Everyone dies, it happens, and musicians are no exception. 

Old age, years of drug/alcohol abuse, suicide...  death is inevitable. 

You, me, everyone on this forum, everyone that you’ve ever met...  within 100 years, will be dead and forgotten.

No, you are drunk!

Keep going and if you won't feel-stomach-well in am, just swallow raw egg ... you'll be able to continue drinking shortly after ...

You should be happy ( like me ) that you can still enjoy their music ...

 

'The Stars (Are Out Tonight)' ...

yep 77, lets just thank God that they left us their music.  If I only had that talent!  man,,, what I would do,,,   still ,, who's best?  Sometimes I'm saying Mercury,,, sometimes I'm saying Bowie,, sometimes I'm saying Haggard,,,  haha,,, but let's be honest only one King.

haha,,, I luvd both your responses ,, Bowie was da' man!  I just erased all the words in my question cuz I was embarrassed by the PWI* charge.  I swear I only do it maybe twice a month,, and yeah, I'm up real late listening to Good music,, so it's usually a maudlin post and has a music component in it,,  haha,,, but I was talkin' Big Picture,, just seems weird to me that the Best in society usually check-out early,,,,  oh well,, like spider says,,, oh well.

Embarrassed? By what?

 

This ain't the same as real life when you feel ashamed about what you did in pub or in lock-down last night ... 

 

I dislike editing after the comment-s/reply-es were posted. It looks corny ...

 

You could submit (  polite!) request for deletion of the whole thread

yeah,, funny thing is I agree with u there,, it does look corny and weak to take back what one said,,,  oh well,,,  I did take it back,,,  so, that's that.

 

no one embarrassed me,,  excepy myself.  u know,, I come from old Christian Conservative background where u ain't supposed to get drunk,, so I was embarrassed saying those silly things in the middle of the nite.   ah well,,, u can't 'unbreak' an egg.

you mean "For here am I sitting in a tin can"  or the chorus " Here I am floating 'round my tin can"?

 

You got to quote Bowie right lol jk

diverdude1:

haha,, right u are.  He deserves accuracy.  sounds silly I guess but being an amateur astronomer and an avid NASA groupie that song really got to me.  I think people just really underappreciated what our astronauts did (do).  Let's Thank God the Moon Missions went so smoothly, even 13 made it back, but 13 sure gave us a look into what those guys were doing.  Talk about some nerve.  Everyone should read Armstrong and Aldrin, man they were (are) cool cats!

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
