Legendary house producer was 59: http://www.factmag.com/2014/04/01/r-i-p-frankie-knuckles-1955-2014/

Here's one of my first/favourite FK tracks, the Alternative Mix of "It's Hard Sometimes:"


And here's his 1991 compilation "Beyond the Mix" on Spotify:

The Whistle song holds up. Nice - what a good song. Sad to hear that FK has passed, he wasn't all that old.

You know, I'm embarrassed to say this, but somewhere along the line I got the idea that Frankie Knuckles changed his name to Frankie Bones and that they were the same guy. After looking it up today, I've realized they were not the same person.

In my defense, Frankie Bones has used a ton of aliases, and I can't really keep track of him.

A little more than a year after his death, BBC ran a special "Essential Mix" tribute to Frankie Knuckles. If you're interested in such things, I wrote a bit more (and linked the two hour show) over on The Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/CRZed/posts/10153236235294791

Actually....this made me laugh...they are covering "Angry Inch" from Hedwig and the Angry Inch. Should be swell, as their covers usually are.
