RIP to rapper and actor DMX, who has died today age 50. 

  

RIP DMX, growing up in Atlanta his song Up In Here was the soundtrack of the Braves team in the late 2000s. Unfortunately this will be another example of me fulling a appreciating an artists catalogue too late after they’re already dead.

RIP DMX

It's Dark And Hell Is Hot was definitely in heavy rotation for me a couple years back, great album

also liked him in Belly (I mostly just like the opening robbery scene in that movie tbh, but that's one of the coolest movie openings I can think of)

Sad to hear of the death of composer and producer Jim Steinman at the age of 73.

Most famous for his work with Meat Loaf, especially the classic Bat Out of Hell, he also worked with Bonnie Tyler (Total Eclipse of the Heart and Holding Out for a Hero were his), Celine Dion, Barry Manilow, Air Supply and more.

His bombastic semi-operatic writing and production brought something new to music, and while often imitated it was never bettered.

Saddened to hear of the death of astronaut Michael Collins, the often forgotten member of the Apollo 11 crew that saw man on the moon for the first time, aged 90.

Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin's names are writ large for being the first humans to step onto somewhere that wasn't Earth, while Collins orbited the moon in the command module.

He was one of only 24 humans who have been to the moon, even if he didn't get to step on it.

RIP Michael Collins (31 October 1930 – 28 April 2021)

Sir...

Early rock 'n' roll star Lloyd Price, whose hits included 'Lawdy Miss Clawdy,' dies at 88

Singer-songwriter Lloyd Price, an early rock ’n roll star and enduring maverick whose hits included such up-tempo favorites as “Lawdy Miss Clawdy,” “Personality” and the semi-forbidden “Stagger Lee,” has died. He was 88.

Price died Monday at a long-term care facility in New Rochelle, New York, of complications from diabetes, his wife, Jacqueline Price, told The Associated Press on Saturday.

Lloyd Price, inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1998, was among the last survivors of a post-World War II scene in New Orleans that anticipated the shifts in popular music and culture leading to the rise of rock in the mid-1950s. Along with Fats Domino and David Bartholomew among others, Price fashioned a deep, exuberant sound around the brass and swing of New Orleans jazz and blues that placed high on R&B charts and eventually crossed over to white audiences.

“Very important part of Rock history. He was BEFORE Little Richard!” rock singer and E Street Band member Steven Van Zandt said Saturday on Twitter. “Lawdy Miss Clawdy of 1952 has a legit claim as the first Rock hit.... Righteous cat. Enormous talent.”

RIP Lloyd Price apple01
