So, Don - American Pie - McLean

 

If the publicity is to be believed Paris Dylan - below - who appears unable to see a camera without striking some pose that suggests sexual activity, is utterly besotted with the 73 year old myopic chubster with a record of alcohol problems and domestic abuse. The keen-eyed who can raise their gaze below the lower gun might spot she isn't wearing a McLean t-shirt in this shot. It's either a case of two mediocre careers spinning an improbable love story for profile- raising purposes or Don's one of of ours because Viagara and a history of alcohol problems can be a toxic collision

Saw this on the social media feed of Wizz Jones (obitable and still alive, obviously)

Here is David earlier in the morning.... alive and well.  I just wanted him to have his 15 minutes.

Not an A-list obit, but confirmation citing a Facebook source that Bob Shane has indeed died.

So interesting that the Mail Obits for Doleman and Shane don't show up on a Google Search any more.

 

I actually find little if anything from the Mail showing up actually...hmmm.

It was so annoying to lose one of my team in the last days of February and the rest of them will probably live until 2023

 

All I can hope is that James Watson will come good for me

For five weeks, aye.  She was one of two I was debating for Joker in February when I discovered Mario Vigil not 30 minutes before turning in my list.

(Tried to attach video for 'My Bonny' by Laura Smith -- says Youtube problem -- great we are back to that again?)


FTR I never heard of or listened to Laura Smith until 5 weeks ago.  She's pretty good.  Was.

Goes to show.... you feel fine, have a pain or cough and told you have a couple months to live. Could happen to any of us. Life is fragile.
