Culture: "A tremendous, international and phenomenal guitarist, a wonderful composer and creator of both genius music and genius texts. He wrote lyrics for charming songs, right out of the box, so accurate. The most genius sentence in his songs that he wrote and I like the most is from the song 'My Town': 'Here Time is not necessary'. This sentence is genius in my eyes. You don't look at the clock here. This is a man I really, really love. He was so sweet, talented and a genius. He was also a humble man."



"He was already in critical condition a few years ago and he held on," Aloni added.

"Gained a few more years of life. I came to the hospital when he was hospitalized and he was on the verge of death. And then, when I was still walking on two legs, I went up to his apartment and he showed me his medicine bag - a large supermarket bag full of medicines. Kibinimet. A few days ago I wanted to visit him at his home and I couldn't because he doesn't have an elevator. I told the woman who took care of him voluntarily and devotedly that I needed to meet him somehow so that I could give him a text to compose for me. It's so, so sad."

Eli Magen, who was also a member of the end of days, said to Walla!

Culture because Clifton was a good friend of his.

"We have known each other for so many years. Everyone knows what an artist, guitarist and composer he was. He was from that generation of creators who created from the gut. This is not a man who finished schools and studied at the academy. This is his strength and greatness. Everything he played and wrote was something that was in him . and he really played from the gut. I think that's why he was so successful and reached so many people. It was something completely authentic. We had a lot of moments," he said.



"When Zahar Levy and I wanted to choose a guitarist for the band, there were several options, and when we met with Yitzhak, we immediately connected. We spoke the same language. We got along very well together. In the latter days, we rehearsed for many months. I don't remember any fights or friction between us. Yitzhak was a very easy-going person This one. We loved playing together. We were all on the same page. What's important to me is that he was also a good person, I loved him very much, and it's very difficult for me. Although Yitzchak was not a healthy person, it's still very difficult. My friends are falling one by one, and it's a feeling Terrible".



"I am very sad," Josie Katz also said.

"He was a close friend and I loved him. My condolences to the family and the many fans."
