LGBT People Pay Tribute to The Cranberries' Delores O'Riordan
LGBT people are paying tribute today to The Cranberries lead singer Dolores O'Riordan, who has died at age 46.
The Irish band broke through in the ‘90s with “Linger” and then became the music of many young people. Although O'Riordan was straight, her music inspired LGBT people. Queer singer Lane Moore, of the band It Was Romance, put it clearly, writing on Twitter that “Her music helped me not die when I thought life would kill me.”
Bono Reveals What He Learned from 'Almost Dying' – and Says 'Music Has Gotten Very Girly'
Bono admits he had previously thought he’d “let go” of his fear of death, but reveals it was the exact opposite.
“I thought I already had, but this was the next installment in trust. You know, people of faith can be very annoying,” he said. “Like when people on the Grammys thank God for a song and you think, “God, that is a shite song. Don’t give God credit for that one – you should take it yourself!” I am sure I have done that myself. And someone’s like, “I got this directly from the mouth of God!” And you’re thinking, “Wow, God has no taste!”
Without LGBTQ People, Modern Music Wouldn't Exist
VICE: What initially made you decide to write this book?
Darryl W. Bullock: I wanted to write a book about LGBTQ people making records, but to be honest, it was a bit dull. It was starting to look a bit like an encyclopedia, an A-to-Z of gay musicians. Then, maybe three or four months into the project, David Bowie died, and his death struck me really viscerally.
But it was while I saw how others reacted to his death, especially the stars I grew up with—the Boy Georges and the George Michaels and the Madonnas—that I realized I was going down the wrong track. I realized the book shouldn’t just be about LGBTQ people making records, but how they influenced each generation that followed. You start to build up this timeline, and it stretches back over 100 years, almost back to the birth of commercially available discs.
It was also a definite decision to include voices you don’t hear of. It would be easy to write a book just about Elton John, George Michael, Boy George, Freddie Mercury, those kinds of people. But I really wanted to document the lives of people like Patrick Haggerty, Blackberri and John “Smokey” Condon (pic above), people who have made incredibly important contributions to music and to LGBTQ lives but have been basically ignored by the mainstream media.
Fats Domino, Architect Of Rock 'N' Roll, Dead At 89
Fats Domino, one of the architects of rock 'n' roll, died Tuesday at his daughter's suburban New Orleans home. Haydee Ellis, a family friend, confirmed the news to NPR. Mark Bone, chief investigator for the Jefferson Parish coroner's office, tells NPR that Domino, who was 89, died of natural causes.
In the 1940s, Antoine Domino Jr. was working at a mattress factory in New Orleans and playing piano at night. Both his waistline and his fan base were expanding. That's when a bandleader began calling him "Fats." From there, it was a cakewalk to his first million-selling record — "The Fat Man." It was Domino's first release for Imperial Records, which signed him right off the bandstand.
Chester Bennington, Linkin Park Frontman, Dead At 41
Law enforcement officials told TMZ that the singer was found in his home in Palos Verdes Estates in L.A. County on Thursday morning. The Los Angeles Coroner spokesman Brian Elias told The Associated Press that authorities are investigating Bennington’s death as an apparent suicide, but no additional details are available.
Bennington had struggled with drug use in the past, and, according to TMZ, had spoken about taking his own life after being a victim of child abuse. The singer opened up about his experience with drugs in a 2016 interview with TeamRock.com, saying, at one point, he was “on 11 hits of acid a day.”
