From Fab Four FAQ 2.0's page:

R.I.P. Lauren Bacall 1924 - 2014

Word this evening of the passing of the 89 year-old actress. As for relevancy to this page, she was a neighbor of John and Yoko's, as she explains in this exchange with Larry King:

KING: You were at the Dakota when John Lennon was killed? You are there, aren't you? You are around.

BACALL: So it seems. I mean, when you put it that way. It's not too appealing.

KING: What do you remember about that night?

BACALL: That night I remember very clearly, too. Because I was in my bedroom with my dog, of course. Because I'm always with one or another of my dogs. And I heard this -- it was a shot, but it sounded like a backfire. And but there was something kind of different about it.

So I went to my kitchen and opened the window and looked in the courtyard. And I saw other people across the courtyard doing the same thing. Looking. Couldn't see anything. So I thought, well, I don't know what that was. It must have been a backfire.

And then I went back into the -- close the window and went and turned on the television for the 11:00 news. And the first news was John Lennon was shot.

KING: Did you know him in the building?

BACALL: Yes. I've met him before, yes. Liked him a lot.

She had something else in common with John, too: they both liked to whistle: http://theimmortaljukebox.com/.....en-bacall/

Very sad that we lost such a talent in Robin Williams the other day, and although most associate the many laughs he gave as his legacy, Robin Williams was a very good singer as well, just ask Sir George Martin:

 

 

His acting abilities beyond the realm of humour are very underrated and very few nailed such a versatile collection of outstanding roles.  My two personal favourites were his outstanding portrayal of Popeye (not an easy role and I don't think ANYONE could've pulled it off but him) and his work on Disney's Aladdin which, although animated, is probably the most "Robin" of all Robin Williams' performances, Peace & Love to Mr. Williams...:-)

And in honor of Williams’ many contributions to Disney -- most notably lending his voice to the Genie in Aladdin – the company paid tribute to him with this touching artwork created by Eric Goldberg, the supervising animator for the Genie.Image Enlarger

Disney's tribute to Robin. 

I still see the news of his death and think "no, he can't be dead!". Will take a bit of getting used to.

Apparently, Robin Wlliams' death may have been caused in part by his Parkinson's meds, a side effect of which is suicidal thoughts.

If I spoke prose you'd all find out, I don't know what I talk about.

Just read that Don Pardo passed away. Who didn't love his voice? I can still recite his voiceover for Weird Al's "I Lost on Jeopardy." RIP.

Don Pardo was also involved in this rather historic moment in American history:

Besides Jeopardy, he was also on the early days on The Price is Right:

And of course, all those years being the voice of Saturday Night Live:

RIP Don. We miss you. And yes, @parlance I can recite his voiceover in Weird Al too. "That's right Al, you lost, and let me tell you what you DIDN'T win!"  apple01&heart

Another one gone this year: Joan Rivers. For those who only know Joan in her later incarnation as a heavily Botoxed fashion critic and red-carpet staple, she was a real trailblazer for women comedians in the '60s, '70s and into the '80s. Didn't spare anyone with her humor, especially herself. An argument can be made that only Lucille Ball had more of an impact on female comedians than Joan did. (And Joan would always tell people that Lucille was the real queen.) Whoopi Goldberg, Kathy Griffin, Sarah Silverman, Rosie O'Donnell, Tina Fey, Maya Rudolph, Ellen DeGeneres, Amy Poehler... they all owe a huge debt to Joan.
