      Echoes of Michael Hutchence possibly?

      Because that is what I want to believe. Maybe a note will come to light soon? It just doesn't add up. Doesn't mean it's impossible though.

      While it's entirely hard for me to fathom suicide, it's even harder to imagine the whole "hanging" yourself thing. After watching that Sopranos episode, no thanks.

      Try watching A Man Called Ove. The poor man couldn't catch a break.

      Was just going to mention that. Feels like that all over again. Oddly I was watching old concerts from '97 of INXS last night.

      Actually found my show on Youtube. No one standing around with their smart phones in those days!



      Guy has the date wrong though, second and final Randalls Island show that year was 7/11, not 7/12. Good times.

      Tortured genius? Might explain the former drug and alcohol abuse. Perhaps he wasn't just a hard partying rockstar, but used it to self medicate.

      ****!

      Whoever said he lacked range is crazy. Cornell had a four octave range and did a lot more than grunge.

      I'm still in disbelief. There was no indication leading up to this that he was heading down that path. Family man, on tour, never doing anything outrageous or outlandish for attention. Why couldn't he have talked to anyone? Maybe there comes a point where you don't see any other option. Very, very sad.



      I just played the few songs I know how to play by SG, and it's weird feeling. Last week it was normal, today I'm playing a dead man's song.

      I'm a big fan of Vs and Yield, the rest are meh to me. I was listening to all kinds of stuff back then, grunge rock was a very small portion of my attention.

      No worries.

      As for Eddie he damn well better not be going anywhere. I pretty much listen to only one channel on XM and that's PJ Radio.

      What was the deal with the burning crosses rant? Yeah, he looked messed up or something. Didn't sound too great either.

      Nicky Hayden 1981-2017



      http://www.independent.co.uk/sport/m...-a7749876.html

      World Superbike Championship rider and 2006 MotoGP champion Nicky Hayden has died from injuries sustained in a road accident last week.

      The 35-year-old American was cycling on a road along the Rimini coastline in Italy last Wednesday when a road car collided with his bicycle.

      Hayden, from Owensboro, Kentucky, suffered head and chest injuries in the collision and was transferred to the Bufalini Hospital in Cesena, where he was treated in the intensive care unit.
