One of the greatest drummers who ever played, Hal Blaine, has died at the age of 90:

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/entertainment-arts-47537451
Over the course of his career, he played on countless hits by Frank Sinatra, Elvis Presley, the Beach Boys and John Lennon, amongst others.
But his most recognisable riff was the "boom-ba-boom-crack" bar that opened The Ronnettes' Be My Baby.

RIP  Sad

Surf Instrumental legend Dick Dale has died at the age of 81 (or possibly 82). His apex moment was Misirlou, which featured in films in the 1960s, and again in 1994 thanks for Quentin Tarantino, when Pulp Fiction relit the fire under Dale's career, as under so many others. RIP  Sad

Cabaret entertainer Joe Longthorne did over the weekend. He had suffered with throat cancer. One highlight of his act were pretty decent musical impressions of acts like Shirley Bassey. He was a much-loved light entertainment figure. RIP  Sad

Ric Ocasek, lead singer for new-wave icons The Cars, found dead at 75 Sad

Ric Ocasek, frontman and lead singer for new-wave icons The Cars, has been found dead in New York.

New York Police Det. Martin Brown confirmed to USA TODAY that police were called to Ocasek's residence around 4 p.m. EDT Sunday. "Upon arrival, police found a 75-year-old male unresponsive in bed," Brown said. "He was pronounced dead at the scene."

Brown said a family member found Ocasek's body. "It doesn't appear criminal at this time."

The band, famed for hits like “Drive” and “Just What I Needed,” broke through in 1978, and Ocasek, Elliot Easton, Greg Hawkes, David Robinson and Benjamin Orr were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2018.
