Chuck Bird Redux – Ambient Rushton Podcast 126

Direct link to the MP3 file:  http://traffic.libsyn.com/ambient/chuckbirdredux-ambientrushtonpodcast126.mp3

This is a a live, 10 minute remix of my track “Chuck Bird” (the original is on my 2008 album “Flow”) using the iOS program Samplr. Created just after Chuck’s would-be 60th birthday and a little more than 11 years after his death.

Chuck Bird was an early internet friend due a mutual appreciation of British guitarist Bill Nelson and other artists.  Chuck coordinated and produced fan-created compilation albums of numerous artists, not just Bill Nelson.  We talked regularly on the phone and met once for dinner when I lived in Houston in 1997 and his work schedule brought him to town.

Bradley Charles “Chuck” Bird was born November 11, 1957. He died in Nashville, Tennessee after a 30 year battle with diabetes at the age of 49 on November 14, 2006. He graduated from San Pedro High School in 1975.

He’s at www.findagrave.com/memorial/65484618 – Green Hills Memorial Park Rancho Palos Verdes, Los Angeles County, California, USA – Plot Sunrise Slope 193, D – Memorial ID 65484618
