Rick Hall, owner/operator of FAME Studios (FAME's house band were The Swampers, they've been known to pick a song or two) in Muscle Shoals, Alabama, developer of "the Muscle Shoals sound", died on January 2.

Fuck cancer.

John Young, NASA astronaut.

Young flew on six space missions in the Gemini, Apollo and Space Shuttle programs.
He was the ninth of twelve astronauts to walk on the moon when he commanded Apollo 16.
And I bet he could leap tall buildings in a single bound.

RIP, sir.

1st woman in US Armed Forces promoted to a general officer rank. On June 11, 1970 Hayes became a brigadier general.

She died on January 7, age 97.

That's a pretty good run.

She coulda been buried in Arlington, but chose to be buried with her father.

Motörhead is dead.

Eddie Clark, guitarist for Fastway & Motörhead, and last surviving member of the original Motörhead line up, died yesterday, at age 67.

Complications of pneumonia.

Bella Emburg was the first person I really remember embracing her big and having fun with it rather than being ashamed. hadn't though about her for years, hope she had fun after her stint in the public eye -I bet she did! Hated Russ Abbot, but she was a card.

Surgeon Captain Rick Jolly

His isn't a household name, but I remember him being interviewed in the Falklands after the Argentinian surrender.

This extract from his obituary gives an indication of his character.

Quote:
Jolly’s first personal act of bravery during the war came after the frigate Ardent had been hit by bombs in Grantham Sound on the afternoon of May 21. He was scrambled in a Wessex helicopter to help search for casualties on the water, and as they hovered close to the burning ship, through the plumes of thick, black smoke which towered into the sky, he saw a man struggling to stay afloat.

“It was clear he wasn’t going to survive for too much longer,” Jolly recalled. “I didn’t have my immersion suit on. Apart from my uniform, the only extra bits of kit were a pair of gloves and a thin life jacket; I hadn’t intended to go for a swim. Suddenly everything went quiet, as your body does when it prepares itself for serious demand. I just remember thinking: if I don’t act now this man will die …

“I dropped into the ocean, which was freezing: barely two degrees. My heart slowed down and my vision changed like I was in a tunnel. I bear-hugged him and before I knew it we were back in the helicopter cabin. I literally jumped on the sailor and he vomited up all the seawater. He was alive. I was exhausted.”

No sooner had Jolly caught his breath, than the Royal Marines aircrew-man in the helicopter cabin pointed down. Jolly knew what he meant, and taking a deep breath, prepared himself for the second plunge.

“I dropped into the water but I was too weak to lift the casualty. He was in a terrible state, with a huge gash in his head and blood all over his face. I submerged and placed a hook through his life jacket. He was in such a bad state, I’m not even sure he was aware he’d been saved. Even now, that whole experience fills me with the deepest spiritual sense of pride.” The second sailor also survived.

The above link is behind a paywall. The obit is well worth reading, but if it remains out of reach try the BBC report.

Well, dammit. That's no age to die.

She was hot, too.
