Deathlist 2019 - not on the list

Just found out that Leon Redbone passed away recently ... he was only 69 but a wonderfully old soul.

There's this great article in Rolling Stone

http://www.rollingstone.com/music/music-news/leon-redbone-ragtime-singer-dead-842205/

I love this bit "A statement on Redbone’s website confirmed his death, though it did so with a sweet bit of humor and joking that he was actually 127 years old."

His song "Seduced" is one of my favourites

RIP Mr Redbone smiley - rose

Denise Nickerson, 62. Not a well-known actress by any means but she played the very memorable Violet Beauregarde in the original Willy Wonka. Just read her bio on Wiki, how very sad. A child actress, she found out as an adult that her parents had spent her earnings. Hit by a car at age 19, she was incapacitated for 8 months. She gave up acting aged 21. First husband died of a brain haemorrhage, 2nd marriage produced a son but ended in divorce. Her son and his wife cared for her after a stroke last year, but this month she overdosed on her meds. RIP Denise smiley - rose
