    Fuck me, hairs on the back of my neck stood up during Fell On Black Days. But now there's a fucking tear with Head Down.

    "Like A Stone"

    On a cob web afternoon,
    In a room full of emptiness
    By a freeway I confess
    I was lost in the pages of a book full of death;
    Reading how we'll die alone.
    And if we're good we'll lay to rest,
    Anywhere we want to go

    First year anniversary of my dad's death on the 29th May. If you blokes don't mind I'd like to post an acoustic version of 'tears in heaven' for him. I intentionally didn't have it played at his funeral. I wanted to save it for later. He would like it better now. He always encouraged and loved me playing, writing shit songs, singing.....or anything really, sport, education, family anything... he nearly died when I was 9 in a car accident, was semi paralysed down his left side and lost an eye, stopped his footy, no more sport or manual work for him, but he never gave up and kicked on. He had to learn to talk, walk and do everything again, but he never gave up. He always drove me to get better at everything I could. Work, practice, teach, help. So I want to do this song for him here if you agree. if I get pushback and you don't want it, I'll abort, but I hope you might like it and dedicate it to your lost ones too. Yay or nay?

    Anyone else have this thing with albums:

    If I like an album on the first or second play I tend to not rate it after that. But when I hate, or at the least am disappointed with, an album on the first half dozen plays I tend to absolutely love it when it finally clicks with me?

    A pertinent example is King Animal. Thought it was just okay when it came out, wasn't disappointed as such but maybe didn't listen to it enough times for it to click. Now every time I listen to it I love it more and hear new things in it. That has nothing to do with what happened to Cornell, I could have picked it up again a year ago and got to this point.

    I've done this with so many albums over the years: TOOL-10000 Days, Machinehead-Imperium, GodSmack-IV...and the list could go on. Have come back to them a month or a year or even more down the track and they have just clicked Very Happy

    Absolutely mate. Hope it helps ease the pain as well - all the best, Rabs.

    The wife got me a new record player today so needless to say I had to go out and do some shopping! Fortunately for me living in Victoria, there is an abundance of vintage/antique stores, music shops and general hipster bullshit places to delve into! Found myself a whole bunch of vinyls at 3 for $10! Like a kid in a candy store! 

    All set up and a bit of Buddy Holly playing as we speak... Whiskey stones are cold, got a fresh bottle of single malt.. Gonna be a good night!
