I couldn’t agree more.  Some entertainers are truly one of a kind, and he fit that bill.

Didn't realise he'd done so many. Long Tall Sally is great of course, I mean I love The Beatles' version.

Lennon did some covers too.

Only Jerry Lee Lewis left of the originals, surely?

Can anyone recommend a great rock n roll compilation vinyl album with Lee Lewis, Presley, Berry, Little Richard and Buddy Holly? It does seem they've been overlooked of late in the digital era. But their songs were great - I mean Chuck Berry had great lyrics and everything.

Astrid Kerchherr - the woman who helped create The Beatles.

Her chum went on to design the cover to Revolver, played bass on the Plastic Ono Band AND produced no 1 hit Da Da Da by Trio.

She created the Beatles haircut and that slightly chic European feel that gave the Beatles the edge when they returned from Hamburg. Took great photos too.

Denny O’Neill has passed away. He was a famed writer for DC comics, penning substantial runs on the Batman and Green Lantern series. He also wrote the popular Superman vs. Muhammad Ali one-shot issue.

Yeah, well, sometimes nothin' can be a real cool hand.

Re: Tributes Thread

RIP to Denny O'Neill, as I comic book reader I have read quite a few of his Batman stories growing and I really enjoyed them. He also worked for Marvel for time writing Spider-Man(another superhero whose adventures I enjoy reading) and other titles before returning to DC. Defiantly going to check out the Superman vs Muhammad Ali one shot in the near future.

Re: Tributes Thread

Denny O'Neill, collaborating with artist Neal Adams, made Batman a darker more realistic comic in the early 1970s. Getting rid of all the silly stuff associated with the teevee show, and paving the way for Frank Miller's more disturbing interpretation in the 1980s.
Batman is now DC's most popular character by far, and it is their "Dark Knight Detective" version that we know today.

O'Neill and Adams also created the famous Green Lantern/Green Arrow "relevant" series, one of DC's most important runs.

wikipedia tells me it was also O'Neill who wrote the stories where Wonder Woman briefly lost her powers and superhero costume and became an Emma Peel type character. Didn't realise that.

Amazing to think that when this lady was born, World War I was raging - 1917.
Bit of a choker hearing this news yesterday morning.
V glad she made it to 103 - and for the VE anniversary this year.

I read her obit in today's New York Times, and I confess to having never heard of her.  That is, until I learned that her "We'll Meet Again" plays over nuclear destruction at the end of Dr. Strangelove.  Of course I've heard of her!  She was obviously much more important than that, though.  RIP.  ajb007/cheers

Do you know the Pink Floyd album The Wall? The song "Vera" is about her.
