Sonic Overload 2/3/14

I’m really sick of judgmental people (I’d say assholes but I’m trying to take a high road—yeah right) who say that someone dying of a drug overdose is some sort of junkie loser. I’m referring to the death of the actor Philip Seymour Hoffman, who died over the weekend at the way-too-young age of 46. One of the most talented actors of his generation, in fact—not a leading man but a master character actor. I have my say about it towards the end of the show. I won’t pretend I know why people do that, what necessarily causes it but I think showing empathy, instead of scorn, is a better way to go. It’s hard to be that way, of course.

I start off with a few songs about Sid Vicious. Not sure I’d call it a tribute but more of a marking of 35 years since his death. Finally, I do pay tribute to Buddy Holly, Ritchie Valens and JP “The Big Bopper” Richardson, who were all killed in a plane crash in Iowa 55 years ago today—“The day the music died,” as Don McLean sang on “American Pie.” I thought about playing Killdozer’s nearly 9 minute cover of that song but the show’s long enough as it is—almost 10 minutes of bonus Sonic Overload, in fact. Not that I have any sort of time limit. Anyway, the tribute includes covers of their songs, a few of them rather, uh, interesting...
