Ted Kennedy
Eunice Kennedy Shriver

The first song my phone played in the car this morning was "Forward To Death."

you've been waiting to use this one, haven't you?

your use of the british spelling of "honour" is intriguing.

From todays news.....
 
The Hillsborough County medical examiner?s office Friday said Mays had last used cocaine days before his death. The report said that although Mays died from heart disease, cocaine use was a contributing cause of death.

They still were musical collaborators. I just hope this doesn't mean Blink is gonna cancel Sunday. I guess we'll have to wait and see.

Echo And The Bunnymen keyboardist Jake Brockman died on Tuesday evening in a motorcycle accident.

Brockman, 53, was traveling on the Isle Of Man in the Irish Sea when he collided with a converted ambulance, according to a World Entertainment News article. He was taken to hospital, but died in an intensive care unit.

"Jake was always a classic bike enthusiast, he loved sailing thought he was invariably seasick," his wife Sally Mundy said in a statement. "Music was central to Jake's life."

Brockman joined Echo And The Bunnymen in 1989 and was to appear on their upcoming new album, The Fountain.

Unfortunately, this isn't the only motorcycle-related tragedy to affect Echo And The Bunnymen. Drummer Pete De Freitas died in a motorcycle accident in 1989.

People Who Died: Jim Carroll, Poet and Punk Rocker, Is Dead at 60
Bummer.  Somewhere I've got a signed copy of the basketball diaries that he signed at a reading in philly.  The book I got him to sign had been chewed up a little by a dog and he asked me jokingly "did your dog eat this?".  I answered yes and he seemed to think that was pretty funny.

That would be the greatest tribute imaginable.
