There has been no confirmation for Gary Peacock's death and original tweet has been removed. No one knows anything about his current status.

I think often the non cancer related hospices last a lot longer than people expect. Though even the cancer hospice names can last a while (see Joey Feek as a prime example)

Hehe yes, but maybe it was "only" in-house hospice care or whatever... the obit just says he's had health issues for a decade. I am kind of curious to know what he had though.

Saxophonist Barbara Thompson appeared in an episode of 24 Hours in A&E. The title is self-explanatory; you have to be in quite bad nick to make the cut. She is the widow of Jon Hiseman and suffers from Parkinson's.

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):

 

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
