Wild Man Fischer, RIP

Cover of Wild Man Fischer

Sad news to report.  Artie Barnes confirmed that Larry “Wild Man” Fischer died Wednesday from heart trouble.  He’s been a favorite of mine — and his albums with Barnes & Barnes are very much worth tracking down.  I also recommend the Rhino Handmade release The Fischer King, which has both of those albums, plus Wildmania and a whole pile of bonus tracks, and a pretty great essay.  Such sad news to report, though.  I don’t really have a lot more to say — though I also recommend the DVD of Derailroaded, which came out not too long ago, and which Kittysneezes reviewed here.

Wild Man, you will be missed.
