Here's one that's more notorious than famous.

Larry Flint, founder and publisher of Hustler magazine, is dead.

He was the defendant in an important 1st Amendment case dramatized in the film "The People vs. Larry Flint".

Chick Corea, Jazz Fusion Pioneer, Has Died Of Cancer At 79

Quote
Armando Anthony "Chick" Corea (June 12, 1941 – February 9, 2021) was an American jazz composer, keyboardist, bandleader and occasional percussionist.[3] His compositions "Spain", "500 Miles High", "La Fiesta", "Armando's Rhumba" and "Windows" are widely considered jazz standards.[4] As a member of Miles Davis's band in the late 1960s, he participated in the birth of jazz fusion. In the 1970s he formed Return to Forever.[3] Along with Herbie Hancock, McCoy Tyner, Keith Jarrett and Bill Evans, he is considered one of the major piano players to emerge in jazz during the post-John Coltrane era.[5]

Corea continued to pursue multiple collaborations and to explore different musical styles throughout the 1980s and 1990s. He was also known for promoting and fundraising for a number of social issues.[6]

Corea won 23 Grammy Awards and was nominated over 60 times.

Here's one that you may love or you may hate.

Rush Limbaugh, the conservative ratio talk host, has succumbed to lung cancer.

I don't consider him the best (or the worst), but when his show started to get picked up by talk radio stations across the country in the early 1990's, conservative voices in the American mass media were rare, and he was something new.

British jazz legend Chris Barber has died aged 90.

In the late 50's and early 1960's Barber was mainly responsible for bringing to the UK all the black American blues legends to play at places like the iconic Marquee Club in London's Soho where they could play to non-segregated audiences and organised UK tours for them as well.

This included people like Big Bill Broonzy, Sonny Terry, Brownie McGhee and Muddy Waters.

Those musicians influenced a whole generation of new British bands (including The Rolling Stones) and the British skiffle and rhythm 'n' blues scenes and the whole Beat Boom happened as a direct result.

That of course lead to the so-called 'British Invasion' of America and those American blues legends finally started to get the recognition they deserved in their own country.

And this was all apart from his own impressive number of recordings between 1954 and 2011.
