GUEST,Rossey Obit: Alan Merrill [Covid 19] (1951?-2020) (6) RE: Obit: Alan Merrill (Covid 19) 1951-2020 01 Apr 20


Thanks Starship. It does sound as though poor Alan might have stood more of a chance if they'd admitted him sooner. He was still posting on Facebook until just a few days before, and e-mailed a friend of mine quite close to when he went in. Scary how it happens, and tragic when those closest have to fight to see them to say goodbye. 'I love rock n' roll' will live on, just a shame Alan has to share a joint credit on it with another deceased band mate who didn't have anything to do with its writing. But that's the way it's always been since they invented the concept of crediting and royalties! It makes it awkward when reporting a death, when many journalists know Alan Merrill wrote it solo, but have to put co-wrote in there as well, due to the formal credit.
