    You probably loved it without knowing it too - Glen was a member of The Wrecking Crew and played on TONS of classic west-coast 60s hits before striking out on his own.

    Way back when I took guitar lessons I had a Glen Campbell songbook. My Mom might still have it.

    Never read music but if he heard a song once he could play it. One of the best musicians ever.

    ^Most here are probably too young for Jerry Lewis to resonate but he was a huge comedic star in the 50s and 60s. Loved watching his movies when I was a child.

    Also Poltergeist(well, Spielberg apparently had a hand in that one as well).

    I saw TCM for the first time around 2001 or so. It's actually not bad, for what it is.

    All of those problems he had and the ongoing ordeals of his house. It turned out gorgeous in the end. It's too bad he couldn't have lived another twenty or so years to enjoy it. Too young. Such a gifted talent and a very charitable person. Gifted artists generally come with a bit of eccentricity, Con was no exception. Rest peacefully friend.

    Ronald Harry "Skip" Prokop (December 13, 1943 - August 30, 2017) was a Canadian drummer and band leader who was a driving force in Canadian rock music, creating seminal bands, including The Paupers. In 1969, Prokop co-founded the rock group Lighthouse with Paul Hoffert. The world’s first 13-piece rock orchestra, it achieved international success as Canada’s leading rock group.

    Science fiction author Jerry Pournelle, 84

    In 1985, Footfall, in which Robert A. Heinlein was a thinly veiled minor character, reached the number one spot on the New York Times Best Seller List. Another bestseller, Lucifer’s Hammer (1977), reached number two. Both novels were written with Larry Niven.


    Pournelle wrote The Strategy of Technology (1970). The Strategy has been used as a textbook at the United States Military Academy (West Point), the United States Air Force Academy (Colorado Springs), the Air War College, and the National War College.

    What a career he had. I don't think there is anyone alive that does not recognize his face. His final movie is yet to be released, it will likely do well.

    Jake LaMotta: Legendary Raging Bull boxer dies at 95

    Jake LaMotta, the uncompromising fighter portrayed by Robert De Niro in Raging Bull, has died aged 95.

    The former world middleweight boxing champion died in a nursing home due to complications from pneumonia, his wife told US news site TMZ.

    Based on LaMotta's 1970 memoir, Raging Bull depicts an emotional fighter struggling with life outside the ring.

    The 1980 film, directed by Martin Scorsese, earned De Niro a Best Actor award at the Oscars.

    1:35 PM PT -- Sources tell us at 10:30 Monday morning a chaplain was called to Tom's hospital room. We're told the family has a do not resuscitate order on Tom. The singer is not expected to live throughout the day, but he's still clinging to life. A report that the LAPD confirmed the singer's death is inaccurate -- the L.A. County Sheriff's Dept. handled the emergency.

    Petty's passing really hurts. Just picked up Full Moon Fever a few months ago on vinyl and gotta wait until I'm out of this CNRL sh1thole until I can l can give it a spin, among many of his other records.

    RIP Tom. You and your fabulous music will be missed.

    Very sad about this but so glad that I saw his last concert here and got him off my bucket list. It was one of the best and I go to a lot of concerts. He was such an insightful guy with experiences and tales about all the greats and made my Sirius subscription worth it just to hear him.
