Someone commented on my Andre the Gypsy interview to say that Andre died last month. I hadn't seen him for months - the last time I saw him, I passed on some personal information from someone from Andre's past who wrote me, wanting to get in touch with him... I hope that all worked out in a good way. He seemed moved by the request - don't know what happened after that.
You can hear various performances by Andre here, on his video blog.
