Sad to hear of the passing of Emitt Rhodes…for those not hip to his music, his early solo albums from the early 70’s could’ve easily passed as McCartney solo album…he was a bit of a one-man Beatles and those albums are absolutely pop essentials #RIPEmittRhodes pic.twitter.com/Kj6WypMDU6

I’m sad to hear that Emitt Rhodes has passed away. I got to meet Emitt a couple times (in 1996, The Jigsaw Seen opened what was then his first show in 23 years) and last saw him at a BBQ in Echo Park on the Fourth of July, at least a decade ago. RIP.#EmittRhodes pic.twitter.com/FeNflgXBpi

Few Things You Need To Know About Emitt Rhodes
He is an American singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and recording engineer.
Rhodes recorded songs at A&M to fulfill that contract, but A&M decided to not release them at the time. Rhodes then decided to go out on his own and bought equipment to make a recording studio in his parents’ garage.
Rhodes recorded his first album (Emitt Rhodes) in that home studio. He got a recording contract with ABC/Dunhill Records, which released his album as well as the next two albums he recorded (Mirror and Farewell to Paradise). Rhodes got a $5,000 advance for Emitt Rhodes, which he spent on recording equipment.
His first album was a critical success – Billboard called Rhodes “one of the finest artists on the music scene today” and later called his first album one of the “best albums of the decade”. The album reached number 29 on the Billboard charts. The single “Fresh as a Daisy” reached number 54 on the pop chart. Rhodes opened at the Troubadour nightclub on February 9, 1971, concurrent with a large earthquake that struck the Los Angeles area.
