ARTHUR LEE, the enigmatic and volatile frontman, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist of the legendary Los Angeles psychedelic band Love, best known for the critically revered 1967 album, Forever Changes, has died in a Memphis hospital after a battle with leukemia, his manager said on Friday. He was 61. Bands as diverse as Led Zeppelin, Echo and the Bunnymen and Siouxsie and the Banshees cited Love as an influence. The band's self-titled debut yielded the hit single "My Little Red Book," written by Hal David and Burt Bacharach (and later covered by Pate in its early days). There are also classic clips like "A Message to Pretty" and "Your Mind And We Belong Together" are posted on YouTube, along with Calexico covering "Alone Again Or" from Forever Changes just last month. Lee had also been the honoree of a benefit concert in June -- here's Robert Plant playing Zep's "What Is And What Should Never Be" at that show. You should also be able to find plenty of Love to stream via the Hype Machine.
