    holy shit... Steve Albini was a legend. I didn't always agree with his perspectives and philosophies regarding production, but I always respected his opinions, and considered everything he had to say to be at the very least educational. He was a unique pioneer, and he was never afraid to go against the grain. Albini was always the opposite of "selling out," and is one of the clearest examples of a musical creator who stuck to his principles and ideas and didn't compromise them. Everyone in the music production world revered him (or is an idiot).

    This is a sad day.

    Truly a legend. Respect to him for forging his own path and encouraging others to do the same.

    Obviously everyone will mention his work on In Utero (rightly so), but just looking at all the bands he crossed paths with over the years is pretty astounding. The records he did with Low are some of my absolute favorites.

    Well said. I caught an interview with him recently and was pleasantly surprised to learn he was actually more flexible in his thinking on production. He had good things to say about Butch Vig, for example. Seems he did really stick to his philosophy but that he also didn't want or expect everyone else to fall in line and do the exact same thing.

    Also, I mean dude is forever a fucking legend.

    Surprised no one has mentioned Roger Corman yet. The king of the B movies who launched the careers of many actors and filmmakers passed Thursday at 98!

    Richard M Sherman, the composer who wrote the music for a bunch of Disney properties (including Mary Poppins and The Jungle Book).

    I'm sure Ozzy is upset... apparently that was his pre-show warmup; he "needed his Poppins" before he could go on stage.

    RIP Wampler. https://www.thewrap.com/scott-wample...kingcast-dies/

    He was a great follow when Twitter was halfway good. And of course he was one of us.

    He was one of the funniest people on that platform. His podcasts were great as well. He is really going to be missed.

    I met him at the Vegas NIN show in ‘22 and he was kind and excited about getting to go backstage. He was hoping to see the “Fashion” cover played live and I really wanted to see “And All That Could Have Been.”

    I reached out after to say we both got our wishes and it was nice to meet him and he responded in kind.

    He was funny too. I was a KINGCAST fan and looked forward to his Hellraiser podcast. This is very sad. I know he was having a rough time. Goddammit.

    RIP Wampler.

    Also, this hurts as well.

    I didn't know that he was sick. I always enjoyed his commentaries.

    RIP to the Say Hey Kid, Willie Mays. One of the greatest (maybe even THE greatest) baseball players of all time.

    Awww man, I love Donald Sutherland. The ending of Invasion of the Body Snatchers is one of the most chilling things I’ve ever seen on screen.

    Donald Sutherland was never the traditional leading man, but, he sure stole the scenes he was in it: Be it his butt cheeks in Animal House or his chilling portrayal of a pyromaniac in Backdraft. RIP to a damn fine actor.

    Not surprising, but Seth Binzer of Crazy Town died at age 49.

    yup, reading the reddit thread on it. Says an article from 2022 shows that at least 10 celebrities who were on Celebrity Rehab have died since and almost all were overdose or complications from past use.

    What's more surprising than Shifty actually dying, is the amount of attention that he's getting from it. Suddenly all the music websites acting like Crazy Town were a legendary band or some shit, ignoring the fact that like, what was it, last year (?) that there was that video of Shifty and the other guy from Crazy Town beating each other up backstage at a shitty State Fair while calling each other the 'N' word and the guy from Orgy just sits there like it's a totally normally thing to happen.

    i donít think itís that anyone thinks theyíre a great band. itís that theyíre culturally relevant. everyone knows the song.
