Goodbye To Romance

Just got to reading the link you sent me......very very interesting indeed....i wouldn't have put it past her one little bit......

Just saw the E True Hollywood Story on Elvis.....how very very sad he lived his life at the end....what would have been of music today had he still been alive.....how he's influenced so many, how many loved him.....so sad in the end the one he didn't love was himself...he deserved more than what he gave himself.

mama2tyler, we are more than cool my dear, please don't misunderstand what I said, like I stated I tend to judge people on a one 2 one basis, then I either decide if your my kind of people or not. As for my attitude on people as a whole, I am trying to be more like you are, but after being burned so many damn times, I have over the years built these walls up in order to protect myself, I use to believe like you do that at heart all people are basically kind, but unfortunately hon that is far, far from the actual truth on things. As for anyone here at the forum, I love you guys, even those of you who my opinion on things may differ, as far as I see it we are one big happy family here, & that we all have that one major thing in common, & that is we all have a love an admiration for the madman of rock & roll, an that’s are boy Ozzy f***ing Osbourne!

As for Kurt, yes it was a tragedy, one that did not really affect me all that much personally I must admit. I did however respect Kurt for his music, even though I was never huge on Nirvana, but I always thought Kurt's heart was in the right place when he stated he wasn't happy to see all the fanaticism over his music, as well as the radio, & MTV shoving it up your ass every hour on the hour. I always knew Kurt was struggling with his success, and then when you combine that fact with all his personal problems, especially his health, I personally wasn't all that shocked that he took himself out like he did. I think Nirvana is one of those bands that I always thought were just ok, I was more into the Melvin's, & Alice in Chains during that time frame, and with Kurt being associated with the Melvin's the sound Kurt was going for was a little to much of a rip off on the whole Melvin's vibe, so I passed on really being a huge fan of them. But as I already said I respected Kurt as a person, & I do believe his heart was in the right place, and there is no denying the fact he did strike a chord with a whole new generation of kids, that were just as sick & tired of the ignorant ass trends as my generation had been. Its a damn shame that he couldn't of held on just a little bit longer, who’s to say maybe ole Kurt would have better seen that what you deem to unbearable to live with today, may not be the case for the following.

As for him being murdered, well I wouldn’t put it past that sleazy ass ex b**** of his; nope it wouldn’t surprise me all that much at all. I have always thought that Courtney was a useless piece of dog s*** that needed to be flushed down the drain! Sorry that’s just how I have always felt about her, makes me question why John Lennon, why Dime, but yet this white trash whore still walks the earth, does the irony ever stop folks?

I don’t think so!

Peace all!

IMO Elvis is just a tad overrated. I like his music and all but hype around him seems like too much.

--
Tony Iommi = God, his arch angels are Ozzy Osbourne, Dave Walker, Ronnie James Dio, Ian Gillan, Dave Donato, Glenn Hughes, Ray Gillen, Tony Martin, and Bill Ward (bassically everyone who sang on a song labeled Black Sabbath)

For me to go the other way and to be suspicious of every person from the very get-go is SO unlike me.....and I just get burned nearly each and every time that I extend that 'ol olive branch of friendship.....you'd think I'd learn huh? Guess both sides of the equation carry their own risks....however, think i'll stick to the "usuals" here....stray from the "suspicious minds" that peer in every so often.....i should be fine. That we do love our Ozzy........I love me some Ozzy....disturbing in and of ittself, but I do anyway

mama2tyler Yeah your right. The speedball of drugs was the last breath. No matter how you look at it, drugs kill people. Yeah been there done all that stupid s*** as so many of us have. Some made it (like Ozzy) and some didn't.... The strange thing about the 70's is we lost the three J's.......
Jimmy Hendrix, Jannice Joplin, and Jim Morrison.... ALL of which were so damn legendary that it really really sucked........ If not for Elvis, the music wouldn't have gone the direction that it did. I don't know what would have happened but he sure was an inspiration to the world. Candle light vigils all over the world today and last night....... You can bet that Ozzy is thinking of him quite a bit right now......

Love you all...........................

I think quite often about those you just mentioned, Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin and Jim Morrison, as I am a fan of all three.....I wonder how different music would have sounded, and if we would have as many of the bands and solo artists that we have today (and the ones who CALL themselves bands and artists....I like all kinds of music, though I"m not a fan of EVERY artist that comes out of all genres.....I think I relate more to the Beatles than I do to most artists of today...kinda scary, considering that the Beatles were not of my generation AT ALL...I'm over 20 but not 40....you know? So, I"m still kinda young....sorta.)

OUTLAWTORN_13 When you figure it out, send me an email and let me know what is up... LOL........

Love you guys................

Goodbye To Romance

Why ah ding, dang, doooooooooo! Somebody mentioned the Elvis!

I have to say I was a bit surprised to see the King given props, and I have to say I am even more contented by the fact of being assured that there are still people that can appreciate the guys that came before metal, guys like Elvis, Buddy Holly, & Carl Perkins to name only a few.

I have to admit that when I was a kid, along with my parents not being so much an Elvis fan, as they were the Beatles, I never was all that overly exposed to Elvis Presley. Instead I heard bands like Frank Zappa & the Mothers, Uriah Heep, & some Iron Butterfly. However as I grew older, old enough to see the images of Elvis on TV, my first images of Elvis were during his Hollywood years as I tend to call them, then later Elvis doing his Vegas shows with all them middle aged women screaming & some I suspect even creaming their panties as he shook his hunk, ah hunk, ah love at them! Lol

I especially being just a kid was kind of disgusted by it all. Elvis looked God awful horrible, he was now fat & bloated, & sometimes forgetting his lyrics and just making up the s*** as he went along. So when I heard his obituary over the news, even still being a kid, I have to say I was anything but surprised by his death. Looking back I remember the commode thing kind of freaked me out, but his actual death did not. Of course the drugs being a decisive part of his demise soon leaked out, or flooded out may be the better word for it, & people were shocked. Now how it is that they could have been actually shocked by the drugs & booze being a fundamental part of his death, I will never know. All I do know is that all his fans flooded the TV with how they just couldn't believe it, & how disappointed they were of his drug addiction, blah, blah, blah! Just goes to show you how blind ones admiration for an artist, or celebrity can truly be.

The true fact of the matter is I spent most of my adolescent life having that fat & bloated Viva Las Vegas, karate chopping, sweat machine as my only real image of Elvis Presley, & it was harshly imprinted onto my brain. It wasn’t until I was a young man, I believe in my early 20’s that I caught some specials on the king, & then I was amazed at what he had done for rock and roll, & how the Beatles just adored him, even meeting him once at his home, jamming an such, very, very cool, or so I think.

Then I had to know more, so I went out on my own accord and rented some videotapes, “when VHS was still king” of some of his shows, & the one that changed my outlook on him completely was his 1968 come back show. I was like who is this dude? He came out in all black, and just jammed his ass off with his boys, it was really, really cool. So from that point forward I wasn’t as hard on the King, I went from thinking what an over rated a**hole, to instead wow he really was a true inventor of rock ah billy, rock & roll, whatever you may want to tag it. So even though Elvis is this huge icon, and has been marketed to death more than any past music artist, in the end I have to give the man props, he was, & is still the King of rock & roll. And just like Ozzy, there have been countless others who were inspired by his music, thus causing what I call the domino effect, one that is still going on today. It is clearly seen by what has transpired over the many years since his death, all one needs to do is look at the history of rock & roll to see that his influence is still being felt today, and I suspect well into the future, so this old metal head simply says thank God for Elvis Presley, & his cohorts in crime, Jerry Lee Lewis, Buddy Holly, & Richie Valens.

May Rock N Roll never die!

Goodbye To Romance

Yeah when I watched the hour special on Larry King the other night, there were 50 thousand + fans with candles at Grace Land...... There was a shot of John Lennon talking about Elvis as well and that clinched it for me....... If you want my honest honest honest opinion on my favorite favortie favortie mucision, it is JOHN LENNON....................... I nearly died on December 8th, 1980 at 8:00ishPM PST by drinking myself to death... I couldn't believe it.... I didn't believe it for months...........NOT John Lennon..... MY GOD!!!!!!!! And Chapmin is still walking and breathing???????? Un-f****** REAL!!!!!!!

Love you all..............

Goodbye To Romance

Ya I hear ya, John is my Elvis, I respect the King an all, but John was the guy who made it all so real for me! I will always be a Lennon fan, as well as Ozzy, that I can say will never change! Not ever!

Peace

Aww.. I love Elvis..
He is f***ing awesome..
His songs make me cry!!
hehe.. Only Fools Rush In!!! xo

I WANT OZZY, ZAKKY AND MIKEY... hehe.. xo

Yeah John Lennon my God....... Now it doesn't get any better than that.... He was Ozzy's idol as well as you probably know...... His voice, music, everything about him was just so way good......... I have a mirror that I got in Japan in the 80's that has a picture of Lennon with a halo over his head that says;
John Lennon on the top of the mirror
then the picture of him in purple
then at th bottom it says, My last words were "yes I am John Lennon"...... I managed to get that thing all over the world and here and there and it has NEVER broke.... Actually I have three Beatles mirrors..... One is Abby Road and the other is Let it Be......... They are so special that they are packed LOL.... I am scared to death to put them on a wall......

Love you guys....................

Goodbye To Romance

Ya my mother woke me up for school that morning and told me John had been shot & murdered, it wounded me psychologically for years, & now with Dime being murdered, no less on stage, well it makes me lose a lot of hope for humanity, via why I don't have this huge love thing going on for humanity at large. I judge people on a one to one basis these days, I figure if you go in thinking most people are turds, then your more likely to be surprised that their not, something I am working on is my attitude about people as a whole, at least give me props for trying damn it lmfao!

<cite>"Being sober on a bus is, like, totally different than being drunk on a bus."</cite> - <strong>Ozzy Osbourne</strong>

Goat and Rose, I hope you guys dont mind my jumping in the convo.....Goat as far as accepting that people are generally a-holes and then finding out the pleasant surprise that they aren't, for me is so completely the other way around, and that's maybe why people ACCUSE me of being so overly trusting and almost even naive...for me it's so inconceivable to think first that a person can be all evil and then find out they aren't....i'd rather assume that they're actually good....only to later take the fall and find out that they were actually scum.....

Anyways, that was a little aside....the one death that really stands out in my lifetime of a musician was Kurt Cobain.....I was a senior in high school and was so terribly sad that his life ended that way, that he CHOSE to end it that way, it didn't have to BE that way...I remember feelign sorrow for a while, then I just became incredibly ANGRY that he would do that, first to himself and his family, his sweet little girl that will never know her father, that was just selfish to me....then the fans, how we were cheated....

Geez I feel like I"m hearing it all over again and reliving the whole damn thing......ugh.....well, now you know a little about me and how young I am...somehow on these sites, I hate exposing that.

Ozzysrose, if you can, check out if a message I sent you via this site, if you are able to access it, thanks!!!!

Goat, though we just relatively just met, hope we can be cool with one another. You seem like a very knowledgable person that would be awesome to talk to. See you guys.

IMO kurt was murdered by courtney, but if he took his own life than why feel sorry for someone. he had a lil baby girl to think of. and to see how that b****S life has totally f***ed up makes me thank see had alot to do with his "suicide". suicide is a cop out. everybody has hard times, some worse than others and they dont go killing theirselfs.

Goodbye To Romance

Outlaw......yea i've thought that too..she certainly was not too much of a good influence on him and probably made his decision that much easier, and i totally agree that people CHOOSE to commit suicide, there ARE people with a zillion bigger problems than he ever had and they go on.....in the end, all I am now over him is angry that he cheated everyone out of what might have been.

the whole suicide note, her adding stuff to it, the pi report saying to kill his self with the shotgun he would have had to pulled the trigger with his toe, yet his shoes were still on, s*** like that doesnt make sense. www.en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kurt_cobain and scroll down to the "Suicide dispute".
