Man! All of our sweethearts are dying so young!

The most difficult subjects can be explained to the most slow-witted man if he has not formed any idea of them already; but the simplest thing cannot be made clear to the most intelligent man if he is firmly persuaded that he knows already, without a shadow of a doubt, what is laid before him.” - Leo Tolstoy, The Kingdom of God is Within You (1894).

Ian Tyson, 89
From wikipedia:
"Ian Dawson Tyson CM AOE (September 25, 1933 – December 29, 2022) was a Canadian singer-songwriter who wrote a significant number of modern folk songs, including “Four Strong Winds" and "Someday Soon", and performed with partner Sylvia Tyson as the duo Ian & Sylvia."
I spent much time listening to them and also others covering their tunes during The Great Folk Scare of the 60's.

Re: Baba Wawa, at 93
on 3rd thought, AZPaul3, it must have been rather rude of me to post so soon after your post. for 8 days there was nothin. Then i hear about Ian Tyson, write it and hit POST only to have it replace your post in Percy's listing. i should always hit the REFRESH button first!
i'm not sure I ever liked the SNL Baba Wawa, but anyway, thanks!

Re: Jeff Beck
One of the few people to get a name-check in one of my songs, The Elevator Man:
he aint quite the quicker of the pick of these pickers
we've seen come & go, day t' day
no, he aint no magician, just a simple technician
no, he aint no Jeff Beck, just an elevator tech
no Lost Planet Airman, just a modest repairman
with a simple......direct way to play
Thanks, Tanypteryx! That's some wikipedia entry! wow!

Re: Jeff Beck
When I see so many names from my youth (such as Jeff Beck) I am reminded of my own mortality and how I, as all of us, am only here for a relatively short time. It makes me think!

Re: Jeff Beck
And again you make everything about yourself and drag stuff off-topic. You were a mod? What the hell was Percy thinking?

What can be asserted without evidence can also be dismissed without evidence. -Christopher Hitchens

Facts don't lie or have an agenda. Facts are just facts

"God did it" is not an argument. It is an excuse for intellectual laziness.

If your viewpoint has merits and facts to back it up why would you have to lie?

Re: Jeff Beck
Why would I bother to think up insults and condescending comments about you when I can just throw the mud back at you that you sling at me? It saves mud.
Anyway, my intention was simply to honor the memory of Jeff Beck as I remember him.
You are the one who attacked me for my eulogy.

Re: Jeff Beck
Another word you do not know the meaning of.
Eulogy
quote:
a speech or writing in praise of a person or persons, especially one who recently died or retired, or as a term of endearment.
Eulogy - Wikipedia
Instead of talking about him, you talked about your own mortality. Not a eulogy.

Re: Jeff Beck
My mistake. I was simply recounting my memories of knowing about him when I was growing up. I remember the super group of Paige,Clapton and Beck and I remember exploring his songs and style of guitar playing. We all endlessly discussed (and argued) about who was the greatest or best guitarist. I defended Beck, though the front runners were Hendrix vs Jimmy Paige.
