RIP: David Bowie

CATAGORIES: REST IN PEACE,Rock & Roll — FloridaBill @ 8:15 am

The Thin White Duke is dead. David Bowie passed away yesterday after a battle with liver cancer. He had just turned 69 and released a new album called “BlackStar”. The single “Lazarus” seems to be a farewell of sorts as it starts with the lyric “Look up at me, I’m in heaven” and the video for the song closes with Bowie entering a closet and closing the door in casket-like fashion. RIP Ziggie. This guy had an amazing influence on music and the planet. I consider his album that has “Young Americans” and “Fame” to be the best bedroom music of all time.

Oh No! Ian “Lemmy” Kilmister has died.

CATAGORIES: GREAT QUOTES,OLD FRIENDS,REST IN PEACE,Rock & Roll — FloridaBill @ 8:10 am

Lemmy from Motorhead has passed away. I am speechless. Play some Motorhead and Hawkwind really loud in his honor. Upon arrival in the afterlife, Lemmy announced, “We are Motorhead. We play Rock & Roll. We are gonna kick your ass”. He and Philthy are together again. Fast Eddie can’t be too far behind… RIP Lemmy. Once again, I had women in my office asking me WTF I was playing on my phone. I simply said “Motorhead” and resumed working. I couldn’t bring myself to tell them that Lemmy had died. Here are some great Lemmy quotes:

“I don’t do regrets. Regrets are pointless. It’s too late for regrets. You’ve already done it, haven’t you? You’ve lived your life. No point wishing you could change it.” – via Classic Rock

“This entire generation seems to have become pussies, you know? Nobody seems to enjoy themselves much anymore. They are all knocking each other down for enjoying themselves.” – via a 1988 interview with David L. Wilson

“Death is an inevitability, isn’t it? You become more aware of that when you get to my age. I don’t worry about it. I’m ready for it. When I go, I want to go doing what I do best. If I died tomorrow, I couldn’t complain. It’s been good.” – via Classic Rock

RIP Lemmy. You deserve some peace and quiet.
