    Isn’t it odd how some people seem older – i.e. Richard Gere. I mention this because when Ray Charles passed away, we had thought wow, we thought he was older. Has nothing to do with looks – “more like longevity in the public arena”.

    Who did mark the passing of time was Danny Bonaduce – I remember him as the little fresh kid of the Partridge Family. I have seen him on talk shows, plus his own male jamboree talk show etc. so this should not be as surprising as it is. Just that time often has some odd perceptions.

    Because celebrities always use old photos or retouched photos so our ideas about how old they are are always distorted!
