RIP Carrie Fisher

Rest in peace sweet princess and thanks for all the great memories. I thought she would pull through as her condition was said to be stable. Anyway, a sad day for sure.

Damn it, f**k off with this year already.

 

I just revisited the movie "Fanboys" a few months ago, in which Ms. Fisher made a brief cameo and referenced one of her iconic Princess Leia moments. Since it had been a few years since I'd seen the flick (and hadn't seen Carrie Fisher in much of anything in the meantime), I'd forgotten about that bit; it was an unexpected bonus that made me smile.

 

 

R.I.P. Carrie/Leia. May the Force be with you, always.

I caught a newsclip on, I think it was Friday, suggesting she was stable too, so I didn't think anything more of it. As it turns out that was a completely false report and her condition basically did not change from the moment she left the plane until the end.

 

I can't say I am as familiar with her as most y'all guys, but as a kid, who didn't enjoy those first 3 Star Wars movies? Sure it's been a lifetime since I saw them last, but she and the movies are definitely etched in my memory, so it must count for something.

 

Another relatively young one... may she rest in peace.

That's unbelievable. The family must be in shock.

 

 

Yeah, 84 years old and she is said to have had a stroke whilst arranging the funeral for Carrie with her son and Carrie's brother. She was obviously well before my time, but seems a good looker back in the day. May they both rest in peace.

    • I dig the new tune!  Honestly, might be my favorite yet from these guys. I like that this kind of gets away from the  Bon Jovi Country vibe they sometimes had on the debut.  For me, this has a fresh, big sound to it.   Will have the new one on my radar.

    • After releasing two albums with AOR/Melodic Rock band Streets, ”1st” (1983) and ”Crimes In Mind” (1985), lead singer and keyboardist Steve Walsh returned to Kansas, to revive the band along with original members Phil Ehart (drums) and Rich Williams (Guitar). Furthermore, the lineup was completed by the addition of bassist Billy Greer (from Streets) and young, promising, former Dixie Dregs guitar man Steve Morse, who also contributed with composing skills and backing vocals. Eventually, the group’s ”Power” album was released in November of 1986, rather much to the vintage Kansas and Prog Rock purists dismissal, as I recall it. The heavier sound/direction and absence of violinist Robby Steinhardt, songwriter/keyboardist/guitarist Kerry Livgren and bassist Dave Hope were all contributing factors to the disapproval, it seems. However, mentioned ”Power” should perhaps instead be judged on its own merits, as it is what it is. Put out in a time when commercial Melodic Hardrock was very much in fashion, with FM rock radio and MTV as ever the important ingredients of daily life. In the end, the album actually landed at a respectable No. 35 on the Billboard chart, while the single/ballad ”All I Wanted” eventually rose to an even more impressive No. 19.

    • They have a real knack for writing (and producing!) songs that could be featured in '80s coming of age films and I mean that in the most complimentary way possible. Really putting the retro in retrowave 
    • Gonna post this as just recently discovered them, and loving what they do. I know most here wont care due to not being their style or not singing in English, but as a Band Maid fan, this shit is right up my street. They are a South Korean band. Posting two songs. One original and one a cover (Maneskin, a band I dont really care about) which is kinda impressive seeing as the song is in Italian, a language they don't speak ha ha
