Saw this too. I also grew up with Kenny Rogers, as I’m many of us did. Although sad, he did make it to 81. I’d say that’s a pretty good run. He just seemed like one of those guys that would love forever.

Woke up hearing this on NPR. I recently bought his greatest hits on vinyl. What a treat it sounded so good. One of my faves from the 80s. Anyone here try his chicken restaurant? I never did. RIHP

As a child I listened to his music and what I remember best all those decades later is that he was pretty good at whistling.

My first ever favorite adult song was "The Gambler". I was completely blown away when he was set to perform it on... The Muppet Show!


I was just a little kid, but I was so eager for that episode to air, then was a little disappointed that a Muppet sang all the gambler parts, lol.

My mom loved him so she had plenty of his tapes. I literally grew up listening to him. RIP Kenny.

My Dad's night-stand drawer is where he kept all his Cassettes. It was a veritable "Adult Contemporary" playground. Among the Seals and Croft, English Dan &John Ford Colly, Billy Joel, Captain and Tenielle, Bee Gees, Pointer Sisters, Jim Croce, old K-Tel compilation tapes... there was a Kenny Rogers or two.
I don't remember exactly when I started breaking away from the fold, so to speak, but somewhere there in the early-mid 80's is when I started developing my own tastes.
Early High School saw me introduced to Classic Rock and Depeche Mode. That really made their heads spin! :p

Ah, the K-Tel compilation tapes! I had a few of those when I was about 10 (High Energy, Full Tilt, Rock 80...) and started developing my own tastes. Once I heard AC/DC (mom belonged to a tape club and would sometimes let me pick one) it was all over. I fell in love with the heavy side of music and have been ever since. My tastes have expanded a bit as I've grown older but if you stick me on an island it's gonna be the heavy stuff!

Seriously, I have no life.
Plus he has one of the better songs made as applicable to our current situation (and by far my favorite of his stuff):

Nice! Totally forget that is him; something I'm reminded of every few years or so.

I totally forgot that was Kenny Rogers too! I haven't heard that song in forever!
