Keyboardist Mike Pinder, 82. He was the last surviving founding member of the Moody Blues.

 

He played many instruments...Including the harp, and in particular he played the mellotron. His use of the mellotron inspired Rick Wakeman of Yes, Tony Banks of Genesis, Ian MacDonald of King Crimson and on down the line. Actually, as I understand it he taught John Lennon how to play the instrument, and ultimately Lennon came up with Strawberry Fields Forever. 

 

RIP. 

You inspired so many.

My favorite group. Saw them many times over the years. Pinder was also responsible for bringing in Justin Hayward after Denny Laine left the band in 1966. That was a pretty good get.

RIP, Bob Avellini, former Terp and Chicago Bears QB.  He was drafted in the 6th round - their 1st round pick was some guy named Walter Payton.  Avellini was the starting QB in the first Maryland game I ever watched.  Randy White was the first overall pick in that same draft.

Former President and tremendous human being.

Everything I see says he's "coming to the end" but don't see that he passed.

I read it wrong.

My mistake.

He's a great human being who is still on earth.

I only checked because I get a day off at work when a president passes and I told a co-worker he died and they said “where are you seeing this??” 😂

I had no idea that was a policy.

Sorry you didn't get the day off, but it seems imminent.
