Rainbow in the Dark has gone to the other side. The voice that channeled the essence of the soulhome was always an inspiration and comforting to my existence on this earthplane. In his iconess, he told us about Heaven & Hell, Being Last in Line, Hoochie Coochie women (early career), Wishing Wells, Dragons & Demons and on many occasions warned us to Look Out. Besides being so prolifically cool, he also played with my all-time favorite band; Black Sabbath and in it latest incarnation: Heaven and Hell, I will miss him so. His music was a gift to many and will live on.

Although he is not known for exploring odd meters, here is one gem you can't help but groove to. From early in his career:

May Day

Well to most, this day brings thoughts of Spring, flowers, maypoles and perhaps labour parties - but to me it brings thoughts of FIVE, thats 5/4 and 5/8 of course, and some wishful thinking of 5/16. Whether you celebrate this day as Beltane, International Worker's Day or Lei Day, it wouldn't be here if it wasn't for the fifth month of the year. Just think what would life be like if there was not a fifth month, or (shudder the thought) if there was no FIVE at all. So let us honor and celebrate this number with some meteric coolness.

Whether you like 5 in a straight 5/4 song .....
Medicine - Monster Magnet 5/4

or if its just accented with a bit of 5/4 .....
Barracuda - Heart 4/4, 5/4

or if its a very famous 5/8 song .....
Take Five - Dave Brubeck Quartet 5/8

..... whatever your preference is, give yourself permission today to dive into the five jive, live in your hive.

cinco bien,
