Yeah Sun Ra died in `93.He was past 80 I believe.I think you can buy his spaceship on Ebay I like the story about him playing an outside gig with Sonic Youth and Thurston says to him that he hopes the rain stops during SY`s set.Ra replies that he`ll bring the sun out.So guess what happened?It stopped raining and the sun came out when SY started playing
Some Ra footage here:

Yeah. I think it’s time for me to go to bed. My brain is way past caring about accuracies such as life and death–recordings that keep coming out post-humously don’t help.
Yeah, Bill Laswell, the Axiom dude. Although, I may be wrong about that too.
Anyway, I love No Bones. The "counterpoint" between the guitar and bass is exquisit (please don’t knock me for using the term "counterpoint") and then, it floats off on a plane… Love that.
