    Dickie Peterson, founder/vocalist/bassist of Blue Cheer, "Godfathers of heavy metal", has passed:

    Blue Cheer

    These guys singlehandedly influenced genres from heavy metal to grunge. Their first hit was Summertime Blues in 1968, and in the past year they released an amazing CD and a live DVD from Germany. They had a fascinating history, and I saw them twice in the past two years. They were the tightest, most powerful band I have ever seen.
