But that Kenny Rodgers/Rogers is/was a woodwind player, not a singer or bassist.

Singer and bassist Kenny Rogers has past last night at 82.  I can’t seem to find any articles confirming this, but it was mentioned during a gig at Lincoln Center last night and a moment of silence for him, McCoy Tyner and Jimmy Heath was observed.

Ok, were you at this gig, physically or virtually? Or was this information provided to you from somebody else.

Maybe it was a different Kenny Rogers? :g

That guy was a fine, sometimes great, pitcher, but, by damn near all accounts, a total head case.

Talk about somebody who needed to just drop in to see what condition his condition was in, there one is, or was, as the case may or may not turn out to be.

Here's Discogs on Sax Kenny Rogers, and good luck googling him to find out if he's still alive:

What about Roy. I know Trigger passed and was stuffed, but I don't know about Roy or Dale. I am hoping for the best. DUH!

So now Kenny Rogers the country singer passed away at 81. The guy who did The Gambler. Just happened today.

Who was this thread about? I am pretty sure the sax player who recorded with Lee Morgan died a while ago.

Who was the person memorialized at Lincoln Center two weeks ago?

Also mentioned on the radio news over here. I’d forgotten all of those big hits he’d had back in the day, duets with Dolly Parton etc.

RIP to the only Kenny Rogers I’m aware of (other than the pitcher).

I started this thread about the county singer. I guess Lincoln Center has a vision into the future when it was announced.

RIP, thanks for the music, and um, damn you to hell for putting that earworm in my head.

 

Just kidding.
