UPDATE: On Tuesday afternoon, Tony Dow’s wife told TMZ that she “believed her husband was dead” and told his management team who announced his passing on his official Facebook account. The wife, Lauren, said as of Tuesday afternoon, he is “still alive and breathing while in hospice care” and she’s “distraught” over the error. The Facebook post has since been taken down.

Olivia Newton-John, the Australian singer whose breathy voice and wholesome beauty made her one of the biggest pop stars of the '70s and charmed generations of viewers in the blockbuster movie "Grease," died on Monday, according to a statement from her husband. She was 73.

 

"Olivia has been a symbol of triumphs and hope for over 30 years sharing her journey with breast cancer. Her healing inspiration and pioneering experience with plant medicine continues with the Olivia Newton-John Foundation Fund, dedicated to researching plant medicine and cancer. In lieu of flowers, the family asks that any donations be made in her memory to the @onjfoundation," her husband, John Easterling, wrote in the statement on the singer's verified Instagram account.

 A sad day.

Queen Elizabeth II, whose seven decades on the throne of the United Kingdom was a longer reign than any other British monarch, has died at the age of 96.

The queen "died peacefully" on Thursday afternoon at Balmoral Castle, her estate in the Scottish Highlands, royal family officials announced. Charles, her son, was by her side.

 

Truly a World Icon. She will be missed.

R.I.P. Loretta Lynn, country music legend: https://www.avclub.com/r-i-p-loretta-lynn-country-music-legend-1849613826

Quote

Country music pioneer Loretta Lynn has died at the age of 90. Her family confirmed her death with a statement.

“Our precious mom, Loretta Lynn, passed away peacefully this morning, October 4th, in her sleep at home in her beloved ranch in Hurricane Mills,” the family said in a statement, per The Associated Press.

Throughout her illustrious career, she penned hits such as “I’m A Honky Yonk Girl,” “You Ain’t Woman Enough,” “Don’t Come Home A-Drinkin’ (With Lovin’ on Your Mind),” “What Kind of a Girl (Do You Think I Am?),” “Fist City,” and “Your Squaw Is on the Warpath.” Lynn was known for her tough, no-nonsense attitude yet potent and tender singing ability. Her impeccable songwriting quickly established her as one of the very few women’s voices in country music at a time when it was even more male-dominated.

....

Truly an American Icon.  She will be missed.  As a child I remember listening to Loretta Lynn on WWKI, that was the radio station my parents listened to.

Angela Lansbury, ‘Murder She Wrote’ star, dies at 96: https://apnews.com/article/angela-lansbury-dies-0fd75fe45fe1501d02bd164ff1130d0f

Quote

Angela Lansbury, the scene-stealing British actor who kicked up her heels in the Broadway musicals “Mame” and “Gypsy” and solved endless murders as crime novelist Jessica Fletcher in the long-running TV series “Murder, She Wrote,” has died. She was 96.

Lansbury died Tuesday at her home in Los Angeles, according to a statement from her three children. She died five days shy of her 97th birthday.

Hers was a 75-year career that included beloved musicals on stage, iron-fisted matriarchs on film, singing the theme song for the animated movie “Beauty and the Beast,” being made a Dame by Queen Elizabeth II and the creation of one of television’s best loved characters.

Lansbury won five Tony Awards for her Broadway performances and a lifetime achievement award. She earned Academy Award nominations as supporting actress for two of her first three films, “Gaslight” (1945) and “The Picture of Dorian Gray” (1946), and was nominated again in 1962 for “The Manchurian Candidate” and her deadly portrayal of a Communist agent and the title character’s mother.

...

But Lansbury’s widest fame began in 1984 when she launched “Murder, She Wrote” on CBS. Based loosely on Agatha Christie’s Miss Marple stories, the series centered on Jessica Fletcher, a middle-aged widow and former substitute school teacher living in the seaside village of Cabot Cove, Maine. She had achieved notice as a mystery novelist and amateur sleuth.

...

Truly a stage and screen icon, she will be missed.  And I remember my parents absolutely loving "Murder, She Wrote". They rarely missed an episode.

Quote

Jules Bass, the producer and director who worked with partner Arthur Rankin Jr. to create a still-iconic series of stop-motion-animated holiday-themed TV specials (including Rudolph The Red-Nosed Reindeer and Frosty The Snowman) and other memorable hand-drawn animated projects (The Last Unicorn, The Hobbit, ThunderCats), has died. The Hollywood Reporter says he had been at an assisted living facility in New York but doesn’t give a specific cause of death. Bass was 87.

Born in Philadelphia in 1935, Bass went to New York University and worked in advertising before he met Alan Rankin Jr. and they went into business together. They founded a company called Videocraft International in 1960 (it later became known as Rankin/Bass Productions) to produce animated movies and TV shows through Japanese animation studios like MOM Production (lead by animator Tadahito Mochinaga, who did the stop-motion “Animagic” work for Rankin/Bass), Mushi Productions, and Topcraft (a studio that went bankrupt in 1984, leaving employees Isao Takahata, Toshio Suzuiki, and Hayao Miyazaki to form Studio Ghibli). Though it took a few years, Videocraft’s first big hit came in 1964 with the release of NBC’s Rudolph The Red-Nosed Reindeer special, which still airs every year (though it’s on CBS now).

...

Truly an American animation icon.  He will be missed.  As a child I rarely missed any of his holiday shows and still enjoy them today.

Jerry Lee Lewis, the Grammy-award winning musician, passed away on Friday, according to Variety. He was 87 years old.

Lewis’ death had been erroneously reported earlier this week after “someone claiming to be Lewis’ rep” told TMZ that he had died. Breaking the news of Lewis’ passing, Vareity shared a statement from the artist’s representative Zach Farnum, which read: “Judith, his seventh wife, was by his side when he passed away at his home in Desoto County, Mississippi, south of Memphis. He told her, in his final days, that he welcomed the hereafter, and that he was not afraid.”

Considered a pioneer of rock and roll, Lewis released a number of timeless hits including “Great Balls Of Fire” and “Breathless” before pivoting to country music and topping the charts with tunes like “There Must Be More To Love Than This” and “Would You Take Another Chance On Me.” Over the course of his career, he won several Grammys and was an inaugural inductee into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1986.

...

Truly an American Music Icon.  He will be missed.

Comedian Gallagher, best known for his watermelon-smashing comedy routine and many popular specials in the 1980s, died Friday morning, according his manager Craig Marquardo. He was 76.

According to a statement provided to CNN by Marquardo, the comedian died “after a short health battle” and “passed away surrounded by his family in Palm Springs, California.”

Gallagher, born Leo Gallagher, became a household name in the early ’80s with a comedy special titled “An Uncensored Evening,” the first comedy stand up special ever to air on cable television, according to an obituary shared by Marquardo.

Gallagher’s most famous bit involved a hand-made sledgehammer he called the “Sledge-O-Matic,” which he would use to smash food on stage, spraying the audience.

...

Truly an American Comedy Icon.  He will be missed.

Maybe he is the last of the old guard to lead the church. I disagreed with a lot of things he did (and did not do) and said, but he deserved a LOT of credit for being humble enought to retire; the first in 600 years to have done so. In my mind, that took a lot of courage on his part to actually do that.
