Fake news ?

If it is, I'll remove the thread...

Or are the 'fake news' reports 'fake news' themselves ?

This time I'm sad to say it's true.
From Karen Fontana:

It is with a heavy heart that I regret to inform you that DJ passed away peacefully in his sleep tonight.

Awww Tony and Col' :cry: :cry: :cry:

Words cannot possibly explain how sad i am to hear of his death. Of late I been playing a lot of the '68 comeback and DJ Fontana featured a lot on the two sit down concerts. I was just thinking last night watching it yet again what an easy going man DJ was and a true friend as well as great muso. R.I.P D.J. Hope you find Elvis, Scotty and Bill over the other side :(

R.I.P DJ, you played a big part in our early rock n roll. We will always have those
Hound Dog fills, classic lead in to My Baby Left Me and so much more
