Clarence Reid aka Blowfly – RIP


“Clarence Reid, the genius known both by his given name and as Blowfly, the Master of Class, passed peacefully today, January 17th, in his hospice room. His sister Virginia and I thank you for all the love you have shown this week. We also thank you for supporting Clarence’s 50 + year music career – especially these last few years. We love you and will keep you informed on services and tribute performances in Clarence’s honor. Nothing But Love, Tom Bowker”. Scompare a 76 anni l’artista americano Blowfly sconfitto dal solito terribile male. Produttore, autore, cantante (“the first dirty rapper”), nell’arco della sua lunga carriera aveva collaborato anche con Sam & Dave, KC & the Sunshine Band e Betty Wright. Nel 2005 la rinascita con la firma per la Alternative Tentacles di Jello Biafra. A febbraio uscirà postumo il nuovo album ’77 Rusty Trombones’. I tributi via social non si sono fatti attendere tra questi segnaliamo El-P, Flying Lotus e Aesop Rock.
