Oh? Aw. I always liked her on Grace'. (i'm a little surprised she made it to almost 90, as she was a lady of some size)


Here's one that made me perk my ears up when I heard about it; The greatness of Marvin Seese has passed on to the next plain apparently.


He's an R&B artist mostly known for his song "Candy Licker", where he proclaims to be the only brother who'll perform that most sacred acts of admiration on a lady. :mrgreen: It kinda became a running theme for his later releases.

The Hardline did a segment on him some months ago, as their producer and a bandmate of his stumbled across some early Sease after a rained out gig.
Audio here.

Kenneth Mars, actor.
http://movies.msn.com/movies/article.as ... &GT1=28103
He did a couple of films for Mel Brooks (Young Frankenstein and the original Producers), but I remember him in What's Up, Doc, the only Streisand movie my family got to like.

Bob Cook of the "Never Missed a Super Bowl" club has also passed. He had to miss out on this past game.
