    From CNN:

    "Americana singer and songwriter David Olney, whose music was recorded by Linda Ronstadt, Steve Young, Emmylou Harris and others, died of an apparent heart attack while performing on stage in Florida Saturday, according to a statement on his website. He was 71.

    Olney stopped in the middle of a song and paused, said "I'm sorry," and "put his chin to his chest," said fellow singer-songwriter Scott Miller, who was performing with Olney at the 30A Songwriters Festival in Santa Rosa Beach.
    "He never dropped his guitar or fell (off) his stool," Miller wrote on Facebook. "It was as easy and gentle as he was."..."

    Kind of a nice way to go. We're all going to go at some point and that's probably one of the best ways to go... peacefully doing what you love.

    Didn't sound like it was too bad at all. Didn't even fall or anything.

    Better to die on stage in front of people who love you than on the toilet.

    At least he died doing what he loved.

    Sure, because I'm sure that would be the first thing they mention on Fox news:

    "Singer Evacuates Bowels on Stage"

    Hey ever since I got my bidet I enjoy evacuating my bowels too.


    Don't want to die in the middle though.

    I'm guessing singers shit and piss before they go on stage. Would be akward to take a break to do so.
