The 2017 rock related Obituary Thread

Yes… 2016 was not a good year for rock because of the many great artists passing away but it was a great year for Stones fans: tour in Latin America including playing is some countries for the first time, live dates in the USA, many releases of material from the vaults (Totally Stripped, Stones in Mono), new live album and movie (Havana Moon), a great documentary Olι Olι Olι, a great  new studio album, a video with Kristen Stewart, singles, exhibitionism etc

I don’t want to be pessimistic but realistic, wait for a worse year in 2017 in terms of musicians passing, the life expectative in Europe and the USA is 78 years, and if the distribution is normal, many people in between 74 and 82 years will pass next year. So be prepared!

Fortunately, the list for 2017 does not have any of the Stones current members and we will have them rocking live and in the studio, releasing more new stuff and cool stuff from the vaults

This is a normal distribution curve, just imagine that 78 years old is the point in the middle

...

Wish you the best, be successful but specially be happy and make others happy you lovely B&B!

PS. Live your life to the extreme!

I agree, VooDoo.  2017 is going to suck, on many fronts.  It's time to batten down the hatches and hunker in for one FUCKED up year.  And I guarantee there will be no Rapture or return of J. Christ to save this stuff.  It's not in the cards. Fucking 2018 can't get here soon enough.

Mick Jagger's father, Basil, lived to be 93 years old.  Also, Mick Jagger eats healthy and exercises regularly.  He does not smoke or drink alcohol.  He is a happy person with a positive outlook on life!  In other words, he is going to live forever!  Yay!

I'm just trying to stay optimistic and hope with all my might that 2017 will be easier, more fun and with less appearances by the Grim Reaper. Jesus, it has to be. Let's keep our fingers crossed!

Well, this is the sad thing about the arts and culture.  You grow up watching and listening to talented people older than you, maybe even just a couple years older by the time you're a teenager, and you say, "That's what I want to do," or at least you decide that you want to make their work a part of your experience forever.  Sometimes the last part happens whether you intend it to or not.  Then, when you yourself are on the downslope, those people start "returning to nature," as they say - though not always in natural or pleasant ways.  And you feel somewhat betrayed by life.  This happened a bit to my mother when she was in her last years.  Yet 2016 seemed rather heavy-handed as far as star mortality goes, so the sense of betrayal seems a bit less irrational.  When Bowie went, people of all ages seemed to rebel against the very idea of mortality, so great seemed his vitality.

My mother, who died at 70 in 2003, loved Prince in the 1980s, and insisted on my taking her to one of the Purple Rain tour shows.  (At which we saw plenty of older people of all races, accompanied by younger family.)  She'd have been unhappy if he had passed before her, being younger.   She loved Debbie Reynolds, too, and turned me on to Singin' in the Rain.

Myself, I've tried to look at reality, and have steeled my heart a bit toward waking up one day and reading the news - oh, boy - that one of the Stones has passed, or Dylan.  But Bowie in the New Year was a sucker punch, being that the seriousness of his condition was not widely known.  Couple that with Prince by misadventure, and....  In some ways, all of us waking up to read about Bob Dylan's Nobel win was a way of seeing death cheated in this awful year.  But remember...in places like Aleppo, they don't have time for the luxury of such funereal pleasures.

I'm pretty sure Mick enjoys a glass of wine in moderation.

I agree, VooDoo.  2017 is going to suck, on many fronts.  It's time to batten down the hatches and hunker in for one FUCKED up year.  And I guarantee there will be no Rapture or return of J. Christ to save this stuff.  It's not in the cards. Fucking 2018 can't get here soon enough. 


moondrop, believe that shit if you must. I refuse to accept that. 2017 best ever!!

I repeat myself... The whole thread or just Pako Gerrte's forecast?

Death is real and each second it is a second closer, so my guess is that 2017 will have more farewells of rock stars and growing each year until 2023 and then less and less but the highest will be around 2023

Sorry but that’s a rule of life and life is a bitch or a bastard

Bruce Hampton, 'granddaddy of the jam scene,' dies after gig

By Lisa Respers France and Stephanie Gallman, CNN
Updated 1936 GMT (0336 HKT) May 2, 2017

http://edition.cnn.com/2017/05/02/entertainment/bruce-hampton-obit/

Atlanta (CNN) — Death came for Bruce Hampton as he celebrated his 70th birthday doing what he did best -- jamming on stage.

Hampton, known as the "granddaddy of the jam scene," collapsed on stage while rocking out Monday night during a concert held in his honor in Atlanta.

...

His agent, Micah Davidson of Midwood Entertainment, confirmed to CNN that the musician died. He gave no further details.

Warren Haynes, the Allman Brothers Band guitarist who was on stage performing with Hampton, posted a statement Tuesday on his official Facebook page asking for privacy for Hampton's loved ones.

"After collapsing on stage surrounded by his friends, family, fans and the people he loved, Col. Bruce Hampton has passed away," the statement said. "The family is asking for respect and privacy at this difficult time."

The all-star event, held at Atlanta's Fox Theatre, was billed as "Hampton 70: A Celebration of Col. Bruce Hampton."

The stage was packed with performers -- including Dave Schools of Widespread Panic, Phish drummer Jon Fishman and Rolling Stones keyboardist Chuck Leavell -- when the seasoned musician appeared to take a knee, then lay down as 14-year-old guitarist Brandon "Taz" Niederauer shredded chords on one of Hampton's favorite songs, "Turn on Your Love Light."

Some in the audience thought the guitarist's actions were a part of the show.

Those on stage continued to perform. They included actor Billy Bob Thornton, who cast Hampton in a small role in his critically acclaimed 1996 film "Sling Blade," Blues Traveler frontman John Popper, and Susan Tedeschi and Derek Trucks of the Tedeschi Trucks Band.

Then people came out from the wings and carried Hampton off stage. The song abruptly ended

An ambulance arrived shortly thereafter and took Hampton away as dozens of fans watched quietly.

Born and raised Gustav Valentine Berglund III in New York City, Hampton was beloved in the music industry as a founding member of the rock blues quintet the Hampton Grease Band, which got its start in Atlanta.

While the band released only one album, "Music to Eat" in 1971, it developed a bit of a cult following, and Hampton went on earn a reputation as one of the best jam musicians in the industry.

He was the subject of a 2012 documentary, "Basically Frightened: The Musical Madness of Colonel Bruce Hampton."

Hampton he gave an interview in 2015 to the site Live For Live Music in preparation for his reunion tour with the Aquarium Rescue Unit.

He spoke of his extensive career, which stretched from playing in bands in the 1970s to doing voice-over work in commercials for brands such as Popeyes fried chicken and Motel 6.

"I was a lasso instructor and a lariat importer, and they were all weird, fleeting jobs," he told the site. "I've been fortunate to do music all my life, and I've done enough acting to make it fun."

Fans, including a few famous ones, grieved Hampton on Tuesday.


"So so sad to say goodbye to the great & wondrous Col. Bruce Hampton," Chris Robinson of The Black Crowes and Chris Robinson Brotherhood told CNN in a statement. "The music world lost one of a kind last night, a true original, a man who heard the light! God speed Col. Bruce, we miss you."

Added longtime friend Oliver Wood of The Wood Brothers, "Just by example, he taught us to challenge our ideas about music and what it's for. Bruce was equal parts prankster and mystic. He was serious about music, but also taught us not to take ourselves too seriously. He was a one of a kind human. What an honor to be with him on his final night."

Vocalist and saxophonist Karl Denson called Hampton "the poet of some undefined movement that all the artists came to for wisdom and clarity."

"Once you connected with him, you felt inspired not to be jive, to know what was important and take chances," Denson said in a statement. "Most of all, he made us supremely happy."

Leavell, the keyboardist who tours with The Rolling Stones and was part of the Allman Brothers Band in the 1970s, said Hampton died doing what he loved.

"A poetic exit," said. "And I'm sure if he had written the script himself, that would've been the last page of the last chapter."

CNN's Jason Morris contributed to this report.

He passed away doing what he loved, jamming!

During his last minutes of life he played Rip This Joint with Chuck Leavell playing too

Oh wow I didn't know some of these people were dead ~ but when your number is up, it's up, and so why are we so surprised when it happens? Because it forces us to face the fact that we're all gonna die. Cry

Every morning I open the papers and say, O bitch, this be thine obituary.

When I was little, my Polish-American great-aunt thought obituary was a dirty word. 

Today I suspect it's geographical: the Obituary Peninsula.  The Obituary Islands.

Molto obituario, signore!

Grin My Polish friend called a pedestrian crossing, a Presbyterian crossing, for years. In Australia, we refer to the hard shoulder of a road as the hard edges, or according to Barbara; our Polish friend, the hard eggs darggiling. Wink

Sad to add Chris Cornell to this list

Technically speaking this was an outlier, too Young to die

RIP Chris

RIP Chester Bennington (1976 - 2017) too Young to die

Just in case... He was the lead singer of Linkin Park

Supposedly good friends with Chris Cornell, and died in the same way on Cornell's birthday. Weird.

“What rap did that was impressive was to show there are so many tone-deaf people out there,” he says. “All they need is a drum beat and somebody yelling over it and they’re happy. There’s an enormous market for people who can’t tell one note from another.” - Keef
