Guitar Virtuoso Eddie Van Halen Dies At 65

Song – “Running With The Devil” – Van Halen

I’m a Rocker too and I actually did a rendition of ‘Running With The Devil’ and although I’ve enjoyed listening to a few of their songs, Van Halen was not one of my favorite hard rock bands. And there were other guitarists I was paying more attention to in The Heavy Metal World at the time, however I didn’t mind seeing them though because I actually liked David Lee Roth’s antics on stage performing. I also loved him as the band’s Front Man at the time before he was replaced by Sammy Hagar, who I liked as well as a Vocalist. But, I have to mention Eddie Van Halen because he does deserve recognition for also making VAN HALEN what it was with that electrifying guitar playing that made him one of the greatest guitarists of all time. It was HIS guitar playing on Michael Jackson’s rock track, “Beat It”. Eddie had a lot to offer. He had a nice look to him and seemed like a cool guy. He had a long battle with cancer and he’ll be very missed by the Rock World.

Co-Founder Of Iconic Funk Band Dies At 68

Song – “Cherish” – By Kool & The Gang

Ferrelux Latin Phrase: Requiesce In Pace Ut Vos 🎷May You Rest In Peace

Saxophonist Ronald “Khalis” Bell, one of the Founders of Kool & The Gang died September 9th 2020 at age 68. His band Co-Founder brother is Robert “Kool” Bell. From what has not been made known to the public. Well what can I say about this band? They had a lot of popular party jams I liked listening to. I played their music regularly back in the day. It’s nostalgic when I listen to them now. They were one of my favorite bands. They had nine members who played together through the many years as it dwindled down to about 7 or 6 remaining guys on the cover of their albums. Their music endured from them forming and playing in clubs in the mid 1960s, to the 1970s, throughout the 1980s, the 1990s and into the Millennia. They played Funk, Jazz, R&B Soul, Pop, and yes there even some Rock in there. Very talented group! Aside from the dance music, their ballads were exceptional as well. Timeless love songs still being played on the radio. Though we still have the surviving members, Kool has moved on into Heaven to play in the band of Angels.

Bohemian Rhapsody (2018) Queen Movie Review

Ne Cede Malis, Sed Contra Audientior
Do Not Yield To Misfortunes, But Go Forth More Boldly To Meet Them (Virgil)
PLAYLIST ~ Music By Queen

Ofcourse somebody would want to make a film about the late great Freddie Mercury. I had mixed feelings over it. ALOT of the info in the movie and timeline is false. It’s a piece of fictional work designed to convey what they wanted you to know about him and the band and there experiences. Well, for something more factual, go look at the many documentaries and interviews online. For the film, they tried very hard to make the Egyptian actor Rami Malek, look, sound and act like him. The real Freddie was a physically bigger man and his striking actions and majestic persona are hard capture. I wasn’t entirely convinced of the performance and I don’t know why Rami Malek was chosen, I was more impressed at the actor’s work at the end of the film when he really came alive on stage as Freddie Mercury at the Live Aid concert. Yes, I expected it to win ALOT of awards, because of some elements in the film, even though critics like myself didn’t fancy it much. At the time when I saw the movie, I wasn’t really happy with it to go write a rave review, but as I continue to think about this man and his work, I have to say something. Prior to the film, the music of Queen for years were in movies, TV shows & commercials, and now AFTER the film, it’s still everywhere arguably as the band with the most hits heard in ads. Now this is a testament to their greatness, the mass commercial appeal as of late. There was a time in my development where Queen was one of the rock bands, I designated a moment of my life consistently listening to. The man was a musical genius. I felt the film focused too much on the gay shit. Some of the dialogue consisted of cheesy faggot comments that made Freddie looked like he was some Rupaul Drag person, when in reality, he carried himself more like a man. He was never out there in the public eye talking like that, seeming like that, or carrying himself like that. In reality, he was masculine, that was why when he died at age 45 in the early 1990s, it shocked people when we heard he lost his life due to complications with AIDs. I remember, it saddened me as a teenager back then the way the news of it was suddenly delivered over the airwaves. I missed him. He died too early. And now, so many years later in the current heyday of the flamboyant gay rights movement, they go and make a movie using HIM & his life to be a part of the gay agenda. If you study Queen, you’d know that Freddie himself when he lived, had no interest in being a point person for the gay movement or a Spokesperson on AIDs. He was a private man who was more mindful about HIS MUSIC. I’d think if you were going to do a movie about him, you’d more concentrate on his musical genius and things that really mattered to him. His lyrics hold philosophical content. He’s a Composer, right up there with Mozart, Bach, etc. Looking at the first half of the film was making me visibly upset with them focusing on homosexuality as if that was the main thing about his life, when other people around him at the time, can account for aspects of his personality being non-gay. In reality, heterosexuality was something he valued that the movie could not deny and had to show in some way since there was a woman he was romantically involved with, that he still loved till the end of his life and he left a great deal of his fortune to her even though she married and moved on. Something happened to Freddie as a young Indian boy born in Zanzibar/Tanzania when his family moved there to flee the Uprising in India. Then he developed as a person in England. We may never know the missing info, but there might be clues out there in cyberspace and alternative media. The movie could have been done better without the gay politics. Now we have content Millennials misunderstanding some things about his life and art as we go on as a society. He’s now a Gay Icon. Oh God! He was never seen as that before though. Nor decades before now, was he dug up and embraced as one of them, even at the time he lived. Some people say he was openly gay at the time, but there is evidence suggesting otherwise. Also, homosexuality (Buggery) was still seen as a crime in Britain in the 1960s. To many Americans & others around the globe, it was either a mental problem, or a vice you engaged in and some of us still think so. And for some, cross-dressing was a look you adopted or played around with, but it didn’t mean you were actually gay or lesbian, or something. And people eventually realized if you were or not. If he was privately exploring or finding himself because of some personal issue and I saw that, I wouldn’t make a film depicting that as the central theme of his life. It was more a gay movie, than an real biopic. There was so much more beyond that and what he never got to do in life. I don’t know how he himself would feel about this film they made about his life. I know though, he would have composed a better film about his story.
