I don't know if this thread is only for celebrities, but rest in peace to Shameera Harris. She goes to my school, I didn't really know here because she wasn't in my grade, but it's horrible anyway. Apparently her dad was drunk and started driving as she got out and dragged her along. She was only 12. It's horrible to see someone so young pass away. 

That's terrible and heartbreaking for everyone who knew her. So damn young and such a horrific way to go, what a waste of a live. How on earth does the family and friends come to terms with it?

Oh that's so sad. And she was only 12, she had barely began to live her life.

A 17 y/o boy in my year comitted suicide last week. He threw himself down the stairwell at the top of my corridor. It's sad, and infuriating, that there was hundreads of people there, and yet nobody was with him in his last moments.

I hate this thread.

That is horrible Emily. And that he felt there was no other way, no help available to him, no one to turn to. Horrible and terribly sad thought that some people feel that its just too dark and hopeless to go on.

Don't know how familiar people are with his comedy, but David Brenner, a favorite of Johnny Carson's, passed away recently. This from The Examiner:

David Brenner and John Lennon: This weekend's edition of “Dennis Mitchell's 'Breakfast With the Beatles” will include Dennis' interview with the late David Brenner, who tells how he met and befriended John Lennon. You can hear it on air on various affiliates around the country and it'll be posted Sunday at http://www.beatlesradioshow.com and on iTunes.

Came across this  to Gabriel Garcia Marquez, who passed away this week:

Hoy se nos fue el gran escritor, novelista, periodista GABRIEL GARCÍA MÁRQUEZ. Triste noticia para el mundo literario! Les dejo un fragmento acerca de lo que opinaba sobre The Beatles...

En 1963 en su casa sólo tenía dos discos: una selección de preludios de Debussy y el primer disco de los Beatles. Decía que “nuestro pasado personal se aleja de nosotros desde el momento que nacemos, pero sólo lo sentimos pasar cuando se acaba un disco”.

Ese año contó que “el mundo fue igual desde mi nacimiento hasta que los Beatles empezaron a cantar. Todo cambió entonces. Los hombres se dejaron crecer el cabello y la barba, las mujeres aprendieron a desnudarse con naturalidad, cambió el modo de vestir y de amar, y se inició la liberación del sexo y de otras drogas para soñar... sobre todo, fue el aprendizaje de una relación distinta entre los padres y los hijos, el principio de un nuevo diálogo entre ellos que había parecido imposible durante siglos”.

 

The awkward Bing translation - hopefully you get the jist:

Today we went the great writer, novelist, journalist GABRIEL GARCÍA MÁRQUEZ. Sad news for the literary world! Here is an excerpt about what they believed about The Beatles...

In 1963 in his house had only two discs: a selection of preludes of Debussy and the first disc of the Beatles. He said that "our personal past away from us from the moment we are born, but only sorry pass when a disc is finished".

That year he told that "the world was the same from my birth until the Beatles began to sing. Then, everything changed. Men let themselves grow hair and beard, women have learned how to undress with naturalness, changed the mode of dress and loving, and began the release of sex and other drugs to dream... especially, it was learning of a different relationship between parents and children, the beginning of a new dialogue between them that had seemed impossible for centuries".

I was saddened to hear that Ann B. Davis passed away yesterday, 1 June. Those of us who are of a certain age remember her as Alice on The Brady Bunch.

Just read that Gerry Goffin, Carole King's ex-husband and former writing partner passed away. What an incredible musical legacy.

Very sad news.  So many of the songs they wrote were excellent and will continue to stand the test of time - and of course had such an influence on John and Paul.

John & Paul loved their songs. Thanks for all of the great songs, Gerry.

We've lost another comedic talent. Patsy Byrne (Nursie from Blackadder) has passed away. Rest in peace.

I came across this touching tribute to Rik Mayall by Harry Enfield, another one of my favorite comedians.

It's interesting that the first episode of The New Statesman is called Happiness Is A Warm Gun.

From Beatles News:

Steve Rossi, half of the legendary comedy team Allen & Rossi, passed away on Sunday. Allen & Rossi appeared many times on the Ed Sullivan Show, including all three times the Beatles appeared on the show. "He was a great man and a great friend," fellow Las Vegas performer Wayne Newton said. "He will be missed dearly."

Quotes from the Las Vegas Sun article:

Rossi always grinned as he remembered the appearances with The Beatles on “Ed Sullivan,” saying, “I spoke to John and to Paul, and they had a terrific sense of humor. They knew who we were. It was, ‘Mr. Rossi, what a pleasure to meet you.’ I said, ‘We really are the stars of this show, whether you want to believe it or not. That’s why 76 million people are tuning in!’ They laughed. We only had about 9 million on our other appearances.”

*snip*

During the final days of Rossi’s life, Allen hung a familiar photo in his partner’s hospice room.

“I put the picture of us with The Beatles over his bed,” Allen said. “He loved that. I said, ‘I don’t want you to forget this.’ ”
