Ukeobit: Bill Tapia

Bill Tapia, a ukulele player believed to be the oldest musician still performing, has died. He was 103; he toured last year and released a live album just six months ago.

He has been playing so long, one of his earliest influences was John Philip Sousa's band. Which makes Noel Gallagher seem like a modernist.
