This thread is for general news and discussions of recent deaths – of celebrities, or otherwise notable individuals.

 

Actually, that sounds a bit depressing. But hopefully this thread can, at least, let us appreciate those who are no longer with us.

 

Last year witnessed a staggering number of deaths, and I expect the numbers will continue to increase as the Boomer generation begins to die off.

Talk serious that old guy Fidel Castro had to die anyway. He was very old, ugly and had to perish to renew the world.

In Russia, the greatest loss of 2016 was the Alexandrov Ensemble choir. Nearly all of them were killed in aircrash in December 2016. We will not forget them:

The second great loss was the Doctor Liza - the prominent children's doctor Yelizaveta Glinka. She saved many lives in Donbass & was killed in the same Tu-154 aircraft. One of true heroes of our time...

But this is our world: the best people are often leaving us too early, while obvious scum are still here, alive and thriving... and still i like one phrase was said in regard to this: "many great people died in 2016, and many others were born, even if we don't know them yet"

Gene Cernan, last man to walk on Moon, dies aged 82

US astronaut Gene Cernan - the last man to walk on the Moon - has died aged 82.

America's space agency Nasa said it was "saddened by the loss" of the retired spaceman.

Captain Cernan was one of only three people to go to the Moon twice and the last man to leave a footprint on the lunar surface in 1972.

The final words he spoke there were: "We leave as we came and, God willing, as we shall return with peace and hope for all mankind."

He was the commander of the Apollo 17 mission at the time.

Not sure how famous she was outside the UK, but this is pretty big news here today in Britain, and the main story on BBC News.

Former 'It Girl' Tara Palmer-Tomkinson found dead

Socialite Tara Palmer-Tomkinson has been found dead aged 45.

The star, who rose to fame in the 1990s as a hard-partying "It Girl", had received treatment in 2016 for a non-malignant brain tumour.

A woman in her 40s was found dead at Palmer-Tomkinson's flat in Bramham Gardens, South Kensington, at 13:40 GMT, the Met Police said.

Prince Charles, a close friend of the star's family, led tributes and said he was "deeply saddened" by her death.

Palmer-Tomkinson, a former Sunday Times columnist and reality TV star, was a regular on the London party scene in the 1990s and 2000s.

North Korea killing: video appears to show attack on Kim Jong-nam

Monday 20 February 2017 05.04 GMT

A Japanese broadcaster has released what appears to be CCTV footage of a deadly poison attack on the half-brother of North Korean leader Kim Jong-un by two women at a Malaysian airport last week.

Kim Jong-nam, who lived most of his life outside his home country, died en route to hospital from a seizure after complaining last Monday that a woman had sprayed chemicals on his face.

The low-quality security camera footage, displayed by Fuji TV, shows two angles of the attack in which a man, believe to be Kim Jong-nam, is grabbed from behind by a woman in a white top. She appears to put her hands over his face and then swiftly walks away. A second woman is also seen leaving the scene.

Clearer closed-circuit video showed Kim Jong-nam, in a blue shirt and grey jacket, stumbling and wiping his face after the attack, seeking help from airport staff and walking unassisted to the terminal’s medical centre.

It was only last month that I said to myself "I can't believe Chuck Berry's still alive." It makes sense that he'd pass on now.

 

Here's one of the men who built rock and roll. So many rock stars were born, lived, and died (some even of old age) in the time since he released his first album. 

 

"If you tried to give rock and roll another name, you might call it 'Chuck Berry'." -- John Lennon


And remember my friend, future events such as these will affect you in the future.
