After all that I’ve been through these past 15 years or so, losing my mom, struggling with my health issues, losing my precious Angelina and friends, there are times when I felt I wasn’t lucky enough but when I look back at my musical career, it’s been very exciting! I’ve had so many wonderful experiences with so many wonderful people! I had been incredibly lucky. Not everyone could hear stories about Elvis and Hank Williams and Johnny Cash from people who were very close to them nor to be able to perform with the most talented people in the world! I am so honored!
For the last two days, when I started up my computer and scrolled my Twitter timeline, I was really sad to read the news about the loss of three famous people in a row. I personally don’t know them but it’s really sad they had to leave this world so fast.
First it was Mr. Jeff Beck. I knew his name since when I was small but in the year 2000 when he released his album “You Had It Coming”, I was thrilled! I love this album. In the past ten years or so, I’ve been singing “Rollin’ and Tumblin’ on my shows and it’s always fun.
昨日はまずジェフ・ベックの訃報。。。 子供の頃から名前はもちろん知っていたしギターも耳にしていた。 でも2000年にリリースされた「You Had It Coming」を聴いた時、素晴らしいな～と思いました。 ここ10年くらいは”Rollin’ and Tumblin'”をジェフベックのヴァージョンでステージで取り上げています。
And yesterday after knowing about Jeff Beck, another news popped in. It was about the passing of Tatjana Patitz, she was one of the Super Models in the ’80s~’90s. I remember reading Vogue, Bazaar, Cosmopolitan, all the fashion magazines and she was one the top models on the covers along with my favorite models, Christy Turlington, Claudia Schiffer and Cindy Crawford! She was only 56…too young to go.
I still remember this issue very well from 1992. Tatjana is the one in the middle.
And then again today, the shocking news about Lisa Marie Presley. Elvis Presley’s only daughter. She was only 54. I just saw the movie “Elvis” and saw Lisa in a photo with Austin Butler who played Elvis.
そして今日はエルビスプレスリーの一人娘、Lisa Marie Presleyの訃報。 ついこの前エルビスの映画を観たばかり、彼女が主演のAustin Butlerと写真に写っていたのを見たばかりでした。 Tatjanaに続き、同年代の訃報はかなりド～ンと重いものを感じます。
