Jim Hinde, Seattle street musician, dies in his sleep
If you've ever been to Seattle's Pike Place Market, you've probably seen Jim Hinde, who's played there past 19 years. Jim, 56, died in his sleep late Sunday or early Monday. Here's a great article by Stuart Eskenazi of the Seattle Times.
Mr. Eskenazi noted that the market wanted to pay tribute to Jim by playing CDs and placing an open guitar case in the spot where Jim busked. However, Jim's wife said the tribute should last only an hour so that another busker could have the spot. They both sound like very cool people and my thoughts go out to them.
And here's where to buy one of Jim's CDs.
