YOU KNOW THEY GOT A HELL OF A BAND: How's this for an odd musical death trio? First, as Adam noted, Dan Flores, the man shouted "Tequila!" on the song by the same name slipped this mortal worm.

Now comes news that songwriter Paul Vance, who wrote "Itsy Bitsy Teenie Weenie Yellow Polka Dot Bikini" has donned his last swimsuit, and Sir Malcolm Arnold, the composer who wrote the score to "The Bridge Over the River Kwai" (go ahead and start whistling) has fallen on his last detonator.

A Paul Vance died, just not that Paul Vance. The Paul Vance did claim for years, even lying to his wife, that he was that Paul Vance. Confused? This ought to sort it out for you.

Luckily, though not for him, Flores and Arnold can jam with original Bad Company bassist Boz Burrell, who reports indicate was, in fact, bad company up until the day he died.
