The American musician David Lindley, multi-instrumentalist known for his prolific work and his many collaborations, mainly as a guitarist, in the 1970s and 1980s, died Friday at the age of 78 years, reported Saturday several U.S. media, without specifying the cause of death. During his career, the artist was notably illustrated with big names like Dolly Parton, Bob Dylan, Bruce Springsteen or Rod Stewart.
In the early 1960s, David Lindley was a member of the psychedelic folk group Kaleidoscope, before joining Jackson Browne's band in the mid 1970s. Alongside Browne, he brought his touch to the song "Late for the Sky", used by Martin Scorsese in his film Taxi Driver.
Later, he founded his own rock band, El Rayo X, and also gave more intimate shows, playing a wide variety of instruments (guitar, violin, mandolin…).
