    Martin Landau.

    So good in "North By Northwest".

    89.  Not a bad innings.

    I'll always remember him from Space 1999 and playing crazy old Sarge in the alien horror flick Without Warning.

    I don't think a lot people know he was a member of the legendary LA studio session group "The Wrecking Crew" The hit songs he played guitar on during those years would blow your mind. Not too mention some sick break records.

    Guitarist John Abercrombie passed today after a long illness. He had a long and diverse career but around here he'll always be known for this. RIP John...

    The Wrecking Crew Doc on Netflix is a good watch.

    RIP Harry Dean Stanton

    So many iconic roles, and, from what I've read, someone who was pretty much the same in real life as on the screen.

    Damn, Daptone.  RIP Charles Bradley.  What a great singer, and a really inspirational life story.

    Death is not the end. It's just another change. Rest in Peace Charles Bradley & Sharon Jones.

    RIP also to the great Célia. Here she is doing a great version of this Verocai classic:

    Yeah really sad about Tom Petty, he seemed like such a dude. 
    Really like the Celia version of Verocai.

    RIP underrated drummer Grady Tate. I'll always remember him best from Schoolhouse Rock cartoons :(


  • RIP Fred Cole, 50+ years of great sounds from Weeds/Lollipop Shoppe to the Rats to Dead Moon and Pierced Arrows.

    RIP Malcolm Young....  David Cassidy in critical condition  :(

  • I suppose it would be mean of me to point David Cassidy in the direction of Hell-buquerque.

  • Also passing - Charles Manson, itinerant folkie who found notoriety in another field.  Now playing beac volleyball in the afterlife with Reagan, Nixon, and Murry Wilson.
