Dead, Deader, Deadest

Brad Delp, the erstwhile singer for the massive selling basement band Boston was found dead in his home. It looks like natural causes.

Comedian Richard Jeni is dead and the Hollywood Reporter cautiously says it looks like "a possible suicide." Since they also say his girlfriend called the police and told them, "My boyfriend shot himself in the face," I'm gonna go out on a limb and say it's a probable suicide.

And Jeff Buckley has been dead for a while, but the albums keep on coming. Buckley had one studio album. ONE. Plus a live EP and posthumous odds and ends and they've somehow managed to turn all that into a greatest hits CD. Yes, a greatest hits CD for an artist who released ONE album. I just chatted with the former lead singer of Savage Garden who thought it was daft his band had a greatest hits CD when they only released two albums. Ha! That's nothing, obviously. I plan to release a greatest hits CD even though I've never released any music at all.
