Post subject: RICO RODRIGUEZ RIP Reply with quote

new filtering trough is stating that the greatest trombonist of his generation Rico Rodriguez has died. Upset beyond words.

Have had some good times with him.
part of me goes with him- been a huge part of my life.
Thank you brother for all that great music and for being inspiring.

RIP

GUTTED

Goodnight Rico / wonderful man - my wife & I met him a few years back and he chatted to us for ages about life with the Specials and how Jools Holland had given him such a great opportunity to stay in the public eye.
Very sad and sorry to have heard this

I'm totally gutted after reading this very sad news, I knew Rico was unwell but I didn't know how serious until yesterday after reading a post on Facebook. I really thought he would get better but sadly he didn't Crying or Very sad

I'm glad I met him in 2012 even only for a few minutes but I will cherish the memory for the rest of my life. Peace & Love

Emmanuel Rodriguez (17 October 1934 - 04 September 2015)

R.I.P.

Very sad news, but what a life, probably doing something he loved until a great age. Always struck me as a real pro, no idea if in real life he succumbed to the artistic tantrums and personality clashes that I think have slighted my perception of some of my heroes. Rest in peace.

Sorry to hear this. He looked very frail onstage with the Spatial AKA at the Barbican last year so sadly not unexpected.

BBC News (05/09/2015)

Among those paying tribute has been Elvis Costello, who tweeted: What a moment it was to hear him play on "Rudy"
