Tony Bennett has passed, R.I.P.😔

I'm glad I got to see him once in Greenwich Village in the 90s just before he had a big resurgence. A friend took me as a surprise. Wowee so sad even though he lived a great long life. I also saw him walking down the street with his friend. Didn't say anything to him cause didn't want to bother him. I was lucky to find alot of his vinyls in the last couple of years at Thrift stores. He left a big great legacy in pop and Jazz. Rest TB🙏😢

You should change the title to "RIP: Tony Bennett" so there are no dupes later on.

________________________


Tony Bennett, the master pop vocalist who had a professional career spanning eight decades with a No. 1 album at age 85, died on Friday morning in New York City. He was 96.

Bennett was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease in 2016, but had continued to perform and record through 2021.


Though his gleaming, soaring tenor darkened into a burnished, grainy baritone in the later years of his career, Bennett never lost his interpretive skills. Nowhere was his continuing agility demonstrated more ably than on his two “Duets” collections, which challengingly paired him with a panoply of much younger stars. The second collection hit the top of the charts with a 179,000-copy debut week in September 2011, making Bennett the oldest performer in history to release a No. 1 album.

He is survived by his wife Susan Benedetto, his two sons, Danny and Dae Bennett, his daughters Johanna Bennett and Antonia Bennett, and nine grandchildren.

More at Variety.

Actually, I find "RIP" to be creepy (as in Hallowe'en) and disrespectful. What ever happened to common decency?

LOL Saying rest in peace or RIP is creepy??? I suppose "rest in pieces" is what's lacking common decency.
