    Now maybe they'll let Chuck Negron back in; they've been very unforgiving.

    2 is the loneliest number that they'll ever know.

    RIP, I've had a few close relatives die of cancer,, it's the most insidious disease and undignified of life's endgames.

    They had some big hits in the early 70's, especially "Joy To The World". They ought to be in the Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame.

    Trivia: Do you know who wrote "Joy To The World"? Hoyt Axton, who played the dad in the first Gremlins movie
