Yes, really quite sad. And yet it makes me think of another situation which always infuriates me. Steve Howe's son died and they cancelled the rest of the tour....completely understandable...When John Entwhistle died, The Who played THE NEXT NIGHT saying the show must go on.......WTF.....I still can't wrap my arms around that. I can only assume that they saw it coming and there was more to it than we know.


Anyway, also.....

Jerry Garcia's older brother, the one who accidentally chopped off half his finger, Clifford "Tiff" Garcia.

It doesn't matter (to your point), but it was actually 4 nights later the Who started their tour after he died.

they actually were on tour when he died, that happened in Vegas after a show if I am not mistaken, I also think the show I saw on 4th of July at the Sacramento Amphitheater was the first show they played after his death... :idea:

Stanislav Petrov, who averted possible nuclear war, dies at 77

A former Soviet military officer credited with averting a possible nuclear disaster at the peak of the Cold War has died at the age of 77.


Stanislav Petrov was on duty at a Russian nuclear early warning centre in 1983 when computers wrongly detected incoming missiles from the US.

He took the decision that they were a false alarm and did not report them to his superiors.

His actions, which came to light years later, possibly prevented nuclear war.

Petrov died at his home in Moscow in May but his death has only now been made public.

In an interview with the BBC in 2013, Petrov told how he had received computer readouts in the early hours of the morning of 26 September 1983 suggesting several US missiles had been launched.

If he had been wrong, the first nuclear blasts would have happened minutes later.

"Twenty-three minutes later I realised that nothing had happened. If there had been a real strike, then I would already know about it. It was such a relief," he recalled.

A later investigation concluded that Soviet satellites had mistakenly identified sunlight reflecting on clouds as the engines of intercontinental ballistic missiles.

Petrov, who retired with the rank of lieutenant colonel, died on 19 May but news of his passing became widely known only this month, thanks to a chance phone call.

German film-maker Karl Schumacher, who first brought Petrov's story to an international audience, telephoned him to wish him a happy birthday on 7 September only to be informed by his son, Dmitry Petrov, that he had passed away.

Mr Schumacher announced the death online and it was eventually picked up by media outlets.
