I was just leafing through the archives here at DeeBeeUs™ World Headquarters and found my old Rock N Roll Relics Style 3 Jazzmaster replica heavy relic. I sold this one last year to pay for my ongoing addiction to buying guitars I can’t afford. Apologies for the Buzzstop - I was young and naive and didn’t know about Mastery bridged at the time… :D
cerealkyler#JohnnyDepp sits in front of the late #Lemmy’s bass rig, jacket (hanging on the right of the amp) and his boots (bottom right). The rig was at#HollywoodVampires rehearsal for their Grammy’s performance. Standing next to such energy was a special moment for everyone, myself included. We all sort of took turns inspecting these rock n roll relics. Also on hand was his much loved#Rickenbacker#bass, which is directly behind Johnny in this photo and hidden from view.
Song: Melanie Doane’s “Good Gifts”. I think this song is about finding the right person to love…and being thankful for those “gifts”. Lyrically it’s seems to be non-melancholic, but I can’t help getting all choked up when I hear it anyway!
The there is a phrase in the latter part of the song that is simple, but so powerful. It’s on th eword “me” of the phrase "I will not forget/these gifts to me" at roughly 2:44. Aw jeez…here come the waterworks again! Damn you Melanie! But you are so talented and gorgeous that I forgive you! :D
I know this is not melancholy…but it’s my favourite song of hers. She plays the fiddle in this tune as well as singing. Think of this a me giving you a bonus for reading this far down… :D
