I listened to some of René Berg's stuff on yt.

I found him via Andy McCoy/Hanoi Rocks.

I knew his name for ages, because I heard he recorded his solo album in 1992 with Rat Scabies and Paul Gray (from The Damned).

Now Paul Gray posted this today on his FB:

Here's a blast from the past! Circa 1990, if my memory serves me correctly, with my superb flame-maple Overwater bass - I'm told it was a prototype and I've not seen another quite like it, so it may well have been, who knows...well someone on here, probably! It was fabulously punchy with a nice growl but weighed a ton and I eventually sold it on, altho' of course it's now filed under "basses I wish I still had"...lol.
This was taken at a studio in Oxfordshire when I was recording dear old Rene Berg's solo album, 'The Leather, the Loneliness..." alongside Rat Scabies and the marvellous and the much-missed Bernie Torme on guitar - we even did a one-off gig together at The Marquee that was as chaotic as it was fun. It's still available on Amazon and there's bits and bobs of Youtube which are well worth a listen, altho it seems to have gone from Spotify - it was / is a proper down 'n dirty rock'n roll album and great fun to play on!
Rene was a really lovely chap but at the time seemed a bit of a lost soul and suffered from pretty bad bouts of depression - he passed away in 2003 aged just 45, poor fella - and had stints with various nefarious outfits including Hanoi Rocks and Herman Brood before going solo. I remember driving him in my old Brooklands Green MGB GT (wish I still had that too!) to his flat above a petrol station somewhere in east London after a rehearsal one night - there were no curtains, the cupboards were bare except for a half-empty bottle of whisky and the stink of fumes permeated everywhere. I was weighing up the odds of crashing there for the night when he suddenly appeared brandishing an air rifle and started shooting at random objects in the room, laughing hysterically...after which I perhaps wisely made my excuses and left. Well, what would you have done?!

Very interesting that he called Hanoi Rocks "nefarious"

That René Berg album is truly good. There are also some crazy good live shows that René did (under different band names) with Nasty Suicide and some usual suspects in the late 80s in London clubs that are also really good

Another song from The Rolling Stones' upcoming album has just been released. Stevie Wonder on piano, Lady Gaga doing guest vocals. Amazing that they're doing this in their '80s.

RIP Geordie Walker.

Great band in the early 80s.

the instrumental for "hard out here" is so good that you can add different vocal/melody lines and it will not only work but sound great

It started with me listening to Walk Like An Egyptian when it popped up in my Facebook stream. It was just one of those songs from my childhood. And then the FB algorithm started to send me more songs by The Bangles, including Hazy Shade of Winter. Being a big Simon and Garfunkel fan I had to listen to that one, too.

Hah! My daughters listened a lot to Ava Max about a year ago. Suffice to say, I am very fed up with her.
