    Pigpen from the Dead died early 70’s.

    It’s actually kinda amazing there weren’t more 70’s deaths given the amount of partying some of these guys did.

    I don't know why, but I thought there was a progression of dead Dead keyboard players, not just one. My bad..

    the funny thing about this post, of course, is how much you love to rip on punk and metal music. hair metal was really bad though and deserves all the scorn and ridicule we can pile on it, but don't take my word for it...

    A bit late, but . . .



    "People Who Died" and two other songs.... Stick around at least until the surprising appearance by a brother who has a pretty decent guitar solo.

    No, you were correct--he was just pointing out that Pigpen died far earlier than the 80s

    Keith Godchaux died in 1980, shortly after leaving the band.

    Brent Mydland died in 1990, while still in it.

    Wait... I don't rip on metal. Those guys can play, regardless of what either of us thinks of their hair and attire.

    They had a few but Pigpen was the most notable casualty. I’m sure @taosjohn knows better than me.

    there's plenty of great metal going way back...



    ...but hair metal was a late eighties sub-genre, it was watered down power pop metal. Bands like Van Halen, Iron Maiden, Judas Priest, Metallica, Motörhead, even Scorpions, for example, all metal bands, but they had some great songs. Hair metal borrowed heavily from those guys, but the songs were crap.

    You are confusing commercial success with importance. We see this all the time. In Hip-hop, Drake is what is know for Canadian Hip hop but Choclair was more influential. In American hip hop, Tribe is known but De la Soul were the first with sound. It happens all the time that the ones that break out of a genre aren't the best of it but have more of an it factor. That breakout group draws the fans and critics and new interest from casual fans. So for that, Nirvana deserves their roses.

    A while back @Auriaprottu talked about he wished black people had a song they could be angry all the time and I mean did you never hear DMX or M.O.P?

    I mentioned an entire genre dedicated to the disillusionment with suburbia and something or another, and pointed out that there was no such genre dedicated to such in the Black community. I may not have included the words "untutored" and "destructive", but that's a case of my not finishing my thoughts.

    Black folks haven't created a genre like that while growing up at the top of the food chain, with the fruits of other folks' labor at their tables...

    ...yeah, I've been told, and yeah, I continue to be surprised at this level of angst from people who seriously, visibly didn't have to look far in the early mid 70s or later to see how great they had it. I know of one guy posting in this thread who grew up in the whitest town in Nebraska. The rest of 'em ain't got no excuses. They're doing wonderfully and they always will be. Kyle may display his angst when he plays his vintage Les Paul and wails about the emptiness of it all, but Kyle ain't tryna trade places wif me. They'd take their chances being born the stupidest hillbilly in the worst part of West Virginia or Arkansas (I think they may have Alabama beat) because they'd have at least that going for them, and that might be enough.

    I mean, a soundtrack of Black life would likely sound a lot like the Lost Poets, but you see what kind of following the Lost Poets have (meager, compared to punk rock). I like 'em, but I cannot take them in long stretches.

    @luftmensch I saw your reply but I felt like I missed the deadline to respond. No, I think blues and gospel are at least part celebratory. I hear great beauty in both. I don't hear beauty in being rejected for this or that job or this or that loan or not being shown houses in this neighborhood because you look like you belong in that neighborhood. I don't hear a response to any of those things in blues or gospel, because there isn't one. No music can overcome or compensate for racial bigotry. Punk rock, by comparison, is a response to acne.

    BTW, I don't claim to speak for all Black folks. I do want to say that.

    As rock goes, I still like rock, classic rock, glam rock, the stuff non prog people call prog rock, pop rock, southern rock, 80s Brit rock, and the forms of metal that don't get too fluffycuffy classical. I'm sure those aren't the only types of rock-ish music that I like. But I think there are a lot of people here who don't like any of the above. I don't know how you get so disaffected in life that only one genre (punk rock, at that) can save you from drudgery.

    I love hair metal. It was all that was pumped out on US music in Africa. I came to Bronx expecting to hear that but I got KRS-One.

    I'd say that Wypipo born in the late 50s, 60s and early 70s grew up on AOR and like much of it. But how many friggin times can you listen to Money or Bohemian Rhapsody or Hotel California by the time you're a teenager? It became so lame & stale that although punk & new wave didn't have the same musicianship of Queen or The Eagles, it was new & more exciting. Think of rappers in the early 80s. They may have listened to the Supremes & Temptations as kids & liked them. But that's not who they wanted to be musically.
