    They found on the floor of his hotel room. They called it a suicide by hanging. You can't hope for anything right now because death is unnecessary no matter what the circumstances but you gotta hope it wasn't something stupid like erotic self strangulation.

    It wasn't. His last number he did at his concert was a cover of Led Zeppelin's ‘In My Time of Dying’.

    Missed Powers Boothr. He passed away a few days or ago. First time I remember him was playing Jim Jones in a TV miniseries. Last time was on Agents of SHIELD,  last season.

    Quahog mourns the passing of its Mayor Adam West.  When I first came to Canada I learned/improved my English watching TV. Daily reruns of Batman during the week,  after school were a big part of the learning process.

    Yeah that's too bad. I'm a big fan of his movies. I must have watched the day and dawn of the dead movies a couple of dozen times each.

    A very influential director/creator for sure.

    Romero pretty much invented the zombie genre. A true horror movie legend.

    Chester Bennington, lead singer of Linkin Park, died today. Apparent suicide.

    I grew up with Linkin Park, was my favorite band. This one hurts alot. R.I.P.

    I was just in Chester Vermont last week. Coincidence?

    Too soon?

    My pal, Alice Cooper, revealed a close friendship with the "Rhinestone Cowboy" that I wasn't previously aware of. I was aware of Campbell's legendary chops as a guitarist, including his contributions to Pet Sounds as part of the Wrecking Crew.

    Here is dazzling guitar gods such as Chet Atkins and Roy Clark. Willie Nelson is also on hand among others...

    Roy looked mesmerized.

    I really wasn't ever into country, but I always loved Hee Haw, Mac Davis, Willie Nelson, John Denver and so on. Guess I was into Ol' Country.
