Just this morning, I learned that entertainer George Gaynes has just passed away at age 98. He was know for his roles in Tootsie and the Police Academy movies, but I also remember him as photography/building manager/foster parent Henry Warnimont on Punky Brewster. George was also a singer with a very powerful baritone voice, and one of my favourite vocal performances of his was featured in an episode of Punky (in which the late Andy Gibb guess starred as a piano teacher) where he sang the following lyric:
Don’t say salami
Don’t say bananas
Don’t say minestrone
Say cheese, baby, say cheese!
Rest in peace, George, and keep having them saying cheese in the afterlife!
In this video, Linda Rondstadt talks about her music career and her battle with Parkinson’s disease, which robbed her of her legendary soprano voice, which can still be heard on her classic hit recordings such as You’re No Good, When Will I Be Loved, and Don’t Know Much (her 1989 megahit duet with Aaron Neville). Watch this video, and Linda will pull at your heartstrings as she tells her story.
Damn! Sir Paul’s got skills, don’t he? At least, I think so, especially in his push for #MeatFreeMonday. What do you think?
Maurice White, the leader of legendary R&B group, Earth, Wind, and Fire, has passed away today. He was 74. Since the 70s, his band has scored hits with such songs as September, Shining Star, After The Love Is Gone, and Let’s Grove. Rest in peace, Maurice.
