Death’s taking a heavy toll on the music biz this week: Along with Donna Summer's death by cancer today, legendary bluegrass/country-rock banjo player Doug Dillard and go-go (a high-energy brand of funk peculiar to Washington DC) vocalist/guitarist Chuck Brown passed away this week. RIP to all three hugely talented artists, who were giants in their respective fields.
