Winston "Buddy" Deane was the man at the junction where Eddie Fisher and Teresa Brewer gave way to Little Richard and Jackie Wilson and Elvis. He caused a generation of baby boomer adolescents to rush home from school every afternoon and turn on the television so they could learn how to be cool. He played phonograph records for a living, and it helped create an American soundtrack. The death of Deane, the Pied Piper of mid-century Baltimore teens, will symbolize for many the day the music died.

When Elizabeth Taylor left this world — with instructions that she be "fashionably late" for her own funeral, a diva to the last — she took with her a list of Hollywood epithets that may never again describe a leading lady. With her bird's egg-sized diamonds, she was glamorous in a way that will never be used to describe any other actress. Cameron Diaz looking sweaty and ripped after a workout with baseball boyfriend Alex Rodriguez? Elizabeth would have handed him a martini by the pool.

Eddie Watt lives in peaceful anonymity, in a speck of a town in Nebraska, where the talk is of crops and cows and Cornhusker football. The Orioles? Not a word. Many in North Bend (pop. 1,200) don't know there's a celebrant in their midst. Mention that Watt, 70, a longtime resident, owns two World Series rings and they'd scratch their heads and say, "Eddie What ?" Watt likes it there. After 42 years in baseball — including eight with the Orioles (1966-73) as a bullpen ace — he retired in 2003 and left the game behind.
