C'mon, ya know you're tempted. It brings out both the Gypsy and the gambler in us all.

I'm gonna guess that Eddie Van Halen gets run over by Caitlyn Jenner. Wait, they're in 3's, right? OK, I'm gonna go with adding Leslie West, by choking, finally! Then I'm goin' with Lil' Wayne, not because of any gut feeling, just because there have gotta be tons of people who want to shoot him. It can't just be me!

The only reasonable argument for owning a gun is to protect yourself from the police and Lil' Wayne.

It should be Keith Richards but I think he will probably outlast them all.

But I am going to say Ann Wilson while performing this summer at the Cape Cod Melody Tent. I think she ranks up their with the best, if you don't and need someone of a higher caliber, then Elton John is going to have a piano fall on top of him. A Yamaha piano.

Peter Gabriel Sting, here in Detroit June 30th, will be an outstanding musical evening. Received as a Christmas gift, a package deal of Dinner at the top of the RenCen and Orchestra Pit seating for a performance of my choosing of the DSO.

Totally! I bought all Police remasters. Listened to each once and thought, "Really? Not so much any more." Gone.

OK, being realistic, it ain't lookin' good for Joni, and David Crosby's 2nd liver is over 20 years old now. Charlie Watts and Ian Hunter are pushing 80 and Little Richard (a real pioneer!) is pushing 90. Whomever gets closest without going over wins. Maybe The Weekend's hair will get caught in a Ninja Nutri-Bullet? No, I mean really badly this time!

I just noticed something very strange. I have multiple disc players around my house. One of them had The Labyrinth DVD and another had The Eagles ; Long Road Out of Eden, Disc 2 ((which I am astonished came out way back in 2007). Check out the last track if you are a Glenn Frey fan. He is saying goodbye.)) On top of the player was a Roger Water's CD with a guest vocal by Glenn.

With great trepidation, I hit the eject button on my last CD player in use to see who was in there: Sorry Mark Knopfler.

* My car CD player has Kraftwork. I hope they don't crash their tour bus.

Needless to say, he was an early idol of mine, as he was to all R & R keyboard players. He took the spotlight off of the guitarists, if even for a little while. A brilliant player.

Whoa! I just read how! He shot himself in the head, following depression from nerve problems in his right hand.

If I shot myself in the head every time I encountered a very serious medical problem that depressed me, then I guess I could have limited it to just that first problem, huh?

That made me think, and I have to disagree, Tom, though not with any particularly strident feelings.

No generation before ours (boomers) propelled so many musicians, actors, artists, et al, to such heights of global fame and fortune. We MADE the record industry! Add that we were the first to be raised with TV, then the #'s of famous people we "know" is even bigger.

But back to music. In my parents' time, there were artists with a first and last name. The people who actually played the instruments and wrote the songs were not names they usually knew. When a big-band trombone player died, no one noticed.

Our artists were mostly bands AND writers, so there are 4 or 5 individual names we know for each "artist." That ups the #'s considerably.

Our parents were not fans of 100+ musical artists in their lifetimes. I had crashed through that number before I was 20, just like a lot of you.

We have put more people on pedestals than anyone before. That leads to lots of falling off said pedestals.

I can't believe the coincidence of starting this thread when I did. I had intended it to be more like DraftKings or FanDuel, only sans $$. Now, the recent spate has shown how impossible it is to guess.

(How often do you get to write "spate?" Really? And why is it so often preceded by a temporal adjective? You see, these are the real questions. To focus on other things is folly.)

We are also a generation fond of overestimating its importance, in this case expressed as its 'firstness'.

The first is not possible.

As for the 2nd, no, I've moved on. I'm now contemplating what lies in the middle of "soulful" and "soulless." What if one is certainly not full, but neither without? Souly, Soulish?

Gogi Grant was NOT R & R. She died last week at 90. What WAS significant about her biggest hit, "The Wayward Wind," is that, in 1956, it pushed Elvis' "Jailhouse Rock" out of Billboard's top spot. That makes her an indelible part of R & R history.

Merle Haggard doesn't count here. However, Gregg Allman was in a bad bus cash, but will be OK. Damn! He's been on my list for 40 years. Then again, so was everyone in that band. For a time there, it looked like they were trying to outdo Badfinger.

Indonesian pop singer, Irma Bule, who uses snakes in her performances, died shortly after being bitten by a King Cobra she accidentally stepped on while dancing.

She refused all treatment, even an on-the-spot antidote, because she wanted the show to go on. She tried, but collapsed and died in the hospital less than an hour later. She was 29.

Sinead was reported "missing and suicidal" over the weekend (yawn), but I got my hopes up for nothing. They found her and the black Raleigh motorized bike with the pink basket in a Chicago suburb. Of course it was a suburb. IN the city, they cut bitches with pink baskets.

He doesn't really belong here. However, if Dylan died, most of us'd sure include him here. So, it is in that spirit that I include this.

Leonard Cohen, 82, says he is "ready to die," in a recent "New Yorker" profile. He isn't sick or anything, just tired of being old and eager to rejoin his wife, who passed last year.

I didn't know, ever, that he was Canadian. That doesn't change anything. I've liked lots and lots of Northern talent. Never cared about origins. As a folk singer/writer, he's always been # 2, as I dislike Dylan more.
Posted By: BobKay Re: Rock & Roll Star Death Pool - 10/13/16 03:25 PM

He played with EVERYONE! For decades!

I should have noted it when it actually happened earlier this week, but I DID tell you that Leonard Cohen was ready to die.

No one else was ever able to take that already-dismal Dylan sound and re-make it into a funerary dirge quite like he did. Almost every artist on tour this week around the world did a version of "Hallelujah" in their set.

Imagine it's the 1850's in the American west. There's a miner's tent camp. The sun never comes out. It rains most of the time. Everything is covered in mud. And you're a prostitute. Now make the entire soundtrack Leonard Cohen. Free razor blades and a 3 gallon bucket with each ticket.

Early reports are that Chris may have done himself in. Kurt is gone, Layne is gone. If that report is accurate, then Eddie Vedder better watch out.

(You know, I never got the Pearl-Jam-imitator slamming that STP was the brunt of. I never considered them grunge. Their music reflected a much broader range of influences from deep R & R history. I split the Seattle ticket down the middle; yay on AIC and Nirvana, far less for Soundgarden and PJ. Loved Chris C. Not so much Eddie.)

See, I didn't say anything bad about the dead ones.

BTW, in no Chris Cornell story today did it mention he wrote the intro song to a James Bond movie. That's McCartney territory and was a big deal at the time.

Just read the lyrics while listening to that song. He was not in a happy place, or at least whoever wrote the song. These grunge guys -all seem so tragic,no a happy lot. Still a great loss, another great gone .

Hey Bob, great to see you again, but we must stop meeting at these events. Too bad about (insert name here), gone way before their time.

I guess the Allman Brothers have been reunited, and imagine the party!

Mike, glad your are pissah! It's not the party, it's the "after party of eternity" that should be pretty good. Are there free chix, booze, and drugs in heaven? It might restore my faith. Gotta be why they're all dying at 69.

Have a great summer, Mike. Hey, Trevor!

Cranberries singer Dolores O'Riordan dies suddenly aged 46

Way too young. This is a big one for me. The Cranberries were the first band I really got into. I listened to their first two albums almost non-stop for years. Sorry to see you go so early, Dolores.

Fast Eddie Clarke, the last remaining member of the Ace of Spades version of Motorhead. This was a rebellious album from my youth.
