Something not related to COVID-19, though I belatedly stumbled on this week old news (21 March) by clicking on a link in the coronavirus thread.

Legendary country singer Kenny Rogers dies at 81

(CNN) Kenny Rogers, whose legendary music career spanned six decades, has died at the age of 81, his publicist Keith Hagan told CNN.

The artist's family announced his passing on Rogers' verified Twitter account, saying he died Friday night from natural causes under the care of hospice and surrounded by family.
. . .

Rogers' family plans a small, private service out of concern for the coronavirus pandemic, "but look forward to celebrating the life of Kenny Rogers publicly with his friends and fans at a later date," his publicist's statement said.

Kenny Rogers has not been prominent in any discussion that I have had for many years, notwithstanding that it is a shame that he has died.  As a teen and then a young adult, Kenny Rogers and the First Edition were regular top ten contributors. As Kenny went solo, his reach and appeal went in a number of different ways. Some liked it, most didn't.
