Varg is a guitarist from a Norwegian black metal band who has earned fame more from the murder allegations rather than his own music. Before we dive into the depths of those allegations, let’s shed some light on the band itself.

Rare Blues 78 Who is Pinewood Tom?

EddieVinyl Records

I picked up couple of boxes of 78s from a moving sale several years ago. I’m not really a Rare Blues 78 RPM record collector so they went back on a shelf in my area down stairs where I do all my secret record work. Several years passed until a local record fiend like my self was over looking through a batch of 45s that I had recently gotten in. He looked through the 78s and pulled out two that were on the same label by the same artist in excellent condition with the original Melotone sleeve. The artist was Pinewood Tom and they were blues titles like; Bed Springs Blues, Tweet Tweet Mama Blues, Sissy Man and Cherry Picker. When I saw that they were blues titles and a name like Pinewood Tom it peeked my interest so I looked them up and saw they were quite desirable.

These are the lyrics from  one song; Are You Dead

Watch me as I die, I’m already Broken. I keep asking why my emotions are fading slowly. Evil in mind, I can feel it has changed me. Whisper words of lies, thoughts are speaking evil to me. If we’re getting back together, then I need you, I need you to get better.If your dead inside, there is no life for you and I. Are you getting past your sorrow? Are you dead? Are we one? Nothings easy. Where do we belong? Are you dead? Or are we one? Are you dead? Are you dead?

Vinyl Hitch Hikers

I was looking through a few records I had picked up the other day. There were a few nice ones I was very happy to get, some good ones that turned out to be scratched to hell and some run of the mill stuff. I picked up another vinyl LP from the stack. It was The Talking Heads. I full the vinyl out to see it was in decent shape and still had the original inner sleeve intact.

EddieMusic & Bands

As much as we envy rock stars, try to mold our personalities into theirs and wish to live the life they life, there are elements to their lives and personalities that make living sober, if not just living itself, all together a challenge. According to the disturbing findings of a new study, musicians tend to live up to 25 years less on average than the rest of us because they have much higher rates of death by accident, suicide and homicide. These findings came across after the life histories of more than 12,000 musicians across all popular genres, who died between 1950 and 2014, were examined.
