I could crack a joke here, but mental illness isn't anything to joke about. I wish her well in the years to come. Besides, I was raised Catholic and that does a number on people.

I had no idea about Sinead O'Connor's conversion. Just bewildering, after her stance against the Pope and the way that traditional Islam is even more repressive of women's rights than Catholicism. But, yeah, as you say, adidasss, mental health issues so....
______________
Also completely new to me was the curious story of Father Yod. Thanks, Psy-Fi. Of course, after checking out your link, the first thing I did was to look for some music from Ya Ho Wha 13. This was the first track that turned up:-



Much better than I expected, tbh: a rocking jam with some raw vocals, this could have come from a Can album.

I wonder how devotional the song is? As always with EJ, I'm so focused on his guitar licks, his words roll off my mind like water off a duck's back.
I'm that way with most music if there's guitar in it, but yeah Erics absolutely silky smooth tone and playing are total ear honey. I was listening to him so much I started to sound like him at times. This was when I was playing quite a bit in the late 90's, and in a few different bands. I had the same thing happen with Satch, so I had to give them a rest.

Another is John Mclaughlin. His Mahavishnu Orchestra projects were heavily inspired by the teachings of his guru Sri Chinmoy, and The Inner Mounting Flame is a testament to that, and if you're looking for devotional tunes then his collaboration with Carlos Santana is a good example. I bought this album (CD) when I was in Amsterdam many years ago:

I also have a personal journey to the guru mountain-ish kinda thing, but I didn't physically go anywhere: I once took peyote and tried to shove my guitar into my 8-track player thinking it would help me play better. It did not.

Yes, I can believe that as a guitarist you sometimes need to step away from your favourite influences to preserve your own take on music, Plankton.

That album is right on topic for the thread! I borrowed it (vinyl) from a friend years ago, but never really took to it, tbh.

HaHa! Never available in England, afaik, but peyote sounds like it is pretty powerful stuff.

Thanks, Marie! Perhaps you'll find this story from the same era interesting too:-
_________________

Back in the day, any band wanting tv air-time had to mime to their songs - even the mighty Beatles were obliged to do the same. Here’s Fleetwood Mac going through the motions, fronted by a very young-looking Jeremy Spencer:-.



Despite his carefree appearance in that video clip, there were troubling days ahead for JS: ego clashes and other probs that brought his membership with Fleetwood Mac to a very abrupt end in 1971. His moment of enlightenment seems to have come with all the speed of a good old biblical conversion, like St.Paul on the road to Damascus, though for JS it was on the road to an L.A. bookshop.
Perhaps, Psy-Fi style, the story is best told in a wiki link:- https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jeremy_Spencer

How did JS sound after he had joined The Children of God? His first album after his conversion was the 1972 album, Jeremy Spencer and The Children, which tbh I haven’t listen to completely. Still, on the basis of this song, he has moved on from what was a rather slavish devotion to the style of Elmore James in his Fleetwood years. He’s also picked up some new topics to sing about:

The same with me. I mean I try to understand where the artist is coming from, but quite often it's hard to understand unless you're actually the artist that went through those emotions and life experiences. Those type of songs aren't as universally palatable to most. I just couldn't get into it. Maybe down the road I will.

Yes, me too! I'm going to wait until I retire or achieve nirvana, depending which comes first.

Ray Davies – The Kinks

Condition: Bipolar Disorder
A lot of things are well known about The Kinks, particularly that they wrote brilliant songs and that brothers Ray Davies and Dave Davies don’t get along very well. However, it’s not quite as well known that Ray Davies suffers from bipolar disorder.

He has also attempted suicide at least once. “I’d just come offstage and sunk a bottle of downers because I wanted to kill myself,” he said in an interview. “Then I changed my mind. I was dressed as a dandy, it might have looked like a clown to everyone else. But even clowns can have bad days.”

Can't say I've ever heard of faith-based bipolar disorders.
Is there a church (and non-church) located somewhere?
