The last of the original lineup, the oak tree finally got the best of him.  I'll have to put Freebird on a loop just so I can enjoy his slide guitar.

One of the greatest mysteries of life is how the Rolling Stones are still alive.

Three of them aren't.  Ian Stewart, Brian Jones, and Charlie Watts.

There are still two Beatles left as well as two of the classic Who line up.

They're in their late seventies/early eighties, hardly remarkable, and either quit serious substance abuse decades ago or never started.

Though Richards famously does look like he should have died last century or the one before.

Richards has said several times that his secret is that he used only the purest, absolute top quality stuff. 

come to think of it, once when i did my obligatory workplace-health checkup, the doctor asked about smoking and marked that the worst part of smoking is not the nicotine, but the pesticides-chemicals that are used packaging and flavoring, the smell of which can be felt when you lit your first cigarette of the day.

Credit Suisse, 1856-2023, died unexpectedly from a temporary, minor liquidity squeeze with oblivious management soundly asleep at the wheel. It was considered as one of the 30 most dangerous banks of the global financial markets. After its acquisition by reluctant UBS, the resulting bank is now bigger and more dangerous to the stability of the global banking sector than ever, and now, indeed, too big to be bailed out by the Swiss state with a volume thrice that of Switzerland's entire GDP.
