    sorry, but dying before your time due to a pandemic isnt softened by your ripe old age. nice try.

    So sad. His son Carlton used to live a block away from me and we'd jam once-in-a-while.

    That sucks - what a talented guy he was - 2020 hasn’t taken a day off in the bad news department, that’s for sure...

    Come on man. We'd better all get a grip on what life is. Here's a hint....hiding alone in your home isn't "life".

    Its not a "ploy"...its an assertion. We can't "hide" our way to a better life. Life is full of risks...I have no idea why Charlie Pride was still performing at the age of 86. But don't pretend for a minute that "covid" was any more lethal to someone of that age than the flu or pneumonia would have been. At some point we'd better all take a look outside of our front doors and realize that life is to be found outside them.

    I've never heard of him until now, damn, only to know of someone just after they die is a terrible shame and the way of the media world. I'm not sure if I need to thank the media or curse it.
