Richard's Music

What do Creed:

(Whoa, looking at that video again, was that freakily like Katrina or what? Even to the
stinkin school bus! Holy cats!)


And Audioslave:

have in common? (Goodness knows, it's not religion!) They're all what I think of as 'Richard's Music". Dark gritty lyrics & vocals, Short, repeatative phrases. The percusion, while not being solo material, is important and strong. This is what Richard's spirit sounds like to me.

And there's a reason why I'm listening to it this morning.

More later.

  1. And actually, the lyrics to Audioslave's Cochie remind me a lot of Richard too:
    Go on and save yourself
    And take it out on me.

    Could it have something to do with the Audioslave writer (Chris Cornell) was dealing with addiction issues at the time he wrote it? Could be.
