This seems to be a bad month for celebrities.

I wonder how many more will pass away before May rolls around?

One. Celebrity deaths always come in threes. Most likely it will be a musician on drugs involved in a horse-related accident.

Well, if it doesn't have to be limited to April only, and can include anything that's happened in the past thirty days, it's already happened. Randy Castillo, who played drums for various artists (including Ozzy Osbourne and Motley Crue) passed away on March 26 after battling cancer. While his "celebrity" status may be in question, there was never a question about his musicianship.

"I always thought that it was amazing that Andre Rison got back together with her after she TORCHED his million dollar mansion."

Seriously. All you need to get a second chance with someone is to torch their house. Or just date Andre Rison. It all works out.

On a semi-related note, I just read that the lady who created Barbie, Ruth Handler, died in LA today at the age of 85. I dunno if that counts as #3 though.

It's too bad because I liked TLC and LeftEye especially. She was cool. but one thing bugs me. as soon as it happened VH1 and MTV put on TLC lovefests all weekend long. As mentioned in the Layne Staley thread, there was barely anything on either channel about AIC. Seems a little unbalanced to me.

Teenyboppers (eMpTyV's ratings source) [heart] TLC. Layne Staley: not so much.

Reminds me of when Kurt Cobain died. Remember how the singer from Blind Melon died a few weeks later, and no-one gave a fuck? Admittedly, it's not quite the same thing, but a life's a life.

You probably should go read the Lane Staley thread in this same folder. I pretty much said the same thing. You can imagine the feeling of deja vu I got when I read this.
