It Is My "Unbiased Opinion" That Humboldt County And The World Lost Another Great Musician Lastnight

His family says that last night Eldin Green died peacefully in his sleep. I first met Eldin at the radio station. We wanted to feature feature a local artist on Fridays and play one of their songs but didn't want to have to deal with all of the calls and pressure from the many great local bands. Enter Eldin Green from one of those bands, Dr. Squid. He was running a web site called Humboldt which was an online hub for local musicians to get their stuff out there to the world to hear.

Eldin approached D.J. Pete Meyer and myself about doing a local music show and we told him about our idea for a Friday Spotlight and we struck up a deal. Eldin would pick the band and the cut and we would record him doing a short introduction about what we were about to hear followed by the song. It was a match made in heaven. We didn't have to be the bad guys for not playing someones song and Eldin had one more outlet to share Humboldt and the bands that are a part of it.

It was a win win situation for us, Eldin and the bands.

Eldin Green did a solo album of original music that while somewhat simplistic in nature has great grooves and hooks that keep you listening till it's over.

I will miss him.
