    Gosh. Some headline act for Glastonbury this year.

    Now Paul Kantner has died. Rest in peace.

    You look at the demographics and it will be like this for a good few years

    Deaths amongst the elderly (or those getting on with maybe some accelerated living when younger) increase after Christmas, a combination of the effects of cold and a determined attempt to hang on for one last Christmas.

    There do seem to be more than usual this year amongst musicians.

    As we grow older so do the musical (and otherwise) heroes of our youth.
    I am of that age where the expectation of such losses is higher

    Can't think why you're bothering to post then.

    If you'd said David Cassidy or Brian Connolly had died, I'd know who you were talking about. I am bothering to post for the same reason as you I expect.

    I somehow missed that news. What a shame. Always had a soft spot for him.

    My favourite, from '69..........

    @GLsghost: Thank you for the clip of Jefferson Airplane! While I was watching, it suddenly came home to me that Woodstock was getting on for fifty years ago! Sobering thought!
