Denny Laine, band member of Moody Blues and Wings, dies at 79
With the Moody Blues, he sang lead on the group's breakthrough hit, "Go Now"

Denny Laine, a British singer, songwriter and guitarist who performed in an early, pop-oriented version of the Moody Blues and was later Paul McCartney's longtime sideman in the ex-Beatle's solo band Wings, died Dec. 5 in Naples, Fla. He was 79.

The cause was interstitial lung disease, according to an announcement on Laine's Instagram page by his wife, Elizabeth Hines.

Mr. Laine's death comes almost exactly 50 years after the release of McCartney's acclaimed "Band On the Run" album, on which Mr. Laine played guitar and provided backing vocals.

Mr. Laine was born Brian Frederick Arthur Hines on Oct. 29, 1944, in the Channel Islands and grew up in Tyseley, England. He changed his professional name in his early teens, in part in homage to pop singer Frankie Laine.

In 1964, around the time he turned 20, he joined Ray Thomas and Mike Pinder in forming the Moody Blues and sang lead on the group's breakthrough hit, "Go Now."

Norman Lear, who brought social commentary to the sitcom, dies at 101
Archie Bunker, Maude Findlay and George Jefferson were among the characters he brought to America's living rooms


Norman Lear, the TV writer and producer who transformed the bland porridge of situation comedy into a zesty stew of sociopolitical strife and brutally funny speech and who gave the world such embattled comic archetypes as Archie Bunker, Fred Sanford, Maude Findlay and George Jefferson, died Dec. 5 at his home in Los Angeles. He was 101.

A family spokeswoman, Lara Bergthold, announced the death but did not provide an immediate cause.

Mr. Lear's entertainment career spanned the late 1940s to the 21st century, and he also found prominence in later life as a liberal political activist. But his legend was sealed in the 1970s, when he created a handful of shows that transformed the television medium into a fractious national town meeting and showcased the American family in all its hopes and dysfunctions.

This show was brilliant, the writing and the acting. Our family would always watch it together and i thought my dad was pretty much just like Archie...

Randy Sparks, who gave folk music a big choral sound, dies at 90
The New Christy Minstrels founded by Mr. Sparks became a steppingstone for a host of future stars including Kenny Rogers




Randy Sparks, a folk music maestro who crafted choral odes, ballads and ditties of droll wit such as "Saturday Night in Toledo, Ohio" during the 1960s folk revival and who nurtured a host of future stars including Kenny Rogers and John Denver, died Feb. 11 in San Diego. He was 90.

Mr. Sparks had health problems including heart trouble, said his son, Cameron Sparks. Mr. Sparks, who lived in Mokelumne Hill, Calif., was under medical care at his son's home.

Amid the range of folk and roots music that flourished before the rock revolution — from the activist strains of Pete Seeger to the pop-style sound of the Kingston Trio — Mr. Sparks flexed his versatility. He defied easy labeling as a songwriter and leader of troupes including the New Christy Minstrels and the Back Porch Majority.
