    In 1988, two of Kilzer's songs, Red Blue Jeans and Green Yellow & Red, made Billboard's rock chart. Roseanne Cash recorded two of his songs, 707 and Green Yellow & Red. Dobie Gray, Jimmie Davis, Trace Adkins and Maria Muldaur also recorded his songs. Kilzer's third album, Scars, was released two months ago. He was a celebrity in Memphis. Does that count?

    No, but that hasn't deterred you yet.

    You need to ask yourself this question: If he was alive and well, and you mentioned his name on this forum, would any of the dozen members here have heard of him?

    All it takes is one person to second the candidate.
    Faking the application can result in 20 years in prison.


    That said, I don't know him and can't provide the second. Sounds like he had a decent career. If he would have made it into a documentary like the Wrecking Crew, I may have known him. I knew of the WC before the doc, but didn't know any of them by name till after.

    There are plenty of questionable people who have been seconded in. Some famous people (at least in Canada) who have not.

    I also cannot provide a second in this case.

    We all remember this fine moment from 2018, right?

    It's not complicated. Someone nominates, and someone seconds. Not all offerings are worthy, but I don't mind them being mentioned here. Maybe some inventor type wasn't really a celebrity, but I'm okay with taking a minute out of my day to read about his or her accomplishments.

    I get it now: We should post only the biggest obituaries, such as James Ingram, Albert Finney, Peter Tork, André Previn, Luke Perry.....and Felicity Huffman's career. :D

    You can post who you want. With no second it just won’t count.

    This wasn’t 1/2 the drama of 2017 when that architect died.

    Okay, I'm relatively new to this site so somebody will have to explain to me what it means to "second" an obituary and what Mister Skiing means by saying a non-seconded obituary "won't count." Won't count for what? At the end of the year, does someone here make a compilation video showing only the major stars who died? Does Mister scotch hold a mass memorial service for them? Do we take up a collection for their families? Do we wear sackcloth and ashes? Recite "Baruch dayan ha'emet"? What?

    They just don’t count unless they are seconded. You won’t be able to use their picture in the celebrity death thread avatar week. We used to update a list but then they upgraded the software and it’s no longer allowed. Plus it’s a lot of work.

    So unseconded people are not really dead.

    Oy vey, of course not! I was brought up as a Baptist. My mom taught Sunday school and my dad was an usher and deacon. Thank you for asking.

    We used to add the names and dates of all the celebs (that we agreed were celebs by having a second person recognize them) to the first post of the thread each year. But it became too much work to keep track of it all.

    You'll get the hang of our odd little corner of the web soon enough. You're already fitting in nicely with the other kids, and adding your own brand of goofiness to the mix. We'll either all get used to each other, or we'll all have seizures. Nobody could tell the difference anyway, so have fun with it.

    My "own brand of goofiness." Gee, do ya think I should try to take out a patent or trademark on it?

    You signed your rights to that over to the DRC when you accepted the terms and conditions when you joined.

    Gotta read the fine print.
