"Everything Goes in Cycles" Col. Bruce Hampton

"Bruce Hampton, a 70-year-old guitarist and singer known as the "grandfather of the jamband scene," died after collapsing Monday night at the end of the show billed as "Hampton 70: A Celebration of Col. Bruce Hampton.""
Atlanta musician dies after collapsing on stage at concert
If you have been reading this blog recently you would know I've been harping on about the Chris Knowles' post about 7s and years ending in 7 -
The Present Can Only Be Viewed from the Past
It is quite bizarre listening to Bruce talk in that video at the top of this post called 
Col. Bruce Hampton: "The music of today is horrifying"
Bruce talks about musicians who were prepared to give their all and die playing on stage...which he did right after he turned 70.
At the end of the video Bruce is asked who he plays in the movies he is starring in and he says he plays a 1976 drunken Elvis dickhead.
Elvis passed away forty years ago this year in 1977.
Life...and way weirder than fiction.
Bruce Hampton (born Gustav Valentine Berglund III; April 30, 1947 – May 1, 2017)
