Now half the group is dead.
I was never a huge fan of The Mamas and The Papas, but their songs are unavoidable, 'California Dreaming' in particular.
A bunch of pop stars of the 60's and 70's died young, mostly of drugs, a few of auto and motorcycle accidents. Now the rest are beginning to die of natural causes such as heart disease. This is just the leading edge.
There is a certain morbid fascination in watching the stars fall. "Ah, now I've outlived Jerry Garcia. Um, I've passed John Phillips..."
Time for bed. Goodnight.
