    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.

    I'm out of the loop. What was he going to be doing?

    He had just announced his retirement from 60 Minutes, recently.

    :(

    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.

    :p:D

    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.

    R.I.P. Andy, you have left behind a legend.

    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 frail to me.

    Same here. And I have some stories to back my feelings up!

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