Mary Wilson, co-founder of the Supremes at the age of 76. No details but it was a 'sudden death' as only two days ago she put out a video saying she was working on new solo material for release. https://variety.com/2021/music/news/...er-1234903764/

Yes Ray knew him and looked after his house when he was back in the UK. Ray showed us where he lived.

I started going to Anfield in 1970, I assumed I had seen him play, I just checked and I never did, possibly in the reserves, but not in the first team.

Bunny Wailer, 73. He was always one of my favorite reggae musicians -- "Blackheart Man" is such a great album. My favorite Wailers album was "Concrete Jungle" because of the backing harmonies of Peter and Bunny -- to me it was never the same with the I-Threes.

Bunny Wailer, Reggae Superstar
