Jon English, Australian rock/theatre stalwart and guy whose records my Ma would sometimes play when I was young, has died from post-surgery complications.
The All Together actor continues the trend of 2016 taking people that have always been a part of the background noise of our lives.
An enterprising soul with too much time on their hands has managed to unearth Taylor Swift’s old MySpace account. Because I have too much time on my hands I read through her old posts and two in particular jumped out at me.
Taylor Swift is currently dating Calvin Harris. Rita Ora previously dated Calvin Harris. That in itself is probably enough to cause Taylor to release the the dogs with bees in their mouths and when they bark, they shoot bees at you.
“ I feel like me and Taylor might have sex / I made that bitch famous ”
Kanye West did another thing. And I don’t think it’s a big deal. Turns out that I’m more a fan of music and Rock & Roll than I am a fan of being easily offended; because I have no issue with this lyric. Perhaps it’s time to hand in my SJW card.
I kinda missed the boat on this one, but I felt the need to comment on it regardless: The infamous “27 Club” and Amy Winehouse’s baffling inclusion.
Brian Jones, Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, Jim Morrison, Kurt Cobain and… Amy Winehouse? No. No, I don’t think so.
The five people mentioned pre-Winehouse have all contributed so much to music that, long after their deaths, their legacy lives on. To compare Winehouse to these departed legends of rock is borderline insulting.
