RIP someone or another

Recommended Posts

RIP.  Always thought he was great in every role he played.  As Pars said, droll.  Also one of those actors who was quite good at expressing himself just with his eyes.

Friday Night in San Francisco has always been one of my favorite pure guitar albums of all time.  Will play some cuts and raise a glass to Paco this evening.  Should get inspired, and listen to some flamenco as well.  RIP, Paco.  Only 66 y.o.

RIP.....an incredible talent lost....

 

My son's guitar teacher, who was originally from Portugal, I think had played with PDL....he at least knew him (and same with Andres Segovia)

There's an argument we lost the greatest living director today, Alain Resnais, still making films (and winning awards) at 91. Hiroshima Mon Amour, probably more than any film, colors what I think narrative film can achieve. No great obits yet, but I'll post when I see one. Instead a video summary of HMA...

Fuck.  This thread is really depressing.  Some of my favorites just in the last couple of weeks.

David Brenner died today.  He was 78.  Can't say I ever "got" the fascination with his humor because most of his jokes were painfully obvious and thus not particularly funny, but he seemed like a nice enough guy.  Friggin' cancer.  RIP.

Fuck cancer. I liked David Brenner even with the bad jokes.

"Had Jack A. Kinzler not built model planes as a boy, had he not visited the post office as a youth and had he not, as a grown man, purchased four fishing rods at $12.95 apiece, Skylab — the United States’ $2.5 billion space station — would very likely have been forfeit."

IMPORTANT MESSAGE FROM IGGY:
My dear friend Scott Asheton passed away last night.

Scott was a great artist, I have never heard anyone play the drums with more meaning than Scott Asheton. He was like my brother. He and Ron have left a huge legacy to the world. The Asheton's have always been and continue to be a second family to me.

My thoughts are with his sister Kathy, his wife Liz and his daughter Leanna, who was the light of his life.

Iggy Pop

Bummer on Asheton....I was glad to see the Asheton's reunite with Iggy.  Even when Ron died, it was good to see them still going.

 

And RIP Jack Kinzler; what an interesting story!
