Whitney always looked great. What a shame and a wasted life full of talent and natural gifts. But, as they say, we are the architects of our own destiny. Sleep Well Whitney.

Don't wanna laugh at other people's names, but if you come from near about Croatia, Bosnia, or Serbia, you know Bolan is not the best way for people to call you...
