I always say I don’t have any regrets. That’s a lie. I do have one and I blame my parents for it.
Had they not been so selfish, they would have married ages ago. I wouldn’t have been born so late, missing out all the fun in the best eras ( the 80’s and the 90’s). I was born in 1993, but had I been born sooner, I would have had at least half the chance of meeting some crazy-ass, amazing people.
Or even those born later. Forgive me, I’m just pissed they are all dead now.
I didn’t even know he existed, until I clicked on his picture while researching about famous schizophrenics. Most people don’t even know how crucial a part of Pink Floyd he was, because all people listen to are the songs after he left the band. Let me tell you: He was Pink Floyd. He came up with the name, for starters, and the psychedelic effect that Pink Floyd was all about, was actually his creation. He was an amazing musician, who was graciously gifted with a strong stage presence. It’s a pity how it all ended. A lot of people claim that he went cuckoo because of his addiction to LSD. Or developed schizophrenia. Or was autistic. It’s difficult to say because he was always very cynical and odd-humored from the rest. Whether his erratic behavior was due to a mental disease or an effect of some drug, there’s no doubt that he was an absolute fucking genius.
Amazing, amazing musician. I have absolutely no words to describe him because I have never seen a man playing the guitar with his mouth. We are told not to use the word god to describe a human being but I’m going to be a rebel and say it out loud: He was a guitar GOD!
He was born Faroukh Bualsara. He was a Parsi. DID YOU KNOW?!
The first time I heard of him was not as a member of Queen but because someone had compared him to Adam Lambert. I had to see who this guy was. As much as I have seen and heard, he is brilliant. I have never seen him live, but if there’s one thing I know, it’s this: If he was even half as entertaining as Adam is on stage, teasing the audience, keeping them engaged throughout, I have missed out big time!
I first read about him in a magazine, that covered his failed suicide attempt because the gun hadn’t gone off. His father had verbally abused him, he was overweight and an addict. Which made him want to take his life. Which he almost did. After that attempt didn’t go as planned, he cleaned up his act and attended AA meetings. He was sober for a while but it was during he started shooting for Gone Too Far, a show where he staged interventions for addicts, that he started using again. He died days later, due to an overdose. I was so mad. I couldn’t believe it. He was an exceptionally talented man and would have made a good career had it not been for the unfortunate circumstances.
I don’t even need to explain why I wanted to meet her. I’m obsessed!
Who are some of the dead celebs you’d like to meet? Do you know any of these people, except of course lady Di?
