Rick James

http://edition.cnn.com/2004/SHOWBIZ/...mes/index.html

R.I.P.

EDIT: It was pretty tasteless the way I titled this, but apparently I can't change it. Mod, will you please edit it? Thanks. And my apologies to anyone I offended. I wasn't thinking.

Indeed.

I was more than happy to edit it.

RIP, Rick James.

Just heard that news earlier this evening. That's really weird. Wasn't all that old, either.

Very sad . May he rest in peace.

Alright, I gotta say this:

I apologise to anyone whom I may have angered or offended with my previous title of the thread. I mean no honest disrespect to Mr. James, it was just an idiotic, non-thinking move on my part.

Please everyone, accept my apologies.
