It would have been interesting if FB & Instagram had been around 25 years ago.

Bookface and instagram are the ultimate band wagon vehicles for people to demonstrate their supposed knowledge, outrage , sadness etc... just to try to somehow feel more superior than their peers.

When David Bowie passed so many people where suddenly in mourning... people that really didn't even know more than one or two of his songs but it became almost trendy to post how saddened you where and how the world had lost a genius ( which he was by the way )
a similar outpouring for Prince ( who was also a genius ) but again twats who didn't even know his music or writing were similarly distraught at the worlds loss.

so will they be missed as much probably should be but the current generation will have moved on to the next celebrity passing and will be too busy mourning them to remember.

That would be gold!!!!
Heaps of photos of families playing board games being posted.....

The younger a star dies the more they are remembered.....
People love to speculate endearingly on how great one would have been....
Where as ones that were great and died late dont seem to be remembered very well,
The death has no shock when they die old.....
John lennon
James dean
Heath ledger
Whacko
Kurt Cobain
All died unexpectedly and are well remembered

What a stupid ****ing question anyway. Seabeaze threads get more bizarre and ****ed up by the day.




That's where your personal choice comes into it. If you don't like a thread, don't reply to it. How hard is that really?

Or you could just take the piss out of people that do create something if you are lazy and angry.

If in your daily life, you don't hear about said deceased for years except for when they cark it, then they probably won't be missed.

The nevermind album had a real powerful effect on many. I was 19 at the time and i knew people in their 40s at the time (93) that were gobsmacked by that album.
It was pure genius. Everything. The riffs. The lyrics (even though they made no sense) every instrument and every part played was good.
Lyrics didnt need to make sense because the songs made you feel something.
As far as the posters question goes i think its ridiculous.
Personally i respect David. Prince and GM. But they all kinda matured, made alot of albums and passed. Kurt didnt change mentally from being a broke musician once they became popular. He just got more wasted and self-destructive but still loved to play and create music with Krist and Dave .They hated the industry, werent ready for it and despised the likes of GNR.
it's a totally different scenario.
Kurt is really in the realm of hendrix i feel. A bright creative light that burned out. DAVID B. GEORGE M AND PRINCE SWITCHED TO LEDS AGES AGO.

Yeah...but its because Kurt died young....whose to say if he didnt die he would have fallen out of popularity. .....
Whose to say he wouldn't have done dumb offensive things....like his former wife
Nirvana were good....but not much range....once the shock value of thier riffs wears off, then theres not much there.......just like gunners.......you can listen to half there songs for 20sec then its over. .....
The journey pearl jam has taken its fans on has been interesting as they have aged.....eddie with age has changed from a destructive message to a more matured search for peace....who knows what kurt would have done, but Nirvana was around a while and really just followed the same formula on all thier albums....
Dying young and around the peak of your popularity is what creates notoriety. ....

Kurt who?

When you think about it the only rock person who died young and made a lasting impression on the world was Jimi Hendrix.

Bollocks.. Janis? Morrison? Marley? Stevie Ray Vaughn? Hell, even Jeff Buckley!

As much as Nevermind was a cracker, don't forget what a disappointment In Utero was.. we will never know if there was greatness like Nevermind in Cobain or the band again.. unlikely in Cobain's junked, bloated state.. and with the Courtney sucubus on board too.

But don't let the facts get in the way of a good myth.

Better to burn out than fade away (and never have to live up to the legend) it seems

I loved Nevermind, and it was truly a pivotal album, but when listening recently I was underwhelmed and (to me) it has not aged as gracefully as say.. the Pumpkins Siamese Dream or other albums of the era.

Youre right about the nevermind album not standing the test of time. I totally agree.

I have no doubt that all those people are fondly remembered by many people and that their music was great.

But Hendrix changed the way the electric guitar was played and that impact is still felt today. Every person playing a modern electric guitar is using equipment and techniques that Hendrix pioneered.

I love the big boom crash and crunch of in utero as well as clean polished sound on nevermind a recent release in the last couple of years of a performance by nirvana at the reading festival in 92 has reaffirmed my love of this classic band not to mention unplugged the icing on a very impressive cake

The "Ten" by Pearl Jam changed the music back then. It came out just before the "Nevermind" ...
"Nirvana" was unbearable to listen to..overrated crap..IMO

BTW this band Kurt Cobain called "the best band in the world"...Their frontman looks like...hmmm...

Not doubting the impact Hendrix had on axe slingers across time but "the only rock person who died young and made a lasting impression on the world" Embellishing just a tad IMO.

One of the shames in JH cashing in early was not getting to see the potential of the non guitar music he had in him and potential role as producer of other's greatness.

Guess we will never know.. or is it never mind?

Sorry but that's wrong, David Bowie had such a broad appeal that because of his talent that people mourned his loss.

Had nothing to do with social media other than people could post how they feel.

Prince is the same, shameful post really.

Calling people twats for expressing themselves

Regardless of what people think of Nirvana, they also spawned the Foo Fighters,
I am a harsh music critic but this is Epic.
Two sensational bands.

I am glad they weren't...
To answer your question, GM has been largely ignored in this thread, good sign he won't be missed by anyone here.
