  Illinois Wrongful Death Attorney Rock Island Public Transportation Accident Rock Island County Lawyer
Wrongful death occurs when companies or individuals are negligent or either of these are found to have misconduct in their duties to others.
Four main causes of wrongful death are medical malpractice (resulting in death), vehicle or public transportation accidents (such as airplane or trains), work related injuries (including exposure to hazardous substances), and possibly deaths during supervised activities.
When wrongful deaths occur due to personal injury, or derivative actions, they may be held to the statute of limitations because no personal injury claim was asserted within an appropriate period of time.

 The Death of American Rock and Roll
By the late fifties, rock and roll had begun to move away from the raw immediacy of its early stars and become a vehicle for the banal contrivances of camera friendly faces singing songs about teenage romance.
It had barely established itself, yet rock and roll was losing its rebellious edge and drifting into the abyss, becoming nothing more then a catchphrase for corporate-sponsored teen music with a beat.
All was not lost, however, to the most die-hard-rock-and-roll fan had it was disheartening to see rock and roll fall prey to the corporate machinations and manipulated anarchy formula.

His caption reads: “Site of large petroglyph rock at Stovepipe Wells: Overlook Point, Red Amphitheater.” The man in the photo is unidentified, but the dump truck in the background may have something to do with why the rock was moved from here to Stovepipe Wells Village.

 The Chronicle: 5/11/2001: Is Rock 'n' Roll Dead? Only if You Aren't Listening
The senior scholar's evidence of rock's morbidity was entirely anecdotal, which he passed off as "ethnographic"; it consisted primarily of the fact that he had spent a good deal of time "hanging out" with college students during the previous summer, and could find no commonality in their listening habits or their tastes.
Rock was seen as an overturning of all the traditional values that had made our country great.
If rock really is about freedom, the paralysis of habitual styles of listening and thinking is the way we guarantee the death of rock.

 Salon.com Books | "Sentenced to Death" and "Rock 'Til You Drop" by John Strausbaugh
No, rock 'n' roll isn't about a counterculture, or the Hall of Fame, or how old you are, or -- least of all -- rock criticism: Rock is about people who love the rootedness of the music and love to live in its groove.
The repetitive wailing's of rock stars new and aged as well as the tooth (or gum) gnashing of their critics is wearisome.
The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, as McLeary concludes, while noble in its agenda, is just one part old age home, one part relic gift shop and three parts time warp, where aging rockers of yesteryear can forget that their heroin injections of the '60s and '70s have been replaced with biyearly prostate exams.

 village voice > music > Say It Loud—Get Off of My Cloud: Dancing With Mr. Brownstones by Frank Kogan
But his death is part of his persona in a way that death wasn't part of the pre-posthumous persona of, say, Johnny Ace or Sam Cooke or Frankie Lymon or Marvin Gaye.
And the kids up there in that junior-high rock band were probably as conflicted as I was, as unsure as I where they were in relation to the "heys" and the "yous." The lead guitarist hanged himself several years later—I know nothing about it.
Becoming a "rock star" is maybe a way out of this, since it's not the teacher or boss who's judging you anymore (supposedly).

 Reason
It may never have been particularly true, but since rock's emergence as a self-conscious, if always ill-defined, category in the mid-1950s, fans and foes alike could agree that the form is somehow a challenge to the status quo.
As Frank Sinatra memorably put it in 1957, rock "is sung, played, and written for the most part by cretinous goons.  By means of its almost imbecilic reiteration it manages to be the martial music of every sideburned delinquent on the face of the earth." Exactly.
In a larger sense, the same is true for rock itself, which after more than five decades now boasts not only a joy-killing Hall of Fame but so endless gestures toward maturity and responsibility that you almost suspect rockers to be suffering from repetitive-stress injuries.

 THE DEATH OF ROCK? | Music News | Music | Entertainment Weekly
Of course, rock was also supposed to be dead in 1963, just before the Beatles arrived to resurrect it, and it was pronounced dead again during the disco years.
In fact, one of the most striking similarities between rock's current alleged demise and its earlier mortal moments is that all have occurred during periods when white rock has been separated from fl music-especially on the airwaves.
Whether rock can survive and prosper in the '90s is really a question of whether those artists-and new ones-can learn to use its musical vocabulary to say something fresh.

 Definition of Death rock
Death Rock (also sometimes known as Deathrock or Death Punk) is a term used to distinguish conventional Gothic rock from the more punk influenced scene that sprang up on the American West Coast in the early 1980s.
The style is currently seeing a resurgence of sorts, as more punk influenced goth bands begin to appear as a reaction to the growing influence of EBM and Techno in goth music.
The style is influenced by such horror punk bands as The Misfits, who dealt in the same kind of morbid imagery that the LA Death rock groups traded in.

 Entombed - Swedish Death Metal
Merging rock and death metal Entombed have created an emotive and roughshod rock-n-roll alternative to alternative, grunge, and other neo-punk hybrids in the same way that Glen Danzig's later experimentation reinjected blues into the punk-based rock music artform.
Where it is excellent is in fusing the atmospheric nature of alternative rock with the thunderous romantic urges and structures of epic sludge-rock, but what is often forgotten is the metal, which here is really only a vestigial organ of heavy distortion and a few strumming techniques.
Their rockish death metal emerged from the primitive pugilism of European thunderous death, and picked up from its Swedish heritage a tendency to use melody and finely textured tremolo picking with the trademark blistering electric double distortion for which Nordic death metal is infamous.
