happy birthday, Sid Vicious
you were an idiot and you weren’t even that good at bass
My entire religious philosophy in one song.
That song is about an abortion, isn’t it?I believe that’s a part of it. There’s also mentions of that encounter Jim had with a Native American when he was a kid and references to the 1968 Democratic Convention.
GAAAAAAAWD “PEACE FROG” HAS SOME OF THE FUNKIEST MUSICAL SHIT GOING ON. THEM RIFFS. THAT ORGAN. THEM CRAZY LYRICS.
WHY IS IT CALLED “PEACE FROG”?
WHATEVER I’M TOO BUSY TRYING TO TWERK ALONG TO THE SONG.
THE DOORS - SPANISH CARAVAN
Holy fucking HD, Batman!
Well, hello there!
Today is the passing of a man I have gained so much respect for while I’ve studied him. A man with an aptitude in music. A man who was there for everybody. A man Jim could count on. A tall standing man who had enough charm to make anybody like him. These slender fingers will no longer touch the keyboard in a graceful manner. The glasses that complete the look will no longer be worn. The deep voice. The organist. Gone.
We mourn but we should not sulk.
He may be gone, but every little detail lives on.
Ray brought joy and art to musical culture. All good must end, as cheesy as it sounds. Why think about the bad? There is nothing that can or could’ve been done. We should come together in the name of the classic rock fandom, and celebrate the fucking awesome life Ray had. Because the music still lives on.
It will always live on.
1939 - forever
i am reminded that english is a flawed language every time I am forced to use “that that” in a sentence
