When Kevin Gilbert died unexpectedly at the age of 29, he was eulogized in the mainstream media as Cheryl Crow's piano player, but there was more to it than that. Not only was Gilbert one of the songwriting members of the Tuesday Night Music Club, he actually introduced Crow to the group, after hiring her to play on the tour in support of Toy Matinee's album, which had also been produced by the TNMC mastermind, Bill Bottrell. He was generally considered one of the most gifted musicians of his generation by those who knew him, and while his legacy isn't volumnious, it contains a few unkown gems, like his stark and lovely solo album Thud! and two posthumous works; The Shaming of the True and the almost utterly unknown masterpiece, the dark, industrial Kaviar.
