I hope he gets back on his meds soon. His shit is getting old.

What did you do, Flint, wake up and say to yourself "Prick, let's shit on every thread we come across."?

Shit away. I won't see it. When I come back, you will be on the Ignore list.

What is it with people like Flint when he gets this way? Is it that they think their life is shit, so they're not happy unless they are trying to make others' lives seem as shitty as their own? Why you gotta bring down the place, man? Just shitting everywhere....Goodbye crazy person.

Medication. Srsly.

I'm sorry you feel that way.
Best wishes. We're all in this together!

Well, things can seem a lot of ways.

respect individuals
:rolleyes: like flipping out on someone and cussing at them :thumb:

Oh please, your style and goals are very familiar to most of us here. :rolleyes:

I see your point Flint.

The capsule characterizations of different notables from "This Day in Music" were wildly different. Gravdigr just passed along the information uncritcally, just as he said he would in the OP.

Your argument with him, whatever dude. I think you're barkin up the wrong tree.

The *larger* issue of perpetuating black villainy and whitewashing similar scandals of others--that is completely legit. Fight the Power!

I challenged him to think about it. He declined.

But He did fire off an angry batshit response that was an inconceivably inappropriately ad hominem attack at me, personally. And for what? Like, shining a light on internalized racism in our society? In my view, that's a good thing. Agree or disagree, but "shooting the messenger" while avoiding a difficult discussion? We don't have time for that. I'm waaay past tiptoeing around white fragility.

Ironically, the OP contains this line:

Additions/corrections, opinions, and stories are always welcome.

1970, Jimi Hendrix was pronounced dead on arrival at St. Mary Abbot's Hospital in London at the age of 27 after choking on his own vomit. Hendrix left the message 'I need help bad man', on his managers answer phone earlier that night. Rumors and conspiracy theories grew up around Hendrix’s death. Eric Burdon claimed Jimi had committed suicide, but that’s contradicted by reports that he was in a good frame of mind. In 2009, a former Animals roadie published a book claiming that Jimi’s manager had admitted to him that he arranged the murder of Hendrix, since the guitarist wanted out of his contract.

1976, One Hit Wonders Wild Cherry started a three week run at No.1 on the US singles chart with 'Play That Funky Music'. The song started life as a B-side. It was the group's only hit in the UK which peaked at No.7.

1983, KISS appeared without their 'make-up' for the first time during an interview on MTV promoting the release of their newest album, Lick It Up.

2006, 73 year old country singer Willie Nelson and four members from his band were charged with drug possession after marijuana and magic mushrooms were found by police on his tour bus. Police had stopped the tour bus near Lafayette, Louisiana.
