Worrell, Herr, Santucci, Cunningham Die Over the Weekend

We lost some great ones over the weekend — Bernie Worrell the American keyboardist and composer – best known as a founding member of P-Funk, the Parliamentary-Funkadelic, has passed. Worrell was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1997. He was 72. We also lost, Michael Herr, the author of the Vietnam Classic “Dispatches” — a raw and personal account of being a war correspondent in Vietnam. He was 76. Queens district attorney, John J. Santucci who later became a member of the City Council and a State Senator passed Sunday. He was 85. And finally, Bill Cunningham has left us. The New York Times said, “(he) turned fashion photography into his own branch of cultural anthropology on the streets of New York,” if you were lucky you might have seen him riding through midtown on his bicycle shooting pictures of our outfits as we stood waiting for traffic lights and hailing cabs. He was designated a living landmark and will be remembered for his philosophy, “Money is the cheapest thing. Liberty is the most expensive.” He was 87.
