The whole point of free speech is not to make ideas exempt from criticism but to expose them to it.

Dennis Noda Passes

Dennis Noda has passed away. He was an extraordinary bassist and music producer, most famous for his song "Land of a Thousand Dances," which he recorded with his band Cannibal and the Headhunters.

He was the bassist for the Classic Rock All Stars, which included Rare Earth's Peter Rivera, Sugarloaf's Jerry Corbetta and Blues Image's Mike Pinera.

Beyond his musical contributions to society, he was a fine man.

We were sad of Dennis passing. And now Jerry being sick. We loved to travel and watch the CRAS. We aslo consider ourselves very fortunate to have seen them perform many times over the years.
