so today i am dealing with the death of a long time loved musician Gord Downie. i posted before about when i fell inlove with the tragically hip so i do not need to repeat it but safe to say that this band has been a staple of my music collection since the days of cassettes.
I am a little conflicted about how one goes about greiving the loss of someone admired, but who is a total stranger. all i know of him are his songs. i think this is the first time that one of my favourite artists has passed on after my introduction to them. alot of other musicians died before i knew their music. i wasnt really personally affected by resent losses like prince or bowie or petty etc. i appreciated them, even admired their acomplishments but their music wasnt really a part of my life.
but this group was, and is. anyway i said i wouldnt repeat about how important they are in my life but i have lol oh well. that all being said
how do you greive when one of your favourite musicians dies. do you put on their music and have a bit of a cry? do you make a bunch of posts on a music forum? do you wear their band tshirts and quote them all day? lol i guess thats all there is to do really.
who have you lost from your music world? feel free to rant about how important they were and are to you. share the links please new tunes are medicine.
