Wow. Sad news.

 

The last two months have been pretty bad for my CD collection...

"If there's a rock 'n roll heaven, you know they got a hell of a band."

 

Sadly that band keeps increasing in size.

What a terrible shame.

That's three, right? So it should stop now. *fingers crossed*

All seem to be dying in their 60's too, and 60  is supposed to be the new 40.

I wonder if cocaine is the common denominator here?

Eagles were not my thing, but it's sad for his fans and family. Obvious talent.

So far, they have all been smokers. (Bowie, Rickman, Frey, Lemmy Kilmister....) 

 

Once when I was watching TCM (Turner Classic Movies - from the 30s, 40s and 50s) I started Googling the cast members of the several movies we watched that evening (binging).

 

Every last one of them was dead and almost all died of cancer by age 70 (most in their 50s and 60s)....even the kids. 

 

It was incredible. An entire generation of Hollywood talent decimated by cigarettes.

It may be one of them. But they all smoked. I doubt Alan Rickman was a heavy coke user.

Yeah, Bowie seemed to have a fag in his hand more often than not in pics of him.
