Although some parts of the world are still taking time for a proper response, establishment rock ‘n’ roll and pop figures delivered their eulogies via social media. Mick Jagger said on Twitter: “For my whole life Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II has always been there. In my childhood, I can recall watching her wedding highlights on TV. I remember her as a beautiful young lady, to the much-beloved grandmother of the nation. My deepest sympathies are with the Royal family.” The Kinks’ Dave Davies shared his feeling of disbelief: “I can’t believe this is the first time in my life that my Queen hasn’t been alive”.

Lamb Of God Drummer Says Randy Blythe Is The Greatest Frontman In Metal History

Lamb Of God drummer Art Cruz recently appeared on the "Talk Toomey" podcast. Art spoke about the band and praised the singer Randy Blythe, as can be seen in a transcript published by the Blabbermouth website. "I'm speaking as a fan too. Randy Blythe, he's the greatest frontman in heavy metal history, in my opinion - not just on a vocal level; he's more of an artist, you know what I'm saying? Metal bands need a artist and someone like that who can really take you on this adventure. So I think Randy and people like Jamey Jasta [Hatebreed] and obviously Phil Anselmo [Pantera], these are elite frontmen, in my opinion." who apparently is wearing the company shirt with great pride. https://youtu.be/dulxbKkj9Wg

Post Malone pays tribute to Pearl Jam with version of ‘Last Kiss’

Post Malone shared a snippet of a version he made for 'Last Kiss', a song popularized by Pearl Jam, on social media. This isn't the first time Post Malone has found inspiration in grunge or Pearl Jam themselves, having covered 'Better Man' during an interview with Howard Stern in June. 'Last Kiss' was released in 1961 by Wayne Cochran and was a hit in the hands of J. Frank Wilson and the Cavaliers. Younger generations will get to know them through Pearl Jam, who performed 'Last Kiss' on the album "No Boundaries", in support of the victims of the war in Kosovo. This version by Post Malone, on acoustic guitar, was performed during a concert in Rome. The rapper promises to release the full video “soon”: https://youtu.be/J1I0PfPkTYs
