Wait; what? Why? His cover of "A World Without Love" comprises 1% of my station and I wanted to listen to more of his songs. Never mind Scott; I will pm you tonight on FB (before I inactivate my FB account 4 months from now.) This is sad and shocking news, bro.

Whoa, I just checked and his song is gone from my station too! I'll replace it with another one from Richard Scotti. I wanted a 100 song station, not 99. Should I delete his comment in SHOUT as well? I feel like I'm in the Twilight Zone right now. Need to get ready for work; so back later. Thanks for the 'heads up' Scott.

But now all his songs and his entire presence at IMP has just vanished? I don't get it, Bryon. He has done this before? When I first got on the Pipeline, I did see that he said he is back. This activity sounds like the poor man battles depression and self-medicates with alcohol or something else? I did see a comment he made that he quit pot. (I did that in 1974 when I was 23.) I feel really bad for him, Bryon.

I was planning to visit more with him and extend my condolences that his dear wife died four years ago and try to impart some comforting words. I am 66 and my wife is 65, and I sometimes pray to God that I die first. She is stronger than me, and has a much more spiritual and supportive family than I do. I truly do not know how I could carry on. I hope Lesley has someone to lean on and people that can assist him with his grief and loneliness and whatever else the poor guy is facing in his life.

I guess I am glad that he had just 1 song on my station, and not 10 like you. All I can do for the man now is to say some prayers for him. I was just getting to be acquainted with him. I feel sad.

The Jay Dyall Project

6/28/2017 9:13:07 PM


Well I think I've come close to maybe 25% of his music prolific output,
having a little over 200 songs at Soundclick while he had about 800+.

He participated in about 40 of my songs, some he played all instruments on,
he was in fact key in TJDP branching out with The Dyall-Tones.
Initially I wasn't thinking of a retro/60s approach to some of my songs but he did them so convincing that I just had to. Separating the two was necessary as TJDP was started to be called an Oldies-type band, when in fact it was just at that time
a fraction of my songs that had that sound, which became somewhat more popular than my more modern styles songs. So TDT was born.

Having personally known him since 1994, when I went to his then studio Artist Relief Studio to record my first solo songs outside of my then band, I will have to admit, he is a musical prodigy, a genius if you will. There's nothing he can't play. He worked wonders on my early recordings! And in 2005 he was the one to introduce me to transferring my then analog recordings into Mp3s and uploading them to online music sites.

I had told him many years ago he should get a job as a session musician in the big studios, but he refused. I also told him to start an actual band and play gigs. Again, that too he refused. I'm my honest opinion, the man had the potential and talent to had become a major player in the music industry, could had possibly be a millionaire by now.

But, the problem was, Lesley is Lesley. He does, and says, anything and everything that pops in his head. Sometimes it is welcomed, sometimes it is not. Oftentimes it's confrontational, as many of you here can attest to. Lesley is the type to have the "It's my way or no way at all" attitude. Musically, it's a good trait. As a person, especially in a social media setting, not so good, lol.

He and I butted heads several times over the years, usually it's been between he and I in person or via email. And it always comes to either a better understanding, or to a agree to disagree point and on to the next project.
But on a couple of times he bought it into this forum and it escalated to an ugly ordeal, enough that I left IMP myself for a few months. What I learned from that is Not to involve myself too much with him here on the Pipeline, which is why I rarely participate in this forum nowadays. More so on anything he already created chaos in. I choose not to participate that may add fuel to the fire.
(In another posting, someone asked why people don't participate in the pipeline, since it's evident there are many new songs being posted by them. Well, in my point of view, it's all those name calling insulting demeaning tirades over politics, and other topics not remotely related to music or how to use IMP as a good promotional platform, all that can be very stand offish, so they stay away).

But in all honesty, I love the guy, was like a brother to me sometimes, as I'm sure he may, or may not, say the same about me. Especially when his lovely wife Vanessa suddenly got sick and passed away. (She was really a sweetheart and the only person who could shut Lesley up with just a stare, LOL. I miss her.)

I was there for him to console him as best I could, but he lost himself in self-pity and substance abuse to the point where he almost died from it in a very short period of time. I in fact had the police check up on him when he didn't answer his phone calls or emails for a couple of days. When they arrived his then landlady had already called for the ambulance for a possible OD. He was taken to the hospital, where he would say, he died, and came back. After that ordeal, he stopped drinking and smoking pot, which was for the best. But the side effect is that he became more outspoken, and, well, the rest you guys already know.

I don't know if he quit IMP or was kicked out, as he had been kicked out a couple other sites in the past. But if he quit, rest assure, he will return. Good or bad, he loves IMP. I just hope if and when he returns, he will return as a more mellow person. And with less angry songs of topics no one else would ever record.
Oh, wait, but that's part of Lesley's uniqueness, isn't it? Like I said.
Lesley is Lesley. LOL

Lesley was a polarizing figure. From the time I acquired a fondness for him, I dealt with pressures here and elsewhere in regards to him. There are artists who used to be around who are not involved with us any longer because of his presence which takes up a huge amount of metaphysical real estate. It was very difficult to earn his trust, I never really did, and I feel like although I expended a tremendous amount of effort, more than anyone else could have, more than anyone could ever imagine, I couldn't seem to make progress. I was on a constant roller coaster ride whenever I was caught up in the Lesley vortex, it was draining, I was constantly on the defensive even though I was trying to be his friend. Now that he's gone I still feel wiped out, like I almost drowned or something.

He won't be returning, that's all I'm going to say about his departure. But if you want to hear his music, there are several stunning examples on the Coming of Age page. I'd direct you to the 2 Supergirl songs which even if you are not a fan of Supergirl, are 2 of the best songs this site or any indie site anywhere has ever seen. Also In The Sudden Rain, Pink Vanilla Corvette, and Ordinary Man which are arguably just as good. All those songs were predominantly Lesley and it was an honor for me to be a part of them.
