My friend Lydia Doyle died yesterday. She was the same age as Prince, so like him, she died way too soon. We used to go to see music and I would lead her through through places like Gowanus and the Lower East Side to see bands she didn’t know. One band she encountered for the first time that way was Steve Wynn and The Miracle 3, and they became one of her musical favorites. So today I’m posting the song A Fond Farewell, from the Steve Wynn and The Miracle 3 album Static Transmission, in memory of Lydia.
