Biography

February 16, 1971 – December 5, 2009

Jack Rose was a guitarist, originally from Virginia, USA. In the mid ’90s he joined the / group Pelt with Patrick Best and Mike Gangloff. Over the course of ten years and a dozen records, Pelt transformed slowly from an electric group, heavily influenced by Sonic Youth, the Dead C and Theater of Eternal Music-style to an acoustic group showing the strong influence of John Fahey. Rose, meanwhile, relocated to Philadelphia and began to take seriously. In 2002 he released his first solo LP Red Horse and White Mule, followed in 2003 by Opium Musick, both on the Eclipse Records label. (The two LPs were subsequently issued together on one CD by VHF as Two Originals Of…) Raag Manifestos followed in 2004 and Kensington Blues (both on VHF) in 2005.

His recorded collaborations outside of Pelt have been infrequent but include Jason Bill of Charalambides, Tom Carter, Donald Miller of Borbetomagus, Glenn Jones of Cul de Sac, Eric Carbonara and Ian Nagoski.

Jack Rose died on December 5, 2009 of an apparent heart attack. He was 38 years old.
