George Harrison (25th February 1943 – 29th November 2001)

George Harrison (25th February 1943 – 29th November 2001)

On the 29th November 2001, George Harrison died at the age of 58 years of lung cancer. The Beatles guitarist passed away in Los Angeles. Born on the 25th February 1943 in Liverpool, the very young Harrision joined at the age of 15 a band called The Quarrymen in 1958, which became in 1960 The Beatles. Beside the many hits, which were composed mainly by John Lennon und Paul McCartney, also George Harrision wrote some classics like „While My Guitar Gently Weeps“ (1968), „Here Comes the Sun“ and „Something“ (both 1969). After the break-up in 1970, George Harrison concentrated more on his solo career. After his two albums „Wonderwall Music“ (1968) and „Electronic Sound “ (1969) his third effort „All Things must Pass“ (3-LP-Set) marked his first solo work after the official end of The Beatles. This triple set features also the hit „My Sweet Lord“ (released in November 1970). In 1971 George Harrison organised the charity event „Concert for Bangladesh„, which took place on the 1st August 1971 at the Madison Square Garden in New York. Beside his music career, George Harrison worked also as a film producer. In 1978 he co-founded „HandMade Films„, which produced the classic „Monty Pyhton’s Life of Brian“ (1979).


In 2011, the documentary „George Harrison: Living in the Material World“ by film director Martin Scorsese war released, which earned six nominations at the 64th Primetime Emmy Awards and winning two Emmy Awards for „Outstanding Nonfiction Special“ and „Outstanding Directing for Nonfiction Programming“.

Music Diary – 12th September

Welcome to my Music Diary – today for the 12th September!

 Johnny Cash (26th February 1932 – 12th September 2003)

Johnny Cash (26th February 1932 – 12th September 2003)

The 12th September 2003 is one of the saddest days in music history: The Man in BlackJohn R. „Johnny“ Cash, died at the age of 71 years in Nashville, Tennessee.

Cash was well known as the outstanding Country musician, but he was quite more than this. He knew no borders and especially his last albums, the legendary „American Recordings„, which were produced by Rick Rubin, prove that.


Beside his many hits like „Ring of Fire“ (which was written by his later wife June Carter), „I walk the Line„, „Folsom Prison Blues“ or “ A Boy named Sue“ the two jailhouse recordings „At Folsom Prison“ (1968) and „At San Quentin“ (1969) are still classics and timeless albums.

In 2004/2005 James Mangold directed the biographical film „Walk the Line“ based on the early life and career of Johnny Cash with Joaquin Phoenix as Johnny Cash and Reese Witherspoon as June Carter Cash.

On the 9th March 1991, the British Punk band The Clash had their only No.1 single in the UK with the reissue of „Should I Stay Or Should I Go„. Due to the Levi’s television ad, the song became a huge hit.

The song was written in 1981 and originally released in 1982 on the LP „Combat Rock„. The lead vocals were sung by Mick Jones, while the Spanish backing vocals were sung by Joe Strummer and Joe Ely.

Music Diary – 19th August

Welcome to another entry in my personal music diary!

Back in 2004 I bought a very interesting benefit sampler called „Free The West Memphis 3„.

freewestBands and musicians like Tom Waits, Steve Earle, Supersuckers, Joe Strummer, Eddie Vedder, Mark Lanegan or Nashville Pussy contributed for this release.

About the story (from wikipedia):
The West Memphis Three are three men who were tried and convicted as teenagers in 1994 of the 1993 murders of three boys in West Memphis, Arkansas. Damien Echols was sentenced to death, Jessie Misskelley, Jr. was sentenced to life imprisonment plus two 20-year sentences, and Jason Baldwin was sentenced to life imprisonment. During the trial, the prosecution asserted that the children were killed as part of a Satanic ritual. A number of documentaries have been based on the case, and celebrities and musicians have held fund raisers in the belief that they are innocent. (continue reading here)

THE WALKABOUTS – Ebensee (Kino)
Support by Terri Tarantula aka Terri Moeller

My second time seeing this amazing band from the US – The Walkabouts! Although frontman Chris Eckman is now living in Slovenia the sound didn’t change at all. With the new songs from the amazing album “Travels in the Dustland” this outstanding band proved their unique style in Ebensee at the Kino. Drummer Terri Moeller aka Terri Tarantula did the support during that tour and so the shows started very sweet and soft before The Walkabouts (Chris Eckman, Carla Torgerson, Terri Moeller, Michael Wells, Glenn Slater and Paul Austin) rocked with full force (as you can see on the videos below – all recorded by long time fan Walter Horn) ;-)

SLIM CESSNA’S AUTO CLUB – Innsbruck (Treibhaus – Small Hall)

The Auto Club played the second time at the Treibhaus in Innsbruck (The Tyrol). After their live debut back in 2009, when they played the big hall in front of a handful people, they played the small hall this time. And luckily many more people found their way this time to the Treibhaus. Slim Cessna’s Auto Club (Slim Cessna, Munly Munly, Daniel “Danny Pants” Grandbois, Todd “The Peeler” Moore, Lord Dwight Pentacost and Bob “Big Bad Bob” Ferbrache) did an amazing performance again and introduced us to the brandnew songs of „Unentitled„.

The White Birch (Ola Fløttum, Hans Christian Almendingen, Ulf Rogde with Linda Wietfeldt) from Norway played that night at the Kino in Ebensee (Upper Austria).  It was the perfect soundtrack (mostly songs from the current release „Come Up For Air„) to the winter landscape outside.

THE GUTTER TWINS – Vienna (WUK)

This show was billed as “An Evening with Mark Lanegan & Greg Dulli”, but they also perform as The Gutter Twins. It was forbidden to take pictures at the WUK – even some security guys were checking the audience the whole show! Very strange but anyway – great acoustic performance by the frontmen of The Screaming Trees and The Afghan Whigs! After the show I bought myself a shirt and a signed poster. During my shopping someone said to me that he also wanted the shirt I was wearing. Well, it was an original Afghan Whigs shirt which I bought back in 1999 and I will NOT sell it 😉

The Setlist:

The Body
God’s Children/All along the Watchtower
The Stations
We have met before
Creeping Coastline of Lights
