Christine McVie, 79, British singer and keyboardist, member of Fleetwood Mac. Born in Lancashire, the daughter of a musician father and psychic/faith healer mother, she joined Fleetwood Mac in 1970 after marrying husband John McVie, the band's bass guitarist, and stayed with the band through 1998, and rejoining in 2014. She typically shared songwriting and vocal duties with bandmates Lindsey Buckingham and Stevie Nicks - "Over My Head", "Say You Love Me" and "Don't Stop" were among her best-known songs and biggest hits. Another hit, and personal favorite:

They were a classic example - maybe THE classic example in rock and roll - of emotional turmoil and instability being a great catalyst for art.

She was an excellent singer. Kind of overshadowed by Stevie & Lindsey.

I think she's a better singer than Stevie - more melodic, just "prettier", though I guess Stevie's voice is quite distinctive. I probably like Lindsey the most as a singer, but the fact that the band had three people who could sing lead, and were all pretty different from each other, was certainly one of it's great strengths. My brother and his then-wife saw them some years ago in Montreal, kind of wish I'd been able to go with them.

Nick Bolletieri, 91

American tennis coach. Those who don't follow tennis won't know Bolletieri. For those who do, he's a major figure in the game. Bolletieri was the most prominent youth tennis coach of the past half century. Among those whose development he oversaw were Maria Sharapova, Andre Agassi, Jim Courier, Monica Seles, and many other highly accomplished players. Bolletieri was also an innovator in elite youth sports development through his private academy, which helped to pioneer the concept in the United States of a live-in sports academy.

Despite his extensive accomplishments, Bolletieri was not an entirely benign figure. He was legendary for the intensity of his commitment to tennis and the pressure he put on his players. Agassi, if I remember correctly, was one who suffered emotionally from the intensity of Bolletieri's coaching. So dedicated was Bolletieri that, when his wife told him to spend more time with his family, a me-or-Agassi ultimatum, Bolletieri said he chose Agassi and promptly got a divorce.

Very sad to hear this. Undoubtedly one of my favourite directors of all time and one of the most unique visual styles the medium has seen (highlighted by the 1966-73 stretch)

I was always hoping there was a chance he might do one more film, though of course it became less and less likely for every year that past.

I still have many Yoshida films left to see, and he's definitely someone I've been keen to explore further. "Joen" is probably next.

Mills Lane, 85

Does anyone else remember Mills Lane, American lawyer, TV personality, and boxing referee? It was the latter role which first brought him public attention. He was feisty enough in the ring and refereed enough big fights (including Holyfield vs. Tyson II, which featured the infamous ear-biting incident) that he briefly became famous beyond boxing and even parlayed that fame into a few seasons as a TV judge on a court show. It helped that Lane was an actual judge as well in Nevada.

Wait, don't TV judges have to be actual judges? Like Judge Judy? Or are they just lawyers who get a show? I've never understood how that worked, but I always assumed that they at least had to have the credentials, especially since they have that "you cannot appeal" clause for all decisions.

I also remember Mills Lane as the voice of the referee in the claymation MTV series “Celebrity Deathmatch” from the late ‘90s.

Joe Kittinger, 94

American air force officer. Long before David Bowie claimed the title, Kittinger was the man who fell to earth. He was also a fighter pilot, but he's most remembered for his participation in Project Excelsior. This was in 1959, during those postwar years when massive military R&D investment took aviation very quickly from the era of propeller aircraft to advanced jets which set speed and altitude records that still exist today. Project Excelsior was intended for research into high-altitude bailouts. If pilots were going to fly very high, the air force needed to do research to figure out how they could survive if they had to exit their airplanes very high.

Kittinger was the guinea pig. Carried aloft by helium balloons, Kittinger made three free-fall descents, the final from 102,800 feet. These were risky endeavors. During one descent, Kittinger went into a spin that rendered him unconscious. For the final free fall, the pressurization in his glove failed, and his hand quickly swelled to an unrecognizable size. But he survived. He survived and lived long enough that 52 years later, he served as capsule commander for the man who eventually broke his free fall record.

Here's Kittinger, stepping into the void.

Well damn. I've seen a couple of hers (though one I wouldn't count), but American Factory was certainly super interesting. And qualifies for a particular challenge this month...

Pele, 82

My father lived in The Hague from 1968 to 1972, and he always claimed that Johan Cruyff was the best football player he ever saw. But if you pressed him, after a while, he would admit that it was actually Pele.
