The versatile jazz-rock-funk guitarist Hiram Bullock has died, aged 52. His jazzier playing was showcased in the Gil Evans’ band. We know him best via his solo on the Jimi Hendrix song Little Wing, on Sting’s 1987 album Nothing Like The Sun. Sting recruited Gil Evans’ entire band just for that track, after playing live with them at the Perugia Jazz festival in 1987. Bullock had been suffering from throat cancer, accelerated by drug abuse.
