Nazism conspired to create a sense of festival time. . . . Tragically for humanity, the party generating it was the type not associated with the coloured costumes of the Brazilian Carnival, but with the brown-shirted thuggery of the NSDAP. The contrast between the dance and the march, between the samba and the strains of the Horst Wessel Lied, points to the gulf separating a life-asserting community from a community which exists only by creating a demonized other. - RG '97

Apparently Greg is fine:

I'm glad. Part of the sucky part of getting older (besides the fact that right now my left shoulder is currently hurting like hell and I don't know why, I skipped the gym today in favor of a nap) is watching the bands (and others, RIP Carrie Fisher and Don Rickles) get old and pass on.
Well, except Keith Richards. He will simply go on, pickled and smoked, until the world ends.

And btw I am old enough to remember when Otis Redding died . . . even Richard Fariña . . . and of course Morrison, Joplin and Hendrix. Marley. Not Buddy Holly though - but Cobain's death hit me hardest for some reason - maybe because I'd recently seen his band. Rufus Thomas too, because I knew him but he died much later and was in his 80s.

Cobain hit me hard, he turned into (though I don't think he wanted to be) the voice of my generation. He spoke to us 20-somethings who looked around in consternation, trying to figure out what the hell happened. Nirvana was a wake up call (really, all the Seattle bands were) to those of us who hated the empty vacuity of the music industry in the 80's and early 90's (though we gained some relief with thrash, classic rock and punk).

I'm old enough to remember John Lennon's death. My uncle and my brother loved the Beatles so to a large degree some of my youngest memories were The Beatles playing on vinyl and cassettes. Through them I learned to love the Beatles and their rich variety, even as a young lad Lennon's death hit me hard. Lennon became the voice of my uncle and brother's generation (though, like Cobain I'm not sure he wanted to be that) and he wound up embracing that role in ways Cobain didn't.

I think Ringo and Paul's death will hit me hard for the above reasons, the same with Jagger, because it will mean an end to the bands that I listened to as I grew up. It's odd, Layne Staley's death (Alice in Chains) didn't bother me as much, his problems were well known and to some degree his end was expected. It sucks how the music industry cannibalizes its own. It also sucks that talented people wind up miserably succumbing to substance and alcohol abuse.

I was a 40-something at the time and a huge fan. I was very fortunate to see him (with Half Japanese and the Breeders, that was one helluva show). I took my 12-year-old son, who sat several rows in front of me with his best friend LOL.

Exactly. (He edged backwards until, mid-show, he was sitting beside me!) We still talk about that night. It was one of the best 5 band performances I've ever seen.

Erin Moran was in a Roger Corman movie called "Galaxy of Terror," one of a number of low budget movies that came out in the late 70's/early 80's that tried to capitalize on Alien/Star Wars.
I remember watching it with a group of friends. We got into a contest at one point of finding the lowest budget gore fest at the local video stores to gross each other out with (yeah, I know, teenage boys, right?).
Anyway, her death scene was quite memorable, you can see it on YouTube.
It is sad, seems like her later years sucked, she passed away from cancer, sounds like she lost most, if not all, of the money she made.

That was an example of my obtuse sense of humor aimed at her musical aspirations. Apparently she was the Lindsay Lohan of the time: unhireable, unreliable and uninsurable for any serious industry work. Friend of mine from med school days worked at the LA County Coroner's Office then. Dudes there had a celebrity dead pool on the "qt" and she was at #6 on that list.

Iirc, the top two positions on that list at time were #1, David Crosby and #2, Grace Slick.

Yes, she is officially Misses Mark E. Smith for some time now, she brings him in Greece a lot, and she gave the most bizarre answer once:

Reporter: What do you think makes your band mate and husband Mark E Smith one of the most influential figures in punk?
Elena: That we did not recognize the term “punk”.

Very sad news. 'The Saint' and 'The Persuaders' were major hits when Greek TV had only two state channels, when I was in school.
And just to keep up on this funny Portocalos thing, I guess you all remember the great breath-taking cliff scenes he filmed on Meteora mountaintop monastery in Greece, 'For Your Eyes Only' in 1981, when he has to chase the double agent Greek villain Aristotle "Aris" Kristatos.
'Meteora' means 'hovering above us high in the air', or 'suspended up in heaven', and there are now some six or seven, I think, monasteries from the original 30 back in the time, all on top of these strange rocky mountains like vertical boulders on the flat ground.

Many details here:

- When James Bond Went To Meteora | MYSTAGOGY RESOURCE CENTER
http://www.johnsanidopoulos.com/2012/11 ... teora.html

- Climb the villain hideout in Meteora from For Your Eyes Only
http://huntingbond.com/james-bond-for-y ... ra-greece/

For the Meteora shoots, a Greek bishop was paid to allow filming in the monasteries, but the uninformed Orthodox monks were mostly critical of production rolling in their installations. After a trial in the Greek Supreme Court, it was decided that the monks' only property were the interiors; the exteriors and surrounding landscapes belonged to the local government. In protest, the monks remained shut inside the monasteries during the shooting, and tried to sabotage production as much as possible, hanging their washing out of their windows and covering the principal monastery with plastic bunting and flags to spoil the shots, and placing oil drums to prevent the film crew from landing helicopters. The production team solved the problem with back lighting, matte paintings, and building both a similar scenographic monastery on a nearby unoccupied rock, and a monastery set in Pinewood. This was all done despite the comment by Roger Moore, who told the monks politely that he 'once was a saint himself'
After the production of James Bond at Meteora, the monasteries were never the same again. Founded in 985 A.D. by monks from Mount Athos, one thousand years later in October of 1980 disturbed monks began leaving Meteora back to Mount Athos. The popularity of the film which brought many tourists and the disturbance from production no longer offered the monks the solitude and quiet they desired. Though problems with heavy tourism began about a decade earlier, when the monasteries became more accessible.


James Bond/Roger Moore made it again!

After a trial in the Greek Supreme Court, it was decided that the monks' only property were the interiors; the exteriors and surrounding landscapes belonged to the local government. In protest, the monks remained shut inside the monasteries during the shooting, and tried to sabotage production as much as possible, hanging their washing out of their windows and covering the principal monastery with plastic bunting and flags to spoil the shots, and placing oil drums to prevent the film crew from landing helicopters. The production team solved the problem with back lighting, matte paintings, and building both a similar scenographic monastery on a nearby unoccupied rock, and a monastery set in Pinewood. This was all done despite the comment by Roger Moore, who told the monks politely that he 'once was a saint himself'
After the production of James Bond at Meteora, the monasteries were never the same again. Founded in 985 A.D. by monks from Mount Athos, one thousand years later in October of 1980 disturbed monks began leaving Meteora back to Mount Athos. The popularity of the film which brought many tourists and the disturbance from production no longer offered the monks the solitude and quiet they desired. Though problems with heavy tourism began about a decade earlier, when the monasteries became more accessible.


James Bond/Roger Moore made it again!

For Your Eyes Only is one of my favorite (Roger Moore) Bond films. I also liked The Man with the Golden Gun. Let's face it, anything with Christopher Lee is great.

This thread sorta turned into the "who passed away thread" but it started as a memorial of sorts to George Martin and the Beatles.

XM Radio now has a 24-hour station devoted to the Beatles. I got in my car today and "A Day in the Life" was on, a favorite.

Anyway, wanted to share. The Beatles stretched the length and width of the musical landscape, sometimes it's just cool to sit there and listen.

No, I'm not stoned.

I remember the first time I heard that song. Parked with some friends in a Rambler, behind a school, late one weekend night. AM radio. We couldn't believe what we were hearing. I am not even sure the LP had been released yet. We had no idea when we'd hear the song again . . .
Nazism conspired to create a sense of festival time. . . . Tragically for humanity, the party generating it was the type not associated with the coloured costumes of the Brazilian Carnival, but with the brown-shirted thuggery of the NSDAP. The contrast between the dance and the march, between the samba and the strains of the Horst Wessel Lied, points to the gulf separating a life-asserting community from a community which exists only by creating a demonized other. - RG '97

I like the Stones. If they start a Stones channel I'll listen to it.

I find Dalton severely uunderrated. And maybe it`s a generational thing but I think Daniel Craig is the best bond out of all of them.

I will not speak ill of the dead. But If he were alive, you would not dislike what I would say......

And the Stones were better.. {!#%@} the Beatles :roll:


And Zeppelin was better than both of em 8-)

Wow, thanks. I hadn't gotten an alert about this yet.

RIP, Greg Allman. I caught some of their concerts on the old King Bisquit Flour Hour. I remember listening to them late at night as a teenager, keeping it low so my parents couldn't hear it.

I never saw them, I hate to say. I absolutely despised them when they first arrived, the whole southern rock thing irritated me for some unknown reason, probably misguided politics. I was known to have antipathy for them. One day a song of theirs I didn't know - I didn't now many - came on the radio (FM). I listened for a bit, not recognizing the band, and declared that the Second Coming had finally come to pass. LOL MY friends about half died . . . Of course they became one of my favorite bands.

For some reason I always liked southern rock, except Lynard Skynard. Can't stand them and "Free Bird" makes me wretch. But, there's that combination of blues and rock that the Almann Brothers had that I liked, along with some of the others.
