It was Privately, so I guess it's "unexpectedly" to the public, who weren't aware, I think.

Singer/songwriter Delaney Bramlett, died 12/27/08 at the age of 69. He sang with his then-wife Bonnie Lynn, and were known as Bonnie & Delaney.

Never Ending Song of Love was probably their most well known hit.


For those who watched Roseanne, Bonnie Bramlett (Lynn) appeared as a character named Bonnie on the series, where they worked together as waitresses for 1 season.

Veteran actor James Whitmore died on 2/6/09.



Twilight Zone fans may remember him from the episode "On Thursday We Leave for Home," where he played the leader of a group of space travelers who he tries to convince to stay on the planet they are on and not leave for home, since he was in control here.
