one of a kind. Girl groups in 60’s were special

Saw her on New Years Eve back in the day at The Ritz.
Great show!
Haven’t been back to the city in many years. Most of the places I went to are gone these days.
McSorleys and Cafe Wa might be the only ones left.
It's interesting that in her latter years

She got hooked up with Joey Ramone and the whole NY punk scene. Recorded a version of Johnny Thunders' You Can't Put Your Arms around a Memory

For those of you thinking, man it seems like we lose someone

every other day...

It's only gonna get worse.

Media, the entertainment industry including TV, movies, singers etc. Sports. They've always been around but they've never been such a diverse and pervasive part of our lives until say the mid 50's and 60's onward.

And every year since then there have been more and more "stars". Well, most of them were in their 20's & 30's back then... and now their getting into 70's and 80's. So you take those that are reaching avg life expectancy and add in the ones that die "too young" and well... we're losing it seems like one every other day or so.

I noticed it when we started losing baseball Hall of Famers like Hank Aaron, Joe Morgan, Tom Seaver etc and I thought about all the contemporaries of his that are really getting up their in age.

In any year we're gonna lose people like Pete Rose, Rod Carew, Sandy Koufax, Nolan Ryan, Johnny Bench etc. And that's just baseball.

I saw Phil Collins on stage a while ago and my heart just crushed as I think about how amazing he was the last time I saw him before.

Anyways, sorry to be a downer. But anyone who's on here and been a Giants fan near as long as I have and even longer... the number of "great ones" and even nearly great ones we're gonna start losing is gonna be DE PRESS ING as hell lol.
Thanks to the Money Man
