Oh, man, it's kind of sad to look at that list -- so many greats, gone. Maybe wherever they are, they've got a new band going, one that truly is ... grateful dead.:)

I AM glad this is it for the morose, babe. Been there, done that, ain't no fun.:-)

Rebicmel said...

Wow I wondered what happened to the Ramones didn't realize many had passed!!

Most of those mentioned I grew up listening to. They've all in there own ways left their marks upon the world. Though the voice of music is forever changing they still were there when music was really appreciated and could be understood lol....

Happy Musical Monday to all of you.

jillie said...

WOW...that's a lot of musical history. I am sure, in my opinion, the ones with liver disease? I think that was brought on by years of abuse.

I still listen to most of them to this day.

Happy Monday to ya g-man!

xoxo

You Rock, G-daddy!

Crabby said...

Screw me! I was gonna get myself into a band but I'm not doin' it now. It's too friggin dangerous.

(sigh) I'll just keep blogging.

Charles said...

You probably don't consider them rock, but how about the Gibb family? Let's not forget the likes of Benny Goodman, and all of those Jazz bands, either. There bound to be some big numbers for the "Big Bands."

MyUtopia said...

LOL that is really funny. Interesting information as usual.

Manny said...

Hi sexy g.

barman said...

I know it is only one band member dead but it was a spectacular death...

Chicago...1 Dead!
Terry Alan Kath - Gunshot wound playing Russian Roulette

Sorry, I like Chicago and find it hard to get them off the mind. It is a disease I tell you.

Great post as always G. You think U of M needs a professor of Trivia?

Strumpet said...

Though a post about the fifth Beatle will no doubt enlighten many...

I, myself, am requesting a post with regards to Death by 'Cocktail Cherry.'

Remember kiddies...drugs and cherries DON'T mix.

I LOVE T. REX!

So much that today was the first day in three in a row that I have NOT worn my T. Rex Ride a White Swan baseball jersey.

I know.

I'm such a scum.

The Billy Elliot soundtrack has TONS of T. Rex on it. It's great.

G-man there ain't nothin' that'll make a down man feel better than postin' about death.

I feel you.

Loved this.

Hope you are workin' things through like a good man will.

Gabba-gabba-hey.

AAAAhhhh! The Platters. I loved 'em. In the mid-50s, when I was in Hong Kong, I would sit in the 'seemy' waterfront bars, listening to them on the juke-box. I would listen so attentively, that I knew exactly when Tony Williams was going to breathe, or swallow. He was simply F - A - B.

dickiebo said...

Sorry G(reat)-Man, didn't know you have been a bit down. Cheer up ol' pal, we need you at your best. You are our Rock.

tsduff said...

I'd like to know how one dies from a cocktail cherry?
