"Bloodbath In Paradise" Ozzy
"Mind Rape" Death Angel
"Night Prowler" AC/DC
Before 2017 slips away I wanna take this time to give a nod to those who had passed in the recent year. Of the many, two are the most stand out ish - one was a Rock Legend, the other was the very definition of a skum-bag!
Malcolm Young, who along with his younger brother Angus co-founded the legendary rock group
in 1973 which went on to have a string of hit songs and platinum albums like Dirty Deeds, Long Way To The Top, TNT, Highway to Hell (which was written as a poke at Led Zepplin's "Stairway To Heaven"), Back in Black, For Those About To Rock etc. His band was not immune to controversy, as songs like Highway ..., Night Prowler & Snowblind were denounced as promoting Satanism, drug abuse and violence (Richard Ramerez claimed the music of the band inspired his misdeeds). That was gonna happen anyway. Malcolm was 64 at his passing.
Hippy cult leader turned murdering mastermind Charles Miles Manson passed away in Nov. 19 still showing NO remorse or contrition or even "recognizing" his guilt for the murders he ordered his family to commit back in 1969. He was org. sentenced to death along with his followers for the murders but was spared when the Death Penalty was temp. abolished back in the 70's. Over the years he became the very definition of evil and unsocial behavior/personality. If he had any redeeming qualities at all, it was that his parole hearings and interviews were ... hilarious in their shear um - disconnectedness to reality. Of course, I am NOT shedding any
for the murdering mastermind! Instead, remember the victims - Sharon Tate, Abigail Folger & The LaBianca Family amoung others.
