Did you know that Whitney Houston's debut LP, called simply Whitney Houston had 4 number one singles on it? It's hard to choose a favorite among so many great tracks, but "The Greatest Love of All" is one of the best, most powerful songs ever written about self-preservation, dignity. Its universal message crosses all boundaries and instills one with the hope that it's not too late to better ourselves. Since it's impossible in this world we live in to empathize with others, we can always empathize with ourselves. It's an important message, crucial really. And it's beautifully stated on the album.

I do agree with you, you have to know that there are very few positives that can come from taking that first hit of crack and a shit ton more negatives.. But sometimes people just make mistakes. How many people on here smoke cigs? Most of them probably started similarly. Out with some friends having fun, someone offers you a hit and you take it. 15 years later you're still hooked. They knew cigarrettes were bad in the first place but they just made a mistake. With the super addictive nature of drugs like crack and heroin, a lot of times it's just a one-time bad decision that got them hooked to a lifetime of the shit.

Whitney was found dead in her bathtub with her head underwater. The speculation is she took Xanax and fell asleep in her bathtub since mixing that with alcohol will make someone extremely sleepy.

Did you know that Whitney Houston's debut LP, called simply Whitney Houston had 4 number one singles on it? It's hard to choose a favorite among so many great tracks, but "The Greatest Love of All" is one of the best, most powerful songs ever written about self-preservation, dignity. Its universal message crosses all boundaries and instills one with the hope that it's not too late to better ourselves. Since it's impossible in this world we live in to empathize with others, we can always empathize with ourselves. It's an important message, crucial really. And it's beautifully stated on the album.

Houston’s only child from husband Bobby Brown was widely described as distraught after her mom was found dead Saturday.

And, keep in mind, those were the days when it was pretty damn difficult to have your own TV show ... no cable, no reality TV, only a few channels ...

Bobby Brown Loses His Father and Whitney Houston
FEBRUARY 12, 2012

Our condolences go out to Bobby Brown after the lose of his father and Witney Houston today.

The singer’s father, Herbert Brown, passed away last night after a long battle with cancer reports TMZ. He was 82. Last week, Brown took to his Twitter page to put in a prayer request for his ailing dad. “Requesting prayers for Pop Brown… @ hospital with him now…” Brown wrote. He later tweeted, “Thanks again for all the prayers… Keep them coming….”

Sources close to the family say that Herbert, who was affectionately known as “Pop” had been ill for many years. Herbert appeared on Bobby’s hit reality show “Being Bobby Brown” back in 2005.
Vyzion Radio is sending our prayers out for the entire Brown family.

The music scene underwent a radical shift at the end of the 80's.

It wasn't ALL her fault - popular music moved away from the areas that had made her so famous. She was able to cling to her fame for a few years by associating herself with big Hollywood movies but that too was fleeting.

Grace took acid before the Woodstock performance. She smoked everything that wasn't nailed down. Snorted cocaine and H. One time, she set her tits on fire.

That, my friend, was a real woman.

It's the difference between being a performer and an artist.



Your distinction is meaningless/unimportant to me.


This isn't like a building, where it takes an architect who is a true visionary to think up something brilliant/beautiful and any one of a hundred contractors could build it. Here, the writer has the thought and inspiration, and the performer uses their separate but equally amazing talent to bring it fully to life.

I don't know ... I think Mr. Garcia Bronco's statement makes a whole lot of sense, Mr. Amnorix.

There are performers (singers, players) ... the people who execute other people's work. Then, there are writers who provide the material that performers require ... of course, that works both ways. Then, there are artists ... people who both write and perform. This, I believe is where the true creativity resides.

In my experience, there is a big, big difference between those "types" of people.

In fact, I can say with 100% conviction, that the reason popular music has taken an overall downturn in creativity over the past couple of decades, is tied to the fact that, in this day and age, "performers" consider themselves to be "artists" when they don't write a damn thing, really. I can't tell you the number of "recording artists" who are basically just singers who only record songs for which they can receive "co-writing' credit. So, they hire a writer who is willing to give them credit in exchange for some royalties. It adds to the "artists" income, but the side-effect is an environment where there is far less risk-taking and creativity suffers as a result. Honestly, it's a huge problem ... I call it; art as wall-paper.

JFC! Like she was some kind of roll model that died tragically . Another crackhead dies. YAA! The worlds a better place IMO.

I really don't see that many posts here praising WH's virtues. She was a crack addict alright, but one with enormous talent. Those type of lost souls you actually root for to beat the problem because their talent does make this world a better place. Now if, say, a Kim Kardashian or a Paris Hilton slides down the crack shoot and winds up dead I'd agree with your last comment.

Ya it amazes me that a lot of her fans don't know that her most famous song was originally by Dolly Parton.

I did. DP also wrote it. Frankly, as great as WH's version was I always preferred Dolly's. More charm.

She couldn't paint, either. I've seen superior elephant art. Shaky hands, I guess.

Grace Slick. Now, there's a girl who could sing and paint and hold her dope.

Sorry, Mr. Brock ... didn't see this until now.

Let's see ... there are so many ...

I'm living in Nashville now, so I'm most familiar with the "Country" artists. Look at the song list on the back of any ... that's right, any ... "Country" album and if the "artist" is listed as "writer", the odds are about 100 to 1 that there's a ghost or co-writer involved.

It's simple, really. The successful acts can dictate what songs they want to record. So, they will work with a co-writer or ghost to write their "own" material. The co-writers or ghosts go along because it's the only way they can get their stuff cut.

It's one of the primary reasons that "Country" music sucks ass.

To my mind, the best stuff that's being recorded in Nashville never sees radio play ... and never will, probably. Heck, a lot of it never makes it to CD.

There have been a lot of changes around here. The Internet thing has altered the business a lot. Musicians have options now that they never had in the past ... for getting their stuff into the marketplace, I mean.

It's been a long time coming, but it's nice to see the record companies kissing ass for a change. Sadly, however, most "popular" acts are completely, 100% manufactured ... they aren't exactly organically grown. That's because all the investment in new "artists" has to be focused on just a few acts, so they take fewer chances. And, fewer chances means more pap for the masses to digest.

Official cause of death released:



Whitney Houston died from drowning in a hotel bathtub, but coroner's officials said Thursday that heart disease and chronic cocaine use were contributing factors to the singer's death.

The release of the autopsy findings ends weeks of speculation about what killed the Grammy-winning singer on Feb. 11 on the eve of the Grammy Awards.

Houston was found submerged in the bathtub of her room at the Beverly Hilton Hotel and her death has been ruled as accidental. Several bottles of prescription medications were found in her hotel room, but coroner's officials said they weren't in excessive quantities.

Beverly Hills police said in a statement there was no evidence of wrongdoing in connection with Houston's death.


We are saddened to learn of the toxicology results, although we are glad to now have closure," said Patricia Houston, the singer's sister-in-law and manager.

Coroner's Chief of Operations Craig Harvey said cocaine and its byproducts were found in Houston's system, and it was listed as a contributing factor in her death. He said the results indicated Houston was a chronic cocaine user.

Toxicology results also showed Houston had marijuana, Xanax, the muscle relaxant Flexeril, and the allergy medication Benadryl in her system. Houston died just hours before she was scheduled to appear at producer Clive Davis' pre-Grammy Awards bash.

The singer also had a heart disease that caused blockages in her arteries.

Houston, 48, was buried in a New Jersey cemetery next to her father after an emotional four-hour funeral service that was attended by friends, family and superstars such as Oprah Winfrey, Tyler Perry, Alicia Keys, Mariah Carey, Mary J. Blige, Jennifer Hudson and Roberta Flack

Houston, a sensation from her first, eponymous album in 1985, was one of the world's best-selling artists from the mid-1980s to the late 1990s, turning out such hits as "I Wanna Dance With Somebody," ''How Will I Know," ''The Greatest Love of All" and "I Will Always Love You." But as she struggled with drugs, her majestic voice became raspy, and she couldn't hit the high notes.

Interest in her music skyrocketed after her death, pushing her songs back on to charts and into heavy rotation on the radio.

A full autopsy report is expected to be released in two weeks.
