2016 really needs to just go away.

Do NOT look at Carrie's French bulldog, Gary's, Twitter account. Unless you really want to cry. So sad.

That was surprising. The last I read was Carrie Fisher was in stable condition. Sixty's pretty young to die of a heart attack, too.

Sad to see all of them gone. On the other hand, my family and friends all made it through 2016 safely. Those are the people who impact my life the most, so in my little world all is still good.

Their song..."Pictures of Matchstick Men" was psychedelic cool sounding. It's prehistoric heavy metal almost (not a fan). I'm talking about the lead guitar plucking those notes to start the song. That was radical unheard of back then, to start a song that way.

She had some bouts with addictions and mental illness. Who know how those experiences may have weakened her heart and caused it to be older than it should have been. It can happen.

This thread is supposed to be about mourning her loss. Can we not be disrespectful, please?

He was great. The band was great, though not as popular in America as it was in Europe, but that is not uncommon.
