A Moment Of Silence, Please

Smooth Pop-Jazz singer Lou Rawls succumbed to brain and lung cancer today. Rawls was a three-time Grammy winner best remembered for Love Is a Hurtin' Thing and You'll Never Find Another Love Like Mine. He opened for the Beatles on their first American tour.

Barry Cowsill (group photo, far right), along with his siblings and his mother Barbara, formed The Cowsills in 1965. They were the inspiration for The Partridge Family. Barry had been living in New Orleans when Hurricane Katrina hit. He was missing for four months, when his body was discovered on a wharf on December 28. At the time of his death, Barry was working on a solo album. He was 54.

Rest in peace.


Very sad about Lou, but this is the first I've heard regarding Barry. "The Rain, the Park and Other Things" was a magical song in my childhood.

So sad for the Cowsills who seem to have suffered a lot down the years.
