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.
