R.I.P. Dusty Hill (ZZ Top)

ZZ Top bassist Dusty Hill has died aged 72.

The ‘Gimme All Your Lovin’ hitmaker was forced to pull out of a number of shows across the US just weeks ago after suffering an injury to his hip, and on Wednesday (28.07.21) it was confirmed Dusty had passed away in his sleep at his home in Houston, Texas.

Bandmates Billy Gibbons and Frank Beard confirmed the sad news in a statement which read: "We are saddened by the news today that our Compadre, Dusty Hill, has passed away in his sleep at home in Houston, TX.

"We, along with legions of ZZ Top fans around the world, will miss your steadfast presence, your good nature and enduring commitment to providing that monumental bottom to the ‘Top'.

“...I chatted to Danny Boyle and went down to one filming session and met the cast. Originally there was another guy meant to play me, but he left to join Game of Thrones and [Christian Lees] took over who’s really good and a musician – he portrayed the young Jerry Lee Lewis in the Sun Records biopic series, where he actually played the keyboards. He sent me a link of him playing at the wrap party, where he’s even putting his feet on the piano like Jerry Lee did. Danny Boyle’s a cool talent, so we’ll see what happens.”

It’s split the Sex Pistols, with frontman John Lydon calling the TV series “the most disrespectful shit”, and an ongoing court case over whether the music can be used…

“I don’t want to get involved in all that!”

Glen's a bit wiser here.  8)

So far my friends/relatives in these regions have let it be known they're okay

Steffi (veteran of many TV gigs incl. Earthbound in Essen) has also informed that she's safe.

Indeed it looks serious/shocking/sad when you see footage of houses flooded (or even breaking down)...  :(

So far my friends/relatives in these regions have let it be known they're okay (e.g. Flaus, who I met at TV & Garden Gang gigs).

In the town where I live, there is no river, it is a "karst" landscape where water oozes away (unless it's so much the ground take it any more). Of course, below our high plain, now the sources/springs are shooting out lots of water (floodings possible, but so far we were lucky).

TV on FB:
After yesterday's news that UK residents are allowed to travel to Germany again...I think I can finally announce this tour with some real hope that it will happen. Ich freue mich sehr, für meine Freunde in Deutschland wieder zu spielen!

I always though that the Worlds End was also in Fulham.

From what I can tell, there used to be several "Worlds End" pubs in London.

Well, wherever you are in the city, just ask yourself how many times you've come across a 'World’s End'. It's found on pub and street signs, and even in business names.

But rather than referring to anything apocalyptic, the phrase is actually just a common place name which suggests a boundary of some sort.

But nowhere has embraced the moniker quite like Chelsea. The World's End pub here (which still exists, under a slightly different guise) dates back perhaps as far as the 17th century and, customarily, got its name because it was a traveller's last place of refreshment for some time.

And now, the name is unavoidable in the area. Among other things, it’s enshrined in a Vivienne Westwood boutique on the King's Road, in a forebodingly-named health centre, and even in a council estate.

#LetTheMusicMove invites all artists, music professionals and fans to call on the UK government to do more to support the future of the music industry, and mitigate the Brexit-related impacts of restrictions, costs and delays on European touring.
