Our great friend & Yard Dog artist Ian McLagan passed away on December 3, 2014.
Mac suffered terribly from migraines but decided to make the best of it by trying to capture in paintings the hallucinations that accompanied the migraines. That was typical of Mac: he was cheery and hard working even in the worst of circumstances.
As a member of the Small Faces, then the Faces, he was in the vanguard of rock n roll, and he played with everyone from the Stones to Springsteen. And he fronted his own band, Ian McLagan and the Bump Band, for 30+ years - first in LA and then here in Austin.
If you want to know more, start by reading his obituary in the New York Times or The Guardian. Read his memoir, All The Rage. Check out some of his art here on our website. And surely you have some of his music in your collection, so go listen to it now.
