What the heck is going on this year? Is it just me or are the celebs dropping like flies.

So sad. She was full of light and love.

Mike - I started to make some flippant response about not being sure how flies drop, but it seems inappropriate.

Not sure what's going this year, but it's almost over.

Gilahi said...

la - Yeah, this one hit me harder than I would have expected. Not sure why. Peter, Paul & Mary meant a lot to the world of music. They always seemed very sincere in their causes.

A vibrant voice has been lost. RIP Mary Travers.

Gilahi said...

Janet - I couldn't agree more.

This really is sad. Their music was wonderful and their sincerity undoubted. That said, I think The Kingston Trio did a better version of "Where Have All the Flowers Gone," but that takes nothing away from the excellence of PP&M. Good bye, Mary.

Bilbo - She will be missed. I agree that the Kingston Trio did the definitive version of that song (along with many others), but this seemed appropriate as a goodbye song for Mary.
