Thread Name: Info: Sandy Denny's brother - David Denny
Subject: RE: Sandy Denny's brother - David Denny
David was working with our band's manager when he was killed. We were on the road when it happened. I think it was at night on I-25 in/around Denver, but my memory is fading. Not positive. Please correct if anyone knows.   
   He was such a good dude. Gave our band some great advice. We were going into a studio in L.A. to record our first album.   David told us to, in addition to the songs we'd been playing in the past, to also "wing" one in the studio. In other words, after getting the tracks down for our familiar material, to spontaneously record a new tune we hadn't even really worked up yet, and let the producer take it where he heard it should go.    Outstanding advice for ANY band, then and today.
RIP David.
