Chick Corea, the American jazz composer and electric keyboard pioneer, died of a rare form of cancer on February 9, according to his Facebook page. He was 79 years old.
“I would like to thank everyone on my trip who helped keep the music fires burning bright,” he read a message that he left before his death and that his team published in the statement.
“I hope that those who have a clue about playing, writing, performing, or in any other way, do so. If not for themselves, then for the rest of us. It’s not just that the world does anymore Artist needs it’s just a lot of fun too. “
