That's really sad news. Didn't realise he had leukaemia.

RIP Arthur Lee

Why do we feel it's necessary to yak about bullsh*t in order to be comfortable?

That's when you know you found somebody special. When you can just shut the f*ck up for a minute, and comfortably share silence.

Yeah.

We've lost (at least) four musicians over the past couple of months.

I hate posting in the classic rock forum, but I just heard about his death. There's only one other person in the school that I've met who knows who Love is. His songwriting was so good, it's a damn shame to see him go, Forever Changes is the greatest undiscovered gem (to the average classic rock ass) of the psychedelic era. If you do not own that album, you are musically deprived. And "The Red Telephone" has one of the coolest progressions ever.

Because, there are too many people here who never seem to venture outside of what's deemed classic rock. Don't call me a Zeppelin hater or any **** like that, I have everything save BBC sessions. There are many incredibly closed-minded people on here.

You're reading too much into that. I didn't say anything about you. I just said I don't like coming to this forum because there are so many pricks, kind of like the metal forum, but the metal forum makes me feel guilty for liking metal. I don't like posting here, that's all. But I love Arthur Lee's music so damn much that I had to say something, it really bugs me that Syd and Lee died within a month of each other.

Theres pricks in every forum, you just have to know where to find them.

Maybe in death his music will find fame?

One can only hope.
Peace, peace, and that's my piece.

Okay.

I got the impression that you were calling me close minded because you specifically said, "Don't call me a Zeppelin hater or any **** like that", and I am the Pope of Zeppelinism, so I see where such an idea may have come from.

Yeah, I feel really sorry for this chick who really likes the Beatles, she just found out about Love like a week ago. Bad timing, bad timing. I wish there weren't so many puns.
