The banner, which is awesome, was done by Gary Means:
- I've added about 15 new names (with another 20 still on the list
- I've written a personal thought for every person
- Each name is now hyper-linked to Wikipedia
- There is a link under most people with a song that leads to lyrics, video, photos, bio and other info
- There are youtube videos included with some of the most memorable performances
Please, please let me know if I have left someone out. And please link to me on your blog if you don't mind.
I've been in contact with several family members and friends of the some of the musicians and will let you know as they add their comments.
Let's keep the memories of these special people alive....
One final word:
Many of you know that my 18 yr. old son is a heroin addict. One of my missions in life is to shed light on how widespread and life threatening this problem is. Its very prevalent among young males and - musicians. If you glance at the sidebar of GBNF you will see how many lives we've lost....and that's of famous musicians. Its happening daily everywhere to kids like mine, like yours. Something has to be done, but I have no idea what other than getting our government to give more of a shit about illegal drugs entering our country.
