    Another of the musical greats is gone: Jerry Jeff Walker. Probably his most famous song is "Mr. Bojangles," covered by countless musicians -- including Bob Dylan. If Dylan covers your song, you KNOW you've got a great song!

    RIP Bobby Ball
    Yes, I am of that generation.

    Just had a message from my brother, saying that John Sessions has passed away. Though he had an eclectic career, I will always remember him for his impressions on Stella Street.

    R.I.P. I most remember John from Who's Line is it anyway? I watched that a lot during the early shows.

    RIP Bobby Ball.
    Such a funny man, I am sure he is clowning around up in heaven.

    RIP John Sessions.
    Terrific comedian, especially with the series "Spitting Image".

    RIP Sir Sean Connery.
    I don't really need to say much about this man. He was a very special man and have him to thank for he magical franchise we all still love today and into the future.
    RIP Sean. ^:)^

    One of his "dubbing doubles", actor Claude Giraud, has passed away yesterday, aged 84. He had dubbed Sir Sean in The Name of the Rose. But he's more well-known for his aprt as arab revolutionary Slimane in The mad Adventures of Rabbi Jacob, by Gérard Oury, with Louis de Funes.

    Singer, comedian and entertainer Des O’Connor has sadly passed away at the age of 88.
    Well known to the British public, and the butt of many jokes from Morecambe and Wise over the years.
    RIP

    Sad to hear of the death of Des O'Connor at the age of 88. He always seemed like such a good-natured man who didn't mind a laugh at his own expense. Here he is on one of his shows with the brilliant stand-up comic Mick Miller:



    And a famous cigar advert that referenced his alleged bad singing:

    Zeus the Stubborn Husky. He was always providing laughs for me. Animals are just as important for this thread as humans are.

    Oh no. :( I heard about a month ago that he was doing well. He is over Rainbow Bridge now, no more troubles. My coldolances to his family, i'm sure Kaden will miss him. His little tantrums were so entertaining, bless him.

    RIP Zeus

    @MaxCasino. My condolences on your loss. I like to think that someday – somewhere – we will all be reunited with our friends.

    As @Fire_and_Ice_Returns stated, pets are a big part of our lives and families. In fact, sometimes they become the glue that holds them together – especially in stressful times.
    RIP Zeus.

    Thank you all for your support. Zeus may not have been my dog, but as said already, animals have a special effect and relationship on humans, owner or not.

    RIP Diego Maradona. He was still a young man.
  • R.I.P. Maradona great player, certainly the best of his era and I was lucky enough to see those games on TV in my youth. 60 is too young though I don't think any of us are surprised.

    RIP Maradona. Certainly a legend in the world of soccer. Still not convinced by one of your goals. But the other, truly was brilliant.
