Udo Jürgens (1934-2014)

I just saw the news that Udo Jürgens died today of a heart attack while out for a walk.

I am very sorry to hear about it.

He was a very talented and witty man, though not especially moral.

I am reminded of one of some lines from one of his more famous works:

Und das Ende vom Lied hat wohl jeder geahnt
Der Tod hat reium sie dort abgesahnt.

(For those of you who don't know: No, that is not a typo; it's a pun.)
