"Walk Through This World With Me" always makes me think of the wonderful Ms. Cantrell

when my grampa wasn't allowed to drive anymore back in the 60's he'd take his john deere m to the store for a big bottle of ancient age beer. no stopping the pull of lady liquor
Avatar Tue. 4/30/13 6:12pm Droll:

For many musician celebrities it's similar to lotter winners -- they're not prepared for the money (problems and privileges) and they blow it on sex and drugs and cars and soon it's all gone.
Many lottery winners go broke, many celebrities are ruined by their fame and fortune.

oops, my bad - ancient age was bourbon. i think he probably just picked up a big genny cream. it was a general store and they didn't have the hard stuff

Still having a tough time separating the man from the artist. John Lennon was a big musical influence in my life, but man, was he screwed up.
  Tue. 4/30/13 6:15pm Dan Carlos:

Roky Erickson!

(That's a link to Wikipedia article on Ancient Age bourbon - with a nice picture of the bottle)

And a review: www.whiskycritic.com...

Jack Kerouac. Watching him slowly succumb to alcohol was so sad.

i had a bunch of late 60's early 70s jim beam decanters i collected that were still sealed. i read that they sell/ship easier empty so we cracked them open and my wife drank it all last year - it was 100 months old in 1970, so 50 year old bourbon. she said it was the best bourbon she ever drank
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 4/30/13 6:19pm Mike East:

can you say asshole on the radio?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 4/30/13 6:21pm Ken From Hyde Park:

I liked Stevie Ray Vaughn and also Johnny Cash.
Avatar Tue. 4/30/13 6:21pm Green Mountain Man Mark:

HST did beat his wife, and was a real asshole to many and all, but was an artful asshole. His stories from him hanging out with the Hells Angels is hilarious and terrifying. And his time in Vietnam as a reporter.
Avatar Tue. 4/30/13 6:21pm Danne D:

Can't have this list w/o mentioning Buddy Rich can we?
  Tue. 4/30/13 6:22pm Ono:

Primal scream
Avatar Tue. 4/30/13 6:22pm Danne D:

And of course Phil Ochs is a sad classic story :(
  Tue. 4/30/13 6:22pm dale:

think that story was in the harry nillson everybody's talking movie.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 4/30/13 6:23pm Mike East:

William Burroughs
  Tue. 4/30/13 6:25pm cavorting with nudists:

Sam Peckinpah.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 4/30/13 6:26pm George of Troy:

Syd Barrett, Nick Drake and Tim Hardin all come to mind.
  Tue. 4/30/13 6:27pm dale:

they weren't damaged, they were outlaws - there's a difference
Avatar Tue. 4/30/13 6:28pm Danne D:

Not music, but I can't say I'm as much of a Dennis Miller fan as I was back in, say, my college days.
  Tue. 4/30/13 6:29pm cavorting with nudists:

I don't give a damn about Woody Allen--for reasons that predate Soon-Yi-- but I don't know how damaged he was. Seems more like a damage-doing guy.
  Tue. 4/30/13 6:30pm kw:

David Foster Wallace
  Tue. 4/30/13 6:30pm Raj:

Townes Van Zandt. No memory of his childhood after shock treatment! But even that did not slow him down much. R.I.P.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 4/30/13 6:31pm Folsom:

GG Allin
  Tue. 4/30/13 6:32pm Ono:

Was GG really an artist?

i thought he meant harry s truman

wow...censorship is kinda ridiculous.

Personal statement:

I like to comment. A lot.
  Tue. 4/30/13 6:34pm airsatz:

Anybody bring up Ian Curtis?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 4/30/13 6:34pm Mike East:

I think that doc is called "Who is Harry Nilsson (and why is everybody Talking about Him)?"
Worth watching.
  Tue. 4/30/13 6:35pm airsatz:

2nd Townes VZ, he takes a cake
  Swag For Life Member Tue. 4/30/13 6:35pm Ralphine:

David Foster Wallace's use of footnotes and endnotes is a gimmick I can do without.
Avatar Tue. 4/30/13 6:38pm Green Mountain Man Mark:

I had a lazy moment at the store yesterday. I had pasta and meatballs for our dinner menu. I needed some Italian bread to make garlic bread slices and noticed they had both sliced and unsliced loaves. I grabbed a sliced loaf and thought to myself "this is great." I did not, however, think that this was the greatest thing, though.
  Tue. 4/30/13 6:39pm Marmalade Kitty:

Gary Glitter!
  Tue. 4/30/13 6:39pm DPCD:

Miles Davis, Kurt Cobain, etc... Too easy!
How about most of us with a strict (read extremist) religious upbringing?
I'd give anything to write as well as DF Wallace, by the way!
  Tue. 4/30/13 6:39pm dale:

monica - look for the movie 'DIG' re: brian jonestown vs. dandy warhols
  Tue. 4/30/13 6:41pm Ono:

The Mountain Man needs more damage
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 4/30/13 6:46pm Greg from Bloomfield:

I had no idea how damaged Joe Strummer was until I read "Redemption Song", but it just made me love him more. Also, Phil Spector.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 4/30/13 6:51pm Greg from Bloomfield:

Oh duh! And Polanski. Good call, Chris.
  Tue. 4/30/13 6:52pm dale:

saw tammy at the bottom line. one of the best shows i ever saw, three feet away from her, costume changes, drag queens in the audience and good food.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 4/30/13 6:52pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Another guy for the "Too Easy" list - John "Ozzie" Osbourne. Have any ladies been mentioned yet?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 4/30/13 6:53pm Mike East:

the classic damaged woman is Silvia Plath, right?
Avatar Tue. 4/30/13 6:53pm Danne D:

Jonesy to SUW to Aerial View, reasonable progression
  Tue. 4/30/13 6:55pm cavorting with nudists:

Don't read this on the air, Chris, but I can't listen to Irwin anymore knowing his sheer political assholery. It's rough sometimes because I used to really enjoy the Old Codger.

madman should have a sidekick, like a chimp or something

the best zappa tune is dancin' fool.
Avatar Tue. 4/30/13 6:57pm Danne D:

I think he'd be the perfect guest DJ to do a spot with Clay Pigeon.
Avatar Tue. 4/30/13 6:58pm Green Mountain Man Mark:

Funny how many people don't get freeform and listen to wfmu and think wfmu is doing it all wrong.
  Tue. 4/30/13 6:58pm Ono:

After a couple of Zimas
Avatar Tue. 4/30/13 6:59pm Danne D:

Freeform is about taking unexpected turns. Like this call :)
Avatar Tue. 4/30/13 7:00pm Danne D:

@Chris not sure that ID made it through clear.
