I know this is the right place but it might be the wrong time if anyone was a fan of Dr. John.  He passed away of a heart attack.

Thanks for linking that! I didn't know who Dr. John was. Really nice performance in the video. Even though I enjoy listening to Jazz/Blues, my knowledge of the players is so minimal.

Terribly sad.

I know this might be pushing the definition of celebrity, but thought this deserved to be here.

Grant Thompson, also known as The King of Random on youtobe, died earlier this week in a paragliding accident. 38 years old, he leaves behind a wife and 4 children.

This guy's channel was one of the first ones I ever hit the "Subscribe" button on.

the fastest woman on 4 wheels, Jessi Combs passed on August 27th while trying to beat her own land speed record of 483.2mph that she set back in october.

https://www.cnn.com/2019/08/28/us/jessi-combs-race-car-driver-death-trnd/index.html

you may remember her as host of Overhaulin' and as a temporary host on Mythbusters whilst Kari was away on maternity leave.

"On August 27, 2019 at approximately 4:00PM the Harney County 911 Center received a call reporting that a jet car attempting to break a land speed record on the Alvord Desert had crashed leading to one fatality," the sheriff's office said.

Boo.  Lead singer of the Cars died.  Not one of my favorite bands but still a staple of the '80s.

He seemed content, though.

"It's kind of weird because it's like a lifetime," Ocasek told the magazine, looking back at the history of The Cars. "It is a lifetime. I had three families during that time. They are like lives that go by and millions of people and things and artists and writers and business people and fans. ... It's a lot of stuff. It's been a pretty eventful life, I can say."

RIP Rip.

https://www.npr.org/2019/10/07/767788731/rip-taylor-comedian-know-for-his-camp-and-confetti-dies-at-84

Quote
Rip Taylor, the comedian who became a fixture of 1970s game shows with his outrageous antics, flamboyant style and signature confetti-throwing, has died at age 84.

His publicist, Harlan Boll, confirmed Taylor died Sunday in Beverly Hills, Calif.

Taylor's spanned more than 40 years and encompassed Broadway, Las Vegas, film and television.

Born Charles Taylor in Washington, D.C., he got his start as a stand-up comic playing clubs in the Catskills after he'd served in the Army during the Korean War.

In a 1992 interview with United Press International, Taylor acknowledged that much of his early material consisted of jokes stolen from USO tours he'd seen.

His first national television appearance came in 1963 on The Ed Sullivan Show, where he became known as the "crying comedian" for a routine in which he cried on stage as he begged the audience to laugh at his jokes.

"I sat on a stool telling jokes, and nobody was laughing," he told UPI in 1992. "In desperation, I pretended to cry as I begged them to laugh. That killed 'em."

Taylor went on to make some 2,000 guest appearances on such shows as The Hollywood Squares, Match Game, The Gong Show and Super Password.
He was also a frequent guest on The Merv Griffin Show, The Tonight Show and Late Night With David Letterman. He also made a cameo on The Monkees.

In the 1970s, Taylor hosted The $1.98 Beauty Show. Created by The Gong Show's Chuck Barris, it was a spoof of traditional beauty pageants, where contestants won such prizes as a bouquet of rotten vegetables, or the top prize of $1.98.
