Roy Horn of Siegfried & Roy, the duo whose extraordinary magic tricks astonished millions until Horn was critically injured in 2003 by one of the act’s famed white tigers, has died. He was 75.
Horn died of complications from the coronavirus on Friday in a Las Vegas hospital, according to a statement released by publicist Dave Kirvin.
“Today, the world has lost one of the greats of magic, but I have lost my best friend,” Siegfried Fischbacher said in the statement. “From the moment we met, I knew Roy and I, together, would change the world. There could be no Siegfried without Roy, and no Roy without Siegfried.” ...
I thought he died a few years ago, we will never be free of the Mandela effect. I assumed he would be older than that too.
Are you two thinking of James Brown? He died in December 2006. Or Chuck Berry, 2017?Ditto on both counts.
Nope, I thought Little Richard had died 5ish years ago and at the time I had been surprised that he had lived until that point. As opposed to my being surprised by that now.Are you two thinking of James Brown? He died in December 2006. Or Chuck Berry, 2017?
The man was insane. Insanely talented, insanely gifted, insanely entertaining and the inspiration for many other musical stars too many to mention who followed in his footsteps. Another legendary giant gone.
He also inspired the look and moves The Cat in Red Dwarf.The man was insane. Insanely talented, insanely gifted, insanely entertaining and the inspiration for many other musical stars too many to mention who followed in his footsteps. Another legendary giant gone.
I was going to say a few words on Little Richard, but can't put it better than that. An outrageous man. Apparently his autobiography is not for the easily shocked - or even the not so easily shocked.The man was insane. Insanely talented, insanely gifted, insanely entertaining and the inspiration for many other musical stars too many to mention who followed in his footsteps. Another legendary giant gone.
He had brilliant timing. Easily the best thing in The King of Queens, I know it's not the greatest sitcom but he made it very watchable.Jerry Stiller, actor, dead at 92, from natural causes.
Great singer. She had a fantastic song called Girls Can't Do What The Guys Do. I suspect that she inspired the name of the Tin Machine song Betty Wrong too.Bad week for musicians, now singer Betty Wright has died, the Clean Up Woman herself and owner of most impressive afro in R&B. Only 66. RIP, great voice.
