The cause of his death was not revealed. He did have a liver transplant in May this year.

Read the report from The Rolling Stone.

His most well known song is Walk on the Wild Side. Classic. Love the lyrics too:

And another classic, Perfect Day.






He emerged from Apollo 11 on July 20, 1969 and became the first man on the moon, followed right after by Buzz Aldrin. As Neil took his first step on the moon’s surface, he famously declared: “one small step for [a] manone giant leap for mankind.”

Now you’ve taken your biggest leap, sir. Rest in Peace.

Singapore, Nov. 28 (Xinhua) — Singapore’s Foreign Ministry confirmed on Friday night that the Singaporean woman taken hostage at a luxury Mumbai hotel has been killed.

She is Lo Hwei Yen, a 28-year-old Singaporean lawyer, said Jai Sohan Singh, Director of the Consular Directorate of Singapore’s Foreign Ministry, at a news conference.

Her body was identified by her husband Michael Puhaindran, who had flown out to Mumbai on Thursday night,

Indian authorities had found her body on the 19th floor of the Oberoi Hotel.

She had gone to Mumbai on a business trip on Wednesday morning, but found herself trapped when terrorists overran the hotel.

It’s the new world disorder.
It could have been any one of us.

Sincere condolences and heartfelt prayers to the family.
