A part of me wondered if we would ever see the day. She literally just welcomed the new Prime Minister. This morning the news was that she had "health issues" and honestly I did not think anything of it. 96 years old. Pretty damn impressive to say the least.

Can you imagine all the famous people/celebs she has met, pretty much every exceptional human of the last 70 years!?! Classy and dedicated lady who I believe contributed to the peace and prosperity of her country - despite some bratty kids.
Here's a cool 2005 photo of her with some all-time great British Rock guitar gods, Jeff Beck, Eric Clapton, Jimmy Page and Brian May:

Never understood people's infatuation with the royal family. They have never done anything for me, and Im not British.

I think that the most mind boggling stat (for me at least) was that of the 17 (If I recall the number correctly) Prime Minister's she swore in during her 70 years as Queen, the 1st Prime Minister she swore in was Winston Churchill!

"God save the Queen
The fascist regime
They made you a moron
A potential H bomb
God save the Queen
She ain't no human being
There is no future
In England's dreaming
Don't be told what you want, you want
And don't be told what you want to need
There's no future, no future
No future for you
God save the Queen
We mean it, man
We love our Queen
God saves
God save the Queen
'Cause tourists are money
And our figurehead
Is not what she seems
God save history
God save your mad parade
Oh lord God, have mercy
All crimes are paid
When there's no future, how can there be sin?
We're the flowers in the dustbin
We're the poison in your human machine
We're the future, your future
God save the Queen
We mean it, man
We love our Queen
God saves
God save the Queen
We mean it, man
There is no future
In England's dreaming
No future
No future
No future for you
No future
No future
No future for me

No future
No future
No future for you
No future
No future for me"

Too bad they couldn't play their guitars...
The more things change, the more they stay the same. The whole album was great...

Well, Sid Vicious certainly could not play bass. But lead guitarist Steve Jones and drummer Paul Cook were really good.
"Never Mind the Bollocks" arguably one of the best 10 rock albums of all time.

"Right now, heh, heh, heh, heh Driving Distorted Guitars #
I am an Antichrist
I am an anarchist
Don't know what I want but I know how to get it
I want to destroy passersby
'Cause I, I wanna be anarchy
No dog's body
Anarchy for the U.K. it's coming sometime and maybe
I give a wrong time, stop a traffic line
Your future dream is a shopping spree
'Cause I, I wanna be anarchist
In the city.....
Many ways to get what you want?
I use the best, I use the rest
I use the N.M.E
I use anarchy
'Cause I, I wanna be anarchy
The only way to be
Is this the M.P.L.A?
Or is this the U.D.A?
Or is this the I.R.A?
I thought it was the U.K
Or just another country...
Another Count from (can't understand the word, butt it's got to be a Vlad the Impaler reference.
I wanna be anarchy
And I wanna be anarchy
And I wanna be anarchist

Yes, it was, no question about it. The set the stage for The Clash and the punk rock revolution. The Clash "Lost in a Super Market"
The SP wrote about not being able to find jobs because (not sure why) butt they were the bad boys of Rock and some of them burned out, butt never faded away.

If Great Britton had left us alone after we beat them down in the 1770's that would be fine. Butt, they kept on being ###@@#### %%%.

Yep
