Rest in Peace VII

Two Media Diet-style musicians on different ends of the musical spectrum passed away recently. Steve Lacy, an innovative soprano saxophone player whose jazz recordings grouped him with such musicians as Cecil Taylor -- and who ended his days teaching at the New England Conservatory of Music in Boston -- died Friday. And Robert Quine, an Ohio native and punk-rock guitarist who played with Richard Hell and the Voidoids, may have committed suicide last week.

Rest in peace, you two.
