I have thought about the same as Mikael. So many has died in just a few short years. I'll try to recount some at least. Lemmy, Keith Emerson and Greg Lake the same year. George Duke, Jon Lord, Maurice White, Richie Havens, Chris Squire, John Wetton, Prince, George Michael, Amy Winehouse. Some of the young, others older. I can't even remember all. But there has certainly been great die-off just the last few years.
So very sad news.... - but the fantastic lyrics and albums will live forever.

....and the list of dead heros in resent years also includes: Tom Petty, Rick Parfitt, Glen Frey, Gary Moore, Ronnie James Dio - and many more i'm sure.

I guess it all comes down to my/our own age. I am born in 1964 so most of my musical heroes are born i late 1940's or early 1950's - so sadly enough it's kind af natural....
Still too young.

Great singer and fabulous lyricist.
I always wondered if he knew how much his work is appreciated still today by a bunch of loyal fans, as he never appeared online here on the forum, or on facebook.
Yes. He did.
Would you like to tell more, did you know Lol? I'm a curious person :oops:
... and out!

Very sad indeed, particularly as he had only recently received the gift of life free from dialysis.
RIP Lol.
Thank you - I love you all!

Does anyone know if Lol ever commented on his nickname in more modern times became a popular internet acronym? One of the best known even. Even if he wasn't ROFL I'm a bit curious.
