Well, really, they bounced out of that '70's nostalgia call out for the '50's, so while the group may still be around the surviving audience they were playing to is dropping dead in droves.

According to Wikipedia they were the primary instigator of that revival. But you're still not getting it, their audience is not super geezers, it's people my age. I grew up in the 70s. I probably learned about a lot of that old music via Sha Na Na.

I have one particular FB friend who claims to be deeply saddened by seemingly every celebrity death.

Patty Duke. And right on cue...

"Why are so many famous people dying in 2016??!?"  Because they're getting old! And people who get old tend to die a lot!

Most of 'em only die once.

Goddammit, Prince wan't old by my lights but maybe he managed to cram some double-time in there.

Still, that one stings more, for some reasons.

Me too. Jesus, got something in my eyes.
