John McGeoch
August 21, 2004 08:30PM
A recent comment about Robert Quine's sad death this year made me think about John McGeoch for some strange reason. Maybe because in my view neither of them got the recognition they deserved by mainstream musicians. I never heard exactly how McGeoch died, but that he had become a nurse and left the business long ago.

He is not in my top ten list of all-time greatest axemen, but for some reason I've always had a soft spot for him, probably because when I first picked up a guitar in 1982, McGeoch was one of the first guitarists I came across who emphasized texture and soundscaping over physical acrobatics.

Somebody please write a more graceful eulogy for a worthy journeyman who knew what to do with a Yamaha guitar and a solid-state amp.
