‘Sounds of Silence’ …. “Disturbed …. 9-11 …. “!!


~~September 11, 2016~~


“A day that will live in infamy ….”

Never thought there would be another day like that!

The whole world was going about its business that day.

Tragedy struck mid morning.

Reality was changed forever.

The wound is healed, the scars and memories remain, lives go on.

This is a picture that says a thousand words.

Never forget!

~~9-11 Sounds of Silence Tribute~~

Disturbed Rock Band

~~Published on Jul 5, 2016~~

I hear a song and that song evokes an emotion and that emotion in me helped in the creation of this tribute video.

While I wish all of the images were high resolution …. some images of that day were caught with low quality equipment and the images I chose all seemed to fit with how I was feeling. I witnessed the events of this day like many of us did and it changed me forever.

It will always feel fresh in my mind and feel like it happened yesterday. Having experienced such a tragic day …. your outlook on so many world events changes.

It is amazing how divided the world seems right now but how unified we all were after the events of 9/11….

Steve A.


We ALL are ONE!!


At the end of the day …. “Trip down memory lane: The Sound of Silence”!!


~~January 8, 2016~~


I’m not a heavy metal music fan, never have been. However, I came across this cover for The Sound of Silence from Simon and Garfunkel today.

It sure took me down memory lane!

I was coming into my own when this song first came out.

I loved Simon and Garfunkel. As I matter of fact, this LP was one of my favorites.

One I played over and over again.

Listening to this version took me back in time.

I loved this version.

It feels powerful and somewhat angry.

I believe that the lyrics fits the times that we are currently living




Disturbed is an American heavy metal band from Chicago, Illinois. The band comprises vocalist David Draiman, bassist John Moyer, guitarist Dan Donegan, and drummer Mike Wengren. Former band members are vocalist Erich Awalt and bassist Steve Kmak.

Formed in 1994 as Brawl, the band was renamed Disturbed in 1996 after Draiman was hired as the band’s new vocalist.

Classified as a heavy metal or hard rock band, Disturbed is also regarded by some critics as nu metal and alternative metal. When asked about die-hard heavy metal fans not finding Disturbed heavy enough, Draiman at one time stated:

We probably have too much melody going on or we’re not quite as turbulent or caustic. While I really love that type of music, it’s not what we try to do. If we have to place things in context, we’re more hard rock than heavy metal these days.

The secret is that we were never really part of any particular trend, although we definitely benefited from the popularity of what was called nu-metal at the time … We never had the stereotypical attributes that those bands had. We don’t rap; there’s no turntable involved; no fusion in that respect. We play, in my opinion, classic metal.

The Sound of Silence

Hello darkness, my old friend
I’ve come to talk with you again
Because a vision softly creeping
Left its seeds while I was sleeping
And the vision that was planted in my brain
Still remains
Within the sound of silence

In restless dreams I walked alone
Narrow streets of cobblestone
‘Neath the halo of a street lamp
I turned my collar to the cold and damp
When my eyes were stabbed by the flash of a neon light
That split the night
And touched the sound of silence

And in the naked light I saw
Ten thousand people, maybe more
People talking without speaking
People hearing without listening
People writing songs that voices never share
And no one dared
Disturb the sound of silence

“Fools” said I
“You do not know, silence like a cancer grows
Hear my words that I might teach you
Take my arms that I might reach you”
But my words like silent raindrops fell
And echoed
In the wells of silence
