American Roots Radio recently announced the passing of Daphne Taupin.

The Facebook post says: ”If you’re so inclined, say a prayer for safe passage for Daphne, and while you’re doing so, maybe one for Bernie, his two brothers and the entire Taupin family to give them solace in this time of such a loss. Thanks so much, dearhearts…”
From July of 2010 to December of 2014, Bernie Taupin’s eclectic and educational radio show, American Roots Radio, was a popular hit on SiriusXM’s The Loft.
The songwriter’s Web site contains a photo of Bernie with his mother, and a note below that reading, ”Rest now, my shining star.”
