George Duke dead at 67

2013-08-06 by http://i.imgur.com/uJrMNm8.jpg?1 | 18 Comments
It has been reported veteran jazz, R&B, funk and fusion keyboard virtuoso George Duke has passed away at the age of 67. This news comes after a difficult period for the acclaimed keyboardist and composer whose wife Corine passed away just over a year ago. This news comes not long after he had just launched his latest album, Dreamweaver.

Duke was most known by his long-standing partnership with violinist Jean-Luc Ponty, and his work with Frank Zappa and The Mothers of Invention from 1969 to 1975.

Fuck. FZ's band was in its prime during his tenure, and i'm sure he had the time of his life playing with them.
