    Boomers indeed! I'm 53 and it seems many entertainers, singers, personalities, etc, that I grew up with on TV, radio, etc. most of them are in their 70s and 80s now, the ones that are still around that is.

    Terry Wogan passed away on 31st January, remember that well, because that was the date I travelled to the UK, and was reading about it on BBC news with my phone in Moscow, during a stopover.

    Don't forget Patty Duke.

    Though I did notice that Doris Day is still alive and well at 93.

    RIP Marie Barone. Very underrated actress. She stole that show along with Peter Boyle.

    So often I look at BBC news, there's another entertainer gone. She was only 62.

    OK, so it's now confirmed and not a hoax.

    I vividly remember sneaking out of school and into the r-rated opening day of Purple Rain. I was 13 or 14. He was a genius and so vastly ahead of his time. He will be missed. :(
