RIP Donna Summer

Postby The Mad Collector » Thu May 17, 2012 6:52 pm

Sadly died at the age of just 63, one of the most distinctive sounds of my youth. :(

One of those? Oh I'm sure I have one somewhere..

RIP Donna :(
Getting an education was a bit like a communicable sexual disease. It made you unsuitable for a lot of jobs and then you had the urge to pass it on.

Some people are questioning whether she got lung cancer from inhaling the crap in the air in NY on 9/11, as she was living there at the time.

RIP Donna.

its very sad but about 15% of that dust we saw after the attack was asbestos so they reckon in the next ten years or so there will be an epidemic of asbestosis and mesothelioma( asbestos cancer) in the new york area :( :(
