Show Me A Picture Of Rudolph Isley - I watch you

Ronald Isley is the founding member of the band

(AP) – Rudolph Isley, a founding member of the Isley Brothers
who helped perform such raw rhythm and blues classics as
“Shout" and “Twist and Shout” and the funky hits “That Lady”
and “It’s Your Thing,” has died at age 84.

There are no words to express my feelings and the love I have
for my brother. Our family will miss him. But I know he’s in a
better place," Ronald Isley said in a statement released
Thursday by an Isley Brothers publicist. Further details
were not immediately available.

A Cincinnati native, Rudolph Isley began singing in church with
brothers Ronald and O’Kelly (another sibling, Vernon, died at
age 13) and was still in his teens when they broke through in
the late 1950s with “Shout,” a secularized gospel rave that was
later immortalized during the toga party scene in “Animal House.”

The Isleys scored again in the early 1960s with the equally spirited
“Twist and Shout,” which the Beatles liked so much they used it
as the closing song on their debut album and opened with it for
their famed 1965 concert at Shea Stadium.

John Denver (Henry John Deutschendorf Jr.)
(December 31, 1943 – October 12, 1997)

To those who bought records like “Rocky Mountain High”
and “Take Me Home, Country Roads” by the millions in
the 1970s, John Denver was much more than just a great
songwriter and performer.

With his oversized glasses, bowl haircut and down vest,
he was an unlikely fashion icon, and with his vocal
environmentalism, he was the living embodiment of an
outdoorsy lifestyle that many 20-something baby boomers
would adopt as their own during the “Me” decade.

There never was and there probably never will be a star
quite like John Denver, who died on October 12, 1997
when his experimental amateur aircraft (below) crashed
into Monterey Bay on the California coast.

Singer, Songwriter, and Actor John Denver Dies in Plane Crash

Quote from the NTSB Report: "The National Transportation Safety
Board determined the probable cause of the accident was the
pilot’s diversion of attention from the operation of the airplane
and his inadvertent application of right rudder that resulted in
the loss of airplane control while attempting to manipulate the
fuel selector handle.

The Columbus Day Storm of 1962 (also known as the Big Blow)
was a
Pacific Northwest windstorm that originated from typhoon
Freda and struck the West Coast of
Canada and the Pacific
coast of the United States on October 12, 1962.

The system brought strong winds to the Pacific Northwest and southwest Canada. It was linked to 46 fatalities in the northwest
Northern California
resulting from heavy rains and mudslides. 

Estimates put the dollar damage at approximately $230 million to
$280 million for California, Oregon, and Washington combined.

The Metropolitan Life Insurance Co. (now MetLife) named the
