My first intro to Bill was (ugh) a Hootie & the Blowfish cover of "Use Me.”

This reminded me that my intro to him was hearing the DMX sampled Ain’t No Sunshine track in the trailer for the Steven Seagal movie Exit Wounds.

Another one where I was like "I know that name..." and then one song hits and you're like "well shit."

A week later, and I'm taking Joe Diffie's death a lot harder than I would've expected.

When I die let my ashes float down the Green River
Let my soul roll on up to the Rochester dam
I'll be halfway to Heaven with Paradise waitin'
Just five miles away from wherever I am

 

Thanks John.

I don't have many heroes, particularly not from the entertainment industry, where phoniness is the order of the day; but John Prine has always been one of my heroes. While this wasn't unexpected (a 73 year-old cancer survivor doesn't have very good odds facing this disease); it still hurts like hell. Prine was the guy that everyone thought Bob Dylan was...  Godspeed, Mr. Prine and thanks for all the music!

The best Grammy moment ever.  Little Richard awards himself a Grammy and explains why and the crowd gives him a standing ovation for it.

RIP Steve Hanford, aka Slayer Hippy, drummer for Poison Idea, Resist, etc. I saw him on the tour with The Skull that they mention and had no idea it was him behind the kit. 

Goddamn was Feel the Darkness an incredible album, and his chops on it were supreme.

Old news, I know, but there are very few people I wouldn't argue over Florian Schneider in this respect.

Little Richard was more important to music than Florian Schneider? Yeah, OK. That's really, really saying something. RIP to both.

RIP Joey Image, onetime drummer for the Misfits and other bands including the Undead. 

My buddy that drums for our Misfits cover band almost bought a painted drum head from him last year. 😞
