Il nostro riassunto della settimana, sopra e sotto i palchi
dal 9 al 15 settembre 2019
1. GLI OMAGGI A DANIEL JOHNSTON
Daniel Johnston era il “non famoso” più amato dai musicisti, citato da tantissimi colleghi come ispirazione. Molti, prevedibilmente, gli omaggi sui social dopo la scomparsa. Ne abbiamo raccolti alcuni fra i più belli:
Daniel Johnston…God rest his soul…one of the greatest natural talents we’ve ever heard. 💙https://t.co/IRyUUy4isv— Glen Hansard (@Glen_Hansard) 11 settembre 2019

All the good ones leaving us. Thanks for everything and rest easy DJ. You’ve been a constant source of joy and inspiration to us all. If anyone in this world has earned their wings it’s you xoxo . . . I shared this story last year after revisiting The Devil And Daniel Johnston and being blown away by it twice over…but the first time I saw that doc was in high school with my friend Griffin. After we left the theatre we looked up his parents phone number in the white pages and called his house in Texas and said we worked for a magazine and we had an interview with Daniel, and just like that, they put him on the phone. We spoke briefly about the Beatles and who knows what else. We simply couldn’t believe we were speaking with one of our heroes. Griffin later went on to visit Daniel and play music with him for a day. I saw him a few years later with @cassieramone in New York. I remember him up there singing with his lyric sheets and looking happy. Daniel was a spark of magic.
Daniel Johnston was one of my best teachers. I love his work and I’m so glad that it’s still here. Forever grateful to my dad for telling me about him after reading a review of the ‘Late Great Daniel Johnston’ compilation, and buying it for me. And thanks DJ for so many songs— Ezra Furman (@ezrafurman) 11 settembre 2019

Today our hearts are heavy with yesterday’s passing of Daniel Johnston. His unique songwriting voice, so pure and so direct, spoke to us deeply. It is quite safe to say there will never be another like him and thankfully, his music will play on.— Death Cab for Cutie (@dcfc) 12 settembre 2019
2. LA MORTE DI EDDIE MONEY
Non ce l’ha fatta Eddie Money, che qualche settimana fa aveva scoperto di avere un cancro all’esofago al quarto stadio. Il musicista statunitense è scomparso il 13 settembre a 70 anni.
COURTNEY LOVE VS JOSS SACKLER
Negli ultimi giorni le pagine social di Courtney Love sono diventate teatro della battaglia intrapresa dall’artista contro Purdue Pharma, l’azienda considerata responsabile della cosiddetta “crisi degli oppiacei”, in quanto produttrice del famigerato OxyContin. A scatenare la furia di Courtney Love, l’invito a una sfilata di LBV, la casa di moda di Joss Sackler, moglie di David Sackler, proprietario appunto di Purdue Pharma.

I’m putting a face on it. Here is the face of the America opioid crises – fashion edition.. @josssackler #page6 #sacklerfamily come for us. I should have asked for 250 MILLION DOLLARS A DAY .in hindsight , you were let off so easy. . I have 0 issue with my naivety about your exact role as the evil witch , of the American opioid crises, I simply thought you were some dumb ass socialite with money to burn.. why not ask for a bunch for charity? . As I told @emilypagesix the reason I didn’t take your greasy , filthy money to donate joss is because there’s no way I could have stood to be near you or your “ people” also.. is it really classy to name the people like your silly publicist that you pay? Gross . #bipartisan #opiatecrises #love #hate #godblessamerica🙏 #junkiesruineditforus #phd @nangoldinstudio
3. IL CONCERTO CANCELLATO DEI KISS
“Chiediamo scusa ai fan di Salt Lake City”, scrive Gene Simmons su Twitter annunciando la cancellazione della prevista data dei Kiss per motivi di salute: “La verità è che sono dovuto volare a Los Angeles per una questione medica. Niente di grave. Ma dovevo farlo adesso. Grazie per gli auguri. Va tutto bene”.
Apologies to the fans in Salt Lake City. We will come back and do the show at a later date. The truth is, I have to fly to LA to do a medical procedure. Nothing serious. But it must be taken care of now. Thank you for your good wishes. All is well. 😊— Gene Simmons (@genesimmons) 13 settembre 2019
4. LA NONNINA METALLARA
La prossima volta che voi o un vostro amico direte o penserete “non ho più l’età”, guardate il video di questa adorabile vecchietta al concerto degli Slipknot e andate a quella serata per la quale credete di essere troppo anziani.
