Joe Zawinul
From http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Joe_Zawinul

quote:
Josef Erich Zawinul (July 7, 1932 – September 11, 2007) was a jazz keyboardist and composer. He was one of the front runners in the development of jazz fusion along with Chick Corea, Herbie Hancock, John McLaughlin and Miles Davis. Best known as the founder of the band Weather Report, with Miroslav Vitous and Wayne Shorter with whom he had previously recorded two albums as part of Davis' studio band, in his final years he headed the ensemble called The Zawinul Syndicate.

I found out from the WFMU blog:

Composer Karlheinz Stockhausen Passed Away on December 5th 2007
http://www.stockhausen.org/

From allmusic.com:

quote:
Karlheinz Stockhausen emerged early on as one of the most influential and unique voices in the post-WWII European musical avant-garde and his prominence continued throughout the rest of the twentieth century and into the twenty first. Combining a keen sensitivity to the acoustical realities and possibilities of sound, rigorous and sophisticated compositional methods expanded from integral serialism, innovative theatricality, and a penchant for the mystical, Stockhausen remains one of the most innovative musical personalities to span the turn of this century.

Dan Fogelburp in "Bloom County"
See the 3rd cartoon down at http://www.berkeleybreathed.com/pages/favorite_strips.asp

Looking at the cartoon, Opus actually says "Fogerburp".
