This is intended to be a homage to very many musicians I've loved since I started listening to music. My intention is to tell what I know about them, hoping that those people who like them too, will help me fill numerous gaps, which I may have in their careers and discographies. Sorry, but there are no MP3 audio files here at all, just info (and love for the musicians).

April/2020: March/2020: February/2020:
  • Eduardo Bort (guitar) (Death: 26/February/2020 - Birth: 02/January/1948)
  • My short comment: Eduardo Bort was a great guitar player from my city. He released the album Eduardo Bort in 1975, a great album to me. I heard him many years later in a radio broadcast, his style had moved from progressive rock to more jazzy flavoured, but still very enjoyable, Some months ago there was a tribute concert for him in Valencia, with some of his musicians friends attending (such as Max Suñe or Jorge Pardo). He was ill for several years, and finally passed away on February 26th, 2020. A sad loss.
