    The list does not end yet for 2016:

    China Machado, Breakthrough Model Until the End, Dies at 86

    China Machado, the first non-Caucasian to appear in the pages of an American glossy fashion magazine and a model who broke not only the race barrier but also the age barrier, died on Sunday in Brookhaven, N.Y., on Long Island. She was 86.

    And just in...

    Singer George Michael, 53, died today after his Last Christmas.

    It just doesn't end...

    I heard about Michael (SAD as hell), but Rick Parfitt??! Been a LONG time since i even heard anyone else mention Status quo, one of my fave 80s bands (well more 70s/80s)..

    This is certainly turning out to be a BAD year for my icons from the 70s and 80s..
