And then there were none. Tompall & The Glaser Brothers had 16 top-40 country hits including Rings, Gone Girl, California Girl, Lovin' Her Was Easier and Ain't It All Worth Living For. Tompall, Jim and Chuck also recorded solo. Tompall died in August 2013, Jim died in April 2019, and now.......

The Glaser Brothers’ Chuck Glaser Dies At 83
Is he part of the Glaser family that owns the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Manchester United?

If so, second.

If not, nevermind.

There are indeed three Glazer Brothers – note the spelling, Mister semi – who co-own the Buccaneers with their sister. They inherited the team after their father died in 2014. Bryan, Joel, Edward and Darcie are not related to the now-deceased Glaser Brothers – note the spelling, Mister semi.

In 1960, Carl Reiner created Head Of The House, a sitcom about a television comedy writer. In the pilot episode, the character of Sally Rogers was played by Sylvia Miles. After the networks showed no interest in the pilot, all the roles were recast and The Dick Van Dyke Show was born, with Sally Rogers played by Rose Marie. Ah, what might have been......but Miles did have roles in more than 40 movies and tv episodes including NYPD, Naked City, Route 66 and All My Children.

Sylvia Miles, Oscar-nominated actress in Midnight Cowboy and Farewell My Lovely, dies at 94

This obituary is for the attention of IdRatherBeSkiing, eh? All you Americans can ignore it.

Davis Bartholomew played trumpet in Jimmie Lunceford's band before forming his own orchestra. They had a #14 r&b hit in February 1950 with Country Boy. In 1952, Bartholomew wrote and recorded My Ding-A-Ling, which would become a hit for Chuck Berry 20 years later.

Mister Jon apparently thinks if he is unfamiliar with someone who died, nobody else has ever heard of the person either. Mister scotch, apparently for the same reason, resents my posting of obituaries of people whom he does not regard as celebrities. Tell me, Mister Jon and Mister scotch, what are your criteria for a celebrity's death to be noted on the celebrity death thread? Are you two the sole arbiters of who qualifies as a "celebrity"? Should I check with you before I post any more obituaries? I shall await your response. Keep it clean.

DRC rules are simple. You can post all the dead people you want. They are NOT considered a celebrity unless somebody seconds them. The only grey area appears to be dead architects but even with that we usually recognize the second.
