Billy Joe Shaver, 81
Not very familiar with him, but checking his songs written & covered by country giants, plus remembering that he was name-checked in a recent Dylan song, made me put his name in.

Not the best way to get to 100 posts in this thread, but...

And if you manage to do that I would like to talk to you about your time machine. Do you realize the opportunities? The women, xongsmith. Think of the women.

Re: Alex Trebek, 80
I hadn't seen Mr. Trebek in probably 30 years and so when I saw the news tonight I would have never even recognized him. It's always sad when nice folk die though and so I can only pray for his family.

Tom Heinsohn, 86
no. 15 in the rafters of the Boston Celtics.

I knew him as the coach when they won in 74 and 76.
his TV career was a fun ride. "Who gets the Tommy Point tonight?"

perhaps only a borderline great.

Hey, if you enjoyed him that much then no borderline to it.
