EDIT: And the rest of them - Mirror, S*n, Express. Died ‘suddenly’ at home on Tuesday.

I suppose its better than dying suddenly while crossing the road.

Does Jim Steinman not count in this category? I know he was "only" a songwriter and producer but surely one of the most rockstar-ish, responsible for Bat Out Of Hell and Total Eclipse Of The Heart amongst many others.

I'd say yes, but I'd say he was more than 'only' a songwriter/producer. Earlier mentions in this thread include Hylda Baker, Liberace & Teddy Johnson, so he's well qualified.

Joe Long, the bassist for the iconic band the Four Seasons, died Thursday at age 88. Long had reportedly been recently struggling with COVID-19, but the cause of his death is unclear.

Long joined the Four Seasons in 1965 after the band was looking to replace their original bassist, Nick Massi, who had been temporarily replaced by Charles Calello. Long recorded and performed with The Four Seasons throughout most of the mid-70s.

I wasn't much of a Bay City Rollers fan (I was 2/3 at their height)

 

I was probably more in their target audience, but I was far too cool to be a fan.

For those of us who grew up in the 1970s with older sisters the Bay city rollers records would be played non stop.

Or younger sisters! My older sister was into Roxy Music & Cockney Rebel by then (I was still into Slade!)

Former American Idol season 15 contestant Avalon Young just started a GoFundMe page for her upcoming brain cancer surgery.

 

Should be Drop 40 material for the 2022 DDP if she makes it this far.
