That’s very sad. Feel like he was probably a very important figure given the era he came to prominence in.

I have a Supermarket Sweep jumper. Might have to wear it tomorrow.

Awww. Really liked Dale. He was suffering from depression for years, poor guy.

62 is no age to go when you’re that fabulous :cry:
