Singer David Olney Dies On Stage During Performance

Singer David Olney Dies On Stage During Performance According to Variety Singer-songwriter David Olney died Saturday night at age 71 during a performance at 30A Songwriters Festival in Florida.

Some news reports said he “collapsed” on stage, but that isn’t quite true: Olney simply became still on his stool, leading some audience members and even the musicians beside him to think he was simply taking a pause, before they realized what had happened and lowered him to the stage.

Amy Rigby, who was sitting next to him, described his last moments in a Facebook post: “Olney was in the middle of his third song when he stopped, apologized, and shut his eyes,” Rigby wrote. “He was very still, sitting upright with his guitar on, wearing the coolest hat and a beautiful rust suede jacket we laughed about because it was raining like hell outside the boathouse where we were playing — I just want the picture to be as graceful and dignified as it was, because it at first looked like he was just taking a moment.”

Added Rigby, “Scott Miller had the presence of mind to say we needed to revive him. Doctors in the audience and 30A folks were all working so hard to get him to come to … We all lost someone important last night.”

Olney was born in 1948 and recorded 20 albums throughout his career. The following video was uploaded earlier on the day of his death.

Olney was a revered figure in the folk-rock and Americana communities who had recorded 20 albums of his own as well as having his songs covered by Emmylou Harris, Linda Ronstadt, Del McCoury and his former roommate Steve Earle.

The late Townes Van Zandt famously said of Olney: “Any time anyone asks me who my favorite music writers are… I say Mozart, Lightnin Hopkins, Bob Dylan and Dave Olney. Dave Olney is one of the best songwriters I’ve ever heard — and that’s true. I mean that from my heart.”

DJ Kay Slay Allegedly Died Of AIDS

A former friend of DJ Kay Slay is spreading a very disturbing rumor about him – saying that he knows what truly killed the legendary NYC DJ. This former friend is telling people on Clubhouse that Kay Slay “died of AIDS.”

Snow Billy, is a former friend of Kay Slay and NYC rapper who once managed Tekashi 6ix9ine. He went on Clubhouse yesterday and told his listeners, “DJ/rapper Kay Slay had full blown AIDS.”

Officially, Kay Slay’s family released a statement at the time of his death – saying that the legendary DJ passed away after a long bout of Covid-19. The family did not reveal any other comorbidity that may have contributed to his death.

We are not able to confirm the veracity of Snow Billy’s statements – and it doesn’t appear that he has any evidence to back up his claims either.

But even without any evidence, Snow Billy’s ‘AIDS’ rumor is spreading like wildfire all over social media.

Listen to the hundreds of people on Clubhouse discussing the rumor that Snow Billy started. We’re not posting the audio here, because it contains a lot of bad language, and many questionable assertions.
