Song of the Day: 'Look on Down From the Bridge' by Mazzy Star

Sad to read about the passing of David Roback, who led the 1980s Paisley Underground favorites known as the Rain Parade -- and later teamed with Hope Sandoval to create some of the best music of the 1990s as one-half of Mazzy Star, including the seminal tracks "Blue Flower," "Give You My Lovin'" and "Fade Into You" and perhaps their finest moment "Halah." I only recently learned he attended Palisades High School and later UC Berkeley with Susanna Hoffs, and that he and his brother his brother Stephen, a bass guitarist, formed a band with the future Bangle called the Unconscious. No cause of death has been released, but Roback was just 61. RIP.

From 1996's "Among My Swan"

From 1983's "Emergency Third Rail Power Trip"
