don't know how the foo fighters drummer died but i'm still surpised so many rock artists from the 80s when i was a teenager are still alive with all the amounts of drugs and alcohol that many of them did like ozzie
Hawkins OD'd once before, Grohl sat by his bedside while he was in a coma. I thought he got cleaned up, but there's some reports that a number of substances were found in his system. No idea how valid that is since autopsies usually take awhile.
I knew that the drummer from Queen, Roger Taylor, was Hawkins' first inspiration to start playing drums. What I didn't know was in '99 Hawkins considered leaving Foo Fighters to join Axl Rose in a revamped Guns N Roses lineup. He called up Roger Taylor and Roger talked him out of it. He told him it's not the same without having your old band mates around.
Colombia’s Attorney General’s Office released a preliminary “forensic medical study” Saturday following the death of Foo Fighters’ drummer Taylor Hawkins.
The report said a urine toxicology test was carried out on Hawkins and 10 substances were found, including THC, tricyclic antidepressants, benzodiazepines and opioids.
CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — Lee Rose, who led Purdue and Charlotte to the men’s Final Four, has died. He was 85.
UNC Charlotte said Rose died Tuesday in Charlotte. The school did not provide a cause of death.
Rose led the 49ers to the 1976 NIT championship game and to the school’s only Final Four in 1977. He went 72-18 in three years at Charlotte before taking over at Purdue. He spent just two seasons with the Boilermakers, going 50-18 and going to the Final Four in 1979.
After that, he spent the next six years at South Florida amassing a 106-69 record, although the Bulls never made the NCAA Tournament.
Imagine those guys telling jokes in a better placeHoly crap...Gilbert Gottfriend has passed away at 67 from a long time illness. Unreal, we've lost three great comics in the span of a year. They were all really close too. Bob and Norm were like brothers. Gilbert often worked with Norm in standup and on his podcast.
Official cause of death: Recurrent Ventricular Tachycardia due to Myotonic Dystrophy type II.
Oh man. RIP. Great college & pro QB who had bad timing. Played for ND pre-Ara so they never competed for NC. Then he became one of the earliest QB in pro ball to really air it out while other QB were just attempting high percentage passes which showed them w/ better numbers & less interceptions. He’ll probably always be considered as a member of the Hall of Very Good but his numbers are comparable or better than lots of HOF QBs, including Joe Namath.The Irish great, Daryle Lamonica passed today at 80 years old
RIP Mad Bomber
