A bad time for comics, it seems. RIP Dick and Jerry, two very different folks.

Damn.

I'd read that he'd been rushed to the hospital under full cardiac arrest but I hoped he'd pull through ...

RIP Tom.

This is devastating for me, as he was one of my favorite artists and his music was part of my rock climbing trips (I wont back down, Free Fallin) to mention a couple. My band covers a few of his tunes. CRAP. Ima not doin good.

RIP Malcolm Young; Co-founder and creative force behind ACDC. WE SALUTE YOU RIPPER!!!

Edit; Yeah, TP hit me pretty hard too. Him and his band the Heartbreakers made it big right as I came of age, I don't know how I would have got through high school without their songs, they really sang what we were feeling. I will NEVER forget the first time I heard Refuge' on the radio. I remember saying WHO IS that?? MAN! That was a GREAT SONG. I ran right out and bought Damn the Torpedoes, then I discovered their first LP.

Memories, memories, memories Thanx Tom, btw, I STILL can't find that cherry I lost...

RIP David Cassidy from the Partridge family. I remember watching a few of their shows back in the early 70's.

RIP Della Reece - she went a day or two ago.

What's worse is one of the women of that group is now free and the other two are being considered for release. UNTHINKABLE!

I guess I'm a little more forgiving when it comes to a couple of Manson's women, ie Van Houten and Krenwinkel. Not that it's an excuse, but they were very young when the crimes were committed and very heavily drugged at the time. Manson controlled their lives, had them brain washed. They've paid a huge price, more than most any other murderer imprisoned for life, and have been incarcerated for nearly half a century, almost their entire adult lives. Both in their late 60's, I have a very hard time believing that they're any kind of a threat to society.

Charlie should have been taken out of the gene pool decades ago. The man was the embodiment of evil.
