My Tribute to the Aughts - Third in a Trilogy

Above is a fan made, video tribute to Jam Master Jay (October 30, 2002). Above that is a video introduction to Howard Zinn's A People's History of American Empire, narrated by Viggo Mortensen. Sadly, Zinn passed away earlier this week. On that somber note, here's the third and final volume of my Tribute to the Aughts.

In one last blatant attempt to get you to comment, who do you think was the most significant Rock & Roll-Related death of the decade? I'll give you one I forgot (and he wasn't listed in the Wiki article I linked). How about Sam Phillips? No Sam Phillips, no Elvis. No Elvis, No Beatles. No Beatles, end of Western Civilization as we no it.

But seriously, it was tremendously fun compiling these three discs, but at the same time it was a little depressing. I can only imagine that the next decade will bring even more significant deaths, as the figures who make up the first and second waves of Rock & Roll aren't getting any younger. I hope I'll still be around to catalog it.

Happy Listening!

Damn, and I just found out that J.D. Salinger died. What a week.

Well, since you already took (the other) Sam P, my vote is for Joey, Dee Dee and Johnny. No Ramones, no Sex Pistols. No Sex Pistols, no .

I have really enjoyed these comps--I didn't know that several of these folks had passed. Hell, I was surprised that some of these folks made it as long as they did!

laura said...

Also, I thought that Chuck Biscuits was still among the quick. Weren't the rumors of his death (to paraphrase another Sam) a bit premature?

Also also, hope Mr. Salinger is now in a better mood, if not a better place.

Well shiver me timbers! It was a hoax? Accroding to Brooklyn Vegan you're right! I caught the first wave of the news, but never saw the retraction. Weird.
