Mar 23 2010, 18h48 por amodelofcontrolI've been thinking a lot about death of late. A friend sadly passed away on Sunday night after a long battle with illness, while in the musical world the death of Alex Chilton, frontman of Big Star, last week cast something of a shadow over SXSW - not least because he was due to play with his reformed band on Saturday night at the festival. The remainder of the band decided to go-ahead with the show, with a number of big alt-rock names assisting on vocals as something of a sweet tribute. And these events, not to mention the recent suicide of Mark Linkous of Sparklehorse, resulted in this week's Tuesday Ten being about how the death of a member affects bands. It doesn't always result in the end of a band, instead sometimes spurring bands onto even greater heights, and some might cynically say that in some cases death results in being the best advertising they could ever have. So, this week, I'm looking at bands that have lost one or more members to death, and what happened after the event. …

What was the first song you ever heard by 6?
Man in the Box
What is your favorite album by 2?
Vitalogy and Yield. It's kind of hard to choose between those two.
What is your favorite lyric that 5 has sung?
That's a tough one. How about we go with my favorite at the moment? That would be from these two songs The Wretched and Something I Can Never Have:
"The clouds will part and the sky cracks open
And god himself will reach his fucking arm through
Just to push you down
Just to hold you down"
"In this place it seems like such a shame
Though it all looks different now, I know it's still the same
Everywhere I look you're all I see
Just a fading fucking reminder of who I used to be"
Jan 28 2007, 1h12 por G0ggeRight, 3 legendary bands, Mother Love Bone, Green River, and Malfunkshun. Credited for creating the Seattle sound known as Grunge. And me being a huge fan of Grunge, I expected a lot. Unfortunately I was served a huge bowl of crap!... YEAH RIGHT! Listening to these former Grunge pioneers, I could totally feel the roots of what would later become one of the defining genres in rock music.
To start of let's just cast out a name. Let's say... Oh I don't know, Andrew Wood. Hearing his whimsical, almost psychedelic and soothing vocals, felt like I was really back in the 80's, standing right there on the front line of creation. His singing style unique even by today's standards. His vocals, I strongly believe is the building block that laid the foreground to the greatness that would be Malfunkshun, and Mother Love Bone. The other blocks that made those bands great were Stone Gossard's guitar playing, Jeff Ament's bass, and KEVIN WOOD's sizzling guitar.
Jan 22 2007, 15h42 por DJBakuThis week I am writing about an extremely influential band, that only ever released one album: Temple of the Dog.
TOTD were a tribute band formed after the death of Mother Love Bone's singer Andy Wood's death.
Temple of the Dog comprised of Wood's former roommate and close friend Chris Cornell, with Mother Love Bone bassist Jeff Ament, guitarist Stone Gossard, future Pearl Jam lead guitarist Mike McCready Soundgarden drummer Matt Cameron.
The band released their only album, the self titled Temple of the Dog on April 16, 1991, simultaneously releasing Hunger Strike.
For your viewing pleasure, here's the video to Hunger Strike:

Along with Cornell, Eddie Vedder provides guest vocals for Hunger Strike. Vedder had flown to Seattle to audition for the role of Pearl Jam's singer. Cornell was apparently having difficulty with the vocals for the track, and Vedder stepped up to fill in.

So, here's how it works:
-Open your music player (iTunes, Winamp, Media Player, etc).

-For every question type the song that's playing.
