    In December 2014, 20 young school children and 6 staff members were murdered at Sandy Hook school.
    Was there a thread started here on the seasons? No.
    June this year 9 worshipers murdered in a Charleston church.
    Was there a thread started here on the seasons? No.
    Good people died in lots of sad circumstances this year.

    Lemmy smoked like a chimney, drank like a fish and according to Rolling Stone magazine still "liked his daily speed" even after his heart surgery. An early death from cancer. Who knew eh?

    Why is this thread here?
    Sheesh!
    Like that cat says -
    Why?!

    lemmy was a musician

    and a hugely influential one at that

    why the actual FVCK not celebrate his life and career by bringing some of his songs on uke?

    if you wanna start a thread for any of those other people

    or anyone else

    See I reckon the seasons board is basically about participating in the weekly season.

    I like that there are some other threads but it ain't a place to plonk a new thread whenever you feel like it imho.

    some extra threads are ok, but not all?

    not this one?

    who gets to decide which ones are ok, or not ok?

    you?

    I did go and look at their music again since its been over 20 years since I last gave them a go. I was surprised to see they had just released an album this year. I listened to most of it and while its an amazing album as they still sound like motorhead nothing jumped out at me musically. I was impressed at how much energy the man put into his voice at 69-70 years old. He was a rocker for certain.




    "Electricity"

    Don't speak of your beliefs
    They are yours to keep
    Memories will fade
    As time goes by

    Remember just yourself
    Me or someone else
    You will be the only one to try

    Freedom to believe don't cost a thing
    Innocence should not be bought and sold

    Kiss a bolt of lightning
    It'll make you sing

    Electricity deep in your soul

    Don't tell me who I am
    I don't give a damn
    Your dreams are nothing
    You're a nowhere man

    Think you're really smart
    Think you're pure in heart
    Go ahead and tell yourself you're not

    Disbelief don't ever cost a dime
    Innocence should not be bought and sold

    You need an open mind
    Shiver up your spine

    Electricity deep in your soul

    Don't speak of time gone by
    Don't even try
    My memories are skulls and vultures in the sky

    I remember everyone,
    Tall or deaf, and dumb
    Now I am the only one passed by

    Freedom to believe don't have a price
    Innocence never gets too old
    You need a bolt of rock
    Severe toxic shock

    Electricity deep in your soul

    We have a host trying to run a season on this board this week.
    You've started up not one, but two threads, on The Seasons board this same week.
    No I don't get to decide but I do get to say I think it is pretty impolite.
    They are clearly NOT season related.
    There are other places you could post these threads.
    A while ago you set up your own little Tigers theme here on the Seasons Board again while someone was actually hosting a season.
    Be considerate to the weekly host is all I'm asking.
    And I'm not saying not to post those threads I'm just wishing out of consideration to the season host that you would post them somewhere else.

    thanks so much for posting that, al, i hadn't heard that song

    it's a great one! i think the thing with lemmy is, if you like what he does, he did it for years and years and YEARS, if he floats your boat you are gonna be able to check out any of his stuff, from decades and decades of songs, and go wow yeah love it

    what a guy!

    pa, you know, if we're talking consideration i think it was totally inconsiderate and disrespectful of you to swing by a thread dedicated to celebrating the life of a recently deceased musician, loved by many, and basically say his life and work didn't warrant celebration

    before you go around telling other people how to post maybe you should look at your own posts, your own history of posting, and ask if it has always been respectful - including of hosts and their seasons.

    and i am asking you now, this thread is about celebrating lemmy. if you wanna have a debate about who can post what where, will you please take that discussion somewhere else?

    Here's a list of some active - non-Season - threads:

    Healing Songs for Rex
    seasonistas play other instruments
    just wondering...seasonal anticipation syndrone
    Peace, love and blessing to all seasonista friends
    A Seasonista Wrote This...stuff
    Well Wishes (and Songs) for Tommy
    Ukulele Haiku - 1 min songlets
    GoFundMe-Ukulele Kids Club

    I think that every one of them are appropriate. I think that none of them detract, or detracted, from whatever active Season it was posted in. None are hurtful, or unsupportive of any and all Seasons.

    Sheesh. Drama sucks. Lighten up and celebrate life, Seasons, and music. And right now, Lemmy.

    Toatally agree with everything but Lemmy - he may be deserving of a thread but it didn't belong here in the seasons. Totally non season related again mho.

    I notice you quite correctly didn't include the It's My Birth(WEEK)day thread - we all have a birthday but don't start up a thread here in the Seasons about it. Sheesh.

    OK here is a list of some other muso's who died in the last week.

    28
    John Bradbury, 62, English drummer (The Specials)
    Guru Josh, 51, Jersey musician
    27
    Stevie Wright, 68, English-born Australian singer (The Easybeats)
    25
    Manuel Agujetas, 76, Spanish flamenco singer
    Geraldo Roca (pt), 61, Brazilian singer, gunshot
    24
    Ove Johansson, 79, Swedish jazz saxophonist.
    Takeharu Kunimoto, 55, Japanese musician, acute respiratory failure
    23
    Zemya Hamilton (sv), 50, Swedish singer, multiple sclerosis


    Now I really thought Stevie Wright was an iconic rock group front man and was actually copied by many who followed. His lifestyle was responsible for his early passing - just like Lemmy.
    I did post something about his passing but not here on the seasons.

    Because this is THE SEASONs.

    Imagine if everyone just posted what they like where they like.

    Last thing I will say about it.

    You just keep doing whatever you like BEVomu.
    Happy Birthday!
