A lot of my childhood heroes and artists have been dying off in a massive wave the past few years.

A lot of this is the fact that I am no longer a spring chicken myself, but some have come as huge shockers.

No one could have anticipated the deaths of "Fast and Furious" star Paul Walker or the up-and-coming Anton Yelchin or ... Prince.

We often see fake news posts go viral on social media to see how many people they can troll by getting them to share it. Heck, I admit to sharing at least one.

Now it isn't real news until I see it on one of the bigs -- CNN, Fox, NBC, ABC, CBS, etc. At least if I quote one of them, they look like the idiots.

They usually use stars that of a certain age or reputation.

I mean, it's not hard to imagine Charlie Sheen's week-old corpse being found in a seedy hotel outside Vegas at some point this year.

Which got me to thinking of which celebrities we should prepare our hearts for next as Death strolls down Rodeo Drive with a shotgun.
