I was playing Mazzy Star songs only one week ago on my guitar at home. I saw Mazzy Star at both Manchester Uk concerts in the 1990's and will never forget them. The audience members were dumbstruck at the earlier concert. It was so jawdropping that it made your hair stand on edge. RIP David Roback. I'm going to play 'I'm Sailin'' and 'Blue Light' tonight just for you. I'll be a huge fan until the day I die.
