    Marty Balin, founder of Jefferson Airplane, has died at 76. He’s had some health issues in the last few years, but no cause of death was reported.

    RIP, Marty, and thanks for the music.

    I was more of a Jefferson Airplane fan then starship. They hit their peak in the 70's really didn't care for their 80s music. Rip Marty another master of the musical arts gone.

    Now is that Jefferson Airplane, Jefferson Starship, Starship or Jefferson? I always got confused about their names.

    Jefferson Airplane cranked out some great tunes. Big fan of their tunes... and Grace Slick.

    Adam Burke, animator (probably best known for his work at Pixar, to include Cars and The Incredibles, passed on October 7 after losing a battle to cancer. A friend of mine (who works at Pixar) said he was "a wonderful guy with a big heart." He also shepherded visits to children's hospitals as part of each Pixar film release.

    It saddens me to know that someone who brought so much joy to so many has been stolen by this awful disease. Yet his work will remain for continued joy for many years, perhaps scores of them. Most people won't leave that legacy, even if they live to be 90, so there's that.

    RIP, Adam, and thank you for sharing your big heart and talent for so long.

    I hadn't known Mr. Allen was ill; Bill always gets all the press.

    I better understand why he stepped out of M$ some time back. Apparently he'd been fighting lymphoma for ten years. RIP, Mr. Allen.
