Buddy Holly! Billy Holiday died from intravenous drug use. He (Buddy Holly) was a rocker, she (Billy Holiday) was a jazz singer.

Coincidentally, she also died in 1959. Maybe that's how the confusion arose!

There's a possibility. True. I don't keep track of
performers much, but the conversation provoked the
comment. Thanks.

Incidentally, I like the word rupicoline. Even with the fancy Latin suffix, it still sounds rockish (in a formal sort of way).


I had the word stuck in my head all day yesterday.
Should have had you put it to music.

It would have be folkirupicoline or countryrupicoline, since I don't do rockirupicoline.

Well, since I don't know the difference among the
choices, I guess I'll just have to put it to some
old Beethoven, Brahms, Bach melody in my head.
Some help you are. Thanks for nothing (yuk,yuk).
Perhaps a rock opera.

Refers to the word running around in my head yesterday
like an old song. Saparris writes music, was going to
have him put the word to music, at least that would be
better.

I understood what you meant.

I have a warped sense of humor...I know I know you weren't a Who fan! The band The Who did "a rock opera" called "Tommy".

But, a band called The Electric Light Orchestra did some rock versions of (or at least pieces of) some of the classics that the composers you mentioned penned.

I'm sure Sluggo can give many more examples of such rock operas as he's the resident music expert.

Gotcha!
I've Heard of all of the above. "Tommy" was a
local college performance which received a
huge amount of applause, some time back.
Listen mostly to classical and "oldies".
"ELO" is in crosswords periodically.
I'm sort of slow when it comes to humor: being
the resident Polish Joke.

A play on words? I'm too Polish to get it. Get it??

From the Old Sod, me, however they say it in Slavic.

"Cryptozoic" is a good word for the under-rocks organisms.

I've know a few cryptozoic people in my time.
