Rod Melvin (piano)

It was a great thrill for me to contribute to this tribute to Mick Ronson as the memories I have of certain David Bowie and Lou Reed albums are all infused with his sensibility and wonderful guitar-playing and arranging talents. Although I did not meet him my affinity for his work and musicianship has increased through working on these tracks.
