It is a sentiment that rings true for many of the dead artists of the 90s and early 2000s, but it has been a point of contention for years between artists and labels.
For many of them, the legacy of their work is still with them, and they may never be able to access the same resources as their fans, but they can still make an impact.
That’s why, despite the growing number of artists who have been deceased in recent years, the current wave of artists and label owners that are attempting to revive the dead artist is still very much alive and well.
It’s a sentiment which many of these artists feel is a shame, because they can’t just sit back and let their music die and leave it all behind.
We asked a few of the most influential artists who had an influence on their work to share their thoughts on the matter.
Here’s what they had to say.
D’Angelo and The Notorious B.I.G. In a new interview with Rolling Stone, D’Angelo, who died at the age of 70 on June 10, explained that he wanted to “get back to the point of when we were still alive and were just making records.”
He then goes on to say that he thought that a lot of the artists of his generation didn’t want to go out.
He went on to explain that the first record that he made with Biggie Smalls, the album Death Certificate, was the result of a conversation that took place in his Brooklyn apartment after the two men had gone to dinner together.
“The first record I made with him, I was in the kitchen of my apartment with some music,” he said.
“He’s sitting at a table and he’s eating his dinner and he comes up and he says, ‘Do you wanna go out?’
And I said, ‘Sure, why not?’ and he goes, ‘You want to get back to when we’re still alive?
What’s going on?’
And he said, ‘[Laughing] Oh, man, I’m really excited about this, I don’t want you to die.
I want you alive.’
I said okay, but I think that’s a lot different than how you want to die.”
D’Agostino In an interview with the Guardian, the musician and composer told Rolling Stone that he “had to be a lot more conscious” when making his records.
“I always had a very conscious approach,” he explained.
“It’s something I’ve always had to be aware of, because I didn’t think it was necessary.”
He continued, “It was a lot about me not letting the world know that I was going to be doing this, and the fact that I didn.
I’m not gonna be making any music about it, and I’m trying to not make any music to do that.
I wanted to make music that was about the things that were happening in my life.
I didn’st want to make the record about anything else, and that’s what I did.”
Rage Against The Machine In 2012, Rage Against The Mob’s frontman, Lenny Kravitz, announced that he was retiring from the band and that he would no longer perform.
“I know a lot has been said about this,” he wrote on his Facebook page.
“There have been so many rumors and assumptions about my retirement and the reasons for it.
I am not going to say anything about my feelings, because it is not my place.
I just wanted to take a step back and say it out loud for the world to see: this is not the place.
There are other things that I want to do with the band, and if people would like to go and do it, I will be happy to.
It was not easy to leave and be this way, and when I said I am done, I did not mean it.”
After the announcement, many of Kravits Facebook followers voiced their frustration with his decision.
“Rage against the world?
That sounds so sad,” one person wrote.
“You didn’t get to say it.
That just sounds like you don’t care about your music, and it is.
You made the decision to retire and retire and retirement without making the music.
You are an idiot.”
Another added, “So you don´t feel like you have to make songs anymore?
You just don´T have to be sad anymore.
I don´ t think it’s right that this is your career anymore, but if you want something to be important, it should be music.
I think this is a sad situation.
You don’t have to worry about that anymore, because you know how you feel about it.
You just want to live.
The world just doesn´t care anymore.”
In another Facebook post, the rapper Rage Against the Machine added, “…this has been so much to ask for, and so many of us have waited so long for you to get
