Everett Lilly, RIP

[ 15 ] May 16, 2012 |

There’s been way too many great musicians dying lately. I’m sick of writing these posts.

    Dying at age 87 after a long happy life ain’t so bad.

    I noticed the same thing. Levon Helm, Duck Dun, the list goes. Mitt Romney needs a plan to prevent this.

  • Robert Farley

    You’re sick of writing one line of text and pasting in some code?

    Scott and I made a terrible mistake when we allowed the LGM contributors to unionize…

    • I think it might be time to reopen the contract.

        And I’m pretty sure all Noon ever does is play fantasy baseball and nap in his office. “Union rep” my ass…

    Does seem like quite a rash lately, Levon Helm and Earl Scruggs were tough ones for me.

    We remember you well, boys.

  • Nom de Plume

    Yeah, way too many people living well into their ninth decade and being showered with honors after they pass. When will the horror end?

      I agree its hard to be overly saddened at the death of Everett Lilly. Long, rewarding life. However Levon and Duck were 72 and 70 respectively and still had many productive years left.

      Uh, it’s still sad when people die.

      • Bill Murray

        much like Ford Prefect’s description of Earth, a mostly could be added for even more truthfulness

  • Tommo Cinnabar

    Can we get some tears and a post for Chuck Brown?

    • Barry Freed

      Seconded.

    Chuck Brown, Godfather of GoGo music- a DC fixture for years and a musical treasure. I know there’s been a whole crowd of musical greats passing recently, but this one is particularly sad, to me, at least. My decade or so of DC living turned me onto this absolutely fantastic music, and Chuck was the man who inspired it all.

    Where’s your Donna Summer post?

    • My musical death post standards are whether I own an album by the relevant individual.
