Blog News




I have updated my blog "Gone But Not Forgotten". It may not look much different at first glance but I spent hours going through and editing each person on the list to verify that the info was correct and to make each entry consistent and concise. I also added many more photos to the sidebar.

It was a bittersweet project because of the good memories combined with the sadness of loss and the tragedy of so many lives lost to drugs, alcohol and suicide.

If you look through it and notice anyone I have missed, I will try to add them. I know there are some missing.

Also, I have started a website, its under construction but the title is "Music Lives On". I plan to teach myself as I go so will be adding to it in the days, weeks, months ahead :)

I like the changes you made. Because of the amount of time I know it must take to work on this project, I know how hard it is to include everyone. Keep up the good work.

Malcolm,

Thank you so much for your encouraging words! Thanks. :)

Yes, this is really good, if a little poignant.
From my point of view, there are 2 missing that ought to be there: Ronnie Lane of the Faces and John Phillips of the Mamas and Papas. There are others (Paul Atkinson of the Zombies for example) but I can understand that a truely exhaustive list is probably a lifetime's work!
Just goes to show how many in the music industry have fallen and it is a bit eye-opening.
Great job!

Incredible page there Barbara...

I left three names over there. They are:
How about:
Ronald C. "Pigpen" McKernan (September 8, 1945 – March 8, 1973)

Toy Caldwell (13 November 1947 - 25 February 1993)

Spencer Dryden (April 7, 1938 – January 11, 2005)

Just three that popped into my mind.

Sounds like a fun new site! I just scanned the "Not Fogotten" site last week as a friend challenged me to name rock stars who died truly before their time. You were my source of record!

Music,
I will add them! WOW! It amazes me the people that slip through the cracks. THANK YOU!

Bond, never heard of those three people but will check them out!

David, that makes my day! I am thrilled GBNF was a resource for you!
