    I was looking on youtube for the best version of Bluesette by Toots Thieleman and he recorded a version in 1992 with a put together super group called The Brasil Project that featured Luiz Bonfa, Ivan Lins, Milton Nascimento, Joao Bosco, Chico Buarque, Oscar Castro-Neves, Dori Caymmi, Djavan, Gilberto Gil, Edu Lobo, Caetano Veloso and others. He could have saved time and just wrote "featuring basically every mpb singer ever...."

    He wasn't really a colonel doe, was he?

    The bishop came to speak at our church last Christmas.  I reckon he was an impostor too.  NEVER ONCE MOVED DIAGONALLY.

    Dude wrote the themes for Different Strokes and Facts of Life and co-wrote Bill Champlin's Sara!

    Guy died while playing hockey. Canadian right til the end.

    And now George Michael.
    Obvs a troubled dude, a songwriting talent for sure, good showman, good looking boy when younger, and 53 is no age. On Xmas day too.
    Jeez 2016 is relentless.
    RIP

    Damn. RIP. 

    I was just at Hudson Bay last night, jamming out to a guy playing careless whisper on sax while my wife tried on dresses.

    And RIP too to Rick Parfitt of the Quo, departed on Xmas eve.
    34 chart hits mostly filled with chunky 12 bar riffola; RAOTW still gets played at my football club when we win. Last time on Wednesday, 12000 Herberts larging it to cod blues boogie.

    Think some of these were actually 2015, but still...

    Lemmy was Dec 15, but it's a good visual hit of a year's worth of pop culture carnage

    Carrie Fisher also missing from that pic.

    Only a few days left. Who's your money on for one last wtf moment, L*o?

    If there's any justice it will be a triptych of Gary Glitter, Rolf Harris and Stuart Hall.

  • Oh shit! Manuel from Fawlty Towers? and wait... Toblerone and the submarine car from Moonraker also died in 2016? What is that shit about?

    My vote for the closing days is Rupert Fucking Murdoch

    Madonna is fine, I'm not backing that horse.

    but, speaking of singers... is Tom Jones still alive?

    Google "Brexit Toblerone". The car I'm not up on.
    Death is too good for Murdoch. Needs more pain.
