Wow...this year seems to be extra bad with movie stars, artist and famous musicians passing away.

Gene Wilder....total shock there. I had no idea that he was 83, let alone that he had Alzheimer's. :(

Terrible day in the world of sports. This morning, the news broke that 24 year old MLB star Jose Fernandez was killed in a boating accident. Tonight, word has come out that golf legend Arnold Palmer has passed at 87.

Charmain Carr, the original Liesl from the film "The Sound of Music" just passed away, last week.
She was the last of the Von Trapp children to be cast. The one who sings "16 Going on 17."

In the film's main poster, Carr is between Andrews and Christopher Plummer, there.

Very tragic loss with regards to that young man - and with a pregnant GF to boot. :(

And Arnold...man, enough can't be said about what a class act he was and what he did for the game of golf. The true meaning of a legend, right there.

Some biggies over the past few days for me (including Steve Dillon, the co-creator of "Preacher" comic), and Kevin Meaney.

but this one hits hard, as I am a huge fan of Pete, and his attitude of "no F's to give"

R.I.P. Pete Burns:

Just found out, Sharon Jones just passed away last Friday. :(

Sharon Lafaye Jones (May 4, 1956 – November 18, 2016) was an American soul and funk singer. She was the lead singer of Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings, a soul and funk band based in Brooklyn, New York. Jones experienced breakthrough success relatively late in life, releasing her first record when she was 40 years old. In 2014, Jones was nominated for her first Grammy, in the category Best R&B Album, for Give the People What They Want.


One of her best songs still being played on the radio, is "One Hundred Days - One Hundred Nights."

Can't believe it. :(

It's been 25 years, since Freddie Mercury passed away.

Wow, do I feel old.

^ No, I'm ancient. You're just old. Get it right. :wink:

They're also going to be doing (on the radio here) a little retrospective of Freddie's career, etc.
