Shine On - Musicians RIP Thread

Recommended Posts

Before I scrolled down, I thought it was the Heart sister that died.

To be fair, if you deleted all the pre-existing dead musician threads in this forum, you could fit the entire remaining contents into a Rolodex.

Sad on at least a few levels.

The thing is, musicians' deaths tend to affect us far more than your average movie person or even wrestler. There are still going to be plenty of stand-alone threads here, because we'll need them; that said, it's nice to have this for some of the smaller names that might go unnoticed otherwise.

Pegi Young, former wife of Neil, who sang and wrote on some of his albums, and ran the Bridge school, passed away age 69.

She was the one that had the kid with I believe cerebral palsy or something, right? The one he was together with for a long long time and broke up with unexpectedly? Why did they break up, anyway?

Yes. They started the Bridge school partially due to their sons needs.

Ah. I read the bio Shakey quite a few years ago so I thought that was her. 

In any case, RIP.

Damn, cancer takes another one.

Although he didn't have the largest discography, the quality was always there.

R.I.P.

Of the Monkees Tork lived life hardest. Some were amazed he made it to 50 let alone 77. I had the pleasure of seeing him, Nesmith and Dolenz perform in Detroit and it made me weep tears of jpy getting to see some version iof the band play with Nesmith. Tork is such an underappreciated musiccian it seems and probably had the most musical talent of the Monkees. Dolenz and Nesmith remain but all four remain in my heart

I heard about Peter Tork's passing this morning on NPR.  Someone needs to freeze Micky Dolenz and Mike Naismith in carbonite. :(

The last 3 Talk Talk albums are breathtaking works of art. It always broke my heart that he stopped making music so early on.

Big fan of them in the 90s with Fat of the Land being on regular rotation. Their work since then has been a very mixed bag, some great tunes but the rest mostly repetitive dirge. Howlett was obviously the creative brain behind the band, but Keith Flint was a perfect frontman for them.

I'm dumbstruck with the news of Flint's death.

The Day Is My Enemy has stayed in my rotation since release and was such a great comeback for them.
