people who are dead. but shouldn't be dead.

Postby Midnight » Thu Feb 21, 2008 6:31 am UTC

so i'm listening to moby dick, john bonhams rather incredibly and perhaps psychotically good drum solo ( http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid ... 5090266760 ) and i can't help but go "WHY IS HE DEAD." and i don't even like drum solos. They're often boring. This one ISN'T.


there's also keith moon--another physics-defying drummer who shouldn't be dead.

Then we have standards: Hendrix is one, and John Entwistle is another (here is an absurd solo that I attempted to play by ear but couldn't get past the first goddamn measure)

are there any other people that shouldn't be dead and could create the ultimate team of band people ever? (i'm thinking bonham AND moon on the drums, both are incredibly loud but it could work, the thunderfingerin' ox on the bass, hendrix and mayyyybe page on geetar, and Daltrey on vocals just cause he has so much energy)
uhhhh fuck.

Keith Richards (oh sorry, he just looks dead).

How about John Lennon & George Harrison? Carl & Dennis Wilson? Maurice Gibb? Oh, and Brad Delp, of course.

Might as well throw in Buddy Holly/Big Bopper/Ritchie Valens in there, too, for the Day the Music Died.

No questionmark! Yes! *wince* :cry:

And Billy MacKenzie, even if I only know him via his last recorded song (Pain In Any Language). I miss him most by proxy, though - by sharing the grief of some of those who actually worked with him.

Fortunately no musician I know personally's bitten the dust, or this thread would probably break my heart.

Lennon was assassinated, if you'll recall. If Lennon was still alive he'd probably still be writing music. Same goes for Harrison.

I also vote for Jimi Hendrix, Jim Morrison, Freddie Mercury, Duane Allman, some of the original members of Lynyrd Skynyrd, Syd Barrett, Jerry Garcia, and a few others.

The problem with Syd Barrett is that he hasn't made music in 40 years, it wasn't his physical death that silenced him. Though, I suppose, he was taken too soon.

My votes are cast for:
Joe Strummer
Stevie Ray Vaughan
Elliott Smith
Dimebag Darryll (not because I like Pantera at all, but that whole things was just too bizarre)
Shannon Hoon
Bradley Nowell
Kurt Cobain
Cliff Burton (maybe Metallica would have not, y'know, sucked it up)
Frank Zappa


I would never say I'm glad someone's dead (not seriously), but the following people's deaths resulted in some excellent music:
Hillel Slovak (Red Hot Chili Peppers guitarist, replaced by John Frusciante, who rocks my world of its hinges)
Andrew Wood (Mother Love Bone, Temple of the Dog was a tribute to him, resulted in Pearl Jam)
I have nothing to offer anybody except my own confusion.
And some old pictures.

I'm surprised we threw out Mozart, Dvorak, and Beethoven before we mentioned Cobain. We are entirely too cultured.

Sad as it is (and it's really fucking sad), we can't really complain about Zappa dying too early, was 75 albums not enough for you?

John, definitely. Though I wonder how the '80s might've treated him--lots of artists I respect made some atrocious mistakes during the '80s, even Dylan himself.

It really sucks that Bonham died...he was an amazing drummer and Led Zeppelin was/is an amazing band. I also really like Queen's music; it's completely different from everything else I listen to.
