Edmundo Ros, who took Latin sound to London, dies
RAPHAEL G. SATTER | October 22, 2011 12:16 PM EST | AP

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
LONDON He introduced wartime Britain to the percussive rhythm of the rumba, so capturing the nation's imagination that its young princess chose his songs for her public dancing debut.

Bandleader Edmundo Ros, 100, died peacefully in his sleep, his family said Saturday.

Another favorite of mine. May he RIP.

Andy Rooney, the "60 Minutes" commentator known to generations for his wry, humorous and contentious television essays - a unique genre he is credited with inventing - died Friday night in a hospital in New York City of complications following minor surgery. He was 92, and had homes in New York City, Rensselaerville, N.Y. and Rowayton, Conn.

I'm not sure if I ever have watched an episode of 60 minutes. But man... what a legend and an icon.

92 years. What a life.

60 Minutes has been on TV for 30 years and you've never watched it?? You really need to exit your Fox Cocoon and join the real world.

My lists of shows: Perry Mason, The Mentalist, Psych.... and a few others. No news.

Slight correction.... 42 years.

But no, not sure that I can recall watching an episode. I'm sure I have somewhere down the line.

I did not have the take he was ailing at all. They say he died of complications from minor surgery. I've known those much younger that did the same. That's why when I have surgery, major or minor, all bills are paid and all important papers (will, living will, etc.) are up to date and readily available to those who may need them. Hospitals scare the crap out of me.

He looked like a 92 year old, which may seem frail, but he had spirit and still a glint in his eyes.
