    Cage died in 1992, the date on the obit that Contratrombone64 just posted.

    The last concert appearance of Cage, in July 1992, was documented on disc:

    John Cage at Summerstage, Music & Arts CD 875

    And the Opus 20 documentary on youtube has some clips that I'm sure are from the Frankfurt concert that was to have been the 80th birthday celebration.

    Well, duh. My first reaction was indeed: I thought he was already dead.

    I never heard of his death, but I'm stunned it was so long ago, regardless it's the music world's loss for sure.

    I couldn't agree more.

    At least we had him for a good long while. And his memory lives on. And his influence. And his music.

    We're pretty lucky, actually!
