Introducing Discussionist: A new forum by the creators of DU

What dead artist do you miss the most? I think it is Mordecai Richler for me. Read his

biography this year. I used to look so forward to him publishing a new book every 6 years.

2. John Lennon

I didn't get into his solo stuff until long after he was killed, but nowadays I think it was his contribution that really set the Beatles apart.

6. Yup. The current class struggle is about monsters of industry vs the uninformed or powerless.

I hate that painting.

23. He's the first one that came to my mind, also.

We lost him just when his career was getting started. Who knows what his music would have become as he grew. I used to have an 8-track that he recorded with Ingrid before he was "discovered". It was very sweet and poignant.

Wow! Talk about a coincidence. I'm listening to Pandora and just now "You Don't Mess Around With Jim" started playing.

12. James Michener

I've read about 90% of his books, some of which...like "Hawaii", "Centennial", and "Chesapeake" are long and satisfying to the point that I have had to buy new copies of them every few years because I wear them out from reading them over and over.

It makes me sad to think that there won't be any more from him.

16. Have you read

Sarum: The Novel of England by Edward Rutherford? It's in the style of Michener's Hawaii.

While I respect his choice, I think he would have stuck around a little longer if he had any idea what was coming.

25. Jeffry Hyman AKA Joey Ramone and John Ritter and Roger Miller.

I guess I just thought John Ritter would always be around, kinda like Betty White.
