Dr Hook's Ray Sawyer Dies Aged 81 on the Last Day of 2018?

"[RaySawyer died in Daytona, Florida, after "a brief illness", according to US website Page Six.
The band is best known for the song When You're in Love with a Beautiful Woman, which was a number one hit in the UK in 1979.
Sawyer joined Dr Hook in 1969, two years after he lost an eye in a car accident.
Despite not being the lead singer, his eye patch - and cowboy hat - meant he was the most easily recognised.
But Sawyer, who was born in Chickasaw, Alabama, in 1937, did take lead vocals on one early hit, 1972's Cover of the Rolling Stone.
In the song's lyrics, he sang: "The biggest thrill we've never known is the thrill that'll getcha when you get your picture on the cover of the Rolling Stone."
Dr Hook did eventually appear - in caricature - on the front of the famous magazine in 1973.
Thanks for the music and memories Ray and I included Dr. Hook's song 'Storms Never Last' for Donald Trump for his year ahead;-)
Trump's Tower?-)

Jimmy Osmond treated for stroke
"Pop star Jimmy Osmond is being treated for a stroke that was diagnosed after he came off stage following a pantomime performance on Thursday.
Osmond, 55, was playing Captain Hook in Peter Pan at the Birmingham Hippodrome."
""Jimmy loved being a part of the Hippodrome's well-renowned panto, and his portrayal of Captain Hook was both dastardly and heartwarming.
"He won the adoration not just of our audiences, but also of all our staff - we all send Jimmy and his family very best wishes for a speedy recovery."
Darren Day
will replace him as Captain Hook in the pantomime."
