PSB passed on ... 4 Months, 2 Weeks ago  
i learnt these last 24 hours that our friend, companion, team champion, contributor to the Dylan community has passed away after a time of illness. he's a member of the "The Dylanquents" team.

feels a bit bad that i still haven't been able to publish the latest game sooner, he could still have made his choices, maybe a very close friend or team member will be able to work in his spirit once i get the next game published, i'm bit too much involved at my workplace lately.

Peter used to send me an occaional email if something was wrong with the game or the scores, otherwise we were connected over at the social media FB. after i learnt of his passing i checked his FB threads, lately he shared videos by artists who's birthday it had been, the song videos he chose, so i noticed, were also often "farewell" related. perhaps he knew his time was nearing ...

he will be sadly missed as such an active & friendly member of the Dylan community ... & beyond ...

Re:PSB passed on ... 4 Months, 2 Weeks ago  
That's terribly sad, thanks for letting us know JoJo. Peter was one of the best and most insightful writers about Dylan that there was, always finding new and thoughtful things in his reviews of albums and concerts. He was also a fine musician. A sad loss. My thoughts go out to his friends and family.

Re:PSB passed on ... 4 Months, 2 Weeks ago  
That is sad news indeed. A great writer & amazing musical historian & dylanolgist & musician. I was lucky enough to know him since the days of smalltalkatthewall, the original dylan online hootenanny on yahoo chat in the early 2000’s. He was the moderator, musician & general encourager for the rag tag folks who’d gather on Tuesday evenings. I feel lucky to call him a friend.
RIP Peter!

.
I'll say this about Peter: He knew his stuff.

If anyone wants to know more about PSB, he is featured in The Dylanologists: Adventures in the Land of Bob, by David Kinney.

Re:PSB passed on ... 4 Months, 2 Weeks ago  
My prayers and condolences for Peter, his family, and his loved ones.

Much as my introduction to this internet existence of Bob Dylan-centric activity, I was interested in meeting Peter after reading an article about Dave Van Ronk not too long after Dave had passed away. The author was Peter Stone Brown, and, unlike my usual take on most writing about music and musicians, I found this to be pretty good. Good enough and with enough of a particular feel that I figured the writer knew Dave. When I say this Peter guy was going to have a gig at a club in New York that I also played at I decided I'd go.

More to come later ... perhaps.

Re:PSB passed on ... 4 Months ago  
A very eloquent tribute to Peter Stone Brown appeared in the Philadelphia Inquirer on October 23rd. There will be a Memorial Service for him on Satuday November 9th @ 10:00 to 2:00 PM at Philadelphia Ethical Society - 1906 S. Rittenhouse Square - in downtown area; this is where Dylan played his 1st show in Philly in 1963. I knew Peter very well through a mutual classmate of his and spent a lot of time with him and always saw him at area Dylan shows. He will be missed.
