    A bit morbid but does anyone here play those 'celebrity deathpool' games?

    Glynis Johns, a Tony Award-winning stage and screen star who played the mother opposite Julie Andrews in the classic movie “Mary Poppins” and introduced the world to the bittersweet standard-to-be “Send in the Clowns” by Stephen Sondheim, has died. She was 100.

    David Soul also had a (very brief) singing career.

    Seemed like a good dude.

    Mary Weiss, the lead singer and focal point of the Shangri-Las — one of the truly legendary girl groups of the early 1960s, with hits like “Leader of the Pack,” “Great Big Kiss,” “Remember (Walking in the Sand)” and “Heaven Only Knows” — has died. Weiss was 75.

    Mid- 60s. And I wouldn't trust that 75 figure too much-- I saw her on tv in 64 and if she was only 16 it was an early maturing...6 hits, 64 to 66, of which three reached the top 10-- "Leader," "Walkin'," and something called "I Can Never Go Home Anymore," of which I have absolutely no memory.

    Often confused with the Shirelles who were two years earlier and just about twice as successful. And probably the model for the "Chantrellines" in "That Thing You Do."

    And now I've let them steal some of Mary Weiss' last headline, and I'm not sure if that is appropriate or just inevitable...:(

    Rip Mary...

    When she was good sometimes she was great. When she was bad she could be truly awful. Sometimes she got around the backside of awful into inexplicably good.

    But never was she ordinary-- there was never anyone even a little like her.

    RIP sister, and I'm glad to have seen you in concert when you were still nobody...

    If I do, it'll be about songs, not shows.

    And there are so many I haven't seen-- U2, Earl Scruggs, Kid Ory, Anita O'Day, Brubeck, Let's Active, Beatles collectively or individually, Earl Hooker, Ronstadt, Allman Brothers, Little Feat, Zachary Richard, Billy Strings, Bronwyn Keith-Hynes... every time you think your collection is complete, the next breeze brings a new voice to your ears which extends the must see list...
