On October 30, 2013, another musician left our plane of existence, felled by a suspected heart attack. Pete Haycock was an important part of the U.K. band, Climax Blues Band, who rose to fame with a hit single in the late '70s, "Couldn't Get It Right," followed by the more pop-oriented "I Love You" in the early '80s.
But before those successes, Climax Blues Band rose to prominence with a series of blues rock-oriented albums starting as early as 1969 with the release of their debut, The Climax Chicago Blues Band. As the '70s progressed, the band shortened their name and released six more albums, each charting depending on how they were accepted by their growing fans. They also released a live album, Live/FM, which performed well.
Pete Haycock possessed a tremendous and commanding talent for slide guitar, with a strong bent towards blues. And like some important influential musicians, Peter Haycock left a legacy behind, focusing largely on his skills as an extraordinary guitarist.
