That Was Then/This Is Yesterday

R.I.P. Marco Eneidi (1956-2016)

Today I heard the sad news that Marco Eneidi has passed away. I had the chance to see Marco play a half dozen or so times when I lived in the Bay Area during the early 2000s, including a 2002 show in Oakland with Peter Brötzmann and a 2003 show at the Hemlock in San Francisco with his trio Sound on Survival. I also had the chance to meet and interview him in 2002 for an SF Bay Guardian article I wrote about him to coincide with a festival he organized in honor of his old friend and collaborator Glenn Spearman. I am posting the transcript of this interview here. I wish I could think of something profound to say, but in lieu of that, I just want to extend my sincere condolences to his family, friends, and musical collaborators. He will be missed. Goodbye, Marco, and thanks for the music.
