Thanks for these David. Once again they highlight the tragedy of one so young, so talented yet so blind to the dangers of being a rock star.

I appreciated Tommy's work with the James Gang and Deep Purple (to an extent) but I feel if he was still alive today, he'd be boring me to death with endless instrumental excursions into jazz (ala Geoffrey Arnold Beck)!!!!!!
