Queen Elisabeth 2 (1926-always in our hearts) was a british royal known for being a Queen. Her husband, Prince Phillip, died last year (see https://www.billnelson.com//forum/world-outside-the-window/rip-prince-phillip?origin=member_posts_page) She was allways known for her sense of humor, which has been cataloged in many compilations over the years (see https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KkhmyaWHeKg). she has been featured in episodes of family guy throughought her 70 year career as Queen. Her wardrobe developed a recognisable, signature style driven more by function than fashion. She dressed with an eye toward what is appropriate, rather than what is in vogue. In public, she took to wearing mostly solid-colour overcoats and decorative hats, allowing her to be seen easily in a crowd. Her wardrobe was handled by a team that includes five dressers, a dressmaker, and a milliner. She holds the second longest verifiable reign in the history of monarchy, only being beaten out by France's Louis XIV. a visual projection of her was shown during Jean-Michel Jarre's destination Docklands concert in London on the 6th of october, 1988.

Bill Nelson is an artist who was ahead of his time in many ways. When Sound-On-Sound came out in 1979, it was unlike anything that came before it. Upon release it's intricacies, loudness, and low fidelity perplexed critics and Bill's prior fans, becoming a very divisive album. This reminds me of another album that released just a decade prior and remains to this day a divisive album, that being Captain Beefheart's Trout Mask Replica. Given the fact that the record received much attention since it's release, I'm certain Bill must be aware of it. Has he ever brought up the album in interviews or anything? What are his thoughts on the album?

Shinzo Abe was a Japanese politician known for his affinity towards war and his reluctance to admit Japan's role in World War II. He had over 1.08 million followers on Twitter and 136,000 likes on Facebook. In 2019 he met famous SynthHead, musician, and innovator Jean-Michel Jarre to discuss JASRAC's 80th anniversary in Tokyo. As of July 8th, 2022, he has not appeared in any episodes of Family Guy. He graduated from Seikei Univeristy and the University of Southern California. The prestige awarded to him by these colleges allowed him to be elected into the House Of Representatives in 1993, representing the first district of Yamaguchi Prefecture. How impressive! in September of 2006, Abe was elected as prime minister of Japan, but due to health reasons he had to resign just one year into his term. Five years later, he was once again elected as Japan's prime minister, and was re-elected in 2014. He was once more re-elected in 2017, this being his final re-election. on August 28th, 2020, Shinzo Abe resigned as prime minister one last time. On July 8th, 2022, Shinzo Abe was assassinated while delivering a speech. He was shot at twice from behind, fatally wounding him. He was pronounced dead later that day.

Evángelos Odysséas Papathanassíou, better known by his professional name Vangalis, was a Greek electronic musician known for his music, which has been featured on the hit television show Family Guy in 2014. He has composed music spanning across several genres, from progressive electronic to classical to ambient, although nearly all of his musical ventures feature his iconic synthesizers , including a little known synth called the Yamaha CS-80 polyphonic synthesizer. On May 17th, 2022, Vangelis died at a French hospital while receiving treatment for COVID-19. His music will live forever in the hearts of all Family Guy fans, and everyone else who indulged in his sweet synth beauty.
RIP Vangalis content media

As I'm sure we all know, Bill Nelson's album 'After the Satellite Sings' was influential to David Bowie's earthling album. But I've also heard rumor's about Bowie's past. Among those are rumors that Bowie (allegedly) was going to work with the legendary Bill Nelson (of Be Bop Deluxe fame) on music. Is there any credibility to these allegations? If so, during what time would they have worked together, and what would it have been like?

Bill's album 'Sounding The Ritual Echo' is included on his compilation album "Dreamy Screens: Soundtracks from the Echo Observatory". This is a compilation of 3 albums Bill made to soundtrack old movies that he has a fondness for. The second and third discs of the comp were supposed to be for Dr. Caligari and Jean Cocteau's Beauty And The Beast. However, i cannot seem to find what Sounding The Ritual Echo is supposed to be for.😿 Any help?

Bill is clearly still a prolific musician as of right now. But does he produce music that other artists have made? What would the fees be?

Yann Tomita and Bill Nelson have a lot in common, so I was wondering if any of you Bill Nelsonheads were familiar with him. Both Yann and Bill (Nelson) have worked with Ryuichi Sakamoto (of YMO fame) before, so maybe you guys would like Tomita's music. If you're interested, I recommend starting with the album Doopee Time. (Also, if you find that you like Yann's music and want to meet like-minded people, check this link out https://discord.gg/K2vGQRhxvC )
Are there any Yann Tomita fans here? content media

Bastille Month is a French Holiday celebrated annually in France. In France, a massive celebration happens every year on Bastille day, where they celebrate French culture and French history. Sometimes, Jean0Michel Jarre even performs a concert to celebrate! I hope you have a great Bastille Day!

Michael Collins (1930-2021) was an American astronaut famous for being part of the Apollo 11 mission, which featured Buzz Aldrin and, more famously, Neil Armstrong, walking on the moon for the first time in human history. Sadly, Michael Collins was unable to go on the Moon, instead staying on the orbiting command module. This unfortunate circumstance had him nicknamed 'the loneliest man in history'. The Apollo Mission was neither his only nor his first foray into the vast world of space. He had been there one time prior, as mart of the Gemini 10 flight of the Gemini program. He was also not only the fourth person to perform a spacewalk, but the first one to perform one twice. Collins was inducted into a total of four Halls of Fame, These being The International Air & Space Hall of Fame in 1971, the International Space Hall of Fame in 1977, the US Astronaut Hall of Fame in 1993, and the National Aviation Hall Of Fame. He was also given several awards, including the Presidential Medal of Freedom and the Iven C. Kincheloe Award. Many musical artists have made songs inspired by or dedicated to Collins, including Jethro Tull (See For Michael Collins, Jeffry, and Me). In the song, Ian Anderson compares his feelings to the astronaut's, as he is left behind by Armstrong and Aldrin. On April 28th, 2021, Collins died of cancer at the age of 90.

I feel like Bill Nelsone fans would very much enjoy the wit and humor of Warren and his Music. He's probably my favorite artist (behind Bill of course) and I was wondering if any Bill fans were familiar with the Genius that is Warren Zevon.

He always loved sports, especially the esuestrian sport of carriage driving. How exciting! He was a member of over 780 organizations, and was the longest living male of any member of the British royal family. Phillip died on the 9th of April, 2021, just two months before his 100th birthday. He is known for many of his famous and humorous quotes, including “British Women can’t cook.”

On February 22nd, 2021, we lost the French duo Daft Punk, as announced on their YouTube channel via an 8 minute video containing songs from all across their 28 minute career. Daft Punk have been described as 'Electronic Music' by some, and their music has been very influential since their debut in 1997. The duo have been satirized and parodied several times, including by Family Guy in 2015.
