R.I.P. Charley Pride

Covid once again

I'm not big into country, but Charles Pride was always cool. I feel sorry they stole his name without his permission for all those hedonistic homosexual parades. And that they stole God's rainbow for the same.

Pride & Prine in the same year... Prince, Prine and Pride, the 3 men I admired most, the father, son and holy ghost, were on the last train to the coast the day the music died. :-?

Not a music guy but I think he deserves to be mentioned.

My baby sister had Down’s syndrome and let me tell you that in my experience they are very special people.

R.I.P. Leslie West

Leslie West, co-founder and co-vocalist/guitarist of Mountain — the “Mississippi Queen” hard rock band credited as one of the godfathers of ‘70s heavy metal — has died at age 75. The sad news was first shared by Dean Guitars, with whom West had an endorsement deal, on Wednesday afternoon. West’s health was known to be in decline for some time (in 2011, his lower right leg was amputated as a result of diabetes complications), but his official cause of death was heart failure, according to a statement later made by his brother, Larry West Weinstein, to Rolling Stone.

=======================

I saw Mountain, opening for Triumph, at the Brown Co. Arena (Green Bay) in '84 or '85. Leslie was truly the size of a Mountain. I don't know if it was a gimmick that they did every night or if it was spontaneous. The drummer kept bouncing his sticks off his cymbals and if they weren't hitting Leslie, they were landing all around him. Leslie got pissed and picked up a cymbal stand and threw it at the drums knocking half the drum kit over like the drums were bowling pins. :shock:

Today is the 1-year anniversary of the sad passing of Neil Peart, the amazing drummer for Rush. His passing is mentioned somewhere in a previous post from Ron in this thread.

If you're a fan, and you're interested, here's a great article with new details about Neil's life and death from a brain tumor:

RIP Phil Spector. Yes, he was nuts but he revolutionized rock.
