GUEST,jeff Obit: Jack Hardy - (1947-2011) (21) RE: Obit: Jack Hardy 12 Mar 11

Met Jack at a festival in upstate NY in '82. Rod MacDonald, Frank Christian, David Roche, Suzanne Vega, Elaine Silverman and several other forgettable acts were part of the festival.

The best part were the all-night jams. Rod knew every Animals song ever recorded. Frank Christian is the best musician nobody's ever heard of and David Roche is thee most talented individual to never make a dent in the musical world. Far, far more gifted than his 3 older siblings.

Jack Hardy and I spoke for a few hours about songwriting. We both decided that Ms. Vega would make it out of everyone there. Very perceptive man was Mr. Hardy.

He was very complimentary re my songs as I in turn admired his work. Though we didn't remain in touch I'm deeply saddened at his passing. He was truly well intended and as is said 'one of the good ones'.

RIP, Mr. Hardy
