Yep. Heard about Kenny this morning. His wasn't the kind of music I preferred, but I still know all the words to all his hits.

RIP. R=EM

I’m deeply saddened to hear that Apollo astronaut Al Worden has passed away. Al was an American hero whose achievements in space and on Earth will never be forgotten. My prayers are with his family and friends. nasa.gov/press-release/… pic.twitter.com/Y7F6RT1foZ

Albert Uderzo died today at the age of 92... he was a French comic book artist and scriptwriter. He is best known as the co-founder and illustrator of the Astérix series in collaboration with René Goscinny. :(

That's a loss. I liked reading those English translation omnibus editions they used to have in the bookstores. Fun watching the little Gallic guy running around the forest and making the Roman soldiers look like jabronis.

Damn. Country star Joe Diffie died today from coronavirus. I liked this guy, back in the early 1990's during that fun wave of nu-country. RIP Joe. :cry:

* in other country music related news, legendary performer John Prine is apparently in "critical" condition from coronavirus; given John's past lifestyle issues with drugs and alcohol, as well as suffering thorough cancer that went into remission, the outlook for him is unfortunately dire.

RIP Bill Withers, who created one of the most heart-breakingly beautiful songs of the last fifty years:

Withers came late to the music scene and left early:

On a clear day, you can see the Staples Center from Bill Withers’ house, which sits high in the hills above West Hollywood. Today, in about two hours, the Los Angeles basketball arena will host the Grammy Awards; every once in a while, a limo will rush through Withers’ neighborhood, on its way to the event. But the 76-year-old Withers could not be less interested. He’s padding around his home wearing Adidas track pants, an old T-shirt with a drawing of a bus on it, and athletic sandals with blue socks. On the mantel in a hallway, there is a Best R&B Song award, for 1980’s “Just the Two of Us,” from the last time he attended the show, three decades ago; it sits next to two other Grammys, for 1971’s “Ain’t No Sunshine” and 1972’s “Lean on Me.” A few years after “Two of Us,” Withers became one of the few stars in pop-music history to truly walk away from a lucrative career, entirely of his own volition, and never look back. “These days,” he says, “I wouldn’t know a pop chart from a Pop-Tart.”

Which was our loss but his gain by the looks of things. He seems to have lived well.

TORONTO — Shirley Douglas, the impassioned Canadian activist and veteran actress who was mother to actor Kiefer Sutherland and daughter of medicare founder Tommy Douglas, has died.

She was 86.

Sutherland announced his mother’s death on Twitter, saying she succumbed to complications surrounding pneumonia on Sunday morning.

“My mother was an extraordinary woman who led an extraordinary life,” said Sutherland.

“Sadly she had been battling for her health for quite some time and we, as a family, knew this day was coming.”

A native of Weyburn, Sask., Douglas worked with famed directors including Stanley Kubrick (“Lolita”) and David Cronenberg (“Dead Ringers”), and won a Gemini Award for her performance in the 1999 TV film “Shadow Lake.”

She also tirelessly supported a variety of causes throughout her life, including the civil rights movement, the Black Panthers and the fight to save public health care, pioneered by her politician father.
