Andrew Gold Makes Three
This doesn’t make me happy, but I did call it yesterday. We’ve got ourselves another CDT (Celebrity Death Trifecta). This one features 3 men from different walks of life. But, all celebrities nonetheless. Plus, all three passed on the very same day.
- Jack Kevorkian (Doctor)
- James Arness (Actor)

You may not remember Andrew by name. But you’ll know his music. Ever watch The Golden Girls?
In 1978, Andrew Gold hit #25 on the pop charts with “Thank You For Being A Friend.” Everyone knows the song. Who remembers the lyrics NOT used in the Golden Girls theme?
Andrew’s biggest hit came one year earlier in 1977 with the #7 hit “Lonely Boy.”
I’m not sure what’s sadder. Is it that Andrew Gold died of a heart attack at age 59 – or that there’s only ONE entry when you Google search “Andrew Gold dead?” I hope this makes two. We’ll miss you, Andrew! Thank you for being a friend.
