The Rest in Peace Thread

Recommended Posts

Scott Weiland was definitely a great Vocalist and a true Rock Star. In his prime, he commanded the stage as well as anyone before or since. A Big Big loss. Rest In Peace.

For those interested in the names and stories of those killed this week here in Southern California here is an article from the Los Angeles Times with their names and their stories.  Sadly some of the people who died were from other lands who came here to seek a better life; a life that was cut short for reasons we are all familiar with.

thank you. I'm trying to refrain from commenting on religious, political and controversial topics out of respect for what was requested by our web host.. I will say this sucks and is happening way too often. My deepest sympathies to these people and their loved ones.

STP was the first band of the 90`s that I got into. As soon I heard Big Empty I was hooked. RIP Scott and keep on Rockin in Rock and Roll Heaven.

The most energetic enigmatic man to front a band I was fortunate to witness up close and personal on several occasions.
Rest In Eternal Peace, Scott Weiland.

I've been listening to STP and Velvet Revolver all night long..... Sad, sad path he chose, such a talented soul.

I saw this on Facebook, and was moved tremendously :

Thank you for posting that zepscoda.  We are feeling the same as you are.  That's such an emotional picture.  Such a shame, such a loss.

The world, or at least my world, seems a bit emptier without these two people in it. Both suffered unspeakable tragedy and pain, and found their way and lit it for others through their purpose and art. Rest in peace, John Trudell and Judith Fitzgerald.

John Trudell, American Indian activist, poet and actor, dies in California at 69

 Open Letter from Family of John Trudell

“We know all the people who love John want to know about plans and how to pay their respects. John left clear instructions for his passage and for what he wanted to happen after he crossed over. He did not want a funeral or any kind of single gathering. He also did not want his family to write a standard style obituary or ‘toot his horn.’ He didn’t want to tell people how to remember him.

“His wishes are for people to celebrate life and love, pray and remember him in their own ways in their own communities.

“With love for all.”

Remembering Judith Fitzgerald, 1952–2015

The Canadian poet and critic Judith Fitzgerald died peacefully on Nov. 25, just weeks after turning 63. Her achievements were many, including more than 20 collections of poetry, four edited anthologies

 

 More than just a brilliant writer, however, Fitzgerald was also a champion of the arts and culture in general. From her home in Northern Ontario, she wrote reviews, blogs, columns, criticism, and feature articles on sports, music, and the literary arts.

Are you sure about this? I don't see an announcement anywhere...

On the official FB page.

There is no easy way to say this…our mighty, noble friend Lemmy passed away today after a short battle with an extremely aggressive cancer. He had learnt of the disease on December 26th, and was at home, sitting in front of his favorite video game from The Rainbow which had recently made it’s way down the street, with his family.

We cannot begin to express our shock and sadness, there aren’t words.

We will say more in the coming days, but for now, please…play Motörhead loud, play Hawkwind loud, play Lemmy’s music LOUD.
Have a drink or few.

Share stories.

Celebrate the LIFE this lovely, wonderful man celebrated so vibrantly himself.

HE WOULD WANT EXACTLY THAT.

Very sad news. He led quite a full life you have to give him that. He was from my home town of Stoke on Trent. First saw him with Hawkwind in 1972 then a few times with Motorhead. Usually came out deaf for a few days.

Goodness! He died two days after his diagnosis.  Not even enough time to get his affairs in order.  My condolences to his family.
