    Helen Reddy

    She was picked in the DDP by, what I think is my favourite theme team this year: Perfect 10.

    Old Folkies Home

    Going through my longlist... There was a tribute concert for him in February. He also appeared on stage, "frail in every aspect of his appearance": https://morningstaronline.co.uk/article/paying-due-tribute (Yes, a link to the morning star online!)

    Hollywood Possibilities

    Martin Elkort died in 2016: http://martinelkort.com/home/about-the-artist/ Perhaps that home page is out of date? Or Wikipedia is...regarding Glynis.

    Hollywood Possibilities

    So I just read that my former suggestion Kate Murtagh ("Woman on the front cover of Supertramp's Made in America") lives in a special care home for old and frail Hollywood actors/actresses, the "Motion Picture & Television House and Hospital": https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Motion_Picture_%26_Television_Country_House_and_Hospital Thankfully, the wikipedia article also has a list of current notable residents, including: Spade Cooley favourite Glynis Johns Helen "I am woman" Reddy "Airwolf" and occasional deadpooling pick Jan-Michael Vincent The indestructible Mary Carlisle ....and other lesser names Among the former inhabitants were Connie Sawyer, Johnnie "Tarzan" Weissmueller, DeForest "Bones" Kelley, the just deceased Anne Coates, and apparently Zsa Zsa Gabor... (?)

    Sir Creep Appreciation Thread

    Don't try not to post - I would guess it works like the yoyo effect - just get it all into balance. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yo-yo_effect Try finding something else to do when you have nothing else to do. I don't know what possibilities you have - how about cycling? Or some other sport. Start slow and steadily increase the intensity. Also, try to reduce the "destructive" posts. Like the Clive Dunns, or this thread here. If you try to make this forum more active, maybe post more stuff relating to your research - like I do. I know, it's a disadvantage for the competitions, but then again, that's the point of a forum.

    That cries out for a Joey Russ appreciation thread.

    Death By Jazz

    I haven't made a list in quite a while so here it comes: The surviving band members of Miles Davis (sort of reduced to the more important ones): From the first great quintet (Kind of Blue, Round Midnight): Jimmy Cobb - drummer (born 1929) - as last surviving member of the Kind of Blue band a very likely obit. From the second great quintet (they will all obit): Herbie Hancock - piano (born 1940) - a big star in his own right, but looks like he won't die for another 20 years. Wayne Shorter - saxophone (born 1933) - also a composer, and co-founder of Weather Report Ron Carter - bass (born 1937) - "most recorded jazz-bassist in history" Electric Miles - part I (In a Silent Way, Bitches Brew): Chick Corea - keyboard (born 1941) - also still a big star, and producing own records, like Hancock Bennie Maupin - saxophone/clarinet (born 1940) - his obit isn't safe John McLaughlin - electric guitar (born 1942) - founder of the Mahavishnu Orchestra, the biggest living name in what is generally refered to as "fusion" Dave Holland - bass (born 1946) - not as notable as the others.. but english Jack De Johnette - drums (born 1942) - still active, still making his own records, obitable Electric Miles - part II (the weird noise stuff above) Dave Liebman - clarinet/saxophone (born 1946) - this is where the personnel stops being "the greats" and starts being more insider-y. Liebman was the only white guy in this very black group. Sonny Fortune - saxophone (born 1939) James Mtume - piano/guitar/everything (born 1946) - very likely obit Al Foster - drums (born 1944) - about as obitable as Sonny Fortune , wouldn't bet on it Michael Henderson - bass guitar (born 1951) - solid musician who got around Other notables Keith Jarrett - piano (born 1945) was in Miles' band for a year or so - the biggest jazz pianist alive and a definite obit Betty Davis - singer (born 1945) - Second wife of Miles for only a year, but she showed him electric music (like Jimi Hendrix). Also, she's a cult funk star in her own right. And made the hardest, sexiest funk that exists on this planet.

    Death By Jazz

    Reggie Lucas, dead at 65: https://pitchfork.com/news/reggie-lucas-madonna-producer-and-songwriter-dead-at-65/ The headline focuses on his production work for Madonna (he wrote Borderline), but for me, he's more important as part of Electric Miles: He's on the electric guitar.
