carpenters -We've Only Just Begun
I can't get by the fact that this huge star, Karen Carpenter, died at 32. John wrote most of the music that they sung and recorded. They are/were brother and sister, coming from a Mormon home. Stress was a big factor, mainly stage fright before a performance. She was dieting in an unhealthy way. She was hospitalized. When she came home and in that afternoon, she was in her family home closet getting clothes to wear, or putting them away. She died on that hot summer afternoon. Half of a legend was down at 32 y/o.
