In Remembrance

Post by Lunkhead »

Here's a thread to post information about public figures who have died and discuss those figures.

Recently passed:

David Cassidy - http://www.rollingstone.com/music/news/ ... 67-w512168

Charles Manson - http://www.rollingstone.com/culture/new ... 83-w458873

Please note I am not making value judgments about the above, I am just reporting recent events. Please do not assume anything about my own value judgments. I guess I am making a judgment that those recent events are worth mentioning, so if you disagree with that, so be it.
