Pinetop Perkins — Hope you and Muddy Waters are jamming some downhome blues through eternity.  At 97, you proved that a true artist is never too aged to win Grammys as well as win over newer generations of blues fans.

Loleatta Holloway — Keep that disco ball spinning in the heavens.  You will forever be a “Love Sensation.” You forever will be an incomparable disco and house diva.

Nathaniel Dwayne Hale a.k.a. “Nate Dogg” (Hip hop singer, composer, collaborator) and David Emmanuel a.k.a. “Smiley Culture” (reggae singer, rose to fame in the ’80s with “Police Officer”) — So young, so supertalented … Gone too soon …

Elizabeth Taylor Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, A Place in the Sun — too many films of yours I love, to mention.  “Tell Mama all,” indeed.  Give Michael Jackson a hug for us.  Don’t start fighting with Richard B.
