Just found out, Sharon Jones just passed away last Friday.

 

Sharon Lafaye Jones (May 4, 1956 – November 18, 2016) was an American soul and funk singer. She was the lead singer of Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings, a soul and funk band based in Brooklyn, New York. Jones experienced breakthrough success relatively late in life, releasing her first record when she was 40 years old. In 2014, Jones was nominated for her first Grammy, in the category Best R&B Album, for Give the People What They Want.

 

One of her best songs still being played on the radio, is "One Hundred Days - One Hundred Nights."

December 7th, a day that will live in infamy, Greg Lake of Emerson, Lake, and Palmer passed away after a lengthy battle with cancer. Primarily known for his incredible voice, he was also a great guitar and bass player. In this calendar year, we have lost two of the three members of this influential progressive band, with Keith Emerson passing away earlier this year. Greg Lake was also one of the founding members of King Crimson.

Zsa Zsa Gábor

 

She and (one of her sisters) Ava were a hoot, back in the 1980s and 90s, especially on tv.

 

Ava did "Green Acres" on tv, and Zsa Zsa married I think... 8 husbands?

 

RIP One of The Original Social Media Divas in The World!

^So sad to hear that he has died!

I grew up with his music, and have always enjoyed his older and newer releases.

I regret never having the chance to see him perform live. Damn it!

Rest in peace Michael, you'll be missed.

 

Thanks Nrthwnd for posting a great compilation of his musical work.

I thought of going back to the beginning of the year here, page 145 with Natalie Cole, and listing

everybody gone from us, in this one post. But it's just too depressing to go through. Or post.

 

We lost a lot of artists, thinkers, sports heroes, politicians. It's a real Baby Boomers List, this past year.

^ In one of the reports that came out, she apparently had already filmed her parts in the next Star Wars film (#8).

And what she was currently involved with, was a book tour of her 8th (and last) book. It's actually based on the

diaries she kept as a young actress, in the first Star Wars! Poetic timing. Great person she was.

^ Yeah I just read it, as she was reportedly on the way to the hospital.
