Re: “People Who Died: Prince by Curtis McCrary

The "1999" single was released on September 24, 1982.

The 1999 LP was released on October 27, 1982.

I knew when I read that you remembered these songs from 1981 that the information was incorrect. Although I have been off by a year or two myself when recalling these things (especially considering that you are not all that much younger than I am), I would never have an article published without double checking this information before it went to print.

Fact checking, especially with online technology, is really easy these days.

Re: “Jingle Bell Shame

Hi Serene!

Just out of sheer curiosity, I have explored online and I can't find any credible evidence of that Roseanne Christmas album ANYWHERE. It seems to only exist in articles such as this one. At this time, I am convinced it is a hoax. I would at least be able to find evidence of it on Amazon or Discogs, since those sites list even the rarest of things whether they currently have copies available or not. eBay doesn't even have any history of this item ever being offered and Wikipedia doesn't have this album listed in Roseanne's discography.

One thing which I did find interesting is that it is listed on a Spanish language website which also includes the "Gene and Richard Simmons Holiday Duets" album...which I know is complete bullshit. Maybe you needed to do more research before including it in an article as if it is the real deal, or maybe you're aware it's phony-baloney and you're having a hearty laugh at my attempts to investigate it. If I overlooked something, please enlighten me. I like it when someone can actually take the time to prove me wrong and have something besides a link to a teabagger website to back their information up.

I'll be checking back here occasionally for a return response. DC

Re: “People Who Died: Glenn Frey by Larry Mac

I got to see a show in the Phoenix area back in the day that had the Eagles opening, followed by Jackson Browne and headlined by Linda Ronstadt!

Re: “People Who Died: Leonard Cohen by Howe Gelb

That is among the most moving elegies/eulogies I have ever read, brother. A big NC salute.

Re: “People Who Died: Leonard Cohen by Howe Gelb

I like "Ain't No Cure For Love," sax intro and all.

I still find it hard to believe that Leonard's finally gone home to where it's better than before. Goodbye, old poet. We miss you.

Re: “People Who Died: Dale 'Buffin' Griffin by John Convertino

I don't think Song For You was Leon's first record at all. There were Asylum Choir and Leon and Marc Benno albums before Leon went solo. Just letting you know.

Re: “People Who Died: Alvaro 'Acho' Durazo by Mark Beef

Thank you Mark for highlighting the love he spread through the joy of music. He was a great brother and a huge part of the Nogales community. I miss my little brother so much. Whenever I hear his favorite songs it brings back precious memories.

Re: “People Who Died: Leon Russell by Billy Sedlmayr

Wonderful tribute to the soul of our generation. I was mezmorized by Leon - the music and the attitude - from the first time I heard Delaney and Bonnie & Friends. From that day to present, I was fortunate to be at every concert, album release party, backstage at The Fillmore, that Leon attended or played in San Francisco. And I remember so many times our eyes connected. Me heart struck and Leon just trying to get through the crowd. Three artists have impacted my life: Bob Dylan, Leon Russell and Paul McCartney. This little girl in the vintage evening gown and boa feathers cried herself to sleep on hearing of your passing. Sweet Journey Mr. Bridges.

Thank you Mark for the kind words. Acho is my little brother that had a big and generous heart. Everybody loved him and we miss him so. Our Mom took it extremely hard and is slowly healing.

Re: “People Who Died: Glenn Frey by Larry Mac

Nice article Larry!

The hipsters who have dissed Glenn Frey and his fellow Eagles can suck it. It seems that there are a lot of those fucks around since The Dude made his opinion known in The Great Lebowski. Don't get me wrong, I think it's a great movie; although I think people forget that Jeff Bridges was portraying a major dumb ass...with dumb ass opinions. Glenn Frey is someone who deserves respect because unlike the current crop of #1 hit music "artists", this actual musician (not to mention the other Eagles band members, especially Joe Fucking Walsh) could actually record music without needing a producer/fixer/bullshitter to get his/their art to the people.

Thank you for this article highlighting a very talented and versatile musician. But please, do all of your KLPX listeners a yuuge (yes, I'm channeling my inner Orange Emperor) favour and diversify the Glenn Frey/Eagles songs which y'all are currently playing and have been playing since 1979. Shit, throw Glenn's "Partytown" song back into your music mix; I remember hearing it an awful lot on KLPX and KWFM back in 1982.

I am a fan of Eagles, but the moment I hear "Hotel California" (ugh!)...I do not hesitate to turn the the music way down, change the station or turn the radio off. I've heard this song enough to last me 100 lifetimes. Take this opinion into consideration when resetting the KLPX programming. No disrespect intended, just the opinion of me and my family, friends, coworkers and random fans of good music.

Thank you again, I truly mean it!

Sincerely, DC

Re: “People Who Died: Merle Haggard by Hank Topless

I made a comment on the article about Leonard Cohen and how his song "The Partisan" makes me cry, the "Hags" "Farmer's Daughter" also breaks me down every time.

Re: “People Who Died: Leonard Cohen by Howe Gelb

There are a handful of songs that always bring a tear to my eye, "The Partisan" is probably numero uno.

Re: “Noise Annoys

I like Lando. He is experimenting and pushing boundaries with his music and I think that is admirable. He is not a misogynist, not violent, he is introspective, emotional and positive. The same cannot be said for the other rapper mentioned in these comments.

Lando could easily move to LA and break out, but here in Tucson he is in control of his music and his art and it seems like that is more important to him than having neutered single go gold... He will get his, but it will be as an artist and not as a performer. Big Diff.
