RIP Gordon Lightfoot  :(

And Randy Bachman

Tim, not Randy, according to news reports anyway .

I'm familiar with BTO and Guess Who music, but not nearly as much as Grateful Dead. Besides the fact that I'm a phan of Gordon Lightfoot, and having seen him in concert once late in his career at the Beacon Theater, the Grateful Dead cover one, and only one Lightfoot song - Early Morning Rain. Phil Lesh is lead vocalist. Every Grateful Dead version of EMR is absolutely spectacular.

Yes indeed. There is a local radio station where I live that plays nothing but oldies but goodies. For the last couple of weeks before her death, he was playing a lot of Ike and Tina. It was one particular cut where she sings and he speaks. Great song but I have no idea what the title is…

Ed Ames has passed away. He sang some very romantic/thought provoking songs.
He was the one associated with the famous tomahawk throw on the Johnny Carson Show.

I’ve seen that clip from the Carson show. Couldn’t have been scripted any better. I watched the Daniel Boone series when I was a kid. I really enjoyed his singing

George Winston of Windham Hill fame has died at the early age of 73.  I've been a fan since the 80's.

RIP Coco Lee. Suicide. Totally unexpected.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Coco_Lee

Hong Kong/American singer best known as the singer of "A Love Before Time" from the Ang Lee movie Crouching, Tiger Hidden Dragon and the voice and singer in the Mandarin version of the Disney film, Mulan.

Saw her live many years ago in a free mini concert.
