Tbh, I read the section on Wiki and I think their exclusion was fair. In order to be inducted as a member of a band or group, the criteria is 1) original member, 2) current member, or 3) performed on multiple albums. He was none of those. Just seems bitter and tedious that he hit out at it.

 

Indeed and his other band members didn't seem to care at the time....

 

Now touting him as an 'essential but forgotten member' cos he's snuffed it......

 

He was a bit part player in the long history of the band, it'd be nice if bands could just be honest about this stuff.

 

'The random part time replacement for our bezza mate 40 years ago has snuffed, he was a decent bloke but the band would have survived without him'

 

rather than touting him as essential.

But it was the song of my youth.I have fond memories of throwing up in a field after a night raving and taking ecstasy.I kissed my first girlfriend while listening to his music. I will never get those nights back again...

 

To be fair when I was sobered up the next day I realised  she wasn't that good looking so I dumped her. The perils of teenage years !

He did have another song 18 years later (that charted higher!) but nobody remembers it except for this saddo.

 

 

The promotion for this song was just odd. Erick was nowhere to be seen, and every interviewer would ask Alexandra if the song was about a literal elephant. Peak humour.

I know that song but can't recall him featuring in it. That was probably the last song she put out before fading into the abyss.

 

Was hilarious when she claimed she single-handedly brought the saying "elephant in the room" to the UK though.

Edna Wright, sister of Darlene Love and lead singer with Honey Cone who had a huge US hit in 1971 with Want Ads, reported dead.

 

Poor Darlene, so shocked and heartbroken she forgot how to spell her sister's name.

The four seasons is down to 3.Whether it's spring summer autumn or winter they've lost I don't know.  https://www.nj.com/coronavirus/2020/09/tommy-devito-original-four-seasons-member-dies-of-covid-19-at-92.html

Well Nick Massi died nearly 20 years ago.

 

Seasons came and seasons went - there's still loads alive but from their earliest recordings they are down to two.

That's a shame. I know one of our admin is a huge fan.
