My love for Mark Lanegan began back around 1992, one night in the Coventry University Student Union, when I heard "Nearly Lost You" for the first time. You couldn't help but be drawn in by that voice.
Of course there's that voice, but he also brought an emotion, dignity, and heart to everything he did. One of the great musicians of the last 30 years.
RIP Mark x
Today, listen to "Hunky Dory" and "The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars"
Tonight, watch "Labyrinth" and "The Man Who Fell To Earth".
We don't always get the kind of work we want, but we always have a choice of whether to do it with good grace or not.
If one meets a powerful person -- Rupert Murdoch, perhaps, or Joe Stalin or Hitler -- one can ask five questions:
- What power do you have?
- Where did you get it?
- In whose interests do you exercise it?
- To whom are you accountable?
- And, how can we get rid of you?
