American rock'n'roller Bobby Rydell is in a "serious condition".


This message from his facebook page

Had to cancel my upcoming Australia tour due to some health issues. Can't leave the country until I have a major surgery. Doc says I will make a full recovery so think good thoughts for me everyone. Bobby

Maryport is a disappointment for which there is no cure, but the annual Deathrace thread hereabouts provides welcome distraction.

Rocker Ronnie Montrose, dies from prostate cancer age 64.

Edit to add- He goes on my personal DDP List of the Missed. He made the master list of Ronnies but was not thought a viable candidate.


Although Ronnie Montrose was suffering from cancer at the time of his death, it has now been revealed that he actually died due to a self inflicted gunshot wound.

Things fall apart. It's scientific

Wouldn't they have noticed the big hole in his head at the time of his death?

One of Buddy Holly's Crickets, bass player Joe B. Mauldin, might be worth keeping an eye on:

Mauldin is dealing with a health issue and wants his privacy respected. On Thursday, Curtis [another Cricket] said in an email, “He is having surgery in a few days and cannot go to Cleveland.

But blaming me is blaming God;

Replacements guitarist Slim Dunlap suffered a major stroke back in February.
He's still on the mend, but..

He then fell and hit his head, resulting in a left vertebral artery dissection and a right subarachnoid hemorrhage


latest news is

..he is sharp and aware, his speech is fine, and all of the nurses and doctors have commented on his unique sense of humor, The bad news is that he cannot move the right side of his body and will be in for some serious rehab. They will be giving him more tests tomorrow to determine the extent of the damage.

Singer Bobby Vee's website has been updated - in almost Banshee-esque prose - to announce that he is suffering from Alzheimer's disease.

This past year has been truly life taking it's own course without words that can describe the mystery and conflict that none of us can know :scratchhead: . So without a song or a script I am stepping on to a stage that we will all share: The mystery of life.


More here.
