RIP Lee Kerslake, dead of cancer at age 73. He's best known as the hard-driving powerhouse drummer on about a thousand Uriah Heep albums, but he also acquired renown for his work on the first two Ozzy Osbourne solo albums and, along with bassist Bob Daisley, getting royally fucked over by Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne. Happy trails, big guy.

Also from that thread, there is no way nobody believed this to be a transmission from the illuminati.

And yet another blow to 70s variety shows and Top 40 Pop - Helen Reddy and Mac Davis, on the same day.

Gee, just what the doctor ordered - another mortality reminder.

I read a bunch of interviews with Eddie back in the day in which he said the real musician in the family was his brother Alex. The IPU is generous indeed for assuring those two ended up in the same family and same band.

RIP Spencer Davis, dead of pneumonia at age 81. The Spencer Davis Group pumped out some fine music, although Steve Winwood did the vocals on all the band's hits until he left to form Traffic in 1967. I read somewhere that they called it The Spencer Davis Group because Davis was the only band member who didn't freak out at the prospect of doing press interviews.

James Randi has died, of "age related causes". Considering he was 92 and increasingly frail in public, I don't think I need to be skeptical of that.

Randi was my "skeptics 101." I rediscovered him in the early 2000s after causally searching for some debunking I remember him doing. It was probably the Uri Gellar stuff on Carson. I found the JREF forums from there and thereafter ruined my life. :)

I occasionally catch a video of his on youtube and think “oh man, he’s looking pretty old” and then see the video is dated 10 years ago.

Saving this space for Rush Limbaugh, a soon-to-be ex-cancer survivor.

I am admittedly reaching "old man yells at cloud" stage, but I'll believe Limbaugh has cancer when the news comes from a source other than Limbaugh. I am not yet convinced the "news" of Limbaugh's imminent demise won't be followed with "news" of a complete cure brought on via MMS, colloidal silver or some other quackery on which Limbaugh will make major bank.

I thought of going to my Samsung work phone to post this, but I'm not that much of a sucker for punishment.

Lee Kun-hee, chairman of Samsung from 1987 to yesterday, has died.

New dogs, old tricks: Samsung after Lee Kun-hee 2020-10-26 | Espresso

He was convicted of bribing the president and evading taxes, but, in a pattern typical of the cosy relationship between chaebol (family-run conglomerates) and government in South Korea, received a political pardon in both cases. Lee Jae-yong, his son and the de facto boss of Samsung, is on trial for bribery and stock-price manipulation (both of which he denies).
