Does that ever catch up with you? When you look up and realize that you are hours away from the passing of a favorite entertainer?

Me, just looked up and saw it's almost a decade since Laura Branigan.

When I was in 7th grade in 1970, our first "Junior High" dance was to be "A Tribute to Jimi Hendrix". I didn't know who he was, but I remember parents raised a hue and cry over a dance dedicated to someone who died of a drug overdose so they changed it.
