Before there was MJ and Scottie, before there was zen-master Phil there was Norm Van Lier and Johnny "Red" Kerr. This morning, both are gone.

Van Lier was found unresponsive in his home yesterday morning by authorities. Red succumbed to the cancer he had fought so long last night. Norm was only 61. Red was 76.
