Just heard France Gall has passed away. Damn. Never learned much about her personal life but have been a big fan of her music for a while now, and she was super cute in her heyday.

Jeff Cotton, aka Antennae Jimmy Semens, has died. He is responsible, alongside Zoot Horn Rollo and Rockette Morton, of 50% of my ADN regarding the playing of the guitar or bass. RIP.

Seems like he may not be dead after all. Conflicting reports etc.

RIP, my cool uncle. Thanks for leaving your cassette collection at my grandparents’ house for me to find at 10 years old. Led Zeppelin’s CODA, The Who’s Live at Leeds, British Steel...you inadvertently blew my little mind. Salut!

I always enjoyed The Cranberries, from time to time. Even the Zombie song, and that was a bit... meh, not really their style, a grungie song made because Nirvana. The records were generally quite medicore, but Dolores voice really elevated them to good records. RIP.

This would have passed most people on the forum by, but last week New Zealand drummer from the punk/new wave era Buster Stiggs died at 63. Played in the Suburban Reptiles

phpBB [media]


but most especially was known for this song by the Swingers which 100% of everybody in NZ knows.

So then a funny thing happened tonight as I was playing in the covers band as usual. There's a middle aged guy in the audience and he's a musician, and you can always tell because they do things like look at your hands while you play, and come up and squint at your amp, and generally pay attention to what you are doing in ways that the regular folk don't. It's really obvious when you're playing these kinds of bars. In music venues everybody watches you like that but in sports bars it might be only one or two or none.

And we played the above song, not because Buster Stiggs had died but because it's like Sweet Home Alabama to New Zealanders and we would have played it regardless. After the set the guy comes up and he says he was a musician on the New Zealand scene in the 70s and 80s and Buster Stiggs was his friend and he wanted to thank us for playing the song so well. He said we were really good, said *I* was especially really good (ha ha guys), but was disappointed to learn that we're just wasting our talents playing covers in this bumhole town. Yeeeeah those are my words but...

Now those fellas are terrific musicians, some of the best I've played with, but I know they aren't looking for anything more than to get paid $175 for three hours work. But for me it definitely made me feel like I've been stuck in this gig for too long.

Sorry, that story was all about me.

Anyway cheers, Buster Stiggs' buddy. Your friend died and we played his song for you tonight by accident. You made me feel like I should aim higher.
