One plays drums, another touch
low two-stringed ...

... And the other plays two saxophones
at a time ...

Together we are Morphine and have a sound
unique, as they are to see ...

Under with slide, saxophone
and battery ...?

What the fuck is that?

It is "low rock" ...
"Fuck rock" actually ...

... So call ...

... From the bottom
Room ...

I hear a voice crying ...

Under two strings,
baritone sax ...

... And battery ...



Really?

Those guys could have done
with an accordion, banjo and pipes ...

And thus achieve the sound
most distinctive in music ...

Come a little closer,
have something to say ...

You knew what you were getting into
if you went to a concert of Morphine ...

You see, I met a demon named
"Good" ...

And since I met that demon
I'm not the same ...

And I feel good now,
I have to say ...

I think it's time
like this ...

... a Good, Good, Good,
Good girl!

Critics across the country
mention his latest album "Yes" ...

... As one of the best in1993,

Tonight from Boston,
presenting "Cure for Pain" ... Morphine

The mystique of Mark really
made the presence ...



... And the music of the band
was even more powerful ...

What you saw and thought: Who is this
out kind of time and place?

It could be the future, could be
last ...

No matter how close we were,
there were many things in your life ...

... I know ...

It's coming to me ...

Yes, it's coming to me ...

There is a fascinating contradiction
between ...

... How quiet it was and how much
people felt connected to him ...

I know some people ...

... wants to make change ...

You really have to dig
deep ...

If you want to know about
Morphine ...

... You will not be able to make a
Rolling Stone ...

... And just read about how it was
spend a night with him ...

And since I met that demon
I was no longer the same ...

One can not read a biography
500 pages ...

... On the life of Mark
or your family ...

Good, Good, Good,
Good girl!

- The leader of Morphine ...
- The singer of the band Morphine ...

- ... He suffered a fatal heart attack
last July3 ...

... While playing at a festival
rock in Italy ...

CURE FOR PAIN
The story of Mark Sandman

I have not seen any other bassist
do what he did ...

Unfortunately I think he ...

... Mark left this planet ...

... Very prematurely and before
that really ...

... Is established as
an influence for all.

It was not until he died ...

... I started to wonder
what kind of guy was ...

... And seemed to be a man
for real.

LEAST THREE FOUR
The story of a mother

People want to know how things were,
family relationships ...

Always liked the family ...

He was the eldest of four boys ...

Hand to hand over the line
of life ...

... luckily
knots remain firm ...

(ROGER SUFFERED Cerebral Palsy)
Silhouettes of two climbing ...

... climbing a rope on fire ...

(ROGER'S LIFE AS HIMSELF
Noticeable, IT WAS NOT EASY)

Trapped in a room,
in a fortress ...

(JONATHAN, OUR SON OF MEDIUM)
... Running our air ...

(... WAS POPULAR ...)
A few seconds more and we will be free ...

(... I WAS SO BRIGHT AND ANXIOUS ...)

(HE NEVER SO WE PRESSED
MARK AS)

With Jonny we did not have
to worry so much ...

... It was always with Mark,
always concerned about Mark ...

... Angry with Mark,
furious with Mark ...

"What are we going to do about Mark?"

It was uncomfortable, not pleasant,
feared for him ...

... Plus we had three other children ...

Mark loved us unconditionally
to all ...

... But I thought I did not have
follow any rules ...

... Or convention ...

I thought I was being creative,
who was an artist ...

... That this was their right,
and we had to keep quiet ...

I told him he could play the
weekends, or evenings ...

... And you should consider a job
really during the day ...

He did not like at all.

So we gave him a choice:

You could get a job ...

... Or we could help you find
a university that accepts ...

... Or you would have to leave.

So he was ... in the middle of
a blinding snowstorm ...

(THE REAL ADVENTURES
MARK START)

For six or seven years only
news we received were postcards.

He lived for a time in a
abandoned cabin ...

We knew it was in the
Gold Nugget Saloon ...

I do not know how I lived there ...

... But must have been horrible.

I remember getting
a postcard or two ...

... From Alaska ...

... When I worked as a fisherman ...

He was in San Francisco
and elsewhere ...

But you ...

You speak my language ...

- You went fisherman?
- I was a fisherman for a year ...

- Professionally?
- Professionally.

- And this was before you were
a professional musician ...

- Right.

(EN1972 LIVED IN NORTHWEST)

Worldwide, wherever
you go ...

... nobody understands me, nobody knows
what I mean ...

Then he was in Central ...

He spent time in Belize ...

... And then dropped to
South America ...

... And so ...
Where did you lose your passport?

- In Macchu Picchu.
- In Macchu Picchu.

You speak my language ...

You speak my language ...

In Central America he worked collecting
fungi and marijuana ...

... Something related to fungi
and marijuana ...

... I do not know ...

All that ended because
wanted to form a band ...

He wanted to establish himself as a musician ...

... That wrote us.

His whole adventure was so strange
for us ...

... We could not believe it.

You speak my language ...

Spunk, spirit is needed,
intelligence to do something ...

... And he was on a quest
as did all that ...

But he became ill in Brazil
why he came home ...

A FEW YEARS LATER

He played in various groups ...

In many groups ...

... Hundreds ... and all of them
left something ...

We built the instrument I played,
but Mark already had theirs before ...

... And was a two-string bass,
tuned in LA ...

... And also had a guitar version
that, and I started playing ...

... And then disarm the box,
change strings ...

... Tried different calibers,
experimenting with tension ...

He shared with us a lot
technical information about it ...

And Mark surprised us with this
generosity ...

Not that it was not generous,
but was very quiet ...

Generously allowed me to live with him,
it was something great ...

And in the midst of all this,
started jamming ...

Making songs, and began to develop
a way to do ...

That is, there are guys who pride
to prove fungi or drink much ...

... And nothing else ...

... But the amount he smoked ...

... And the type of grass smoking ...

I smoked a puff of it
and was psychotic for six hours ...

... And he could smoke pot twelve
in one day ...

Entire system was completely
"Rewired" to handle this intensity ...

It was not self-destructive at all ...

He simply looked for the
world a little brighter ...

... And feed their
creativity that ...

Looking bright light
in dark places ...

... I wanted to get in there and play with
poetry and music ...

Seriously, we play on ...

We watch bands and rock bands
and always looking for something different ...

... And this was a good place
where to start something different ...

MARK SANDMAN
Guitar

went into a strange coffee ...

... a place where no
I had heard my name ...

Treat Her Right was the first
where we saw the genius ...

... Mark Sandman.

At first we played
nameless ...

... So we made a list of names,
and one said "I like that" ...

... And Mark liked that because ...

... He thought women
would like ...

(N. T .: "Trear Her Right"
means "Treat her well")

There were always girls around ...

- Where are they going?
- Go back to the bedroom ...

He was striking,
very cool ...

... It was a magnet for looks ...

Do you know? I think he likes,
that's what I think ...

"Great melodies, sound guitar slides
and songs full of accurate lyrics

murderer and a sense of humor, "

At Treat Her Right decided
that if we created our parameters ...

... Then we could be creative
within those parameters ...

... We could force creativity
ourselves.

Treat Her Right called me
attention at first ...

... For what it was battery
who at the time played Billy ...

It was, you know, tuned down,
very simple ...

... But in a way
was crude ...

... And that somehow sounded
to blues, but it was something else.

One of the parameters we set
was that each ...

... Be able to find their function
in the band itself ...

... And nobody directed anyone
in what we did ...

Billy and I were in another band ...

... Before Morphine ...

It was called Treat Her Right ...

"Treat her well" as they say ...

- ... In some places ...
- Very wise.

Yes, a vital rule ...

I asked politely:
"Can I buy you a drink?"

You know, I think he likes me,
that's what I think ...

I think he likes,
that's what I think ...

One night I was out ...

... And he looked at me ...

... And then there was me
chasing ...

... For a couple of months, I think,
Right?

I was not very responsible ...

... And I think he liked.

He liked the challenge ...

Sabine initially had no idea
if that was his first love, doubted ...

... Until something happened one day
at a breakfast table.

You've been doing rock from
some time ago ...

Why this is different from what
before?

- Because it's good.

I really started playing
bass on Treat Her Right ...

... But there was a time played
less and produced increasingly ...

I was also involved with the
8-track recorder ...

... With which we recorded six
nine songs ...

- You were very interested.
- Very interested, yes ...

We did a couple of tests and told them:
"I do not need a bass player ..."

"... I think it will be interesting
if you do not have one ... "

I think he likes me ...

This album was distributed
in New England ...

... Has been chosen now
by a British company also ...

He wanted to do something different,
and did not want to work in an office.

"Delicious, mixing the blues of Chicago
and Delta, spiritual, folk and country "

I remember as ...

... Some big brothers
Rock n 'Roll.

- Demon Records.
- Demon Records, yes ...

They released albums Johnny Copeland
and Robert Cray ...

... And many other groups also
of us have signed with them ...

... With Demon Records ...

"Treat Her Right treated well the blues"

It was like a collection of
rebel outcasts, somehow ...

"Treat Her Right launches debut album"

We said, "Yeah, sure,
this will not happen ... "

But the days we were asked more
songs ...

... Prepared a new cover
and got the green light ...

- And the check was in the mail!

We were strangers to our
families ...

We wanted to do something different ...

People loved him,
they were all together ...

And he told me: "I going great,
I have a great band ... "

"I'm gonna be a star
rock someday ... "

By this time we were
approaching thirty ...

... The clock was moving ...

Thank you very much, we will call
our friend Dana Colley ...

... For a couple of songs
who need their baritone sax ...

We have a microphone
for him and all ...

So, thanks for coming to see us
in the middle of the afternoon ...

... But Billy went to bed late last night,
and we all have things to do.

I remember the last time ...

... That played at Jack's,
that is the end of the street ...

They were lit and lasted
all night ...

Treat Her Right ...

... Were on stage on fire
coming from nowhere ...

They separated, but left
all in flames, it was ...

And then he started with Morphine,
he ...

... He was not bitter ...

... He was not crying ...

He started another project ...

At that time Mark and I
started jamming ...

He invited me to his apartment in
Lewis and Cambridge Street ...

I played my bass on a rope ...

... And he played his baritone sax.

I have a head with wings ...

I have a head with wings ...

I have ...

... a head with wings ...

We seek a drummer ... no, wait ...
look for a name ...

... Then a drummer and then a show ...

No, we first seek a name,
then a show and then the drummer ...

And you would not believe how everything looks
from up here ...

I have a head with wings ...

I think it was in late '90
when I started feeling ...

... I had problems with my
joints ...

... ... Stiffly

When Morphine started
do concerts ...

... And to record "Good" ...

Basically Jerome recorded
most ...

... But I played some songs ...

... And then Jerome started
feel sick ...

And the only thing keeping my head ...

... attached to the floor ...

And I thought that was the beginning
the end for me on Morphine ...

... They kept playing
and bringing more people ...

... Which made perfect sense to me ...

... It was as it should be ...

I have a head ...

A head with wings ...

I was going to record a while,
and Mark recording all ...

... And was always ideas ...

Dana was actually a friend
was a "roadie" during a tour ...

... And he used to play sax with us
Occasionally (with Treat Her Right).

I was a big fan of Dana,
and always wanted ...

... Have a band only with him ...

... So we did ...

We were reckless, did not
afraid to touch an unknown song ...

... Well, if the riff work,
simply were still on.

And at that time the seal
Rykodisc ...

... It was putting its catalog ...

... And heard "Good" ...

... Or demos of "Cure for pain"
and they offered ...

... A distribution ...

I cross my fingers and pray to God ...

... touch wood and I pray with
all that I have ...

Cargo my bow with a
cannonball ...

... and I see the writing on the wall ...

Then comes to me and says:
"Well, I'll need a manager ..."

"... Because this is more
difficult than I thought ... "

"I will not be able to do it alone ..."

"... And I need your help ..."

Where do I go, what to do, who to salute
and who hug? Always by your side ...

Forever by your side ...

Mary, do not you call me?

He did not want to hire a
great manager of New York or L.A.

He said: "I do not want a large
manager of New York ... "

"... I do not want a great manager L.A.,
I never answer the phone ... "

"... And when you no longer want to attend
speak, so I want you ... "

On tour in the United States, Morphine
is a "pain free" experience ...

... As fans we interviewed ...

A few weeks after starting
and we sold all the tickets ...

... In advance ...

And he began to become ...

... A real "buzz" they said:
"By God, you have to see this band."

And then they were going to see live ...

... And flew their heads ...

... And were three guys on stage ...

... Without guitars and making a
sound amazing ...

The combination baritone sax
and bass is simply delusional ...

Keep both hands against
the door ...

I liked what the two saxes
at the same time, it was amazing ...

Where do I go, what to do, who to salute
and who hug?

I never heard anything
it sounded so ...

And so it began
to take off, so ...

... We knew we had something good.

When we went to Europe,
was the same ...

... People like crazy ...

... We filled where we were going ...

Mary, not going to ...?
?Mary, not going to ...?

Somehow we were ready
for that, but we did not expect ...

... When it happened,
It was like "woooow" ...

"SUPER MORPHINE
POWERFUL ROCKEROS "

"ONLY YOU SAY YES"

"A sensual sound only"

"Roaring, but lightweight, types
bewitching common sorrows "

Every night ...
every night ...

Good evening everyone ...
Welcome to our show ...

Every night at eleven o'clock ...

Every night ...
every night ...

Every night at eleven o'clock ...

Every night at eleven o'clock ...

To me it was like, "My God,
here is someone who has taken ... "

"... Great things ..."

"... A Ferlinghetti, Ginsberg and Kerouac ..."

"... And he has brought to this ..."

To all of you: Morphine ...

And those three stray cats
They were so hard ...

How has it fared on tour
so far, in the United States?

- The kill ...
- They were killed ...

Every night ...
every night ...

Billy and Dana and Mark,
together the three ...

... Had an amazing chemistry ...

Now, with bass, sax and drums ...

... One would expect it to sound
like shit ...

... But somehow, with our
following guests, sounds fantastic ...

Ladies and gentlemen, that
Morphine was ...

We return once live
from Las Vegas ...

Are they looking to have more money
to record better ...?

No ... not really want
more money to burn ...

We want more money to dry ...

The word "morphine" comes
of "Morpheus" ...

... Who is the god of sleep ...

... And that we liked ...

We know you play low
two strings slide ...

- Was it your idea?
- Yes.

Writing songs ...

... With that low, you know,
that way ...

... Was something quite unique ...

... That distinguished him ...

There are many instruments with
one or two strings in the world ...

And it's interesting because
each string has all the notes ...

... And is not a limitation
at all ...

... When you get used.

I met Mark in December ...

Mid-December ...
1993 ...

... In the west of France ...

It was the first time I
made music out of the country ...

... The first time he touched
in Europe ...

I remember well, I was
attending the press ...

... I was out, it made a
terrible cold ...

... I was giving interviews
and interviews ...

... And suddenly I heard a sound ...

... Was THE sound ...

... And I said, "What the fuck ..."

"... Is that?"

The Blues Traveler called and said:
"I love that album ..."

"How did you do? What happened?"

We received calls in the middle
Recording saying:

"How do they get that sound?"

And he'd say, "It's a low
two strings played with slide ... "

And they replied: "Ah, well ...
I can not do that ... "

It is much easier with
only two strings ...

... Because with more than two
strings ...

... It is complicated to make a whole note ...

This is a type thing Mark ...

It is very interesting
what he had done with low ...

I have to admit, when
the band first came out ...

... Cost me understand ...

I tried to relate
what I did when I played ...

Because, generally ...

... From the old days ...

... All under rock n 'roll ...

... One puts the calibration ...

... Some friend delayed ...

... You can not touch anything ...

I started with a rope ...

... Because it was easier,
and after I graduated ...

... I ascended two strings ...

... And now it feels pretty
Full ...

Okay, but bears recognized
may well say:

"I need my four strings ..."

No, not really ...
one reaches ...

- A single?
- Yes ...

This is simply a
extravagance of me ...

What I do with guitar
and what he did to the low ...

... Was ... is connected ...

... It is ...

Requires a lot of participation
Billy and Dana ...

... Make this format
work ...

... Because we can not
support in traditional roles ...

... Of a band due to
instruments ...

Mark arming the song list
the concerts, and there were nights ...

... When I looked titles
and said, "What is that?"

And he said: "Remember that riff
we played two weeks ago? "

And you answer: "We were playing
every day, there were many riffs ... "

"Ah, now you remember ..."

And then he began and one
I was ...

We tried to capture that
of jamming with friends in a garage ...

... Or in a fire ...

... Have that freedom and energy
are not trying ...

... To force something to happen
outside what happens in that moment ...

... And to capture it on tape ...

... Trying to demystify
the idea of ??recording ...

You play this instrument,
but the type of sax using ...

... It is quite unusual for contemporary music ...

You hear it in the rock over
what you think ...

Prince used quite baritone sax ...

Los Lobos use it, Little Richard
used two baritone saxophones ...

I think it's the most "rock"
all saxophones ...

Give a dark and very deep sound ...

Dark, rich and very warm
Dana hands Colley ...

He was very intelligent
on his part to keep the trio ...

... So the bass could be
so prevalent ...

They were in front of40,000
people, how do they feel?

It felt good, had
good people there, I could see it ...

We were in Europe, Japan ...

... Throughout the US, Canada ...

What site were
better received?

He was very good in
everywhere ...

Good morning, Belgium,
is an honor to be here ...

I met about100 meters
her city is beautiful ...

We are learning to say
"Welcome" ...

... "Thank you very much" at any
language ...

In Spanish?

In Spanish, Portuguese, Norwegian ...

... Italian, any language, Japanese ...

Many things we see in you
60s,50s, jazzy sound ...

... And also black cinema.
Are you okay with that?

- "Film Noir"?
- Yes ...

Well, I think we have incorporated
some of those elements ...

... In our music ...

We incorporate many things,
not only music ...

... But books we've read,
movies we've seen ...

... People we know,
stories we've heard ...

... TV ...

He never went to Hollywood,
rather the reverse ...

... Have asked several permits
to use songs in movies ...

... People who wanted this music
for your movies ...

"Little Children"

"Wild Things"

"Get Shorty"

"What happened last night?"

"Gloria," "Beavis and Butthead"
"The Sopranos"

One of the proposals I had ...

... Was Dreamworks, who had just
launch a record label ...

Dreamworks started working ...
with people from Disney ...

... With David Geffen ...

... And Katzenberg ...

They were interested in creating
one multimedia ...

If you had to write the band
sound of a movie,

What manager would you choose?

How about Robert Altman?

Is it available?

I suppose, must be
open to any proposal ...

Bob, call me ...

The people who ran Dreamworks
Records was fantastic ...

... Respected, recognized ...

... Executives who were much
better than others ...

There were only a handful of bands
I thought ...

... Like a wonderful statement
principles for the label ...

... Especially young ...

... With whom you want to define
who you are as a brand ...

And one of those bands
Morphine was ...

Morphine! We'll be back ...

There is a flag that I want to wave,
a mountain where nailing ...

always walked in mine ...

Nothing will shake,
nothing will make me change ...

Here's how I am and always
I am he ...

Mile High ...

Mile High ...

He was not someone from Hollywood
It would become a "kind of Hollywood".

It just was not, you know?

He loved Massachussetts, I think
really had something with the place ...

Came home, even if it had been
traveling the world ...

... Even with what he liked to travel
the world ...

... Believe that their city was
something symbolically ...

... Very important to him ...

I'm free now ...

... to direct a movie or sing
a song or write a book about you ...

... thinking I'm so interesting
and that great ...

... when in fact I'm fucked
and ... is a waste

... burn these walls around me ...

... flexible like a heartbeat,
we do not like to talk ...

Do not talk, more or less
for a week ...

I'm sorry, is that
explain hurts ...

... something happens that makes me
twisted guts ...

I have guilt, I have fear,
I regret ...

I am a panic,
I'm a sucker tremendous ...

I was honest, I swear ...

The last thing I want to do ...

I was honest, I swear ...

The last thing you want to do
is cause you pain ...

A FEW YEARS BEFORE

"It was ill in Brazil,
why he came home ... "

At the end of his ...

... Weather in Brazil
and then in Alaska ...

... Far away, he returned ...

Boston ... ...

He had an intestinal disease
which will affect the kidneys ...

... Was very serious ...

Wanted all we were
agreed to return to Boston ...

I do not know if returned because their parents
They asked him to ...

... Or what, but it did.

I was looking our
approval ...

... And died searching, so it happened ...

Both his father and I were
boys at the time of depression ...

... Stability is terribly
important to me ...

... And I saw no stability
what Mark was doing.

He wandered ...
and played music ...

... With their small groups ...

I never saw coming what
was going to his brother Roger ...

"... A call from our doctor ..."

"... We thought we had some parasite ..."

"It is seriously ill ..."

"He suffered severe attacks and gangrene
in the fingers and toes ... "

"We need to disconnect the respirator ..."

"Roger died on November18,1978 ..."

At that point, he and his brother
Jon had become very close ...

What was Mark doing?

"Jon was an accident ..."

"I was traveling to New York (...)
with all expenses paid ... "

"I was at a party and apparently
fell from a window ... "

"It appeared lifeless,
unanswered ... "

"... No movement in his
big brown eyes ... "

"No smile, no movement
of any kind ... "

"The machines went out Wednesday
March5,1980, He was23, "

"It had been only16
months since the death of Roger ... "

When Jonny died, Mark was
terribly destroyed ...

He could not stand as it had
made with the death of Roger ...

It was really sad and really
snapped ...

... Very much ...

I suffered for it ...

"I feel sad sad life
we could have had ... "

"Growing old together, being uncles,
I wonder the 'whys' ... "

"... The reasons that even
I want to know ... "

Everything was worse than many
ways at home ...

... Especially since the death
Jon, because he had ...

... A great sense of humor
and always making jokes ...

... When everything was tense
and everything became brighter ...

It was great to have him here ...

... Family ...

When he died he left a
great void ...

After Jon died ...

... Mark decided he had
to do something with your life ...

... I had to do something special,
it had to be someone special ...

... And that it turned cold ...

He questioned us
I guess rightly ...

... Never heard his music ...

... Or no music, said:

"Music for you is
something that plays in the background ... "

"When I make music,
I want people to listen to my music ... "

"... And my words, what I do".

The things that happened ...

... The death of his brothers,
the relationship with the family ...

He could have an extra push,
an extra commitment ...

It was very difficult to process
the death of his brothers ...

... And once it did,
was on fire ...

... There was no way to stop it,
did what he wanted all along.

Mark was a very private man,
always on guard ...

Some say it was ...

... Cutting, it has been said ...

... Also a bit ...

Shy people tend to be
reserved ...

Mark Sandman was a type
booked ...

... And there were things that were forbidden
and who spoke ...

... When press did.

Mark Sandman ...

... It was a slow person
and laconic ...

He did not like to explain
things too ...

... Liked to talk very slowly ...

... As transgressing all
an interview process ...

- What was it like being in Australia?
- Great ...

- It was very good ...

- They are very friendly people,
seem very happy ...

- Even homicidal maniacs,
they are also happy for what I know ...

- There was a "crazy ax" loose
Sydney when we were there ...

- A murderer with an ax?
- Yes, I used an ax ...

- I was in our hotel ...

- Really?
- Yes.

- They never found ...
- Really?

- So after all
are not so happy there ...

- Well, it was one guy with an ax,
I was not happy ...

- The victim was not very happy ...

I think Mark and I started
to be closest ...

... As brothers substitutes once
Jonny had died and Roger ...

... They were about the age
Billy and mine ...

Jonny played the saxophone, I played the sax ...

... So I think I had
a special relationship there ...

... Of which I was not aware,
until I came across the story of his brothers

I'm not sure he transgressed
an interview process ...

... Just not wanting to answer
things you do not want to answer ...

He never opened, you had to
get to know its history over time.

- Tell us how you feel about music, Mark.
- The music?

The first time did everything he could to
keep record a single word ...

He talked and walked back to me,
using that tone ...

... Under, underground, it seemed
that he was swallowing the words.

So after that first
long interview we had ...

... Were only a handful
questions of mine and nothing more ...

... Recorded on the tape.

It was not until I spoke
with some friends of Mark ...

... Who were older than me ...

... I knew what stories
I had spent with Roger and Jonny ...

One day he gave me the saxophone
his brother ...

... Wanted me to have it,
to touch him ...

I preferred mine, and I said
"Thank you very much ..."

"... But I feel more comfortable
with my own instrument ... "

That was the first time I heard
he had a brother ...

... And no longer lived ...

- You do that a lot ...
- What?

- That to hide
in your songs ...

Thank you very much to everyone here ...

You, you, you and you ...

Now is the moment of poetry ...

It says ...

One ...

In April of '92 and was
able to play again ...

But, for some reason,
was not the same ...

... Had developed a voltage
in all this ...

... While I was gone.

First of all, Billy Conway
It is our full time drummer ...

... And I think there is much more
unit and is reflected in the record ...

I felt like ...

... You know, the issue was never discussed ...

Sharks patrol these waters ...

Sharks patrol these waters ...

Hey, do not let your fingers
rub the water ...

No sense
discuss anything ...

... So I felt, and I think Mark
so he felt so ...

He might seem cruel and hard ...

... But digging a little
saw that it was not like that at all ...

People thought their image
and his music ...

... Was a mysterious type,
he cultivated that ...

... Somehow in the media ...

Your name, was almost unbelievable
I had that name ...

... Which was really "Sandman"
(Man-sand).

Do not worry about the life
orange day ...

Do not save, not save you ...

Nothing to coast as
fast as you can ...

Nothing like a motherfucker ...

You could get tense,
could be difficult ...

... Wanted things
They were easy ...

... Or whether things done
your way ...

When you suffer many losses
in your family ...

... Feel the urge to autocompadecerte,
or mystify you ...

... Pain somehow ...

... Or just give your worth ...

He had the opposite reaction ...

... Found some relief
in being alive ...

... And do so.

Nothing ...

Nothing, nothing ...

Mark could be the idiot
The world's largest ...

... And I had thousands of
fights with him ...

... And many differences ...

And for a while ...

... I felt a grudge against him ...

Now I do not feel well,
but I felt then ...

... I thought he "do not want to search
places to play ... "

"How does this type for
get recitals? "

"I'm going to hang out with this guy,
to see what happens ... "

He felt that he had risen to me
to get to where I had come ...

Mark was a talented guy,
very funny ...

... But could be a complete
asshole ...

There were a couple of occasions ...

... While working with him ...

... Where he was being so stupid,
I said: "I have to take a break".

Quick as those ships to
the now ...

... always glorious,
the ever present now ...

Served with flowers, fried and cooled
with paper towels, then devoured ...

Do you know? I spent fifteen years of my life
a raft ...

Fifteen years ...

Now I have something to say ...

Stay in those boats
life, people ...

Stay on boats ...

... no death out there,
no death out there ...

Sharks patrol these waters ...

Sharks patrol these waters ...

Do not worry about the life
orange day ...

Do not save,
will not save you ...

Nothing to shore as fast
as you can ...

Nothing ...

Come on, anything ...

When you're in a band with someone
there is much tension ...

It is easy to see ...
Everything you see ...

... A person who only bothers you ...

And he also felt the same about me ...

... Came to say: "How can you be so
I stupid? This is a great idea ... "

... And vice versa ...

They went to Detroit for an event
organized by a radio ...

... A recital for a lot
of people ...

Then he returned with aires
rock-star ...

... So I insulted, I said
is off to hell ...

The point is that many people
I saw a cruel, cold ...

... Inaccessible ...

... But he just
it was quiet ...

... Always waiting for something
that catch your interest ...

His relationship with Billy and Dana ...

... It was beautiful, because
There were three ...

... And he had something called
"Men intertwined" ...

... It was a cartoon
drawn by him ...

... Which dealt with the difficulties
in relationships ...

... Being in a band ...

... And how the three became
a unit ...

... And they were fantastic comic ...

... And then came the whole concept ...

... The concept of how Mark
saw his band ...

... How they were in a "ball" and sometimes
something happened and disarmed ...

... But no matter what happened,
were once again a single skein ...

... And so was actually their relationship
Billy and Dana ...

I think his musicians were
their "blood brothers" ...

... They were his family,
and the community of musicians ...

... It was his family ...

... And it was home
who always came back ...

... A family of musicians,
artists, creators ...

... And he healed them,
loved ...

And now comes a song
called "Cure for pain".

Well, we are beginning
to say goodbye, ladies and gentlemen ...

... The encores begin now,
thank you very much ...

We are very grateful,
this has been fantastic ...

Thank you ...

For you ...

You know?

I do not know ...

A song called "Cure for pain"
It reads ...

Where ...?

... is the ritual?

Tell me where ...

... where is the taste ...

Where ...?

... is the sacrifice?

Tell me where ...

... where is the faith ...

Someday ...

... will
a cure for pain ...

That will be the day ...

... you pull my drugs ...

... when they find
a cure for pain ...

Goodnight, thank you very much ...

Thank you ...

Good night ...

He told us the acclaimed
it was as a musician ...

... Wanted us to see him, I listened
and invited us to go ...

He invited us to his concerts ...

We never went, we felt it was not
for us ...

... And then it turned out it was true.

Good Morning ...

We went out last night ...

... Leave until very late ...

- We realize.

We never gave credit
by being a musician ...

... And in that sense not feel
anything about it ...

His father was a businessman
and Mark was lousy for business ...

Could be creative, in fact it was ...

... But it was lousy,
and I think his father ...

... You could not relate to him
at that level ...

When we were doing ...

... More intimate and committed ...

... I knew his family idea ...

... Became more important to him ...

... Especially her biological family,
did much to be more at home ...

... With his mother and father ...

He lived a little more conventionally
me, somehow ...

... To relate somewhat
more with his mother ...

... Invited them to eat
and she ...

... Was moved because the house was
arranged and had a good meal ...

It meant a lot to her,
It was important ...

After reading
memories of his mother, I think ...

... Understand a little better
what happened ...

... As parents to lose
two children ...

I can not imagine how to continue
after that ...

Last night I told a stranger
everything about you ...

He smiled patiently,
skeptical ...

I always knew I'd hit
no matter what you did ...

... and I know you did everything ...

... despite me ...

Despite being unaware of
Mark what he did ...

... Maybe Mark was not very
predisposed to detall?rselos ...

I'm still proud to have met
the short time I met you ...

... grateful to have been a
step in your way ...

... proud to have been part
your illustrious career ...

And I know you did everything ...

... despite me ...

I get it ...

... I think I finally started
to become closer to each other ...

... And it was great to see that,
see a softer side of Mark ...

... I had never seen
hitherto ...

You seemed so close
but so cold ...

For a long time I thought
you were going to come back with me ...

... and that kind of thoughts
They can be so cruel ...

So cruel ...

Once he even said:
"I did it for you, Bob ..."

Ok ...

And I know you did everything ...

... despite me ...

... despite me ...

Palestrina, Italy
The last show

Palestrina is a village
pre-Roman origin ...

... Is a small village in
the top of a mountain ...

It is impossible to get there without
an SUV ...

... Only small vans
4 x4 can get ...

Palestrina is one of the villages
oldest in Italy, more than Rome ...

... Therefore this city
It is very, very old ...

My work with Morphine
and the other bands ...

... Was look to the airport
and bring the festival ...

... And feel
comfortable there ...

Billy, Mark and I discovered
beautiful scenery ...

... And decided to stop a minute ...

... People sat between
trees, sipping a glass of wine ...

We said, "Wow, this is fantastic,
What we did not know this place before? "

There are people from40,45 years ...

... That keeps coming, and people
like me,24 ...

People ...18,19 ...

... Who come to help ...
do not do it for money ...

We do this for pleasure ...

He felt a connection ...

... With these people, so
He decided to go there ...

We appreciate life
community ...

... And we consider ourselves a family ...

I thought they were going to be like
"Star-of-rock" ...

... And instead I found
with happy people, smiling ...

... Very very treatable ...

Mark was very approachable ...

Just what I knew, I already felt
very comfortable with it ...

I was moved by the
enthusiasm of these people ...

... For the love of music,
that seduced ...

He began to speak Italian
right away ...

... And throughout the trip
Airport to Palestrina ...

... Was "How do you say this?
And how do you say that? "

"What is this place?
How is the festival? "

"Tell me, tell me ..."

He wanted to know how he lived
people here ...

He wanted her we counted
about this life ...

We told him all about
this life ...

He told us that he had worked
as a fisherman in Alaska ...

... All those things.

By the end of the day we knew
everything about it ...

I remember doing more than30 degrees
as a soundcheck ...

I remember the bass and drums
sounding at once ...

She sounded like shit ...

... And I approach the stage and see Billy
sitting next to ...

... And he asked: "What are you doing here?
Who is playing the drums? "

Electric cigarette, hotel, rock n roll,
disco, super sex ...

We entered the stage and see
Mark sitting on the bank ...

... Doing ...

Playing bass and drums
at the same time ...

... Sitting on the bank ...

Discoteque, super electric sex ...

We thought, "Wow, this guy is ready,
wants to play ... "

"This is great, it's exciting,
is happy ... "

There were many people on this hill ...

It was full, people sat
everywhere ...

Come on and give me super-sex ...

Come on and give me super-sex ...

And it was an amazing night ...

... Very hot ...

We had already played seven songs
and started with "Super sex".

I just remember being on the left
the stage ...

... And see Mark goes
voiceless ...

Without realizing your problem
in the heart.

He fell on his back, and his
He was hanging low ...

... He touched the ground,
and bass too ...

... And the amplifier made
a coupling ...

I remember leaving the sax on one side
and go there ...

... To yell to hang on ...

... To resist ...

And then the sirens ...

... That's what I remember ...

Five thousand people perplexed ...

The leader of the rock band Morphine,
Mark Sandman ...

... Died of a heart attack
at a concert in the outskirts of Rome.

Sandman, singer and bassist
Trio Boston ...

... Suffered a fatal heart attack
Saturday July3 ...

... While playing at a festival
near Rome, in Italy ...

His death was a shock
for those who knew ...

He was only46 years, you will not know
health problems ...

... And less related
with heart ...

We had the task and challenge
for I tell ...

... Your family ...

His father, his mother, his sister ...

... And ... Sabine

When the truck stopped at home
and there came a guy with a paper ...

... Who asked "Is Sabine?" ...

... Took me a while to absorb
the details and know what had happened ...

When he was on the news,
daily ...

... Information was taken from people
outside our circle ...

... And so people thought it was a
Drug-related death ...

But anyone who knew ...

... Knew that was something
what he did not think at all ...

He had survived and his brothers did not,
so I had no interest in drugs ...

... At that level,
between us there was no doubt ...

... That he was dead for some
heart problem ...

And what happened next was
very important to us ...

Dana Colley ...

... Crying and screaming ...

... To the moon up there ...

... At five o'clock ...

You know ...

... Try to be near him ...

It was his pain ...

... And ours, as far as possible ...

... If we were going was not our ...

And that was what happened,
what we did ...

... Basically ...

Simply ...

... Try to be there for
someone who was living in case ...

... The worst time of his life ...

We were told immediately
what happened ...

and ... I mean ...

... I can not even describe
I was stunned ...

And we did not know what to do ...

The next day, we were in an armchair and
the band was still Queens of the Stone Age ...

... I had never heard of them before ...

But they knew what had happened
while coming from the airport ...

... And when they arrived at the hotel they asked
for us ...

Somehow, immediately
they knew what to say ...

I approached Dana and said,
"What you need to do?"

"You want us to play
or prefer not? "

"Do you need help with something?
?Company? Whatever you want ... "

We said: "They have to play,
it should be ... "

"The show must go on"
more cheesy that sounds ...

... It was the best way to honor him,
Mark wanted to touch like ...

And they ... I did not go on stage ...

... Because they could not stand being there ...

... But I remember being in my room,
listening play ...

... And it sounded as if he had come
the cavalry, the Red Cross ...

It was a breath of air
very exciting ...

I think I never had to strain
both to play ...

... Trying to seek the return
to see how to play better than ever ...

... How to do ...

Do not think we needed
say between us ...

... Just remember ...

... Thinking: "How I can do
this better? "

And I remember thinking, "This is the best
fucking music heard in my life. "

"This is like getting on a Camaro
and step on the throttle ... "

"... As much as possible ..."

"This is what I need
right now ".

I just ... you know ...

... Was so crazy, so
do not want to spend anymore ...

Billy was clear what motivated him,
what was the right thing to do ...

... You had to get up
and move on ...

... And do right by the
memory of our friend ...

Dana Colley, ladies and gentlemen ...

Just want to say something,
have been ten years ...

... And I think I have to
try to say something ...

... In your language ...

What came after Mark died,
was that a close-knit music community ...

... It became more united yet ...

At the funeral of Mark was seeing
his parents, his sister, and understand ...

... That woman was over
three sons buried ...

... What the fuck ...?

You could not even make
to the idea that pain ...

He forced some people ...

... At us with us
and celebrate that we had about ...

... We had a family,
a community to overcome ...

... The fact that you lost ...

Ten years ago we came ...

... Palestrina with Morphine ...

Instead of separate,
we became closer ...

People depending on each other more ...

... Helping to pass what
It was a bad time for all ...

... Everywhere ...

"Mark is gone ..."

Why? Why so much tragedy ...?

?... In a family? It is inconceivable ...

I always thought that one of the things
most striking of his music was ...

... Sorry ...

We knew this was
a special place ...

... But did not know how special
sacred and would end up being ...

Were we surprised by its success?
Yes ...

Were we happy? Yes ...

We were very soprendidos
after he died ...

... See how many magazines and newspapers
talking about him ...

... Praising his career ...

... On which we knew very little ...

His parents did not understand
emotional connections ...

... They were quite disconnected ...

And part of me felt
how Billy and Dana ...

... They approached them
had so much love ...

... With such deference ...

... With such open hearts,
and I thought ...

"These are two guys
They were like brothers to Mark ... "

"It's an opportunity to think
a beautiful bond with these two men ... "

"... Who loved his son ..."

Especially having lost
just three children ...

But it was a ridiculously thought
How romantic ... it occurred to me ...?

?... That something so beautiful could happen?

It is interesting how, over the years,
the different things that people say ...

... And the things one is remembering
in your mind ...

... I think I could never stop thinking
as Joe Strummer once said:

"If you're a musician ..."

"... And you love what you do ..."

"... And your time comes ..."

"... While you're doing what you love,
in a beautiful location, on a beautiful night ... "

"... What better obituary, right?"

When we lost Mark,
you hugged us ...

... And never forget what
They did for us that day ...

So today we're back with
our boys ...

... To sing, to love,
to remember ...

Thank you ...

He had an age between
21 and45 years, and nobody knew ...

... Nobody ever knew
how old Mark ...

Mark Sandman was
Very Dorian Gray ...

You're the night, Lilah ...

... the little girl
lost in the forest ...

You are a fairy tale ...

... the unexplainable ...

He would be very popular now,
with fashion this vampire ...

... If they realized that
he was really a vampire ...

... Had500 years old
when they buried ...

... which keeps
closed curtains ...

I woke up at 6 in the morning
by a thunderstorm from those who ...

... They do ... thunder,
explosions ...

... Really woke me ...

And I can not do
by myself ...

6:15 And my girlfriend called
and told me that Sandman was dead ...

I thought ... well, a lot of people
these things happen ...

... Many people will pass
strange things in those moments ...

I thought that Mark sent me these thunder
to leave saying "Fuck you!"

Hopefully're waiting for me
on your carpet of stars ...

You're the night, Lilah ...

... you're all that we can see ...

... Lilah ...

... you the possibility ...

you one story at a time
bed ...

... keeping the curtains
closed ...

I hope you're waiting for me ...

... because it wont
do for myself ...

I can not do it by myself ...

I can not say much about it,
It's a bit like ...

... Jeff Buckley died
and was pretty hard ...

... Sandman died ...

And it's like ... take3
most original musicians of this generation ...

... And delete them as well ...

At some point as you want
wave a white flag ...

The strange lot, despite
that he was a tough guy ...

I lost a brother ...

He and Sabine were putting
money in the house, they were getting married ...

... He was going to settle, writing a
will, to make contracts with the group ...

... When I returned from the trip,
thing that ever happened ...

Unknown is the world
so old ...

You sound than ever
before I heard ...

... off the map, where
grow wild things ...

... another world is at my door ...

Here I am, standing alone ...

... driving down this
dark road ...

... Lilah, you're my only home ...

... and can not do
by myself ...

you one story at a time
bed ...

... keeping the curtains
closed ...

I hope you're waiting for me ...

... because it wont
do for myself ...

I can not do it by myself ...

Dedicated to the mother of Mark

Do you know what time it is?

Do you know what time it is?

Do you know how late
