25 years ago . . . In 1989, JIM BACKUS died of pneumonia at the age of 76. He was the voice of Mr. Magoo, but more importantly the millionaire from Gilligan’s island.
45 years ago . . . In 1969, BRIAN JONES of the ROLLING STONES drowned in his swimming pool. Some say it was murder by some guys working on his mansion. Brian Jones was only 26.
43 years ago . . . In 1971, JIM MORRISON, of The Doors, died at the age of 27, from heart failure in his bathtub in Paris. Or did he? Some still don’t believe it.
