    All this discussion reminds me on Aug. 16, 1977 Walter Cronkite went with the death of Elvis Presley as his third story, 10 minutes into the telecast, after the first commercial

    Liza Minnelli, too. But like Midler and Cher, it will be as an entertainer and not solely a singer.

    I would think Daltrey or Townshend might also be A1. And maybe Waters or Gilmour. Or Ozzy Osbourne. They’re all well-known enough.

    I would think Eric Clapton, for sure, and probably Jimmy Page, Brian Wilson and Brian May. Also wouldn’t be surprised if Loretta Lynn was front page news, who didn’t love “Coal Miners Daughter”?

    If you go country, then Willie, Dolly and Loretta are locks imo.

    Joni Mitchell? The 50th anniversary of Blue was covered pretty widely.

    In Canada Lightfoot, Anne Murray, Geddy/Lifeson, Bachman and maybe Ian Tyson. Neil Young obviously, his contribution is larger than some already named.

    Not naming younger people as there are boundaries to my ghoulishness.

    Lynn and Wilson probably. Not the others.

    Stevie Wonder should be a certainty. For a chunk of the ‘70s he was the biggest star in music.
