Richard Nader, whose wildly popular oldies concerts at Madison Square Garden in the 1970s helped jump-start a revival of classic rock ’n’ roll and open up second careers for many former stars, died Dec. 1 in Stony Brook, N.Y. He was 69.

The cause was complications from Parkinson’s disease, said his ex-wife, Deborah Nader.

The  Obituary continues at The  New York Times.

Very sad news. Unfortunately Parkinson’s affects many people in their 50′s and we should all be aware of it’s signs and symptoms.

Good advice Webmaster. I would urge all of the OSML readers to click on the link to your blog and get to know what to look out for. It really seems that Parkinson’s is turning up more and more in the population.
