    More to come....

    Yep... we're seeing it now.

    It is the mark of an educated mind to be able to entertain a thought without accepting it.

    Do not let success go to your head and do not let failure get to your heart.

    Honestly didn’t realize he was still voicing him up until recently. Can you imagine the life long royalties on voice acting!

    But most genuine living legends (who don't die young) spend quite a few of their last years in relative obscurity, out of the media and the memory of them does dim in the public eye.

    I thought it would be nice to try and think of some GENUINE living legends, maybe who aren't on the news and in the gossip columns so much anymore, but who are still alive.

    They do need to be proper crossover stars, and we can debate that ad nauseam .... but can you imagine the press coverage and sadness when those people do pass on:

    (in no particular order)

    Tina Turner, Pele, Mick Jagger, Dolly Parton, Bob Dylan, Paul McCartney, David Attenborough, Clint Eastwood, Billie Jean King, Jerry Lee Lewis, Ozzy Osbourne, Christopher Walken, Robert de Niro, even Queen Elizabeth II I suppose.

    Who else should we perhaps appreciate a bit more now, rather than after they are dead?
    Well The Queen is brown bread now.
