"Snippy" did mention Jessye Norman's passing on the chat, without many details. Let's fill in some of those gaps in her life, and her incredible story. She always had been defined by her voice. A voice like no other since hers. She performed in operas round the world, in multiple languages, from German, Italian, French, and Spanish. What a loss. What a voice

NPR "All Things Considered" just did a short story on Ms. Norman. You could listen on their website later

Dihann Carol, 84 passes away. Tony winning actress was the first woman of color to win a Tony. She was a 'barrier' breaker. Both white and black audiences loved her persona!

Phycksed. Ommitted the/ (back slash) inside trailing [ ] brackets. Begging forgiveness "Snippy"!

Reread the post now!

Wild man dies:

Ginger Baker, one of the most innovative and influential drummers in rock music, has died at the age of 80.
A co-founder of Cream, he also played with Blind Faith, Hawkwind and Fela Kuti in a long and varied career.
His style combined the lyricism of jazz with the crude power of rock. One critic said watching him was like witnessing "a human combine harvester".
But he was also a temperamental and argumentative figure, whose behaviour frequently led to on-stage punch-ups.

Jazz really had an influence of Ginger. One of his most important influences was Gene Krupa. One of Jazz greatest drummers. Krupa's influence on the music of the late forties, and on into the sixties. Like baker the double bass drums were the big heart of time-keeping for a band![

Ginger Baker maybe the "first ginger" referring to being a redhead. Loved all his drumming and singing.
I remember when the "Blind Faith" LP was released. A "Super Group". There seems a small window of
time in rock history where "drum solos" were the thing.

I think ginger was a common term in England for redheads.

It's a common term amoung USA Railroaders.

It's also true you don't want to piss a Ginger off.

One way to get a guaranteed vasectomy.

Just heard about this guy Arte Johnson...

Arthur Stanton Eric Johnson (January 20, 1929 July 3, 2019) was an American comic actor who was a regular on television's Rowan & Martin's Laugh-In where he played characters including a German soldier with the catchphrase "verrrry interesting...", and an old man who habitually propositioned Ruth Buzzi's spinster character.

Who fell off the tricycle?

"Snippy" felt like he was him when he tested out the effectiveness of his helmet several years ago.
