Lyle Ritz, R. I. P.

Best Classic Bands: He started out as a virtuoso ukulelist—yes, that is an actual word, meaning one who plays the ukulele—but it was in his capacity as bassist for The Wrecking Crew that Lyle Ritz contributed to best-selling recordings by the likes of the Beach Boys, the Monkees, the Righteous Brothers and Linda Ronstadt, among others.

The ukulele seems to be making a comeback...a bit too late for Mr. Ritz, I guess.
