Searching

Searching for music is like searching for God …

they’re very similar

Searching – David Bowie

Searching – David Bowie – Knighthood

In 1999, David Bowie was made a Commander of the Ordre des Arts et des Lettres by the French government. He received an honorary doctorate from Berklee College of Music the same year.

However, David declined the royal honour of Commander of the Order of the British Empire (CBE) in 2000, and turned down a knighthood in 2003, stating later [that] “I would never have any intention of accepting anything like that.

I seriously don’t know what it’s for.

It’s not what I spent my life working for.”

“Searching” – David Bowie – Video

and it really only boils down to a few songs – based around

lonliness (to a certain extent),

coupled with isolation,

some kind of spiritual search,

and looking for a way into communicating with other people

and that’s about it

that’s about all I’ve ever written about in 40 years

Don’t Worry – it’s Not Loaded

Don’t worry, it’s not loaded

“Don’t Worry – it’s Not Loaded” – Terry Kath

Terry Alan Kath
Born January 31, 1946 – Died January 23, 1978
American Musician, Guitarist, “Chicago” Founding Member

“Don’t Worry – it’s Not Loaded” – “Chicago”

dont-worry-its-not-loaded-3

Kath was regarded as Chicago’s bandleader and best soloist; and his vocal, jazz and hard rock influences are regarded as integral to the band’s early sound. He has been praised for his guitar skills and described by rock author Corbin Reiff as “one of the most criminally underrated guitarists to have ever set finger to fretboard”.

For the group’s second album, Kath contributed an extended guitar solo on “25 or 6 to 4”, which became a live favorite.

“Don’t Worry – it’s Not Loaded” – Death

dont-worry-its-not-loaded-2

Terry Kath was a noted gun enthusiast. Regardless of Kath’s personal issues (drug use, alcohol use, weight problems, depression, etc.), it has been concluded Kath’s death was by an accidental, self-inflicted gunshot wound, and not a suicide.

By 1978, Kath was regularly carrying guns around and enjoyed playing with them. Around 5 p.m. January 23, after a party at roadie and band technician Don Johnson’s home in Woodland Hills, Los Angeles, California, Kath took an unloaded .38 revolver and put it to his head, pulling the trigger several times on the empty chambers.

Don Johnson warned Kath several times to be careful. Kath then picked up a semiautomatic 9 mm pistol and, leaning back in a chair, said to Johnson, “Don’t worry about it … look, the clip is not even in it.” To satisfy Johnson’s concerns, Kath showed the empty magazine to Johnson. Kath then replaced the magazine in the gun, put the gun to his temple and pulled the trigger.

However, there was a round in the chamber, and Kath died instantly.

“Don’t Worry, it’s Not Loaded” – “25 or 6 to 4”

“25 or 6 to 4” is a song written by the American musician Robert Lamm, one of the other founding members of Chicago. According to Lamm, the song is about trying to write a song in the middle of the night. The song’s title is the time at which the song is set: 25 or 26 minutes before 4 AM.

Because of the unique phrasing of the song’s title, “25 or 6 to 4” has been incorrectly speculated to be a veiled reference to drug quantities, or a mystical allusion.

now one of the greatest moments of my life

not only in just my musical life

but my personal life

was in this very building

in 1974

someone came on stage

and sang 3 songs with us

and I’d never heard a reception

in the whole of my life like it

it was 10 minutes

of the most deafening roar

and that person was very special

and of course you know

I am talking about John Lennon

so, I wanted to do

a very famous John Lennon song

because every time I play this building

I think of him

and how much I miss him

and how much he enriched all our lives

so this is a song called

“Come Together”

27 Club – Members – Note

Although the claim of a “statistical spike” for the death of musicians at that age has been repeatedly disproved by research, it remains a cultural phenomenon, documenting the deaths of celebrities, some noted for their high-risk lifestyles.

Eddie Vedder Spoke – Explanation

I don’t even know if the concept came across

there was shot in the video that we didn’t keep

of the young kid with the gun in his mouth

certain people wouldn’t let us show it

I understand, ya know

I understand why they don’t want teenagers with guns in their mouths in front of a classroom

I understand

wayne-pa-probate-lawyers-trust-living-eddie-vedder-spoke-2

but, uh, that’s what happened

I’m not making it up, ya know

and I’m sorry that there is a reason to make this video

or to write that song or a song about that

it shouldn’t have happened

[…]

I’m sorry that people had to watch it so many times
