13 Feb 2012, 12:18 by thomas10This is an article in which I tried to bundle all the great losses of rock'n roll and modern music. That means all the musicians which are worldwide known and died at young age (before 51 years old). I tried to give a little information about the way they died. Most of the information I got from Wikipedia. When someone thinks I forgot an artist or that the information is incorrect... I'm open for new information.
The list is in order of age of dying
For the artists younger than 37 I'll recommend you Pt 1;
Lhasa de Sela (Lhasa) (1972-2010)
Following a 21-month-long battle with breast cancer, Lhasa died, age 37, on the evening of January 1, 2010, at her home in Montreal.
Rhett Forrester (RIOT) (1956-1994)
Murdered. He was shot and killed in Atlanta, Georgia, after he refused to give up his vehicle in an attempted carjacking. The crime has not to date, been solved.

14 Feb 2008, 06:45 by gambrellurbI was young and I remember feeling not quite hip enough because I liked the Four Tops more than The Temptations. Both were part of the early Motown Records vanguard out of Detroit. Most of the black kids preferred the Temps. That said, I did think My Girl was perhaps the best song ever made, but overall, I was in the Top's camp.
It was 1965 and I was thirteen. It was a hell of a year. The Beatles (and British) invasion was in full force but there were still plenty of red blooded Americans who'd tell you the Beach Boys were better. I can remember radio call ins where you'd vote for one or the other. The Beatles always won but I did felt a twinge of sympathy for the Beach Boys. It was an American thing.
I already said it was a hell of a year. 1965 was the year that I first became fully engaged in listening, discussing, living and breathing popular music. I finally got a transistor radio that worked reliably and I could afford to buy batteries (I think my allowance was $2/week). …
27 Dec 2007, 03:05 by LcdCynAs we end another year, once again my mainstream oldies' taste took a few detours and traveled some main thoroughfares.
I have purchased songs over the year by the following artists to name a few:
- Peter Tosh
(this happened by listening to Bob Marley,
then Wailers first)
- Hank Williams
(something about "Your Cheatin'
Heart" gets me every time)
- Eddie Rabbit
- Glenn Medeiros
- Death Cab for Cutie
- Four Seasons
(the Jersey Boys nostaglia)
- Alannah Myles
- Dan Hartman
("Free Ride" by Edgar Winter group started this
descent in Hartman's Disco/pop songs)
- Donny Hathaway
(the more music I find from this man,
the more I want to hear)
- Al Jarreau
(I had a lot of Al's music on... I cannot
say it - vinyl - thanks ITUNES)
- The Clark Sisters
- 4 Non Blondes
- David Ruffin
(after all, he sang the lead on "My
Girl" by the Temptations)
- John Coltrane
- John Barry
- Linda Clifford
22 Aug 2007, 12:03 by Nectar_CardFor a streamable tag radio of all the artists listed here, click here for Motown records radio
Motown Records, also known as Tamla-Motown outside of the United States, is a record label originally based out of Detroit, Michigan ("Motor City"), where it achieved widespread international success. Motown played an important role in the racial integration of popular music as the first record label owned by an African American and primarily featuring African American artists to regularly achieve crossover success and have a widespread, lasting effect on the music industry.
Incorporated on 12 January 1959 by Berry Gordy, Jr. as Tamla Records, Motown has, over the course of its history, owned or distributed releases from more than 45 subsidiaries in varying genres, although it is most famous for its releases in the musical genres of R&B, hip hop, pop, and soul. Motown left Detroit for Los Angeles in 1972, and remained an independent company until 1988, when Gordy sold the company to MCA. …
10 Nov 2006, 14:29 by moogmonkey...well it's not strictly speaking Jazz but more Dancefloor Jazz. It's been a while since I last listened to Mojo Club Dancefloor Jazz Vol 3 but I've been bopping my head to it all day at work!
Personally these are my favorite tracks, and would recommend anyone with any form of "Dance Jazz/Acid Jazz" leanings to give them a listen:
Dave Pike - Mathar
David Ruffin - Blood Donors Needed (Give All You Can)
Don Covay - Overtime Man
The Isleys - Work to Do

30 Apr 2006, 02:42 by jcshepardNo Depression magazine surveys roots music every other month (http://www.nodepression.net) and used to bill itself as the home of alt-country "whatever that is". The name, as you know, originates with No Depression. 'Tis my Bible of Americana Music such as it is.
OK, you also know I've done this before. If I'm not careful I'll turn it into my personal meme. Will try to restrain myself in the future, but it's raining out. so her she goes.
ND#63 has Jon Dee Graham and Alejandro Escovedo on the cover, with top plugs for Buck Owens, Dr. John, Josh Ritter, and Cassandra Wilson. Of these, I'm familiar with all but the last. I will read to become informed.
Live Show writeups: Van Morrison, Jeff Tweedy, Wilco (are they not one in the same? I know, read to become informed...); Jesse Dayton, Mavis Staples, Ray Davies, Silver Jews. Of these, 1 strike-out with Mr. Davies, tho I don't know that any of the rest show up in my charts.
