Don't do that man.   

David Roth the magician, not David Lee Roth, the lead singer of Van Halen and the person we actually think about when someone mentions that David Roth died.

Thought you lot over there would have picked up on this first.

For old punks my age over here this one stood out...

"Sylvain Sylvain, New York Dolls guitarist, dies at 69

The New York Dolls were one of the greatest influences on punk rock, on both sides of the Atlantic"

If I never have to hear the phrase “wall of sound” ever again then his death was worth it.

Imagine dating an unstable girlfriend that blows her head off, and you get blamed for it.

Makes you not want to date bat ---steaming pile of meadow muffin--- crazy women anymore. 

There is a lesson in there somewhere....  :dizzy:

He had a history of getting drunk and waving guns around at women, I think the odds are pretty good he pulled the trigger.

As somebody who worked in the car stereo industry for a few years, this is what I think of when I hear "wall of sound".

So who's going to die next?   Sir Patrick Stewart?  Bob Newhart?   

2021 is shaping up to be almost as crappy as 2020.

All true!
Only hard and fast rule that I'm aware of is, if you come in, you're goin out.

At this point if you make it to 78 as a guy or 82 as a gal you are already on the good side of the curve!

In the US at least...

And more importantly and relevant to our demographic, he played General Chang in Star Trek VI:  The Undiscovered Country.   

I guess the answer is "not to be"  :(
