The news of Mirek Kocandrle's death hit us hard in the library. He brought his passion for rock music to our Punk Out event last year at which he spoke about the history of the movement and I played DJ. He poured 20 years of effort into his book Pop Rock Sounds & Vibes of the 20th Century (ML156.4.P6 K64 2003). He was a friendly regular in the library stacks.
It is at least a consolation that his legacy is captured in our collection of his works, including the many recordings of Berklee Performance Concert concerts that he contributed to.
Jaromir Kocandrle, 61
