Very sad news. I've always had respect for AC/DC. "It's A Long Way To The Top (If You Wanna Rock 'N' Roll)" plays over the closing credits of the film School Of Rock. It's an anthem of the rock ethos, and it's Malcolm at his best.
Sorry to hear this. A few years ago and the only time I've ever travelled First Class over the Atlantic Malcolm was on our Flight and wandered around overnight nearly laying down on top of my daughter in the wrong seat so gave me an apologetic autograph in the morning. I thought he was drugged up but in retrospect maybe this was partly due to his Dementia.
Some Dancers who gave a good time, broke all the rules, played all the fools, yeah yeah yeah they blew our minds
I'd like to add my respects to Malcolm Young too. He and Angus were the driving force behind AC/DC. Both amazing musicians. I saw them at Wembley a few years back, they put on an incredible show and I'd say its probably the best concert I've ever been too such was the atmosphere on that balmy London night. Dementia is a horrible horrible thing. I hope I don't appear callous when I say I'm not too sorry to hear he has passed away, as it probably proved a happy release.
Ray Thomas, founder member, flautist and vocalist of the Moody Blues, passed away suddenly at his home in Surrey on Thursday 4th January.
The band’s 1967 single “Nights in White Satin” (from the ground breaking album “Days of Future Passed” - a number one album in the USA in 1972) was graced by a magical flute solo from Ray.
Sad news about France Gall, her Eurovision winner (Poupee De Cire, Poupee De Son) was the first high-tempo pop song to win and gave the competition some much needed oomph, extraditing it from the ponderous ballads which had dominated since its inception. She was a deadringer for Sienna Miller in her early days too. RiP.
