Saw Anita and her sisters in Las Vegas in the early 1990's. You could have powered an entire city with the energy those talented girls exuded in those performances.

They shouldn't be locked. Sometimes we don't hear of a celebrity's passing until days after...or maybe it just gets overlooked.

RIP racer Ken Block. Known for his Gymkhana videos, the dude had unreal car control skills. For some reason it didn’t translate to winning much on the racetrack but the dude was super talented and built an entire brand off of his skills. Snowmobile accident took him out.

RIP Legendary guitarist Jeff Beck, 78, from meningitis.

Name an artist/band/group and chances are he’s played with them at some point or another. You can do the 6 degrees of separation with his name for anyone, much like Kevin Bacon.

I saw it on Facebook from a WNDU facebook page. WNDU is reporting it first. Tomorrow, "First, Fast, and Accurate" WSBT will report it as breaking news.
