Sorry about Ms. Said and for all those who loved her, but glad to see a new posting on "If Charlie Parker..."

I remember X-Ray Specs from the early days of punk.

"I know I'll probably be remembered for Oh Bondage Up Yours!" she told 6 Music last month. "I'd like to remembered for something a bit more spiritual."

Oh Bondage Up Yours! is a heck of a lot more "spiritual" than the nonsense she was chanting with the Hare Krishnas for the last 3 decades of her life.

and no mention of Phoebe Snow passing away on the same day? Where are your priorities???

Sorry to hear of Poly's passing. 53 is way too young to shuffle off. Off topic and with an apology to Poly, what's going on around here? Did I miss an announcement? I hope everyone is well.
