Music has always been a part of my life -- now welcome to the journey. Just a little blog to reminisce, review, rant and rave about the music in my life. "Music is my mother and my father. It is my work and my rest,my blood, my compass, my love" ~Jeff Buckley

Ain't No Sense In All Your Crying - Michael Hutchence
But you tore a hole in space
Like a dark star, falls from grace
You burn across the sky
And I would find you wings to fly
And I would catch you
I would catch your fall
was a rough year for celebrity ... Jeff Buckley, Princess Diana, and our
shining star, Michael Hutchence. Almost twenty years on, we still awe at his
wonder and talent. We're sad by his early and public demise. His daughter,
Tigerlilly, has grown into a philanthropic young woman that he would be so
proud of. The band, while still popular in memory, is struggling to have life
after Hutch. He was more than the glue that kept the band together. He

voice will be forever golden.
