The art of realizing meaningful coincidence in the seemingly mundane with mystical or esoteric significance."

Henry Kenneth Alfred "Ken" Russell (3 July 1927 – 27 November 2011)

Ken Russell, director of the movie Tommy, based on The Who's rock opera, has died in his sleep at the age of 84.
I had only just secured tickets to see and hear Roger Daltery play the whole of the Tommy soundtrack with his back-up band at the 2012 Byron Bay Bluesfest and wrote about it in the post Who Are You? 
Ken was also the director of the movie Altered States starring William Hurt.
Thanks for the movies Ken.
Your art lives on.
