Mama Cass would have been 72 this year

Hard to believe she's been gone almost 40 years . Love her music in "Beautiful Thing"

How old would the ham sandwich that killed her would have been?

by Owenreply 109/07/2013

She died of a heart attack - please no more ham sandwich jokes. She was exhausted, and overweight.

by Owenreply 209/07/2013

No, she wouldn't have been 72, OP. She died. She went when she was suppose to.

by Owenreply 309/07/2013

HAD she lived, she would be 72 - what's so hard to get about that, you anal douche ?

by Owenreply 409/08/2013

Her harmony parts in the best of The Mamas & the Papas songs are exquisite...and her leads on songs like "Words of Love" and "Dream a Little Dream of Me" were beautiful.

"Make Your Own Kind of Music" was a great solo effort.

Cass had a great talent.

Like John Phillips once remarked, "What a voice."

by Owenreply 609/08/2013

One of the most perfect voices ever.

Listen to her sing "Young Girl's Lament" and tell me you don't want this to be played at your funeral.

by Owenreply 709/08/2013

We've never heard of her, old-timie.

by Owenreply 809/08/2013

Remember Monterrey Pop - isn't Janis Joplin groooooovy!

by Owenreply 909/08/2013

Was she that great big fat girl?

by Owenreply 1009/08/2013

Oh R8 get a life!

She was great and would have been one of the greats of entertainment.

I remember her from when I was a little kid.

I remember seeing her in the Mamas and the Papas and then when they broke up, seeing her on the variety shows alone trying out her solo career.

She was great! and she had a nice personality - genuine.

She died much too young and had she lived would have gone onto further greatness.

Every hit was a great high camp masterpiece. I don't know how the years would've treated her though, look at Spanky McFarlane, similar, gorgeous voice but completely forgotten.

by Owenreply 1209/08/2013

Wow, I had NO IDEA she was that young when she died. I thought she was in her 50's when she died. I actually had to go look all of this up.

by Owenreply 1309/08/2013

She died in 1974.

by Owenreply 1409/08/2013

[quote]HAD she lived, she would be 72

She didn't, so this idea of how old she would be is dumb.

by Owenreply 1509/08/2013

It puts the ham sandwich down or it gets the hose.

by Owenreply 1609/08/2013

That would have been her waist size, right?
