  1. Oh my gosh, that is so sad. I never knew Charlie, but I will miss him, and I love his drumming. Over a decade ago, I saw a beautiful portrait of Charlie that his band mate Ron Wood painted of him smiling with his chin in his hand and I cannot get that image of Charlie out of my mind right now (but it’s ok). RIP, Charlie, and have fun jamming with Bonzo, Keith, and The Professor. 🥁🥁🥁🖤🖤🖤
  2. That’s really sad. His violin playing in “Dust in the Wind” is so beautiful and haunting, and now it’s even more beautiful and haunting
  3. Amen, and if your mom is a fan of Rush and Van Halen, hopefully Neil and Eddie are entertaining her. 😊
  4. Oh no, not another tragic 2020 death. How sad. RIP.
  5. Hopefully as many girls as possible over the course of Justice Ginsburg’s long life and career. She inspired and will continue to inspire me.
  6. That’s beautiful, but why did it take until 2020?
  7. We lost Peter Green from Fleetwood Mac this weekend. What a guitar legend.
  8. I’d like to give him a song, but I don’t know if I have any that are good enough. Bono taught me to sing. When I got my car and could enjoy any music I wanted (especially lots of U2) all alone, I slowly went from the girl who would rather die than sing to the girl who would sing shyly to the girl who would belt it out like her favorite Irish tenor and duet with him on dozens of his songs while driving to and from work. This took longer, but Bono also taught me to write songs. I was blown away by every track on Achtung Baby! and wished I could write a whole album or even just 1 song with lyrics as amazing as Bono’s. I have written multiple songs about or inspired by Bono, but none of them seem worthy to perform for him. I’m glad I wrote them, even the weak ones, because each was a learning experience, but would any of them be worthy gifts on the level of the gifts that Bono has given me? Thank you for teaching me to sing and write songs, Bono, and happy birthday!
  9. I don’t know how they do it, but my parents don’t love Bono and the band. If I couldn’t have Bono himself as my dad, I would have been very happy to have a dad (and a mom) who loved him and the band as much as all of us do.
  10. I love him so much, and I have often wished that he was my dad.
