    I can't believe he wasn't older ...seems like he was old in the 80s.
    So many good tunes....and, Six Pack!

    The love he receives is the love that is saved

    And somewhere in the darkness
    The gambler he broke even
    But in his final words

    RIP Kenny. You made the world a better place with your music and your chicken. Condolences to his survivors.

    Dear old Dad always sung along with his songs to us. Good part of my past. Thanks Kenny.
    I think there is an episode of the muppet show with him on it.

    "Oh they say the world's your oyster, but man, oysters ain't for me.
    Your the bell of the ball, but, you ain't my cup of tea.
    They always vote you best in show, but this doggie disagrees...
    Cuz I like life in Paddy's Pub!"

    A few months ago, my mom called me, desperate to know who sang that dreamy song, "Lady".

    I told her she has the damn thing on cassette :lol:
