I think this goes in here.

Edwin Starr, famous for "War" passed away in Nottingham, England yesterday. Interesting that he died while there was a war going on.

Bummer.

I just hope that [insert muscians name here] does not attempt to "cover" the song...even though the timing appears to be as right as it ever will be. Starr's vocals MADE that song, so it would be nice if "WAR" is left well enough alone.

and while I'm wishing for things, if the Torch uses "friend only to the Undertaker" as an "Obscure Wrestling Reference", well...

Agreed on the lack of need for a cover, though the timing IS debatable. I did, however, see Springsteen do an AWESOME cover of the song at his L.A. Colisseum concert back in '85. (Why yes, I WAS 11 years old...it was my first concert.) So, if anyone was going to cover it, I guess Bruce would be OK with me.

Still, too much sad news goin' on.

Pearl Jam has been using it as a Daughter tag since last year. Something for the crowd to sing to, pretty much.

Schippewreck, I'd like to take this time out to condemn you for abusing Spiderman in your avatar. You may now resume normal grieving of a man who made quite possibly the most kickass anti war song ever. thank you.

Would it be OK if I said that was Ben Reilly?

If opposing this war didn't cause instant "controversy" among the unwashed masses, I'd be predicting an awful Smash Mouth cover any day now.



"It's just like the story of the grasshopper and the octopus. All year long, the grasshopper kept burying acorns for the winter, while the octopus mooched off his girlfriend and watched TV. But then the winter came, and the grasshopper died, and the octopus ate all his acorns. And also he got a racecar. Is any of this getting through to you?"

I actually thought Barry McGuire'a 'Eve Of Destruction' was a better anti-war song, but that's just me.

Edwin Starr's 'Stop the War Now' and 'Way Over There' were actually better songs, but didn't get much (if at all) air play.
