks on the 4th of July! He caused me to sit up and pay attention to the beauty of percussion in contemporary music. Rest In Power Mr. Mac...
This is the 2nd strike for me in one day - here in The Bahamas Canon Neal Roach and Anglican priest with roots in T&T passed just short of his 80th Birthday and now Ralph MacDonald - may their souls rest in peace and may they both continue to make sweet music in the heavens.
So sorry to hear of the passing of such a gerat man he would be greatly missed and i have to agree with Brian Copeland this have been a reaay sad year for all of us so many of our greats have passed on to the great beyond.
