2016 was for the most part a good year for me. Two big losses, although one I didn't find out about until the second day of 2017... so it's hard to say it affected my 2016 as it's only tormenting the start of my 2017.

 

But it's hard to call an entire year bad. There were/are sad moments, but a thousand great memories with the family, so thankfully the positives far outweigh the negatives. 2017 is off to a horrible start that's going to take a while to get over, but as always, I'm hoping for a good year and I wish y'all the best for the year ahead too. May it be super.

Damn. What happened? If it's not too much to ask.

In a nutshell, a very good mate of mine was killed in a car crash on the 30th of December. Left behind his wife and two young kids. I only found out on the 2nd of January, but have not been able to think of a single thing since. He was my surf buddy for about a decade, and that is a lot of time to talk about life and times. Dude loved his kids more than anything on this planet, and knowing he never got home to them, or will ever see them again... man it's taking it's toll on me. Thankfully, I've not ever really lost anyone close to me before, and I've discovered my tools for dealing with such a thing aren't great. Four days since I found out and I still just can't wrap my head around that fact that that's it for him. Nothing more. As quickly as that he misses out on the rest of his life with his kids, and all the plans he had for them as they grew up. Incomprehensibly sad.

 

Anyway, I won't push it here, but there's a gofundme thing set up for his wife and kids if anyone has some spare change. There's a big link on my Facebook page if anyone wants to check it out. Actually I'm not sure if it comes up to the public or not, so the link is here if anyone can help out... absolutely no pressure at all:

wow, sorry to hear that............ :(

Yes very sad indeed and having a family and leaving them every day in and of itself is tragic as we miss so much in those numerous hours we are away, but obviously doesn't compare to never coming home. I hope you Geoff and in turn the family is strong and can begin to cope and heal.

 

I know it has been just shy of 2 years since our local "silver pressed" guru has left us and I still miss him dearly.

That really sucks, Geoff. I've never lost anyone close to me, and I always thought I would be alright if I had, but lately I'm not so sure. Especially when kids are involved. I can't imagine what the family must be going through right now. And your loss is no less great, as well. You'll be in my thoughts.

It's so weird, as if I'd thought about something like this before, but I also keep saying to myself that it's "hitting me harder than I thought it would." As if I'd thought about something like this and how I'd deal with it? I dunno. But I completely know what you mean... I guess I thought I'd be able to deal with something like this easier, but it's much trickier when it actually happens. At the moment I just want to the funeral to come so we can say some sort of a farewell, but stuff doesn't move quickly this time of year.

 

I know in time I will be in a better headspace, but as you say Terry, I guess it will never go away. All the what ifs and whys and hows... But whatever I am experiencing, I know it's not a scratch on what his family is feeling... especially those poor kids, who probably just can't get their little heads around it at all. I'm old and can't do it. Can't imagine how a little mind goes through something like this. To actually understand that they will never see their Dad again.

 

Anyway, I'm getting depressed again.

 

May the rest of 2017 bring good things.

    • White Lion's Big Game was a massive letdown after Pride but over the years it's grown on me. Cinderella's Heartbreak Station was always way too bluesy and too far removed from the debut but again the quality of the songs sunk in after about 15 years. Spread Eagle's Open To The Public was a bit of a letdown compared to the debut but there's enough strong stuff on it once it gets under your skin to enjoy it. Whitesnake's Slip of the Tongue was another real letdown post 1987. Vai didn't do the songs any favours but again there's a pretty good collection of songs once I got over my disappointment. Anything by Harem Scarem after the debut. Still there best for me by a long shot but heaps of solid albums in the mix. Shotgun Messiahs 3rd industrial album. On first listen wtf but songs are fkn awesome. Same goes with  Wasp's KFD.
    • I've mentioned it before, but I wasn't in love with either Roxx Gang's 'Things you've never done before' or Vain's 'No Respect' when I first heard them. That was in the early stages, though. Vain's in one of my top 10 albums and I love the Roxx Gang one too, so things certainly changed.  Neither are exactly my favourite albums ever, but Cinderella's 'Heartbreak station' and Warrant's 'Ultraphobic' both took a long while for me to come around on. I actually returned the Cinderella CD when I bought that one, and only re-purchased it second hand many years later. Still don't love it, but dislike it less, lol.  To answer Karpetface's question, not to the degree of hatred, but back in the day when all I ever had were CDs and cassettes and once they were bought they were bought, I tended to give everything a lot more chances than I would today, where music consumption is the polar opposite. When I only had dozens, or up until it was a couple of hundred albums... the time to give something a chance again seemed to come around a lot more often than these days, when there's a million songs to choose from all the time. 
    • Now also the official video is out, recorded live in front of  large crowd in California.  This song seems to be a real grower. Was actually a bit disappointed after first 2 listens. But still played it few more times. And then it happened - when I was doing other things, without music, parts of song started playing in my head ;-).   
    • not quite is accordance with the thread, but I saw Vain support Skid Row back in the day and really didn't like them, then years later actually discovered that I liked the debut - it was after Enough Rope was released and I worked backwards. Also I returned the John Kilzer Memory in the Making cd, but came to love the album but still don't own the cd
    • I think I saw them at Cathouse in St.Kilda .  It got re issue 3 years ago with a different cover
    • Have you had a chance to give "Bangalore Choir - On Target" a sping yet?
    • They actually sound great together, despite your reservations towards Floor. 
    • Not at all what I thought a band called "Days of Wine" would sound like; I was expecting something much more laid back. This could be awesome, though.  There have been many days of wine in my life lately. ;}
    • Days Of Wine | Facebook   The self-titled “Days Of Wine” is the upcoming debut album from DAYS OF WINE, consisting of close friends from the Oslo / Norway rock music scene. After years of playing in their respective bands, it was time to join forces to make a high class melodic classic rock album. All are reputed musicians from the major Melodic Hard Rock scene; superb songwriter / keyboardist Leif Johansen (21 Guns, Phenomena), singer Leif Digernes (Westpoint), guitarist Tom Sennerud (Stoneflower), drummer Geir Digernes (Sons Of Angels) and guitarist Jon Johannessen (Stoneflower, Ronni Le Tekro’s Kingdom). Some friends also came by and contributed to some of the songs, i.e. brothers Gregg Bissonette (drums, David Lee Roth) and Matt Bissonette, (bass, David Lee Roth, Joe Satriani), Jon Pettersen (Ammunition), Lars Andrè Kvistum (Conception) keyboards, and Ronni Le Tekro (TNT) dropping some guitar. You can’t go wrong with “Days Of Wine”; this is classic, traditional melodic hard rock / classic rock from the Scandi factory. During Spring 2021, ten songs were recorded for the self-titled debut at Stable Studios, Oslo. The songs are based on the lyrics of Leif Johansen but musically grounded in the Classic Rock genre. Leading the charge is the melodic and “raspy” voice of singer Leif Digernes. To emphasize the classic rock vibe, all backing tracks were recorded “live” in the studio. With such astute and accomplished musicians, it couldn’t have been done in any other way. 01 – Seven Days In Love 02 – Devil`s Bill 03 – Spread Your Wings 04 – Healerman 05 – Like The Others (feat. Markus Klyve) 06 – Never Stop Believing 07 – Angels In Disguise (feat. Gregg & Matt Bissonette) 08 – My Last Kiss 09 – Paint The Sky 10 – Days Of Wine Leif Digernes: Vocals (Westpoint, Bronx, Stuntbandet) Leif Johansen, Bass, keyboards, Vocals (21 Guns, Phenomena, A-ha) Geir Digernes, Drums/Percussion, (Sons Of Angels, Stuntbandet) Tom Sennerud, Guitar, Vocals (Stoneflower, Diezel) Jon Johannessen, Guitar, (Stoneflower, Diezel, Ronni Le Tekro’s Kingdom)
