Col. Bruce Hampton passed away last night on his 70th birthday after collapsing on stage during the encore of his own celebration.
of course there was the time I found him in my kitchen. #colbrucehampton
Sorry for your loss.
@david_a_schools beautiful soul... R.I.P.
@combophoto It's his Hollywood headshot. I think this is the one they flashed up onscreen during the Grammys. So good.
@david_a_schools @oteil_burbridge I just discovered this photographer and thought you guys would appreciate this pic of Bruce.
This picture used to be hanging in the old Green Heron on sullivans
This picture is absolutely amazing !!! Seems like yesterday. Beautiful photo
Col looks like a handsome bulldog - may he RIP.
Love this shot of the Col.
I’m sorry for your loss. But when you think about it... helluva way to go out.. poetic, even. Not everyone gets to be surrounded by people that love and like them, and are there just to celebrate the mere fact that they exist. So, see it as the high note that it is. Just my two cents..
@jennav5533 Thank you Jenna -
I am so glad to have been at his bday celebration - it was a night I will never forget...not bc of what happened at the end, the music and how truly happy and humbled Col Bruce was to be surrounded by all his friends. At the end it was weird, almost like he was passing the baton to Taz. Amazing pic of an amazing man @vincentjmusi Thanks for letting me re-live that.
May he RIP! Condolences to his loved ones!!
Way to go down, RIP
A great face. I bet he was a character. Nice capture.
My brother was at this show when it happened. He is such a legend and the way he passed, on his birthday, w/all the people he loved music with, was a perfect tragedy.
Legendary enigmatic man.
I clicked to your page to look at your dog photos and saw the Colonel! RIP.
