    Shiiiiiit.  I'm not deep on any level with Birkin but I am down about Donato.  Such a unique sense of harmony.  I had this on today:



    Whatever dimension it's from, I must have come from there.

    The one on Muse that he did with Deodato is crazy too



    I was going to see him last month, but he had to cancel due to an issue with his back which did not allow him to sit upright for long periods of time. Unsure if that and his death, aside from his age, were related. I got to see him live five years ago, though.

    Tony Bennett, 96.

    Good innings, the youth.  Got to know him via Bill Evans, the consummate accompanist.

    96 is a good run. I hope to make it that long or longer.

    R.I.P.

    His life story is pretty remarkable. From childhood, WWII, Civil Rights, entertainment career, etc etc etc. What a life. Dude should really have his story properly told on the big screen.

    Oops. Maybe it is real. So odd. I just read an article yesterday saving his death was a hoax.

    Oh, man...I used to love the show and movies when I was a kid. I had the action figures and everything. Remember the Alamo('s basement).

    Didn’t Pee Wee Herman get arrested for masturbating in a cinema during a kid’s film?

     Paedo Herman.

    It was a porno theater, not a kid's film.

    Not sure if this is what was being referred to, but according to Wiki there was a second incident ten years after, this time involving questionable materials tucked away inside lot buys of vintage gay man raer. If I were in his dapper white shoes, I would have exercised discernment to vet and report garbage from an otherwise legal collection. However it was similar to Pete Townshend's "I was doing research to prove a point" case: insufficient evidence.

    yeah the pr0n case involved him and Jeffrey Jones IIRC

    damn…. just played Cold Fact today…such dope album, so glad dude made a come back, i think read his last show was 2018

    Everyone talks about "Exorcist", "French Connection" and "To Live And Die In L.A.", as they should, but "Sorcerer" is underrated; one of the best remakes ever. And "Killer Joe"...that was something else.

    Johnny Hardwick aka Dale Gribble aka Rusty Shackleford aka Sparky Wilson aka the Arlen Soldier Of Fortune died...or DID he? 

  • JimsterJimster Cruffiton.etsy.com 6,904 Posts
    I wasn't a massive "Exorcist" fan but I did like 3, with the best jump-scare of all-time.  Just checked, Friedkin eventually quit that production but it doesn't detract from my enjoyment of the film.  Although, I guess it's been a while and I probably wouldn't watch it now - mentally I'm looking for something less emotionally draining. 

    But not Adam Sandler.  I said "Less emotionally draining."

    I loved "French Connection" and "L.A"., especially the surprise ending.

    I need to see "Sorcerer" and "Killer Joe".  I remember my brother raving about the former.  Roy Scheider was a master at portraying a man out of his depth.

  • ketanketan Warmly booming riffs 3,103 Posts
    Yeah, Sorcerer is under-appreciated for sure.

    In terms of late output, Killer Joe is wild, but my privatemindgarden fav is Bug.  Great slow burn creepy love story with a jaw-droppingly intense ending.

    I don't know how I missed this, but Friedkin directed Blue Chips with Nolte and Shaq.

    At least old iron face will win a title there.

    If he can he do it on a windy night in Wolfsburg...

  • Friedkin's a major one, though I've only seen the basics from him. It's made me want to properly dive in to some of his lesser known stuff as everything of his I've seen, I've enjoyed. His commentary and interviews that were passed around after his death have shown him to be quite a voice, too.

    Richard Davis. A solid resume and discography, that guy.



    Fun fact: the LP above was intended to be the soundtrack to a TV pilot / film where he was going to play a silent, Christlike junkyard owner who cares for neighborhood kids. Of course, it never came to be.

    David McCallum, Scottish actor who won wide fame for The Man from U.N.C.L.E. and NCIS.

    And with Alexrod, sampled for Dre's "The Next Episode".

    Most of McCallum's obituaries I have read, completely gloss over his contribution to music.

    Indeed.  He was from a musical background - his parents were both classical musicians; his mother, Dorothy Dorman, a cellist, his father, David McCallum, a violinist and leader of the London Philharmonic Orchestra.

    I read that he was able to perform an autopsy, if he had to, based on all the character study he did for his role on NCIS
