RIP Niki Lauda 

A legend. Self funded his entry into F1 by taking out loans because his banking elite family blackballed him with local sponsors. Went from last rights to 6 weeks later winning an F1 race still swaddled in bandages making a mockery of anyone that would call Tiger Wood's win this year "the biggest sports comeback ever". Also had his own airline which just makes him a cooler individual than he already was.

Dr. John (Malcolm John Rebennack Jr.)

Was about to post this

Such a unique sound, what a bummer.  My kids are young and a few years ago we had a family night and watched the Disney movie, The Princess and the Frog.  I’m not too into the whole genre but man, when I realized Dr. John was writing and singing songs in it, it brought it to another level. RIP.
