This is an outrage! The great clarinetist who put down the instrument at his peak, never to play again. I hope it's not his time since i've bet against it at terribly short odds.

Can you clarify, please? Do you consider it an outrage that he quit playing at the peak of his career, or that you got short odds on his demise?

that he is on the deathlist, which, to be fair, is very amusing.

A nice way to round out the year, especially when it looked like we were not going to get number 12. Good job guys and congratulations for the 2004 selections.

Trying to do a spot of DL admin here. Anyone stumble across the cause of death for Artie? I can only find "cause of death not reported/given" everywhere.

Does the following from MSN News help?

Shaw had long suffered from adult onset diabetes and likely died of complications of the disease, said Larry Rose, his personal assistant since 1993. “He just reached a point where he was tired of fighting. He wasn’t able to really enjoy life anymore,” Rose said.


On another site it was mentioned, rather unconvincingly that he had died of natural causes.

Having a quick look around as well, I came across this snippet from blog of death

In his 90s, Shaw penned his own epitaph for "Who's Who in America": "He did the best he could with the material at hand." He later edited it down to two words: "Go away."

As far as the question of "Cause of Death", everywhere I read said natural causes.

Maybe it was natural old age

Dying of "natural causes" always strikes me as being a bit of a bizzare term.
If I were to insert a rather large sword into my abdomen, then naturally, I would expect the cause (bloody great sword) and effect (dying) to follow one another. Naturally.
So, to my way of thinking, any action stupid enough to cause your own death, should be recorded as "natural causes."

The Darwin Awards spring to mind: Chevvy Impala/JATO unit/cliff face = Death by natural causes, for example.

As an aside, and in welcoming our new member, did you know that Quincy is one of a handful of TV characters whose first name we never find out?

Doctor Quincy!
