Music moves our souls….(of course only for music lovers)…….Its like Solace amidst the storms, comforts when you are hurt, entertains when you are stuck in a rut…Can sweep you off your feet (if someone uses it in a apt way to make you feel, you are the One), And yes one can also experience an altogether life in a different world, where you simply get consumed! Yeah various other things that music can do apart from the above mentioned……
But what I always wondered is about the stars who with their marvelous, incredible voices have made the whole music world so damn mind blowing…..I am a music lover and yes ROCK music tops my list, followed by Industrial rock, Country, Alternative, Rhythm and blues……The bands that I adore are Iron Maiden, Aerosmith, Metallica, Pink Floyd, Audio Slaves, The Doors, Creed, Red Hot Chilli Peppers, Nirvana….and many single artists….. I feel every band has a particular style of music that defines them……I mean one can easily identify the number being played from Iron Maiden or a Pink Floyd, a Aerosmith , a Metallica and so on…..
When one thinks about especially Rock music, the first impression is “Sex, drugs and Rock n Roll”…..And its not wrong if people tend to think that way, because most of the rock stars are drug addicts and heavily into alcohol…It is their lifestyle or trend that they follow…some survive and go on to be great legends and some still go on to become great legends but don’t really survive to witness all that success…….
A few legends I think who could have made it great, but died because of OD(drug overdose) are Jim Morrison, Janice Joplin and Kurt Cobain ( he of course shot himself)……..
JIM MORRISON:- He is best known as the lead vocalist and lyricist of The Door, and is widely considered to be one of the most charismatic frontmen in the rock music history…..He died at the age 28 of a heroin overdose…..
JANICE JOPLIN:- She rose to fame in late 60s as the lead vocalist of Big Brother and then went on to be a solo artist….She ranked 46 on the list of the 100 greatest artist of all time…….She died at the age of 27 of a heroin overdose….
KURT COBAIN:- He was one of the most sort after lead vocalist, lyricist and guitarist of the famous band Nirvana….He was considered as the spokesperson of the GenX in world of the rock music……He tried to commit suicide 6 times and finally his 7th attempt took him to his heavenly abode at the age of 26…..
Well the others who survived the drug addiction and are still alive are Steven Tyler of Aerosmith and Ozzy Osbourne of Black Sabbath…..and many others……..
Only if these artist had been able to cope up with their drug addiction and thought that they were meant to live for so much more than being reduced to die of drug addiction ………
