Farewell Joan..

Joan Rivers was an astonishingly bold comedian. You were never quite sure if she was joking or really meant what she said.

Generations of people all over the world were entertained by her. She stood as an inspiration for other female comedians. No one ever doubted she would be around forever.

It comes as sad news that forever just ended. Days after throat surgery that went wrong somehow, Joan Rivers slipped away. She was 81 years old.

Back in the nineties I was sitting at a table next to Joan Rivers in the Concorde Hotel, a famous place in the Catskill region of New York. She was very quiet, just enjoying a meal. A waiter came over to the table and said "Excuse me, but dogs are not allowed in the restaurant". She had a carry bag with a small very well behaved Chihuahua in it next to her feet. Her answer to the gentleman was "The Chihuahua is in the bag.. and the bag is in the restaurant. Are bags allowed?" The waiter laughed and went about his work.

Such are the wonderful banters of a great lady that we will all miss.

Godspeed Joan!

Casey Kasem has passed on

Sunday 6/15/2014, Casey Kasem passed away at the age of 82. It was Father's Day, and perhaps it was a special day as he no longer had to keep his feet on the ground and reach the stars. He could now go there himself.

Most people knew him as the host of America's Top 40, but Casey did other things that most of us never knew. One of his specialties was the voice of Shaggy on the Scooby Doo animated series.

Recently, Casey Kasem was at the heart of a dispute between family members as he withered away. His now widow was accused of isolating him from his daughters. In the end his daughters won out and were given rights to stop medication and a feeding tube he was receiving.

We will miss Casey Kasem. Until such time as we join him we all should follow his most famous words which he used at the end of every broadcast. "Keep your feet on the ground and keep reaching for the stars."

Neil Armstrong, R.I.P.

Neil Armstrong joined the space program in 1962, to achieve one of the greatest honors a man could dream of. That was the first man to step foot on the moon!

You probably have heard it a thousand times "One small step for man, one giant leap for mankind". These were the words uttered by Neil as he stepped onto the lunar surface in 1969.

Mr. Armstrong left NASA in 1971 to become a teacher of aerospace engineering. He was a modest man who really did not want to be in the spotlight. He just loved space, and loved being a part of a successful voyage. He was superman so to speak. Everyone knew who he was that watched him, but he kept pretty quiet about it all going forward.

Mr. Armstrong died on Saturday at the age of 82 after a failed heart surgery. Another great leaves our world for the next.

May your future explorations be as great as those you have already achieved Mr. Armstrong. Godspeed!

Donna Summer Passes on..

The legendary Donna Summer passed away this morning (May 17, 2012) at the age of 63.

The Disco Queen herself influenced many great performers. So many people grew up with her hits in and out of the clubs during the late seventies. Donna's biggest hits were from 1978 to 1980.

An interesting fact most did not know is that Bruce Springstein wrote some of her songs.

I remember spinning her singles in the clubs (yes I was a DJ too) and watching the dance floor come alive. What a time we all had!

Now Donna leaves us for a better place. Godspeed..
