“I felt like a punk,” David Roback said in 1990, “but when I picked up the guitar and started playing it, the music didn’t come out sounding punk. It was something else.” My obituary of the great LA-born producer-guitarist. https://t.co/a8BRqK8CDQ

This is awful. From Rain Parade to Clay Allison to Rainy Day to Opal to Mazzy Star, I’ve loved everything he’s ever been a part of. Have you ever listened to Opal’s ‘Happy Nightmare Baby’ LP? You should. RIP David Roback. https://t.co/6iMTrvH2jk
