ITT: Musician deaths you're not/will never be ready for.
I feel that it's because you tend to build a connection with them through their art, whether or not you actually know them personally. They played a part in your experiences and had an impact on you, and then they're gone.
Nat King Cole
Sammy Davis Jr
>yfw suffy commits suicide upon the release of Carrie and Lowell, a beautiful 10/10
You know it's going to be a cold day in /mu/ when Mr. Mango dies.
goddammit THIS fucker is who I'm talking about.
I don't even want to think about it you guise
not even dude. jimmy buffet was middle-age core like 15 years ago. he's heading for straight-up geriatric
it'd be terrifying to lose him now that i've just found him (not literally just now but you guys catch my drift)
I love everything he makes, I know this much for sure, when he goes out, he is going to go out in a blaze of glory surrounded by music
But mostly this. The man's music is genius. His production is genius. His life was beautifully tragic, and now he is finally happy again. When he dies, a part of me will too.
He is literally beautiful. I would passionately love him and marry him
everything he has done man, the times those albums have helped me through
I'm sure he still has his moments, but for the most part his recovery seems to be going great. He really seems like the happy innocent hopeful Brian we love. He is coming out with a new album soon.
he's looking good for 66, though
on the same note, Bowie. He did a LOT of drugs, and has admitted to having heart problems in the past, so who knows.
I would listen to laughing stock and overdose on heroin
man when brian goes away i'll be completely crushed...
You just know he isn't going to live past 40, tops, too.
For some reason before I started coming to /mu/ regularly I was actually convinced for a while that Jeff Mangum was dead. I thought that was why everyone jizzed over ITAOTS so much.
I was surprised how I felt when Syd Barrett died. >Sat in a car drinking beer
>Listinenig "Late Night"
>Gf asks the problem, understands
>Drink all the rest of beer in 3 repeats of last night
> 12 pack punted into the pool, go to school
>In my 30's.
Singer-songwriter that's been around since the 70s, mixes a bunch of different genres but is most influenced by blues. Has a very distinctive growly voice.
Also known as Buzz Osborne. The founder and only constant member of the Melvins. Pic related.
Come on, dude. The vocalist and lead songwriter from Rush. You've seriously never heard of him?
same. David Byrne's a cool dude but idk that it will be a blaze of glory. I think it will be respectful but dude isn't really churning stuff out like he did. hell last decade was really good in terms of collabs and studio albums but he doesn't do any of them really anymore.
I just want one more solo david byrne album
you think so?
Yeah he doesn't release his own music anymore but I've noticed that he is his happiest when he's playing, producing, or practicing music.
I really hope its a blaze of glory, to his standards anyway....its gonna suck so much when he dies because people really only know him from Talking Heads and its not even a fragment of who he is musically
>Jeff Mangum will die in my lifetime
unless you kill yourself in the meantime
(what you should consider to do if you don't wan't to witness the death of your idol)
in other news: you're a faggot
>tfw 80% of these people will have faded into obscurity by the time they die and you'll probably never even find out they did until you google them one quiet tuesday afternoon 5 years after, to remind yourself of the music you listened to when you were young
Zappa too, but this one will come sooner than I'd like. There's another reunion he really fucking needs to do first.
Thank you for everything Lil B, you looked like jesus and you were the myth known as "Based God"
Few people know Based God but all know Lil B
>this one will come sooner than I'd like.
He's only in his 40s and according to all sources he doesn't do any drugs, and he's said himself that he despises partying and the rockstar lifestyle. He'l probably live to be at least 70 unless he gets run over by a bus or something.
I respect musicians a little more when I find out they don't do a shit tonne of drugs all the time. I feel like people in music do it just because it's the "life style"
I'd have liked to have seem him too.
>run over by a bus or something
This is exactly the kind of thing I'm thinking about. God doesn't seem to like Mr. Bungle, for some retarded reason, and the reunion is kind of inevitable since Trey played that FNM show somewhat recently.
It's a coin toss, really. I think if they managed to reconcile with Theo, so it was the core group again from the highschool days, the chances of it being worth it are much better.
Spruance has said that the reason it probably wouldn't work though is because they've all grown up and have very different outlooks and the mentality that made Mr. Bungle what it was isn't in them anymore.
They're also all talking about it from where they are now. Who's to say what would happen if chance got them together, playing privately (for whatever reason), with it their own again & not WB's. Maybe it'd be something different; maybe it's better off staying dead. We may never know regardless. Just sad they don't get more love.
You'll cowards don't even truly know this feel
>tfw jazz fan
>tfw all the jazz legends still alive are in their 70s and 80s
>tfw time is running out to see them in concert
It's kinda a dark joke with my mum that whenever we tell each other about an old jazz artist that we discovered the first question is "is he dead?". The other day we had a long debate over whether Lalo Schifrin was dead or not before wikipedia solved it. We assumed he was dead for years based on hearsay and because we never heard anything from him until I saw him in a newspaper article advertising a Barbican concert.
One that hit me particularly hard was Michael Garrick. I was halfway through discovering his back-catalogue and expecting to see him in concert one day because he wasn't that old in jazz terms (77) but poof just like that he died one day. And of course Horace Silver went not long ago.
>In lieu of her death, I felt a desire to be with her, so I felt like abusing drugs and alcohol and fucking around a lot and becoming reckless and hazardous was my way of being intimate with her. But I quickly learned that you don't have to be incarcerated by suffering, and that, in spite of the dysfunctional nature of your family, you are an individual in full possession of your life. I came to realize that I wasn't possessed by her, or incarcerated by her mental illness. We blame our parents for a lot of shit, for better and for worse, but it's symbiotic. Parenthood is a profound sacrifice.
That interview was so sad :/
No love for Robert Pollard? I'm disgusted.
>tfw he was around 37 years old when he released Bee Thousand
She is in the season of life which takes rather than gives, like so many other esteemed artists at the moment. It's sad, but we'll always have the records, which the new vanguard will interpret.
I wonder if it's going to have the same mediatic effect as Michael Jackson's one.
Hope this won't happen anytime soon...
Haha, nice try, Suffy will never die. :)
came here to post this.
first musician i 'fell in love' with, i.e. connected to his works so deeply.
i don't agree with everything he says or does but i have a lot of love for him and what he's put out into the world and some part of me will die when he does.
she's getting old guys...
also kevin barnes a little. soon enough his albums are going to be about necrophilia im calling it.
Yeah, Doug seems like the coolest dude ever
Agreed on Geddy
Please release some music before you die Mark
He won't, he's a strong man
You'd give a shit. I would at least.
She has at least another good 30 years left.
