Title: Elvis and Kurt Cobain have been dead for as long as they were alive
Post by: willbo on July 15, 2021, 05:46:08 PM
2019 was 42 years after Elvis died at 42, and this year is 27 years since Cobain died at 27. There's something so depressing that has struck me about that somehow.

Pffft, they were both dead for longer than that before they were born.

As of this year, Springsteen is now older than Cash was when JC died. That took me aback today. I could've swore Cash was older.

Springsteen is a different case, though.

Incredible stuff re Cobain. Think I will play some Future Sounds Of London to commemorate this fact.

is there a depressing industrial rock song Springsteen can cover to re-vitalise his twilight career?

edit - Cash did a song from 8 years previously (NIN's Hurt). The most important song of 2013 was Get Lucky, so Springsteen should do an acoustic cover of it to cap his career. The bouncy riff will sum up his love of rock n' roll, while the lyrics will fit perfectly with how a kid from New Jersey "got lucky" to become one of the world's biggest stars.

Same goes for Lennon, if that's not too obvious.

In all seriousness, that does sound like the sort of thing Springsteen would perform as a FUN encore. He hasn't, but you know what I mean.

A few months ago I turned older than Elvis managed to. Every day since is a blessing, given all the peanut butter and heroin sandwiches I eat.

There's also no record of Bob Dylan going to see the divisive Episode 8 - The Last Jedi, or giving his thoughts on it. Of course, he's alive and well - but it's a shame he hasn't jumped into the Star Wars debate, either through interview or song.

Elvis isn't the King of Rock 'n' Roll now, is he?  The singer from Climie Fisher took that honour.

No sympathy over this from me. He had numerous opportunities to shoot John Lennon himself.

If Buddy Holly was alive today, he'd be proper sick of people asking him about the plane crash.

And instead of American Pie, Don Maclean would have written Iron Man.

Buddy Holly was 22 when he died. It was 23 years from his plane crash to his appearance alongside Christopher Ryan. 24 years ago this month, Microsoft stopped including the Weezer song "Buddy Holly" on some versions of the Windows 95 CD-ROM. Christ

If Per Yngve "Dead" Ohlin of Mayhem were alive today, he’d be well and truly pissed off and disappointed, I’d say, failing to live up to his nom de plume in such an egregious way.
