A good example of this would be Bruce Forsyth he,s one of the last titans of old school and it will truly be the end of an era
Yes, Bruce Forsyth, Ronnie Corbett and Ken Dodd spring to mind as the last links to the old era of entertainment.
The last two Beatles dying will be similar in musical terms.
Lots of people who were famous in the 50s/60s/70s and really represent that time are all heading towards their twilight years now.
I'm old enough to remember when Charlie Chaplin died and how people reacted then.
