I remember when he was on Celebrity Fit Club. I thought it was strange for a man to have a name like "Jani".
I remember Francesco Quinn most from NCIS. I never really made the connection with the last name and didn't realize he came from such a famous bloodline. He was only 6 weeks older than me - much too young to die.
I came close to tears when I heard about Jani Lane today. He was one of my faves growing up.
Rest in peace, Jani. You will be missed. :crying
Nick Ashford of Ashford & Simpson fame
Motown songwriter Nick Ashford dies
RIP, you will be sorely missed.
It's been a bad couple of days for songwriters. Jerry Lieber, lyricist for such songs as "Hound Dog," "Jailhouse Rock," "Stand By Me," and "On Broadway," has passed away as well.
I always adored the music of Ashford and Simpson.
Seems like only yesterday I was listening to Solid as a Rock.
To name just a few:
"Ain't No Mountain High Enough"
"Reach Out And Touch Somebody's Hand"
"You're All I Need To Get By"
"I'm Every Woman"
"Solid As A Rock"
I could go on and on!
RIP, Mr. Lieber.
Your music will live on forever.
