This was on my FB yesterday - apparently, he was well-respected and liked by his colleagues. Handsome gent, and so young. RIP Mr Sharp.

Oh my goodness, totally shivers! I can remember his music video as though it were yesterday.

RIP

I had to look it up, he did a cover of "Nobody Knows" by the Tony Rich Project. Such a great song, country or original

@TTM, me too! I instantly thought of it when I read his name. For some reason, I have it in my head that he was married to the sister of another country singer (Neal McCoy?), but I'm not sure. RIP.

You think that when somebody survives cancer that will be it, it's too sad that the treatments that he went through to cure the cancer seem to have been the reasons he died 20 years later.

MISCH said...

That is just too young…RIP

TalksTooMuch said...

Totally OT, but I also love Neal McCoy, Karen!

Read this and just realized I dreamed that Barbara Walters died and 2 or 3 other famous people yesterday. Off to google. Last time this happened I dreamed very vividly of a boss I'd had 25 years ago, when I read the morning's paper, his obituary was in there. Very freaky.
And RIP to this man gone way too soon.

Barbara Walters only appears to have died however, she is alive and well.

Well with cancer it is a damned if you damned if you don't when it comes to treatment - bone cancer is very aggressive so you can look at it he got another 20 years to live vs dead as a teenager. And sounds like he made the most of that time.

We can just hope that cancer treatments are getting less harmful, like the more targeted chemo therapy etc and someone finally figures out a better way.
