Yesterday brought sad news of the passing of long time Neil Young side man, Ben Keith. Young first met the steel guitarist during the Harvest sessions in 1971, and from there a partnership was forged that would last until Keith's death of a heart attack at Young's ranch on July 27th. Keith's first big break was playing on Patsy Cline's 'I Fall To Pieces', and his playing can be heard on records by everyone from Todd Rundgren to Waylon Jennings. He also produced Jewel's highly successful debut album, Pieces Of You. R.I.P.
