Actually I'm sorry to hear of his death, but glad to see he found Jesus.

Round and Round and Dance, Dance, Dance bring back lots of high school memories.

RATT was some of the worst bullshit noise ever imposed on an unwitting public.

I saw the Ramones in 1980 at the Palladium in NYC. What a show. Non-stop, no breaks, hard core energy. Just 1-2-3-4 from one song to the next.

If I didn't have a huge headache from taking a punch in the side of the head (that's another story) I probably would have had more fun, but it was still great.

Sorry to see Dee Dee and Joey go. The Ramones are gone forever I guess.

Kurt Cobain and several other rock stars died from gun wounds. Imagine that. Patsy Cline was killed in a plane crash. Life goes on...

From your profile page............

My hobbies:

Music. I play bluegrass guitar and I also play in a Lynyrd Skynyrd tribute band.

A "hobby"?.......are you sure you're aren't the end all authority on the subject?

I know The Ramones avoided politics mostly in the early years - their urpose was to have fun. The first time they did something blatently political was when Reagan went to Bitzberg - it ticked them off - apparently most of the Ramones were Reaganites (suprising, somewhat)- and they wrote a song about it...

I always enjoyed Ramones shows - high energy fun is right :0)

I remember when Hendrix died and it affected me more than any of the others at that time:

Pig Pen
Janis
Jim Morrison
Otis Redding
Mama Cass

But with all the warnings out there, they still geez it up don't they?

Geez this is a horrible time losing some good musitiams.
My niece has been studying sound engineering in a college in north Texas for 2 years now and asked for my opinion of the best music I've ever heard. Well for last Christmas I put togeather a 12 CD set for her (SORRY, No royalties paid. I already paid for the music and I'm using it for her education. We're both really into music) I had everything from Bethtoven to White Zombie. Ratt made two tracks. Way Cool, Jr. (The opening solo did such a great job of setting a really gritty tone to the whole song) and "Lack of Communication" because of great insight into the human experiance. Did he do Lack? Very powerful, in-your-face strings to carry out the entire feeling of the song.

RATT was a staple of MTV in the 80's. Remember the midnight Heavy Metal Show on Saturday night?

Gosh Huck, what brillant insight and commentary.

Just one thing, how was the public unwitting? Did they pay for their records before hearing them and then were denied a refund? Did they buy their concert tickets before knowing it was a hard rock band? Were they tricked into a room and then kept there by force to listen to the music?

Ratt had some good songs, but I bought none of the albums nor went to a concert. I just thought in our society if you are doing something legal and someone else will pay you for it that is called capitalism. Isn't that good? I mean, isn't making money the legal way, even if you in particular don't like it, good?

Since the public laid out the cash they were hardly unwitting and it is sad that someone else died because of drug use.

In the 80s, RATT, Quiet Riot, Def Leppard, and Motley Crue were some of the "bands" one could not avoid even with great effort.

English. At least when they played the German version, I had no idea what she was saying (besides Capt. Kirk). hehe

The death's of Layne Staley from Alice In Chains was a waste. A total waste of incredible talent, gone forever due to an addiction to heroin. Dee Dee Ramone from the famous punk band The Ramones died of the very same thing a little more than a day ago. Robbin Crosby one of 2 guitarists in the 80s hard rock act RATT died from a long battle with AIDS, attributed from use of a dirty heroin needle.

A waste? Hardly. They lived freeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee! Libertarians everywhere are rejoicing on behalf of these heroic corpses--these men who were brave enough to face death nose-to-nose and spit it in the eye.

Yeah, "boy" bands suck. But it's just as gay to listen to this puffed up fairies, let alone to post pictures of them. I'll bet the RATT fans on this thread were surprised when Rob Halford admitted he was a peter puffer. This stuff is so lame. I try not to be glad when people like this die, because I know it's wrong and I shouldn't feel that way. I would have settled for having their fingers lopped off. But this will have to do.

I heard that being a regular heroin user makes you immune from the common cold.

Well, if one don't get you the other one will.

Well, when Stevie Ray Vaughn bit the big one I was bummed out plus a little astonished that he died due to helicopter failure, and not due to some evil combination of drugs and alcohol. Either way, he went out in a blaze of glory. Long live Stevie Ray Vaughn.... hey, it's floodin' down in Texas!

Staley was left undiscovered in his apartment for two weeks before anyone bothered to check on him. I feel sorry that he passed, but I despised his music no matter how harminic. The song "Man in a box" is reprehensible trash.

"Man In The Box"

I'm the man in the box
Buried in my sh!$
Won't you come and save me, save me

[CHORUS]

Feed my eyes, can you sew them shut?
Jesus Christ, deny your maker
He who tries, will be wasted
Feed my eyes now you've sewn them shut

I'm the dog who gets beat
Shove my nose in sh!$ Won't you come and save me, save me

Not to be mean, but you call that "incredible talent???" Pfffiff...What a bunch of losers.

Yep! SRV will always be my "favorite" (?) tragic untimely rock-artist death. The rest of them I couldn't really give a rip about. And that's a cold shot, baby!
