Michael Hedges, musical genius - I was crushed when he died. Saw him live three times, and loved every second of his performances. Brilliant, out of the Baltimore Conservatory. Best quote "I had music in my head that I couldn't play on my guitar, so I built a different guitar." He was the first harp-guitarist I ever knew of, and remains a favorite. Who else would compose music for an e.e. cummings poem?
