    It's the end of 2017; as some call it, a dumpster-fire of a year. Though I am a few days early, here's to the first entry: the passing of 2017.

    Here's to 2018, may this thread see fewer entries than its predecessor....

    These days I've been watching videos on YouTube from Cayleigh Elise and Rob Dyke, these make vids about people who are deceased and/or missing.
    It brings awareness of these cases but it's likely no one reveals anything if they know. That is, for whatever reason it may be.
    Personally, I'm convinced that Maddie McCan was pre-planned for kidnap by her parents but obviously they'll always make themselves the victims. Because $$$.

    Based on what evidence do you draw that conclusion?
    Are you saying the parents sold their own daughter for financial gain?! Ridiculous!
    Judging by what I've seen of the case (and I don't know all the facts). They are guilty of extreme negligence by leaving their young children unattended.

    Dolores O'Riordan from The Cranberries. I really liked her voice, they were a fun band.

    Hope she doesn't turn into a Zombie.


    ...sorry, couldn't resist. I was saddened to hear of this loss, at such a young age, too.

    Me too. Even more scary is that she was my age....almost 6 months younger than I am, actually.

    Agreed with Clementine_3. She was only 46 and was in London for a recording session, too. No cause of death reported, either. :(

    RIP, Dolores, thanks for sharing your music and your voice. They will Linger a long while...

    Bassist Jim Rodford, dead at 76. I didn't much care for the Zombies, but I did enjoy the Kinks, and I liked Jim's touch on the e-bass anyway. As an aside, maybe it's just that I'm getting older, but 76 doesn't seem that old. Well, except for rock 'n roll band guys. With all the stories about drugs, it's amazing any of them made it past 50.

    Anyway, RIP, Jim. Thanks for thumping out some strong beats and helping to keep the rest of the band going strong.

    I was watching The Middle (Season 9, Episode 13) and at the end they dedicated the episode to Jerry Van Dyke. Nooooooooooooo! I loved this guy do much and wished he had been my grandpa. God dammit. 😞 RIP.
