Kathy Griffin's mother Maggie has died at age 99.

"My Mom, the one and only, Maggie Griffin, passed away today," the comedian tweeted Tuesday night, along with a photo of her and her mom at the pool. "I am gutted. My best friend. I’m shaking. I won’t ever be prepared. I’m so grateful you guys got to be part of her life. You knew her. You loved her. She knew it."

Kenny Rogers is actually really interesting to listen to from a historic perspective. A lot of his earlier is a bit more rock n roll oriented, before he switched over to more of a country blend. I'm particularly partial to his song Love Will Turn You Around. RIP!

The African saxophone legend Manu Dibango has died in Paris after catching coronavirus.

Dibango - best known for his 1972 hit Soul Makossa - is one of the first global stars to die from Covid-19.

The 86-year-old fused jazz and funk music with traditional sounds from his home country, Cameroon.

Tragic. RIP!!!

Damn, I absolutely enjoyed a lot of his movies. RIP to a cult filmmaker.

https://variety.com/2020/film/obitua...es-1203544356/

Stuart Gordon, best known as the filmmaker behind such cult classics as “Re-Animator” and “From Beyond,” has died, his family confirmed to Variety Tuesday night. He was 72.

Although best known for his seminal work in independent horror, Gordon had a varied career that included founding the Organic Theater Company with his wife, Carolyn Purdy-Gordon. The Organic premiered such prominent works as David Mamet’s “Sexual Perversity in Chicago” and “Bleacher Bums,” which starred Dennis Franz and Joe Mantegna. He was a co-creator of the “Honey, I Shrunk the Kids” franchise, for which he shared a story credit, and produced the film’s sequel and directed an episode of the TV spin-off. In 2005, he directed a film adaptation of Mamet’s “Edmond,” starring William H. Macy. Other films include “Fortress,” “Castle Freak” and “King of the Ants.”

Sorry to hear it. I was hoping I'd meet him at a horror con some day and get my Re-animator DVD signed.

I have a few of his movies. Guess one is going on tonight.

John Callahan, a soap opera star on “All My Children,” died on Saturday morning after suffering a stroke at his Palm Springs, Calif., home on Friday. He was 66.

“Your bigger than life, gregarious personality will leave a hole in our hearts forever. We are devastated–my great friend, co-parent partner, and loving father to Kaya,” his ex-wife and former co-star Eva La Rue wrote on Instagram. “You gave the best, most beautifully written tributes, and I am at a complete loss for words right now for you. I hope Heaven has baseball and that your team always wins! The Yankees has just lost their biggest fan."

Krzysztof Penderecki, one of the world's leading composers, died Sunday at the age of 86. The Polish Ministry of Affairs announced his passing in a tweet. No cause of death was given.

The Polish-born composer established himself while still in his 20s with jarring atonal works such as Threnody to the Victims of Hiroshima, and came to be widely admired by music fans and musicians far outside traditional classical music circles.
