A song I love and try to keep true to the original. It sounds like me, and definitely different. Just my singing and my guitar, nothing else. Most people do this acoustic, I did it clean channel with my Les Paul.
I wait all year to be able to play this album by Sting. As long as it’s winter, I can celebrate its beauty. I’m not really a Frosty the Snowman kind of guy.
The ocean tides and a cool breeze are all I feel in this song. That’s OK with this SoCal guy.
HEY! Sorry, just really excited. My EP is FINALLY available for purchase on Amazon.com. If you want to support my music, or just want something a la ambient/world/metal/prog rock to listen to….you should buy it. Cheers.
Paul Walker and I shared something in common, we both graduated from the same high school. It was pretty funny how all the girls would keep hoping Paul would stop by campus to speak (I can only imagine how crazy campus would’ve been if he had). You’ve left us now man, and reminded us how short life can be. I always enjoyed watching your movies, and it really is sad that we won’t see any more new things from you. RIP dude.
Just worth reading as there are so many things people are talking about. I don’t plan on talking about this much more, I’m still in a state of shock about all this honestly. Can’t imagine what these mates are feeling at the moment. My hope is that they can find peace one day, get a new singer and keep playing as a group.
“Earlier this week, we learned that the allegations of child sexual abuse against Ian were true, and that he would not be contesting them in court. Until then, we found them extremely difficult to believe and had hoped it was all a mistake. Sadly, the true extent of his appalling behaviour is now impossible to deny.
Many of you understandably want to know if we knew what Ian was doing. To be clear: We did not. We knew that Ian was a difficult character. Our personal relationships with him had deteriorated in recent years to a point that working together was a constant, miserable challenge. But despite his battles with drugs, his egotistic behaviour, and the resulting fractures and frustrations within our band, we never imagined him capable of behaviour of the type he has now admitted.
We are heartbroken, angry, and disgusted at what has been revealed. This is something that will haunt us for the rest of our lives. Being in a band has always been a labour of love and a platform to inspire people, not to take advantage of them. It’s still hard to believe this is happening and that someone we were once so close to has destroyed so many lives, lying every step of the way.
Our hearts go out to Ian’s family, the fans and friends he betrayed, and most importantly, the victims of his crimes and others like them. We hope for justice, but also that Ian will truly take responsibility for what he’s done. We would urge any other victims to contact the authorities.
Jamie, Lee, Luke, Mike and Stu”
