The best that he could hope for was to die in his sleep.

The more you think about it, the guy does not deserve to get his death pushed into the background by this bloody virus. One of the real legends of entertainment.

To this day I still chuckle thinking back to arriving in Kuala Lumpur and being baffled by the large amount of Kenny Roger's Chicken Restaurants

:shock:

Good stuff mind

A truly great singer!
Can I recommend a reggae cover of " The Gambler"
by a chap called Busy Signal which you can find on Youtube.
I went down a bit of a Rabbit Hole the other week of
listening to Reggae Country music covers.
This is one of the best.

My girlfriend's friend did a great Islands in the Stream in 1997, hitting Dolly's high notes perfectly.

Good times.

I didn't say she was Dolly, only she sang like her. Much smaller jugs.

Any singer who can pull off lyrics like:

"It's hard to love a man whose legs are bent and paralysed" is a legend in my book.

Happy trails Kenny!

RIP. The man had an awesome voice and a career that included Jazz, psychedelic rock and country. I remember how The Gambler inspired the 2007 England team to reach the RWC final.

Dolly Parton speaks about his death:

Fabulous singer, but saw him in Dublin about 15 years and it was one of the least enjoyable concerts I was ever at. To say he went through the motions would be monumentally generous, and after playing for an hour to the minute he left without even one encore. Throughout that hour he looked bored and disinterested, never tried to engage with the audience, and it was a relief when he fecked off. My wife was a huge fan, and was really disappointed with his attitude.

On Kings North golf course in Myrtle Beach there is a hole called the Gambler after his famous ditty. One of the best holes in golf. It is a par 5 around a lake but if you fancy a gamble you can try the short cut by driving onto an island fairway in the middle of the lake which gives you a chance to hit the green in two. Tried many times .... never done it!
