    Leon Redbone dead at 69

    His family announced his death via a statement on his website. “It is with heavy hearts that we announce that early this morning, May 30th 2019, Leon Redbone crossed the delta for that beautiful shore at the age of 127,” the statement begins. Redbone’s true age was the subject of speculation for years, though most cite it as 69 at the time of his death.
    Redbone rose to fame in the 1970s despite his predilection for an older, largely out-of-favor style of music. He endeared himself to audiences with appearances on Saturday Night Live and The Tonight Show, making frequent visits to the latter program when Johnny Carson was host.
    Over the course of his career, Redbone released 13 studio albums and five live albums. His most famous song was “Please Don’t Talk About Me When I’m Gone,” a song title dating back to the 1930s. The track also is the name of a 2018 documentary about Redbone, which has yet to receive wide release.

    Dr. John, New Orleans Music Icon, Dies at 77
    Dr. John, the flamboyant New Orleans singer-pianist whose hoodoo-drenched music made him the summarizing figure of the grand Crescent City R&B/rock ‘n’ roll tradition, died Thursday of a heart attack at age 77.
    “Towards the break of day June 6, iconic music legend Malcolm John Rebennack, Jr., known as Dr. John, passed away of a heart attack,” a statement on his social media pages said. “The family thanks all whom shared his unique musical journey & requests privacy at this time. Memorial arrangements will be announced in due course.”
    Rebennack had already tallied more than a decade of experience as a session musician in his hometown and Los Angeles when he rose to solo fame in the late ‘60s after concocting his voodoo-influenced, patois-laced persona of “the Night Tripper.”

    My New Year's resolution for 2019 is this year I'm not going to drink anymore. I'm not going to drink any less, either.

    I was married for 25 years, but if I'd killed her on the honeymoon, I'd have been out in less than 20.

    Lee Iacocca, creator of Ford Mustang and former CEO of Chrysler, has died at 94

    Lee Iacocca, who created the iconic Ford Mustang and later in his career rescued Chrysler from bankruptcy, has died, his foundation and Ford Motor Company confirmed on Tuesday. He was 94. Iacocca's daughter told The Washington Post the cause of death was complications from Parkinson's disease.

    "Lee Iacocca was truly bigger than life and he left an indelible mark on Ford, the auto industry and our country," said Ford executive chariman Bill Ford. "Lee played a central role in the creation of Mustang. On a personal note, I will always appreciate how encouraging he was to me at the beginning of my career. He was one of a kind and will be dearly missed."

    Yeah, shocked me a tad.

    I guess I'm stuck in a 1992 time warp since it doesn't seem he should be that old.
    Of course that would mean he was running at age 62, which would be a spring chicken nowadays in some places.
