Some sad news, legendary musician/producer Jim Dickinson passed away on Saturday, August 15, 2009. He was 67.
Who is Jim Dickinson? He played with the Rolling Stones, produced Big Star and The Replacements, and Bob Dylan considers him "a brother". Our own introduction to him was Mudhoney's thundering Tomorrow Hit Today. His sons Cody and Luther play in the North Mississippi All Stars and The Black Crowes.
For more background on Jim Dickinson, we'll refer you to a wonderful remembrance written by Dickinson's friend Bob Mehr in the Memphis Commercial Appeal.
