Superfan and the beat of the Cleveland Indians / Guardians - drummer John Adams - passed away at the age of 71.

A percussionist / drummer myself, I got to meet him following a Royals game in Cleveland back in 2017. Really nice guy. Even got a picture with him.  :-(

Cindy Williams has died

With Cindy Williams' passing, it appears that Michael McKean he played Lenny is the last surviving principal cast member of "Laverne & Shirley." (Phil Foster died in 1985, Betty Garrett in 2011, Penny Marshall in 2018, David L. Lander in 2020 and Eddie Mekka in 2021.)

A classic sitcom.

Thanks for the memories, Cindy!

Brian
