Mac Miller Dead at 26

Prolific rapper who underwent artistic reinvention dies from apparent drug overdose at Los Angeles home

Image

Clarke Tolton for RollingStone.com

Mac Miller, the 26-year-old rapper known for his canny wordplay and artistic reinvention, died Friday at his Los Angeles home. The apparent cause of death was a drug overdose.

“Malcolm McCormick, known and adored by fans as Mac Miller, has tragically passed away at the age of 26,” his family said in a statement. “He was a bright light in this world for his family, friends and fans. Thank you for your prayers. Please respect our privacy. There are no further details as to the cause of his death at this time.”

While initially counted as a member of the frat-rap genre of the early 2010s, Miller’s career was defined by a refusal to fit in an artistic box. He transitioned from party rap to heady backpacker lyricism to jazz-inflected songwriting in his final two albums. To do so, he often turned away from guaranteed commercial success in favor of experimentation and craftsmanship in his work.


Not a tap fan but damn.. I was a fan. This one sucked.

Eddie Money, age 70, R.I.P.

I can't say that I'm a huge fan, but Eddie Money reminds me of when I was a kid in the 70s. I listened to a lot of radio back then and this song is for sure on the soundtrack of my A.M. radio days. :lol:

He was advanced and beyond such stuff...but I was doing blow on the tables at Trader Vic's drinking the whatever drink was their reservoir of sweet alc and he chuckled. Must have been late 80's early 90's...I don't remember. The rest of the night was great and not great. I loved seeing him.

Btw, watched The Devil and Daniel Johnstone last night...fairly excruciating. His good work reminds me of the stripped down work of Jane's at Wilton in personality.

There was word out that Baker was critically ill the past few weeks after retiring from drummer a few years ago due to heart issues so this wasn't really a shock. But he was a pretty incredible and extremely prolific drummer even long after his Clapton/Cream days. I think after maybe John Bonham and Keith Moon, he was the most influential classic rock drummer of all time. Aside from Cream and Blind Faith, he's the drummer on John Lyndon's late 80's Public Image Limited self titled album with Steve Vai and the 2nd highly recommended Masters Of Reality album. He played with Gary Moore and Jack Bruce on the excellent sorta-Cream album "BBM." That Cream reunion home video from about 15 years ago is also highly recommended and of course the documentary "Beware Of Ginger Baker."

I remember Roxette being the first group I found on my own as boy, along with the Beach Boys, that showed me that music could transform the way you felt, like was really important......

Wasn't really a big Rush fan, in fact walked out midway through their show after seeing Gary Moore open for them in the mid-80's. But I saw them much later in 2002 and they blew me away, especially Peart, who is unquestionably one of the top 10 greatest rock drummers ever. His kit was big and elaborate enough for 3 drummers and he played all that shit, it was more than just for show.

Peart had a pretty tragic personal life, in the 90's his wife died and not long after, his daughter died as well and it took several years to get his head back together, mostly via long solitary motorcycle trips across the country. Rush retired about 4 1/2 years ago and it did appear that Peart was the one most done with touring due to the physical stress with playing. But it sounds like the initial brain cancer diagnosis was at least a year or two after they retired. If true, he got to enjoy maybe a couple years tops of retirement before spending his last couple dealing with the horrible effects and treatment for it.

Always loved him but found him frustrating due to him sounding roboticly fake because he was "too perfect" for my ears.....he's like Tom Brady...meh Rush but he's a goat for sure...and bozzio...fuck you and your 40 piece kits! I couldn't think of 15 different licks to play on ten of the drums


I do think Tom Sawyer alone had a fundamental impact on me that lead me to drums...and Neal a larger one once studied....akin to Micky Hart for me

RIP
