As if that wasn't enough... Joanna Cole, the author of the magic schoolbus stories.

Two of my kids' early years' science education experiences :(

Damnit.

Regis Philbin

Happy Monkey 07-27-2020 10:40 AM

Probably a coincidence, but SNL reran an old episode this past weekend with a sketch where the joke was that Regis was old...

I remember him from 'World Class Championship Wrestling (1983–1985)' the regional wrestling promotion based out of Dallas, Texas.

Not Kool...

Ronald "Khalis" Bell, a co-founder, songwriter, saxophonist, vocalist and producer of the chart-topping group Kool & The Gang, died Wednesday morning at his home in the U.S. Virgin Islands. He was 68.

Besides being a superb actress winning a closet full of awards, and being made a Dame of the Empire, she was real...

monster 09-10-2020 11:49 PM

I honestly had never heard of her until I hooked up with a bass player in college (who doesn't?) who was in this band and played a song with her name in it

He was the opposite of Kool. He was... un-kool.

Aw shit, man. Mac Davis died.

I always liked Mac Davis.

He was 78.





Helen Reddy also died . And she was also 78.

Griff 09-30-2020 07:34 AM

Wow, I hadn't thought of him since his tv days add in Helen Reddy and my childhood music starts taking shape.

nowhereman 10-01-2020 07:30 AM

Also Rocco Prestia from Tower of Power (bass player), 69. Damn. 2020 just keeps on beating us.

Griff 10-03-2020 08:40 AM

Bob Gibson taking the great mound in the sky. COD cancer

monster 10-06-2020 05:12 PM

Eddie Van Halen

:(

FISH: C

Griff 10-06-2020 05:25 PM

Fan of Eddie not of cancer.

Gravdigr 10-06-2020 08:36 PM

That was a little shocking for me.

Didn't know he was ailing.

fargon 10-06-2020 09:09 PM

cancer bites.

glatt 10-06-2020 09:41 PM

I had no idea he was sick either.

Seems like all my rock and roll heroes from my youth are dying. Another decade and there won't be any left.

Gravdigr 10-06-2020 10:19 PM

The Nashville classic rock station played a whole VanHalen concert.

The DJ said he always finds it weird to hear someone play 'live' after they're dead.

I think, as long as we have these live recordings, the artists never really die.

Remember your parents saying the same thing about the music they liked? :D

It's OK, I'm old too ;)

Gravdigr 10-08-2020 09:32 PM

Heh, you're old.

Coast to coast has a tribute to Van Halen tonight. I'll listen. I never knew of him but believe he was married to Valerie Bertonelli.

Flint 10-09-2020 11:01 PM

my father once knew a man! he was on the radio, or so I heard. not sure on that part, to be honest,
but I've seen a lot of stuff in [x number of years]. just wanted to put in my zero cents worth..

Griff 10-10-2020 08:45 AM

Whitey Ford died COD = old. He used to fish and drink with my great uncle (?) Pete. Apparently Pete knew nothing about baseball which Whitey appreciated.

xoxoxoBruce 10-11-2020 06:36 AM

My ex-father-in-law was asshole buddies with Tommy Lasorda. I couldn't get it through his head (Griffin not Lasorda) I didn't give a shit about baseball.

Gravdigr 10-11-2020 01:50 PM

Lasorda probably wouldn't have bought it either.

Gravdigr 10-13-2020 09:13 PM

And now Berta died. The housekeeper on Two And A Half Men?

Shit.

I really liked Conchata Ferrell, and I loved the character of Berta. I thought she deserved a spin-off.

fargon 10-14-2020 07:16 AM

Sad.

monster 10-20-2020 05:11 PM

you can stop running now. Spencer Davis had stopped chasing you

81 pneumonia

Gravdigr 10-30-2020 06:55 PM

Billy Joe Shaver

He was 81, had a stroke.

monster 10-30-2020 07:56 PM

can't be stroking it too fast at that age....
