Lionel Ritchie? Put me out of my misery!

Hi - senior moment coming up: I though Lionel Ritchie died recently but he obviously hasn't!

This being the case, who am I getting him mixed up with?? Perhaps in the last six months, maybe around the same time as Eartha Kitt, male, black, probably American... Has to be someone very popular as I'm a musical incompetent. Obviously not so popular that I can remember him though!

I got tickets to see him on 16 March so I hope you are wrong!!!

Luthor Vandross died a couple of years back.

If it wasn't him, perhaps he may be on this list

You're probably thinking of Richard Pryor, exdragon, he sadly died at the end of 2005.

It wasn't James Brown that you were reading about. Apparently there are still some squabbles about official burial and other family affairs that have been in the news fairly recently.

"I got tickets to see him on 16 March so I hope you are wrong!!!"

Maybe it's a posthumous concert from beyond the grave;)

Not the prettiest site click here but informative - if a little morbid

Umm, bit wrong with the 'recently', though - it was Luther Vandross!

Many thanks, all of you.

I often get Lionel Richie, Luther Vandross & Alexander o'Neal mixed up...
