Ray Bradbury Is No More

Though this is not directly Prog related, the sad news came this morning that Sci-Fi author Ray Bradbury died in Los Angeles, California, after a lengthy illness, at the age of 91.

Sci-Fi has been a staple of prog music almost from its beginnings ("Get'em Out by Friday", is a sci-fi themed song if ever there was one), and Bradbury's novels and short stories have inspired many a musician.

It is also fitting, though, that Bradbury chose a headstone that reads "Author of Fahrenheit 451".

Rest in peace.
