Soul Dame

Born Mary Isobel Catherine Bernadette O'Brien, in London, Dusty Springfield is widely regarded by many as one of the finest soul singers of all time, an accomplishment made even more notable by the fact that she was a "blue eyed soul" singer - a Caucasian singer who sang material in a way normally associated with African-American singers. It is also notable that she was held in high esteem by many black singers (such as Martha Reeves) whom she, in turn, also emulated and idolised.

In 1995, Springfield was diagnosed with breast cancer. She received treatment and, for a time, the cancer was in remission. However, the cancer recurred in 1997, and Springfield lost her battle with the disease in March 1999 at the age of 59, just ten days before she was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Shortly before her death, she was awarded an OBE (Order of the British Empire, making her a Dame) for her contributions to music, although she was by then too ill to attend the award ceremony. Her funeral was held at St. Marys in Henley on Thames, where she resided for the last few years of her life. A marker dedicated to her memory can be found outside the church.

Was it an excuse good enough for me to get you to correct me AGAIN?  :x
Or maybe I was just as confident you'd post straight after me, with an in-depth essay on such a wonderful artist?
DV, time for a change in here. Time has come.  :-D :roll:  :wink:

One of my favourite songs ever. One of my favourite singers, ever.

The biography of Freddie Mercury is to considerable degree a story of Queen. The rest of Queen's biography, I don't want to know    :|

**Not to mention I really really really fancied him in the "I Want To Break Free" video. Ok, I'll spare you the nasty thoughts  :crazy: **

Rock'n'Roll Damnation

British-born Ronald Belford "Bon" Scott was arguably the most charismatic front man Australia has ever seen. His tough-yet-cheeky persona on stage with AC/DC made him a macho icon that men revelled in and girls loved. His high-pitched vocals, larrikin nature and loutish behaviour rolled up into an image that's been one of the most enduring in rock history. However, Scott was also notorious for being a heavy drinker and this would eventually lead to tragedy. After a night of heavy drinking in London's Camden Town, he passed out in a friend's car and was left to "sleep it off".

He was found dead in the early hours of February 19th, 1980. He was 33 years old. The cause of death listed on his death certificate was "Acute alcoholic poisoning".

Scott was buried in Fremantle Cemetery. The gravesite has become one of Australia's most treasured cultural icons and is included on the list of classified heritage places. On July 9, 2006, the plaque was stolen from the site on what would have been his 60th birthday.

I learned to play a hard, mean air guitar to those outstanding tracks, btw, and my first real guitar was a gen-u-wine Gibson SG, just like Angus.

R&B Crash
TLC formed in 1991, when the three members where 19. T
The next year, the group made its debut with the multimillion-selling "Ooooooohhh ... On the TLC Tip," which spawned the hits "Ain't 2 Proud 2 Beg" and "Baby-Baby-Baby." Lopes was the group's rapper; Watkins and Thomas handled the vocals.
In 1994, the group's second album, "CrazySexyCool," became an even bigger hit, helped by the chart-toppers "Waterfalls" and "Creep."
The same year, Lopes set fire to the Atlanta-area mansion she shared with former Atlanta Falcon Andre Rison. She pleaded guilty to arson and was sentenced to a halfway house and five years' probation, as well as a $10,000 fine.
In 1995, the group declared bankruptcy.
In 2000, Lopes challenged the other members of the group to make solo albums so fans could choose the most popular member of TLC. Her own solo album, the recently released "Supernova," sold poorly and had little radio play.
Lisa "Left Eye" Lopes, member of hip-hop R&B group TLC, was killed in a car accident in Honduras on April 2002.

The Madcap Laughed

Roger Keith "Syd" Barrett, the English singer, songwriter, guitarist and artist will be best remembered as one of the founder members of the group Pink Floyd. However, as the band began to attract a large fanbase, the pressures placed on Barrett contributed to him experiencing increasing psychiatric illness.

His behavior became increasingly unpredictable, partly as a consequence of frequent experimentation with psychedelic drugs such as LSD. Many report seeing him on stage with the group, strumming on one chord through the entire concert, or not playing at all. At a show at The Fillmore West in San Francisco, during a performance of "Interstellar Overdrive," Barrett stood motionless, and slowly detuned his guitar. The other band members soon tired of Barrett's antics, and in January 1968, on the way to a show at Southampton University, the band elected not to pick Barrett up. he never performed with them again, and became a recluse.

Syd Barrett had one noted reunion with the members of Pink Floyd, in 1975 during the recording sessions for Wish You Were Here. Barrett attended the Abbey Road session unannounced and watched the band record "Shine On You Crazy Diamond" coincidentally, a song about him. His ex-bandmates did not at first recognize him . Eventually, they realised who he was and Roger Waters was so distressed that he was reduced to tears.

In an interview for a 2001 BBC documentary Rick Wright said: "It was very shocking... seven years of no contact and then to walk in while we're actually doing that particular track. I don't know coincidence, karma, fate, who knows? But it was very, very, very powerful".


Barrett died on 7 July 2006 at his home in Cambridge at the age of 60 due to "complications arising from his diabetes".

The Brit Damned Poet


Nicholas Rodney Drake (1948 1974) was an English singer/songwriter known for his autumnal songs, his  guitar tunings and his  right-hand fingerpicking guitar technique.
Between 1969 and 1972, he recorded three haunting albums, which failed to find a wide audience during his lifetime, but have steadily grown in stature to the extent Drake is now  consideredone of the most influential acoustic songwriters of the last 40 years.

Nick Drake battled with depression, insomnia and acute shyness through out his life, and the topics would often appear as the subject of his lyrics.
He was increasingly frustrated by the lack of recognition given to his music, and upon completion of his third album, Pink Moon (1972), he drew back from both live performance and recording, retreating to his parent's home in Tanworth-in-Arden, where he became increasingly introverted and distant from those close to him.

On November 25, 1974, Drake died from an overdose of antidepressants.
He was 26.

Clifford Lee Burton (February 10, 1962 September 27, 1986) was a bass guitarist best known for his work with the American heavy metal band Metallica from 1982 until 1986. As a bassist he was known for his unique style, which made heavy use of distortion and effects (several of which are usually associated with non-bass guitars), best exemplified on his signature piece, "(Anesthesia) Pulling Teeth".

Clifford Burton - another one gone but must never be forgotten by the Metallica fans. :cry:

Never thought I'd know of another Joy Division fan in my whole damned life. At least something good came out of losing Ian Curtis, though (New Order).
