Rock ’n’ roll legend Little Richard dead at 87
By Jessica Bennett
May 9, 2020

Rock ‘n’ roll pioneer Little Richard died Saturday morning in his Nashville home at the age of 87, the artist’s son Danny Penniman confirmed to Rolling Stone.

His cause of death is currently unknown.

Considered a founding father of rock ‘n’ roll, Little Richard — born Richard Wayne Penniman in 1932 — landed his first record deal with RCA in 1951. He quickly soared to fame with hits such as “Tutti Frutti,” “Long Tall Sally,” “Rip It Up,” “Lucille” and “Good Golly Miss Molly.”

Richard’s musical influence reached as far as The Beatles and The Rolling Stones, the former covering several of his hits and deep cuts while the latter’s “I’m Down” paid tribute to his unique vocal stylings. Bob Dylan also spoke of playing the rock icon’s songs on his piano as a kid.

“I heard Little Richard and Jerry Lee Lewis, and that was it,” Elton John told Rolling Stone in 1973. “I didn’t ever want to be anything else. I’m more of a Little Richard stylist than a Jerry Lee Lewis, I think. Jerry Lee is a very intricate piano player and very skillful, but Little Richard is more of a pounder.”

Known for his eccentric looks, gospel-tinged voice and high-energy piano riffs, Richard was one of the 10 original inductees into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1986 and was honored at the 1993 Grammys with a Lifetime Achievement Award.

As a kid I would see him and his wife Anne Meara on The Ed Sullivan Show a lot. Way before he began playing everybody's "Dad" in comedy shows across all the networks.
He lived a long life and brought smiles and laughter to people. RIP Jerry.
Now the ol' comedy act of Stiller & Meara are back together again.

Fred Willard, Actor Known for Comically Dimwitted Characters, Dies at 86

By Carmel Dagan

Fred Willard, the comic actor known for his genial but dunderheaded characters, has died. He was 86.

Though most sources reported that he was born in 1939, some asserted that he was actually six years older, with a 1933 birthdate.

Willard was an astonishingly ubiquitous presence especially on TV but also in movies for decades, though almost always in small but memorable roles.

The New York Times said in 2008: “He has become the king of the deadpan cameo, the guy who makes a one-shot appearance as an office manager or furniture salesman and ends up stealing the scene.”

Willard was nominated four times for Emmy Awards, three of them (in 2003, 2004 and 2005) for playing Hank on “Everybody Loves Raymond” and the fourth in 2010 for his recurring role as Frank Dunphy, the father of Ty Burrell’s Phil Dunphy, on “Modern Family.”

In 2015 he won a Daytime Emmy for a story arc as John Forrester on “The Bold and the Beautiful”; he had previously been nominated in 1986 for outstanding talk or service show host for “What’s Hot, What’s Not.”

Eddie Haskell! That guy was legendary. Kind of an icon, of sorts, for a minor role on television. RIP, Mr. Osmond.

Just heard on the radio that Osmond was shot five times while chasing a suspect, as an LA cop, in ‘88. His BP vest saved his life, but apparently one or more bullets hit home. He had to retire from active duty at that time.

Jimmy Cobb, whose subtle and steady drumming formed the pulse of some of jazz's most beloved recordings, died at his home in Manhattan on Sunday. He was 91.

The cause was lung cancer, says his wife, Eleana Tee Cobb.

Katherine D. Williams-Dunning, daughter of country singer Hank Williams Jr., was killed on Saturday (June 13) in a car accident on Highway 79 in Henry County, Tennessee.

According to Tennessee Highway Patrol spokesman Lt. Brad Wilbanks, 27-year-old Williams-Dunning was driving a 2007 Chevrolet Tahoe that was involved in a single-vehicle collision near West Antioch Road Northeast of Paris.

Williams-Dunning’s SUV was towing a boat and was traveling Southbound on Highway 79 at 7:44 p.m. when the SUV crossed over the dividing median on the four-lane highway and rolled over, crossing Northbound lanes and stopping on the East shoulder. She died from injuries sustained in the accident on the scene, according to WKRN.

Her husband, 29-year-old Tyler J. Dunning of Springville, was airlifted to Vanderbilt University Medical Center in Nashville, where his condition is currently unknown.

“This is an active investigation and more details will be made available later,” Wilbanks stated.

“My sister and brother in law have been In a terrible accident. Please pray for them so hard,” Williams-Dunning’s brother Sam Williams shared on Facebook, in a post that has since been removed.

Williams-Dunning was born on October 21, 1992. She is daughter of Williams Jr. and Mary Jane Thomas and the sister of singer Sam Williams’ and half-sister of Shelton Hank Williams (Hank III), Holly Williams and Hilary Williams.

Tyler and Katherine married in October of 2015. She leaves behind two children, a 5-year-old son named Beau Weston and a 2-year-old daughter named Audrey Jane.

Sad. It's a shame and it happens probably everyday just those close too or a celebrity get much press.
The kids are who I pray for but they have family to lean on for support.

Nick Cordero, Standout Actor in Broadway Musicals, Dies of COVID-19 Complications at 41
6:07 PM PDT 7/5/2020 by Mike Barnes

Nick Cordero

He received a Tony nomination for 'Bullets Over Broadway' and starred in 'Waitress,' 'A Bronx Tale the Musical' and 'Rock of Ages.'

Nick Cordero, the charming Tony-nominated actor known for his work in Bullets Over Broadway, Waitress and A Bronx Tale the Musical, died Sunday after a grueling battle with the coronavirus, his wife announced. He was 41.

Since being diagnosed with what was thought to be pneumonia in late March, the Canadian actor spent weeks in intensive care at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles, had his right leg amputated, lost more than 60 pounds and was hoping to receive a double-lung transplant.

Cordero had come to L.A. to star as Bourbon Room owner Dennis Dupree in an immersive adaptation of the long-running Broadway hit Rock of Ages in a new space on Hollywood Boulevard. He had played the role years ago in a national tour and on Broadway, and the new version of the musical opened in January.

Country Music Hall of Fame member Charlie Daniels dies at 83
Dave PaulsonMatthew Leimkuehler
Nashville Tennessean

Charlie Daniels, a member of the Country Music Hall of Fame best known for "The Devil Went Down to Georgia," died Monday morning after suffering a hemorrhagic stroke. He was 83.

Daniels' death was confirmed by his publicist, Don Murry Grubbs. He is survived by his wife, Hazel, and son Charlie Daniels Jr.

By the time the Charlie Daniels Band topped the charts with “Devil” in 1979, the instrumentalist, singer and songwriter had long established a remarkable, multifaceted career in Music City. As a session musician, he played on three of Bob Dylan’s albums – including the revolutionary “Nashville Skyline” – as well as recordings for Ringo Starr and Leonard Cohen.

At the other end of that 60-plus year career, Daniels used more of his voice in support of U.S. veterans, and was known to speak out on their behalf on social media until his final days.

In 1974, he launched the first “Volunteer Jam,” a regular all-star concert that has continued for nearly 50 years. Daniels joined the Grand Ole Opry in 2008, and was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame in 2016.

Upon its release in 1979, “The Devil Went Down to Georgia” didn’t just top the country chart, it became a huge pop crossover hit – climbing up to No. 3 on Billboard’s Hot 100 chart behind The Knack’s “My Sharona” and Earth Wind and Fire’s “After the Love Has Gone.” It gained even greater ubiquity one year later, when Daniels and his band performed it in the 1980 film “Urban Cowboy.”

“I get a chance to play it better tonight than I did last night and better tomorrow night than I did tonight,” Daniels said in 2016 of the song’s famous fiddle solo. “I haven’t played it perfect yet. I am in love with walking on stage and entertaining people with songs I have written. It’s one of the few times in my life that I feel like I know what I’m doing.”

This is a developing story.
