David Axelrod

Added on by Jeff Harrison.

Sad to hear that David Axelrod, the American musician/composer and fellow Blakean died on February 5th due to complications from a brain aneurysm. He was 85.

Axelrod, like his London inspirer, never reached the audience he deserved in his lifetime, but his debut album Songs of Innocence, release in 1968 and named after William Blake's llustrated collection of poems, perhaps remains his best known work. It's a majestic and haunting piece of art. RIP good sir.
