Long live McQueen!

It's been more or less a week as I finally got some down time to actually post something here. Hopefully you all are doing well. Last weekend I visited this secondhand shop on my way home and found this "Pink Floyd" Band tee. The wicked design on the tee was what definitely caught my eye. Honestly I'm not familiar with their music whatsoever, all I'm aware of is that they're this huge English rock band from the early 60's and 70's and that's pretty much it. In order to avoid the notion of being ignorant, I googled them once I got home and listen to a couple of their tracks. It's pretty hardcore! I haven't exactly found one that I'm necessarily into yet but I guess it's just me. I may not understand their music and their sound might not be my cup of tea but I am trying to approach it with an open mind. So if any of you happens to be a fan of theirs and can recommend me any song of theirs that I should probably check out..I'm all ears =)

it's been a week since the passing of the great McQueen, as the fashion world might still continue to mourn over his death, one begins to question the fate of the Alexander McQueen brand. Even though some sources stated that the McQueen business will continue despite the founders suicide, question is will anyone truly be able to continue on his legacy? and even equipped with a strong design team will it actually be able to live up to the brands well known high standards from its predecessors? I know it might seem early to be discussing this and some may feel that it's a bit inappropriate considering the circumstances but I just can't help but wonder. The brand itself was built upon his brilliant vision and strong image, I feel that this is his legacy and it would be devastating to see it plummet in the future. I guess only time will tell but I do hope that they'll be able to do him justice and make him proud. Well enough of my two cents :)
At this point, I refuse to mourn instead I'd prefer to remember him by celebrating his life through all the things he has contributed to the fashion world and just be grateful to have such an influential figure during our era.
"RIP Lee Alexander McQueen"

Dark Side of the Moon is my favorite Pink Floyd album, you should definitely listen to it, it's great! Make sure you listen to the whole album in order though, it's definitely that sort of album
