R.I.P Joel Hastings
« on: May 27, 2016, 09:48:58 PM »
 Today is a sad day for me as I think about Joel Hastings, who passed away yesterday at the young age of 46 from an unexpected heart attack. He was a brilliant pianist, and an extremely kind person, who was so kind and genuine in the few conversations we had together. Let's enjoy one of his recordings to honor his life and passing.  




Best,

AJ

I saw this on slippeddisc earlier. I rather liked his playing; definitely one of my favourites of those pianists I discovered online. Sad news.

Iím sure he has inspired many with his kindness and very fine playing.  Hopefully his followers will also be inspired to live as healthy a life as possible through proper diet and exercise with hopes of possibly lowering the chance of having a heart attack at such an early age.  Thank you for sharing this.
