Emil Richards Passed Away :-(

Emil was one of the best percussionists ever.

If you watched Bugs Bunny cartoons you heard Emil. Most movies from 70's to the a year or so ago that used LA musicians used Emil.

And he was a very good vibe player!!!

Anyone want to add anything?

Emil was an excellent musician. Rest in peace.

Emil was not only a great player he was a beautiful human being. I had the pleasure to work for him in the late 80’s and early 90’s and learned a ton just by watching him work.

jbdrums, what gigs did you do with him? are you an LA musician? Doing movies and all that?

I came to know of Emil though his vibes method books and recordings. This recording, done with Quincy Jones, is one of my favorites. RIP Mr. Richards! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GiZDP9mQ6YA
