Two more to add to the list
There are a couple more names to add to the list of music people who have died recently.
David Egan, who has died aged 61, was a singer/songwriter from Lafayette, Louisiana, who was best known in recent years as the keyboard player and one of the vocalists with the Cajun supergroup Lil Band Of Gold. I first became aware of him when I saw Lil Band of Gold play a free show in New Orleans in 2007, which was followed up by an appearance at the Breaux Bridge Crawfish festival the following evening. The band did a tribute to Bobby Charles at the House of Blues in New Orleans in 2010 and the following year they played at the Shepherds Bush Empire when they came over to the UK to play at Lily Allen's wedding. In 2013 I saw them at the Rock 'n' Bowl and David sang Jealous Kind and his own composition Dreamer. They also played at DBA in New Orleans that year (pictured below). His songs were recorded by the likes of Irma Thomas, Marcia Ball, Etta James and Solomon Burke and he was an integral part of the original Lil Band of Gold, along with C C Adcock, Steve Riley and Warren Storm. Like the band itself (now known as the Mama Mama Mamas), he will be sadly missed.
