My review of Warren Zevon's The Wind ran the day before he died. And then I was about to review the blues tribute to Johhny Cash the next week.

I admit it, I killed Jeff Buckley. It was May 1997, and I was playing soccer on a deserted pier in Memphis. One of us -- I think it was me -- accidentally kicked a football into the Mississippi, where it lodged into an upturned tree. A few days later, on the very same pier, Buckley met with his watery peril, undoubtedly -- so I must surmise -- because he was trying to fetch a soccer ball from the river. So I'm sorry. (And I'm also sorry for indrectly creating Starsailor.)

Chuck, it was me who kicked the ball into the water, wasn't it? At least, that's what I always tell 'em. ;)

This man killed Bob Marley, btw.

My brother farted within two feet of Rod Stewart.


He didn't die, though.

Jeff Buckley is a zombie, so while he's technically dead he's not really "dead". Unfortunately.

I can't remember: I'm guessing it was me as I can't play football and kicking it in the river seems like the sort of thing I'd do. But I suppose I could still be an accessory.

I did once punch Damon Albarn in the back, but it wasn't deliberate (sadly).

I also have accidentally shoved Damon Albarn. I wonder if unintentional assaults are a part of his daily life. I hope they are.

Unintentional sex apparently makes a regular appearance.

I showed Michael Hutchence a fun game

He's enough of a personal pain that a shove or two wouldn't hurt. However, I wouldn't waste the money wishing him dead. Karma, you know...

I shoulder checked Andy Garcia! It might even be recorded forever in the straight-to-video classic:

I kicked Sebastian Bach once, but sadly that too was unintentional. He moved before I could kick him a second time.

was he passed out on yr bathroom floor?

I have accidentally shoved Noel Gallagher! Insert "purposefully" in place of accidentally, just for the record.

Mama Cass requested her ham deli-thin but I was feeling lazy that afternoon.

I laid the slabs on Rod Hull's roof.

slabs on a roof, you murderer.

My best friend took her hoodie off in a club and accidentally clocked River Phoenix over the head with it. He was never the same, and died soon after.

I killed Michael Hutchence! Well, call it autoerotic asphyxiation, call it suicide, call it what you will. But not 12 hours before the discovery of his corpse I was discussing with a friend the utter insignificance of INXS and even wished his death (I think the exact phrase was Fuck Off and Die!) I also wished the same of Michael Stipe and Bono, so I'm still 1 out of 3.

Oh yes, I've also stepped on the feet of Juliana Hatfield and Claudia Gonson. I should not be allowed in the vicinity of musicians.

Jeff Kennett once tripped over my leg (that's only relevant to you melbournites)

My brother farted within two feet of Rod Stewart.


He didn't die, though.

But two years later a rumor began circulating the internet that doctors found some of Adams brothers farts inside Rod's stomach.
