Mel Tillis, the longtime country star who wrote hits for Kenny Rogers, Ricky Skaggs and many others, and overcame a stutter to sing on dozens of his own singles, has died.

A spokesman for Tillis, Don Murry Grubbs, said Tillis died early Sunday (Nov. 19) at Munroe Regional Medical Center in Ocala, Florida. He was 85.

Grubbs said Tillis battled intestinal issues since 2016 and never fully recovered. The suspected cause of death is respiratory failure.

Charles Manson — one of America’s most notorious killers — has died at the age of 83 after being rushed to hospital with serious health issues.

Manson was connected to the brutal slayings of pregnant actress Sharon Tate, the wife of filmmaker Roman Polanski, and other Hollywood residents, but was never found guilty of committing the murders himself. Manson was serving nine life sentences for conspiracy to commit the Manson Family murders in 1969 when he died.

Another one who, along with Ian Brady, should never rest in peace but burn in hell for what he did. Even though he didn't kill anyone himself, he coerced others into doing his dirty work. :evil:

David Cassidy. Age 67. :cry:
OMG. My 1st teenage heartthrob. Had his pictures plastered all over my room, and I still have Partridge Family records stored in the cupboard.
Bloody drugs and booze.

I'd heard David Cassidy's body was shutting down a couple of days ago. Sad.
And Rodney Bewes, I didn't realize he was that old. Another sad one.
