For Syd

Syd Kitchen is to South African music what the Sphynx is to Egypt; a landmark that has seemingly always existed, yet remains a true enigma. A teacher, thinker, and published poet, Syd Kitchen will always be, for me at least, the godfather of South African music. He is the very heart and soul of it all.

For Syd, a man who inspired more of us Saffa musos then he ever knew. You were always yourself, Syd. I have no higher compliment.

You’ll be missed.
