Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds – The Weeping Song
Live at Dresden, June 21, 2009 (corrected on edit)
Aww, Nick’s a prince: “Blixa? Well, he went away. He went away about five years ago. And this song… (unintelligible audience member response)… I know, it’s…well that’s kind of you to say, sir. But this is for Blixa Bargeld. This is always for Blixa Bargeld.”

TOUR STORY ARCHIVES: Warren Ellis on Blixa Bargeld
Warren is a bit of a wildman on tour, or at least he used to be. I forgot where I heard this story but I’m pretty it was Warren’s personal account. One night he was so drunk he fell through a glass table in a hotel lobby. Blixa Bargeld happened to be walking by and found him. Blixa proceeded to pick Warren up and carried him up to his room, only to find that Warren had lost his keycard. Warren said Blixa put him on the floor, made sure he was okay, then went back down to get the manager, who opened the door. There were no details about Warren’s injuries, just that he appreciated his former bandmate’s heroics.
