A thread for posts about recent celebrity deaths.

The big name stars like Stan Lee and ex-presidents get their own death threads but a lot of stars from the past and local celebrities don't get much attention on NeoGAF, so here's a thread for them.

Unfortunately someone has to kick this thread off, and that honour goes to a punk from the 70s.

Rest In Peace Pete Shelley

I don't wanna classify you
Like an animal in the zoo
But it seems good to me to know
That you're a Homosapien too

All life actually ended when Prince died. We are living in hell right now and don’t even know it.

It kills me that a man who fought SO hard for the right to own his own image and his body of work finally achieved it, only to die young and have no one to leave it to. The record companies won in the end.

Goodbye Super Dave... I was not expecting that one. I also had no idea he was 76. I would have guessed closer to 60. May Larry David not mess up your relationships in the afterlife.

Oh, I have left out the late, great Malcolm Young, because he's a guitarist and not a singer. But a lot of band members are gone too.

How many of these musicians have you heard of?

You guys realize that people thst were popular in the 60’s and and 70’s are getting really old now right? Everybody that talks about this stuff seems to forget that.

That generation is where the true celebrity was born...

Yeah, but it's still sad when they pass away. These guys knew their way around a good tune and writing lyrics for fabulous songs that people fondly enjoy years after they are out. Unlike much of today's plastic, and pretty much ten-a-penny pop music.

Instagram star Boo the Pomeranian has died after losing friend Buddy last year. Picture: FacebookSource:Supplied
“With deepest sadness I wanted to share that Boo passed away in his sleep early this morning and has left us to join his best friend, Buddy,” his owner posted on Facebook.
“Boo showed signs of heart issues. We think his heart literally broke when Buddy left us. He hung on and gave us over a year.

This actually makes me sad.

its always great to make fun of the people who pay tribute to a celebrity they barely know anything about but will make an instagram post about them complete with a pic of their most popular movie or them smiling in the park or something. chances are that celebrity wasnt a great person but hey i liked em in a movie once

The exact same thing is happening to my dog. He is 16 years old and his 17 years old companion died last year. Nothing makes him happy anymore and I fear the end is coming soon for him. They lived their whole lives together and when my eldest dog was gone, he literally didn't eat anything for a week. :(
