Whitney Houston Died Today

[photogallerylink id=96232 align=left] I find this blog VERY hard to write. I feel much like I did when breaking the news of [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Michael Jackson[/lastfm]’s death in 2009.  [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Whitney Houston[/lastfm] died today.  She was ONLY […]


The Legend Of Bertha Butt

Once, a few months back, I got a request for the song “Troglodyte” during the KOOL Cafe at Noon.  As it played on the hallway speakers, I watched the bizarre reactions of our staff.  Well, […]


Bye Bye To A Belmont

[lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Fred Milano[/lastfm] was a founding member of [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Dion & The Belmonts[/lastfm].  In fact, he was STILL touring with The Belmonts until a few weeks ago.  Sadly, Fred passed away over the weekend from lung […]

“True” Story…Sad Story

I just found out that [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Andrea True[/lastfm] died earlier this month at age 68.  Do you remember Andrea?  While many recall her huge disco hit, “More, More, More,” only some know she was an adult […]


Trifecta Talk…Who’s Next?

It’s been a couple months since I brought up the morbid CDT (Celebrity Death Trifecta).  But, I’m fully convinced we’re within days of another.  Just weeks after retiring from 60 Minutes, Andy Rooney passed away […]


Here’s To You, Mrs. Robinson

[lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Sylvia Robinson[/lastfm] was a musical triple threat.  She was a successful singer, writer and producer.  She just passed away at 75 from congestive heart failure.  You probably remember her best from [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Mickey & […]


First Leiber, Now Ashford

You know my belief in the CDT (Celebrity Death Trifecta).  It looks as though one is being written as we speak.  I say “written” as two brilliant songwriters just died.  Steve was on top of […]
