RIP Glenn. Thanks for the wonderful music.
Glenn Branca changed my life
A formidable talent.
Serious bummer. The guitar world needs more forward-thinking artists like him.
A true genius
<need to cogitate on this>
That sucks. RIP Mr. Branca.
One of my favorite memories was sitting third row behind the conductor for his 100 guitar symphony. It was transcendent.
Rest In Peace.
Total commitment to the moment.
OK. I’m back.
My guitar journey took me far from the well-worn path of the classic tropes. I first met Glenn peripherally through the Zorn Cobra game and the Knitting Factory, but more importantly I embraced him as a muse. I was a poor (as in poor) guitar toting noisemonger, seeking a broader pallet. Coming from the early electric Miles thing (with help from my sensei, P. Cosey), to Derek Bailey (bowing), to Sonny Sharrock (the roar of NOW), I found in Glenn the glee of the squall of free noise/improvisation. And found my religion.
Damn shame that he passed.
I remember as a anti-shredder back in the 80's reading about Glen and his impact on an emerging band out of New York - Sonic Youth.
Only as I grew older and developed as a musician did I start embrace Glen's perspective. Thank you Glen, may you continue your journey.
P.S. I shred now too!
I agree, and that's a word I use neither lightly nor often.
