    Kenny Rogers

    Says natural causes but it seems to me that he hasn't been doing well for awhile.

    RIP, Kenny.
    I'll always remember him like this:

    I remember in college that the girl in the dorm room beside me played the 45 record 'Lady" over and over repeatedly. I could hear snifflng and singing while she ate frosting out of a can with a spoon.. I HATE that song to this day.

    He was, by surprise, my first Concert. I was doing Disneyland, back in the late 60's, with my Cousins. We were in Tomorrow Land, and this huge fountain started to rise upwards. Turns out it was a Stage and Kenny Rogers and the First Edition were playing. A VERY fond memory. RIP Ken.

    That made me LOL for real, thank you for that. Dorm room music can be indelible in one’s mind...I had never heard of Jimmy Buffett until moving into my dorm, where the girl two doors down played “Margaritaville” on repeat while moving in...over 8 hours straight, same song. I now understand it’s a thing, but it wrecked that part of my brain.

    ”Lady” was pretty sad, totally brings me back to that year it came out. Glad no one ruined it for me, though, by putting it on repeat. And eating frosting out of a can via spoon should always be behind closed doors...no one needs to see that!

    Back to Kenny Rogers, his Roasters, and his ear worms...

    YEW GOTTA KNOOOOOOOW whennn-tuh HOOOOLD umm

    I guess we've all had days like that - but with me it was Hagen Daas.

    Priceless! For me it's the bad plastic surgery pics, duet with Dolly, the Roasters sign that kept Kramer awake for days on Seinfeld, and constant playing of The Gambler on the radio.

    I think death by natural causes is possible considering Kenny's age. We all know that people often accumulate common age-related maladies as we get older. I've noticed that performers seem to have higher combinations of them than the average person. He also lived longer than the average American male who's median average age at death is currently 76 years.

    All deaths are really from natural causes.

    I have two friends who knew Kenny. One is a writer who is famous in her genre. They were neighbors. The other one is a retired English/drama teacher who's husband used to be a big wig something or other of the CMAs. She has photos of them attending the program and shots with Tammy Wynette and some others. Both women have nothing but good things to say about him.

    We could.
    But I'm gonna suggest that we don't do that though.
    Unless it's important to you, then; we can.

    Always nice to hear about celebrities being good people, especially if you like their work.

    I so remember he had a song in the movie: The Big Lebowski (1998) Just dropped in (to see what condition my condition was in) Kenny Rogers and the first Edition.
