Well, this is sad news. Iconic Ann B. Davis, ‘Alice’ the housekeeper from ‘The Brady Bunch’ has died suddenly at the age of 88.

TMZ is reporting that an accidental fall is to blame.

According to the couple she lived with … Ann fell in her bathroom early this morning and hit her head causing grave damage.  We’re told she never regained consciousness.

Her roommate says Davis had been pretty healthy for an 88-year old woman — and her death was a total shock.  In fact, she even walked downstairs to say goodnight before going to bed.

Oh, Alice. Rest in Peace…

Listen To The Catchy ‘FALLINLOVE2NITE’ By Prince And Zooey Deschanel

Prince returned to acting, briefly, for a guest appearance on ‘New Girl‘ in February. The post Super Bowl episode featured The Purple One giving relationship and style advice to Jess at his party.

Later, Jess hops on stage with him and his band 3rdEyeGirl to perform “FALLINLOVE2NITE,” which she strangely knew all the words to. But Prince is magic, of course.

 

 

I loved hearing this song on the show and the studio version sounds just as good. No word yet on if it will be included on the upcoming album PLECTRUMELECTRUM which doesn’t have an official release date just yet. If this is a taste of what Prince & Co. are offering up with his first new album in five years, then we’re in for a funky treat.

Happy 70th Birthday, George Harrison

George Harrison, in the film “HELP”

 

Oh, George. My first crush. I was three years old when I fell in love with George Harrison, and he’s the one true celebrity crush that endured all these many years. I still can’t talk about his death of lung cancer in 2001 at the age of 58. Too tragic and too early. George was just so beautiful and his songs with the Beatles were always my favorites.  The sound of his guitar; his minor-key melodies, his voice, captured my heart in 1964.

A lovely example is “If I Needed Someone” from the Rubber Soul album.

 

It took me all day to get this post up. I’ve mentioned before that sometimes I just have a difficult time writing about certain people or topics…and I realize that makes NO sense whatsoever. None.  I can think about it, but I cannot get my brain to connect to my fingers. I wish I had a patch cord from my brain. That would be far more efficient.

 

Beautiful George

In the meantime, I give to you (again?) one of my favorite tributes to George, with quite possibly one of the best guitar solos ever–by Prince.

You are missed everyday, dear George. We have your and Olivia’s wonderful Dhani.

Thank you for leaving a glorious legacy in your son…he’s a blessing.
