23 Jul 2011, 23:56 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 older than 36 I'll recommend you Pt 2;
Ritchie Valens (1941-1959)
Plane crash. After a winning cointoss and despite of his fear to fly, together with Buddy Holly and The Big Bopper, he flew out of the Mason City airport in a small plane that Holly had chartered. The plane flew into a blinding snowstorm and crashed shortly after takeoff. This is known as "The Day The Music Died".

6 Jan 2010, 13:29 by Mark_HWhen rating prog albums I try to do so in a historical context, that is how an album compares against the entire body of Prog. This means that the best album for any given year, which most people would rate with top marks may not receive the same rating in my charts as only the best albums of all time should get the highest ratings... This chart does not include compilations or live albums.
Note: I vote on a bell curve, anything above 6 is really good, anything much below 4 really isn't :D
1. (=) Simon Says - Tardigrade (2008) - 7.35
2. (=) Areknamés - Love Hate Round Trip (2006) - 7.30
3. (=) Wobbler - Hinterland (2005) - 7.18
4. (=) IQ - Dark Matter (2004) - 7.13
5. (=) Frost* - Milliontown (2006) - 7.13
6. (=) Various - The Spaghetti Epic 3: The Great Silence (2008) - 6.99
7. (=) Magenta - Metamorphosis (2008) - 6.93
8. (=) Syrinx - Qualia (2008) - 6.83
9. (=) Peter Pan - Days (2007) - 6.82
10. (=) Naikaku - Shell (2006) - 6.78

7 Jul 2009, 18:27 by voidbergO murit Michael Jackson după cum bine ştiţi şi un bilanţ provizoriu ne arată că vreo 12 fani au plecat să facă moonwalking cu Maicăl. Ceea ce mie mi se pare foarte foarte slăbuţ.
Kino e o formaţie rusească apărută pe la începutul anilor 80 şi care s-a bucurat (şi încă se mai bucură) de o mare faimă în maica rusie, solistul Виктор Цой (Viktor Tsoi) fiind idolul multora dintre cei care au trăit sub comunism. Povestea lor e destul de interesantă şi dacă sunteţi curioşi puteţi citi câte ceva aici şi aici.
Chit că nu vă interesează, preferata mea este Peremen, care înseamnă Schimbari.
S-ar putea să vă mai fie cunoscută Videli Noci sau Grupa Krovi (pentru jucătorii de GTA).
Tsoi a murit în 1990 într-un accident de maşină. Ce legătură este între asta şi Maicăl? Păi, după Tsoi au plecat vreo 50 de oameni pe când după Maicăl doar vreo 12.
13 Jun 2009, 11:17 by spkr4thddFri 12 Jun – Dream Theater, Frost*
I came to this show not sure what to expect... I'd never heard of Frost* (Shame on me!) even though I love Kino, It Bites, Arena etc who John Mitchell has been involved with... also, although I've been a Dream Theater fan since the first time Pull Me Under appeared on MTV I've never seen them live!! Needless to say, I was really looking forward to this....
First up were the support band Frost*. After a nice little instrumental intro they opened with Welcome To Nowhere, that was it, I was hooked! Not knowing their material I can't name the rest of the set, however to say I was impressed is an understatement... neo prog at its most sublime! They certainly played a couple of tracks from Experiments in Mass Appeal which I duly purchased at the merch stall... it's playing now, and it's great! (Having listened to the CD, I know they also played at least Pocket Sun and Dear Dead Days... not sure of the others!)
