Music News - Tin Angel To Be Sold; Philly Fans Destroy Stage video; Thriller Writer Passes Away
  by: iradioal - Philadelphia, PA

Legendary music venue Tin Angel and the restaurant Serrano on S. 2nd Street in Old City are set to be sold in the coming months. Serrano has been serving food in that location since 1985. The Tin Angel opened upstairs in 1992. The landmark room has been a hallmark stop for singer-songwriters both locally and nationally. The intimate atmosphere and sound attracted many fans over the years. Building and business owner Donal McCoy says it's time for him to move on. He bought both from the original founders 10 years ago. He does plan to revive the Tin Angel somewhere else. The final sale may not be until January. Until then, all scheduled shows will continue.

Fans attending a concert at the Explanada de Philadelphia in the city's Spring Garden section last Saturday destroyed tens of thousands of dollars worth of sound and lighting equipment when Mexican music star Gerardo Ortiz did not show. The event was held on October 1st at 820 Spring Garden St. Banda Machos and Ortiz were both on the bill. Banda Machos did play. Ortiz's band played three songs before the crowd was told that Ortiz himself would not be coming out. Patrons had paid upwards of $50 to attend the concert and were told there would be no refunds. That's when dozens of fans began to detroy the rented sound and lighting equipment and tear up the stage. Beer cans were hurled and the musical intruments left by the band were trashed. The promoter estimates that $30,000 in damage was done. Ortiz posted on his Facebook that he was sorry but could not play because of health reasons.

British Composer and Musician, Rod Temperton, died last week in London at the age of 66 after battling cancer. Temperton is best known as 'The Invisible Man' for penning some of the greatest hits of all time. He wrote Michael Jackson's hit singles "Thriller," "Rock With You" and "Off the Wall." As the keyboardist for disco funk band Heatwave, he wrote the hits "Boogie Nights" and "Always & Forever." He also wrote for Karen Carpenter, Aretha Franklin, Herbie Hancock, Donna Summer, the Manhattan Transfer, Quincy Jones and Michael McDonald.
