ACDC!!! yes… when you say ACDC you have to scream and shout because they are the hard rock band !!

I’m going to tell you some crispy details about this famous worldwide band…

First of all, ACDC has several meanings like ‘After Christ Devil Comes » or  » Anti Christ Destroy Christ » and more…

As you can see, hear and understand we are still in the hard rock universe, with the creepy Devil and the weird things about Christ.

But don’t forget what the band thinks about the letters A, C, D, C… For them it means the power and love for music.

It is powerful…

Oh by the way, do you know the story behind the logo ? …  Of course you don’t because, who knows?

Margaret, Malcom and Angus’s sister saw this logo on a vacuum cleaner and then told the musicians about it. And they liked it!!

Voila! End of this (tiny, tiny) story about the logo… But don’t we say « behind a little thing is hiding something bigger »??

Here we go with the backstage, those things that people know… but don’t really know!

1- Bon Scott’s death

His body was found in London after a big party certainly with a lot, a lot of alcohol because he died while suffocating in his own vomit (ew)! It was a huge thing!! Imagine, today, a member of One Direction dying… everyone would go search their names on Google or they would listen to their music… It would be such a good thing for the band… Economically speaking !

And that… did happen to ACDC, they actually became more famous after the death of one of their member!

2- Bye Bye! Malcom Young

In 2014, Malcom had to leave the band because of his health…

Yes, he had a stroke that made him lose his memory! So it is difficult for a singer/player to sing or play when you don’t remember the chords and the lyrics of a song…

3- Phil Rudd, bad boy!

Phil Rudd is literally a bad boy, the worst boy in the group… And it’s not a compliment… Believe me!

They first fired him because he was dealing with a lot of drugs and alcohol.

Dealing with justice’s issues too.

According to the police, he threatened someone (and his daughter) who had badly made his job… He hired a hit man to kill them but thank god he got caught before they were killed!

I told you 😉 Phil is a bad guy…

 

I hope I helped you to know more about ACDC. THANK YOU for reading this article!!

Cheers !

The King of Pop

Hi! I am going to present to you an artist everyone knows. I am totally sure you know him! This person is Michael Jackson! He is the most famous artist in the world, the most honoured one, a great dancer, the best singer, well in a nutshell, he is THE artist. Seven of his albums are still among the most sold out albums in the world. Above all, M.Jackson is a humanitarian person and that’s why I love him. But now he’s dead. He died on June 25 2009 and he was only 50 years old. I think he was young and he had a lot to give yet. He was born in Indiana in 1958 in a big underprivileged family. He grew up with his eight brothers and sisters. A few years later, the little Michael and his elder brothers created the emblematic band that we all know : The Jackson 5.

[youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aASwsMOy-pA] He started his solo career at the age of 13 I think. He made some songs with a few artists. After this period, in the beginning of the 80s, people realized that MJ was revolutionizing the music industry . He became one of the 1st singer who released his songs with music videos. All of this started with one of my favorite songs of this period « Don’t Stop ‘Til You Get Enough ». [youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yURRmWtbTbo] 1982 – Thriller is the  longest music video of the Pop History. It is14 minutes long! It is like a short movie. I love Thriller because it scares my sister and it always makes me laugh. So, Thriller had an amazing success: 1 million albums sold in only one month, it is awesome, 10 millions in 10 years and more than 40 millions until now.

Through his concerts and videos MJ invented several famous dancing moves  like « the Moonwalk » which became his hallmark. Once, during a live performance with his brothers in 1988 the King of Pop sang and danced Billie Jean for the first time. It is was also THE FIRST time he did the MOONWALK.

[youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g3t9-kf7ZNA] During his life, MJ contributed to fight against famines, damaging environment, child abuse, education, diseases and racism. In 1985 he wrote  « We are the World » with Lionel Ritchie to fight against hunger in Ethiopia. In 1992, he created a foundation called « Heal the World ». This foundation delivered medicine for children and fought against AIDS, violence at schools and famine. MJ’s humanitarian aid collected more than 400 millions dollars.

Many rumours said that he used to sleep in an oxygen bed and that he also bleached his skin. He changed his noise seven times or more, we don’t really know. People even say that he abused children, but it was never proved and the justice court said he was innocent.

However, everyone must know that he was accused of plagiarism concerning a short passage of his song  » Wanna Be Startin’ Somethin  » He used the sample of the song SOUL MAKOSSA « Mama-se, mama-sa,mama-coo-sa » which is an African song written by Manu Dibango who is a famous Cameroonian saxophonist and singer. Manu Dibango won the case and MJ was found guilty.
MJ et Lady Diana met in 1988 for the Bad World Tour in London. Knowing that she was attendind his concert, he decided to remove the song « Dirty Diana » from his set list in order not to shock the royal family. But the Princess told him that It was her favourite song. He was surprised and frustrated but since then, they became friends and shared many intimate moments, until the tragic death of the Princess in 1997.

Le Slam de l’amalgame

Avec la participation de Tiwayo, et en collaboration avec Zebrock, et le Conservatoire Edgar Varèse.

Cette année les élèves du Lycée Galilée revisitent à leur manière une histoire du rock’n roll, autour d’un groupe éphémère monté avec la complicité du rockeur-crooner Tiwayo. Ils nous interpréteront quelques standards classiques, accompagnés de la chorale du Lycée, notamment influencés par le film « Hair », ou déclameront des textes de leurs propres compositions, inspirés d’un rock engagé ou témoin de son époque. Une aventure agrémentée de projections vidéo, de quelques solos de Tiwayo, d’une exposition de pochettes de disque fictives, crées spécialement pour l’occasion en cours d’arts plastiques, ainsi que d’une démonstration d’acrosport en musique. Une représentation pluridisciplinaire sur fond de rock, des années 50 à nos jours, qui devrait satisfaire autant les yeux, les oreilles et les jambes…..

 Le Slam de l’amalgame

Islamophobie et racisme, l’amalgame ruine la République,

Toutes ces pensées, à peine fondée sont tellement pathétiques,

La France a une culture, une culture riche et métissée,

Chacun y participe et ce, peu importe sa communauté,  

Elle est la somme de nos principes, de nos valeurs, de notre histoire ,

Alors mettre l’une d’elle de côté n’est qu’un procédé dérisoire,

Comme une lame de rasoir leur indifférence est tranchante,  

Depuis les attentas, la mise à l’écart est frappante,  

Dieu a créé les différences, eux ont créé les inégalités,

L’amalgame n’est autre que la référence des idées molles dépourvues d(e) solidité,

Ils ont bien conscience que leurs préjugés nous portent atteintes,

Sans plus attendre j(e) me dois de sauver ma peau et celles des gens de ma teinte,

Alors j(e) prends la lance, la flamme de l’amalgame c’est à moi de l’éteindre,

Sachez que les insultes sur ma couleur sont comme des coups,

Qu’ils nous assènent sans cesse et la douleur est crue,

C’est comme une trahison, on le vit comme un contrecoup,

Avec le temps et vos paroles la plaie de ma souffrance s’est accrue,  

Ensemble essayons de faire évoluer les mentalités,

Pour éviter d’en arriver à une France fracturée,

Sachez qu’il n’est jamais trop tard pour une révolution,  

Il n’y a qu’ensemble que nous pouvons mettre fin à cette indignation ,

Pour éviter le cauchemar que de vivre dans un pays communautarisée,

Il faut s(e) réveiller, faisons comme les lumières éclairons les pensées,

Sur les braises d(e) la discrimination arrêtons de mettre l’essence,  

Il serait peu être temps, qu’enfin on retrouve notre bon sens ,

Un être humain ne mérite pas d’être associé à des mouvements de terreur,  

Mais l’amalgame, réfléchissez, qui d’eux ou d(e) nous doit en avoir le plus peur,

Retrouvons la laïcité au même titre que la liberté d’expression,  

Ne jugeons plus une personne à son voile, à sa barbe ou à sa religion,  

Alors pour les actes passés ou avenir,

De ces pensées, essayez la prochaine fois de vous abstenir,

Pour le tueur au scooter pas d’amalgame,

Pour les attentas au stade de France, pas d’amalgame,

Pour les terrasses de Paris, pas d’amalgame,

Même pour Charlie Hebdo, pas d’amalgame,

Pour un monde sans haine, sans peine, pas d’amalgame.
