Kenny Rogers RIP

Postby GoogaMooga » 21 Mar 2020, 15:52

Kenny Rogers has died, aged 81. Always considered "country light" and often found on petrol station budget comps, he did have a string of crossover hits, and sustained a 60 year career, before retiring in 2017. RIP Kenny Rogers

Some hippy dippy Kenny Rogers ... R.I.P.

If love could've saved you, you would've lived forever.

I confidently predict that someone will be along to make a joke about Kenny being cremated before the day is out

I love Ruby as well. Used to include it in the setlist of one of my old bands.

RIP, Kenny.
