So, we've lost Lou, and now Bowie...is this man going to be next?
How sad will you be when the last of this holy trinity is gone?
We killed Lemmy with meme magic, but we couldn't save Bowie. We should have listened to Sheev.
Future seer here. Here's some notable people who will die in 2016 (no particular order):
Im actually listening to the stooges rn, bc im almost certain he's gonna croak next. Also cause I love the stooges.
If not Iggy, then fucking keith richards like come the fuck on how the fuck is he still alive.
Iggy is awesome, but what has he done interesting lately? His art relies on testosterone, which is fine, but doesn't really sustain him into his 60's and 70's. I'll be sad when he dies, but I'm still looking for great things ahead from dudes like Waits, Eno, and Walker.
Satan is putting together one hell of a band
Bowie fronting, Bolan on guitar, Lemy on bass, Moon on drums, Klaus Nomi and Freddie Mercury back up vocals.
Think Keith will be needed for rhythm
>not realizing that if what you say is true, TRT could take Iggy's art to the moon
Also, fuck, I forgot about Waits. He's been so ubiquitous throughout my life that the thought of him dying honestly never crossed my mind...FUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU....
>no Lou Reed on guitar/vocals
>realizes Lou is in heaven
this is probably really pleb of me but i worry every day for this man
JESUS FUCKING CHRIST O_o That man is 75!?! If Iggy isn't already on that shit, he needs to get on it NAO!!!
Fuck Eric Clapton. I hope he dies and ends up in Hell with the man who's music he exploited.
This woman has become so frightening to look at. I remember in the book 'Fight Club', when describing the girl at the support group who was dying of cancer and just wanted to get fucked one more time, the narrator said,"Chloe was the way Joni Mitchell's skeleton would look if you made it smile and walk around a party being extra special and nice to everyone."
if meme magic kills tommy mctomtom i will kill myself
Quads confirms!! Please God, this.
Only, I'm sure that in some sick twist of fate, he would somehow become posthumously honored in same way. Like they put the snare drum from 'St. Anger' in The Smithsonian.
Hey there fellow Waits fan. Just wanted to pass something on to you, which I had made a thread about last week. I've been listening to Waits for about15 years now, and recently, I have come to the conclusion that I think 'Real Gone' may just be his finest album. But the thing is, it is only so great when you actually listen to it as an album. Piecemeal, the songs don't hold up in the way some of his other albums do, albums universally considered to be his greatest, in that you can take 3,4 or 5 cuts off of those records and those songs hold up any time, any place as really great songs. Real Gone doesn't have that.
However, when you listen to 'Real Gone' from beginning to end, there's is a real experience there. It has a tremendous flow to it. These songs, they only really deliver their greatest potential impact when they have momentum behind them. And that energy comes from all of the songs around them. They rise and fall. Listening to them separately, I think they can kind of fall flat.
Think of it like this; think of a really great movie, one with an engaging story and excellent characters. Imagine there is a build up of tension in the film, and then there is a scene where some of that tension is resolved, like in a fist fight, or even an argument, or someone standing up for himself. If you were to view that scene without the context, it just wouldn't have the same effect.
It is a concern of mine that this newest generation of music lovers, and generations to come, will be so indoctrinated with listening to individual songs, that they won't be able to appreciate the beauty of a well composed record. It also makes me worry that album composition, too, will begin to evanesce into rarity or even novelty. That's one of the things I love about Tool. They really champion this cause by not allowing there music to be sold as a digital download.
TL;DR- Hey Waits fan, if you haven't really listened to 'Real Gone' all the way through, try it.
He's still pretty good live for a 80 year guy. Can still play and hasn't lost his voice. The one major concession to his age is that he plays much shorter shows now, typically an hour and thirty minutes while he would have done three hours a night in 1975.
What do you think of my analysis of it? I know tracks like 'Hoist that Rag' and 'The Day After Tomorrow' stand up really well on their own, but don't you feel that the album really works so much better as a whole. I mean, in the most blatant and rudimentary way, look at 'Make it Rain', which was released as a single on the radio before the record even came out. That song alone is SO much fucking better when you play 'Clang Boom Steam' to lead into it.
No he didn't. and >>61680650
no, it's not.
its going to be this man im sorry /mu/ but its true
If we're lucky, this piece of shit. I'm so fucking sick of his edgy try hard bullshit. I can't hate this hack enough.
I realize he's pretty healthy though, so we'll have to pray for him to be hit by a bus. Pray with me brothers
No matter how edgy Rollins is he is not really a try hard, he has a pretty clear way of channeling his feelings and thoughts so he might come off like that but eventhough he is a massive asshole he is very genuine.
Wow. It's just rap, dude. It's not a secret private club. I'm not going to debate the validity of rap 'music' with you, but I'm just going to say that it could definitely use some diversity and creativity.
I dunno, Iggy always seems pretty healthy and energetic. He stil tours occasionally and sounds good. Next is gonna be... hmmm... pic related
Basically like a 3 year old banging on a guitar. I mean, there was nothing there even resembling music. His voice is also totally gone and he'd lose his place or forget the words to songs he's played literally thousands of times.
Oh dear God, that was so fucking painful to watch. I have never seen an old black man get raped by his managers before. Well, not since I worked at Wal-mart anyway.
Pic related- how my ears felt listening to this.
BB King and Pinetop Perkins were both a lot better than this in their twilight years. These aren't outstanding gigs compared to their prime, but at least they actually play something resembling music.
You hate to think it but they're all going to start dropping like flies. All the boomers anyway. That generation's grip on the culture has been so ubiquitous for so long, we tend to ascribe a certain immortality to them. But I'm telling you. Any musician born before 1950 or so is on that train. And it's going to be moving fast.
JEEZUS FUCK!!! How does that happen? And it looks like that's just a puppy too. Who let's shit like this happen to their dog?
So people die. Big deal. Ashes to ashes, dust to dust, Buddhist cycle of death and rebirth and all that. For every talent that leaves us, a young new one is born. Lose Frank Sinatra, gain Annie Clark.
I don't care at all, I'm just stating the facts. Feels like a whole bunch of celebs are going to go at once, like a culling. Because of the culture, people forget someone like Springsteen is 66. They forget this all the time. And he's one of the younger ones.
Pinetop was injured in a car wreck when at 92, he tried to beat a train at a crossing. He drove around the barriers and got hit. His car was totaled, but he was unscathed.
That's as impressive as it gets for that age. Not only that he didn't get hurt in the accident, but to still be mentally capable of doing something as complex as navigating around a crossing barrier. Or being brave enough to try and outrun a train considering most elderly people are pretty damn cautious/terrified of any risks.
Yeah but there wasn't as many of them and most of them were out of the limelight by the time they went. Boomers are a whole different animal, they like ran this shit and didn't let go quite so easily. There's never been so many famous people in their sixties and seventies still actively engaged with the culture.
Pretty much all of the big band generation have gone off to Heaven now, but many of the 50s rock-and-rollers are still with us including Chuck, Fats, Little Richard, and Jerry Lee Lewis. Millenials will be middle aged by the time we bury the last hippie-era guys.
I have always thought Courtney did it since kurt and Courtney came out
but the newest movie proved it imo
she acted so fucking suspicious during the interviews with the pi
she had to have done it imo
nothing else makes sense
one of our most important jazz musicians guys
he's still with us mu
This was from a commentary by Christgau on Bing Crosby (he was reviewing a Crosby's greatest hits CD set).
"By most measures, Bing Crosby was the biggest entertainer of the first half of the 20th century. For longer than FDR was president, he mastered all forms of media. Among other things, he pioneered the arts of tape recording and microphone placement. I had long found it difficult to appreciate his recordings as the techniques he developed have been surpassed, but also because he had a certain artificial quality that makes him fall apart if you become aware of it. The only song on this set the younger generation are likely to be familiar with is White Christmas, but for those of us who remember things before the rock-and-roll era, they were a part of our collective consciousness. I can remember my elders singing Crosby's tunes at parties and I knew the words to Swinging on a Star by the age of 4. This was a time when popular music was dominated by Tin Pan Alley, when Irving Berlin ruled. To my generation, it's central to our childhoods, to the younger crowd, a curious glimpse into a bygone culture."
If Aaron isn't able to stay sober on this reunion tour thing, I could see it happening. :(
I've never heard that Chuck has Alzheimer's or anything, but I do know his hearing and eyesight are really weak which along with arthritis issues would definitely affect his ability to play.
When you can't hear what you're playing, can't see your fretboard, and have stiff as hell fingers, of course the end result is >>61681602
Ticks. My parents have a nice house near wild forest, so occasionally their dogs in the summer get a few of those when they walk though the grass
Fucking disguting animals. I enjoyed removing like fucking 20 off my dog, then putting them on a metal cupcake form, adding a little gasoline and setting them on fire
20 years could be low. I'm pretty sure he's super healthy, he should live into his 80s at least. Although he is a Jehovah's Witness and I think they have weird rules about medical stuff, so he could end up dying because of that.
If you kill Prince with meme magic, so help me God....
>2016 starts with Bowie dead
Watch this be the year where every old musician you give a shit about dies.
WATCH IT FUCKING HAPPEN.
