Stevie Ray Vaughn and Mozart share some eerie parallels.No doubt ... when he died it hit me nearly as hard as John Lennon.
Stevie transcended music with the vibe at his shows.... not what I for one expected from the style of his tunes. His career was just beginning to really roll when he was taken.
Brings a tear to my eye even today.
The last time that Haydn saw Mozart was right before Haydn left for London in December 1790, almost exactly a year before Mozart’s untimely death. According to Haydn’s biographer, to whom Haydn recounted the details of their final meeting some 15 years later, Mozart spent the whole of Haydn’s last day in Vienna. Here’s his rather breathlessly dramatic retelling of events:
[Mozart] dined with him, and said at the moment of parting, “We are probably saying our last farewell in this life.” Tears welled from the eyes of both. Haydn was deeply moved, for he applied Mozart’s words to himself, and the possibility never occurred to him that the thread of Mozart’s life could be cut off… within the following year.
When Mozart died at thirty-five, Haydn was distraught. Some time later, he wrote: “I was for some time quite beside myself over his death. I cannot believe that Providence should so quickly have called an irreplaceable man into the next world.”
Haydn eulogized Mozart, saying: “Posterity will not see such a talent again in 100 years.”
With the benefit of more than two centuries of hindsight, few would argue with Haydn’s assessment of his young friend’s remarkable talents.
I have one of the new Epiphone "Inspired by Gibson" J-200s on order too...been backordered since Dec 12th The Gibson model has been a dream of mine since I was about that age, but I could never afford $4500 for a guitar. The new Epiphone line is pretty damned close and under $900. So...still no pianosYou also bought guitars intead of pianos.

With Mitsuda, if there's a mood you need, he knows how to make it. He's also very good at integrating numerous styles into his music. Peaceful Days is almost Mozart-like, but music like the Ocean Palace or something far more modern.So glad you posted this. I go through periods where I do Video Game music almost exclusively for a while. It always starts with Chrono Trigger, then Metal Gear Solid, and goes from there.
Their cover of 'Forty Six & 2' is awesome.ALL the kids from O'Keefe Music Foundation. Any of their covers. Tool, Ozzy, all hard rock.
Heres one example:

Hah, thanks . Two vivid things I remember from my lessons with him:That is freaking awesome and a great video. I've never heard of him, but he is an amazing bassist. That is way cool that he sold you his touring bass!
