As I Want You To Be"

Nirvana introduce a new thread. Artists long gone.
I was thinking about this one, for example

Hm. This may be a controversial choice, because the artist in question, Peter green, is still alive (he'll be 60 this year) and has produced bits and pieces of work within the last 5 years. BUT in many ways he has been "gone" for over 30 years...  :|

To paraphrase his wikipedia entry:

"...Green struggled spiritually with the band's success and being in the spotlight. While touring Europe, after a gig in Munich, Germany, Green went on a three day LSD fuelled binge. In his own words, he "went on a trip, and never came back". His use of LSD may have been a contributing factor to his mental illness, schizophrenia. He quit Fleetwood Mac in 1970, declaring money to be evil and giving it away to charity. He recorded an experimental and extremely uncommercial album The End Of The Game and faded into obscurity, taking on a succession of menial jobs."

Johnny Allen "Jimi" Hendrix  (b. Nov 27 1942)


In the early morning hours of September 18, 1970, Jimi Hendrix was found dead in the basement flat of the Samarkand Hotel at 22 Lansdowne Crescent in London. Hendrix died amid circumstances which have never been fully explained, and the exact details of his death will probably never be confirmed. He had spent the night with his German girlfriend, Monika Dannemann, and likely died in bed after drinking wine and taking nine Vesperax sleeping pills, then drowning in his own vomit. For years, Dannemann publicly claimed that Hendrix was alive when placed in the back of the ambulance; however, her comments about that morning were often contradictory and confused, varying from interview to interview. Police and ambulance reports reveal that not only was Hendrix dead when they arrived on the scene, but he had been dead for some time, the apartment's front door was wide open, and the apartment itself empty. Following a libel case brought in 1996 by Hendrix's long-term British girlfriend Kathy Etchingham, Monika Dannemann took her own life.

Jimi Hendrix reminded me of Mr. Frank Zappa, too caustic too ever be forgotten.

"The World Famous Patented Exploding British Drummer"

From Wikipedia:"Moon quickly gained a reputation for being highly destructive. He was known to lay waste to hotel rooms, the homes of friends, and even his own home, often throwing furniture out of high windows and destroying the plumbing with firecrackers. These acts were often fueled by drugs and/or alcohol, but most of the time, Moon was simply living out his larger-than-life persona...

Moon's penchant for the wild life would eventually be detrimental to both his drumming ability and his reliability as a band member. His playing deteriorated as the 1970s progressed, and he would often need to take two or three weeks to learn how to "play like Keith Moon" again, due to heavy drug and alcohol use. By 1978, he was only a shadow of what he once was."



On the 7 September 1978, after dining with Paul and Linda McCartney, Moon and his girlfriend, Annette Walter-Lax, left the party early and returned to a flat on loan from Harry Nilsson in Curzon Place, London. He died in his sleep at the age of 32, having overdosed on Chlormethiazole, medication taken as part of a program to wean him off alcohol. When the police investigated the cause of his death they determined that there were about 32 pills in his system. Some of the pills were undissolved. Moon's death was not the result of suicide, but was later ruled to be the result of "accidential misadventure," the common explanation being that Moon would take medication, pass out, and then re-awaken to take his medication again, forgetting that he had already. Coincidentally, Cass Elliot (singer with The Mamas & the Papas) had died while staying not only in the same flat a few years earlier, but also in the same bed. Following the loss of a second friend in the building, a distraught Nilsson could not face returning there and subsequently sold the flat to Pete Townshend. Moon's last words were: "If you don't like it, you can just fu*k off." after asking his girlfriend to make him steak and eggs for breakfast.

Moon died the same week as the release of the last Who album he appeared on, Who Are You. All four band members are shown on the album cover, with Moon seated on a chair labelled "Not to be taken away."

On a personal note, Keith moon has always been a hero/anti-hero of mine. While I was in the Army I developed a reputation for being a combination of Keith Moon and Oliver Reed. Fortunately, through Christainity, I was saved from the same end as him. RIP Keith.

No personal anecdote to tell, just another big big big loss to report.
