R.I.P. Tim Hauser

17 10 2014

Today I pay tribute to a great vocalist we lost on October 16, 2014, local time in LA.  Tim Hauser who founded the vocal group the Manhattan Transfer passed away at the age of 72.  The group has been a huge influence on me in terms of my musical taste as well as my career.

I was thrilled to have had the opportunity to meet him in person in the last couple of years.  I was hoping to see him again during the next tour of the group.  Such great talent.  Too soon.  RIP, Tim.
