Ed Hagan, 1919-1996

Another true original leaves us

At his core he was simply a damn good songwriter--words, chords, and all. Conflicted, contorted, he never seemed confused when it came to putting things down on paper; It always rang with a special kind of truth. That in the end it seemed of so little use to him is one of those things that keep you up an extra 20 minutes or so on dry, windy nights.

Whoops!
The holiday season, gravid as it is with distractions and eggnog (and, as Homer Simpson notes, "any other kind of nog"), has produced a lamentable crop of errata in past Street Beats, to wit: The picture of Roshonnda Red Quotet was credited to Richard Kran; it should read Richard Kral. Because of a typo in the article on the Vas Deferens Organization, filmmaker Carty Talkington was referred to as Cary. In the Roadshow preview of Anson Funderburgh's January 4 show at Poor David's, harpist/vocalist Sam Myers' name was misspelled Meyers. After talking to One Ton Records' Aden Holt--who is the frontman of Caulk--we misattributed that august role to Casey Hess, who is actually in Doosu. There will be another benefit for Hess this Thursday at Trees. Crimson Clay, Buck Jones, and Tablet will be among the bands performing. Street Beat regrets the errors and appreciates the input of those who called them to our attention.
