RIP Syd Kitchen

Lost in the headlines of Elizabeth Taylor’s death, was the sad news that legendary South African musician Syd Kitchen had died too.

The Durban-born and bred guitarist had been diagnosed with stage four lung cancer and passed away on Tuesday night.

He was a true stalwart on the local music scene, if somewhat underrated, and someone who influenced many that came after him. Since the 1970s, he performed all over South Africa, and the world, and he gave us a number of albums that each contained the musical yarns he spun on his guitar. His collaborations with fellow musician Madala Kunene were a treat to watch.

A fitting tribute is paid to him here

RIP Syd and thank you for the music.
