RIP Brian Innes.

Brian Innes, amongst many other things, percussionist with the original Temperance Seven, died on July 14 age 86.
Possibly the most unusual band ever to hit the pop and the jazz scene Innes himself remained a character even after death.
At his request, the music played at the crematorium was Benny Goodman's Smoke Gets In Your Eyes!
We may never see his like again...
RIP.
Obituary.
Lance
