27... the scariest number in rock

So as you may of heard, Amy Winehouse died this past weekend.  While I can't say that I was ever really a fan of her music, my condolences do go out to those that were and her family.

What truly caught my attention was the fact that she died at 27.

I remember when I was first getting into rock music and at around 12 or 13, 27 seems kind of old... not so much anymore.

What I soon found out, from watching different documentaries and stuff, was that alot of rock stars (especially from the 60's) died at 27.

This includes:

- Jimi Hendrix
- Janis Joplin
- Kurt Cobain
- Jim Morrison
- Brian Jones

Am I missing anyone?

It is unfortunate when anyone leaves this world at such a young age, especially those with talents that bring joy to so many others.

For any parents that read this, please educate your children about drugs, their addictive nature, and the short and longterm side effects...

RIP Ms Winehouse!

Summer so far

Hello all,

How has your summer been?

I haven't blogged in awhile so I thought I'd just pop in and let you know what's going on.  I've been reading 'Does the noise in my head bother you' - the Steven Tyler Memoir.

About 2 years ago I read Slash's autobiography and so far my thoughts are the same - how are these people alive?

That being said, reading the book reminds me of all the interviews I've seen with Steven - he sort of jumps from one topic to the next, breaks into lyrics, and makes some pretty cool references when he is passionate about something... Gotta love the guy!

I know in my last post I talked about 2 of the CD's I've been wanting to get... I ordered the Head Cat CD from Amazon about 3 weeks ago now and haven't got it... I went to Sunrise to see if they had it... apparently the distributor is 'unreliable'... it kills me to be waiting this long to hear the album.

Anyone out there got there hands on it yet? Is this just a shipping to Canada issue?

I will try and be more regular with future blogs, but in the meantime I'm enjoying summer, can ya blame me?
