Yeah, I saw that. He was a good actor. Didn't stir up much attention. Just created a list of roles and did them all well. Very sad.

I remember Bill from Aliens. My mother took me to see the movie when I was 13. She hated it, of course, but I wasn't old enough to go see it alone. RIP Bill Paxton. Now the game really is over.

RIP Freeman and Paxton -- so sad.

 

Freeman:  He was very popular in the Bay Area when I was in high school and college.  Haven't remembered that time in forever.

 

Paxton:  Trivia note:  He had a bit part in Terminator as one of the gang-bangers Arnold took clothes from right after his nude entrance in the movie.  Really loved Bill Paxton for so many great movie memories.

Chuck Berry, Legend Of Rock And Roll, Dies At 90

From NPR Music http://www.npr.org/s...roll-dies-at-90

 

Legendary musician Chuck Berry, who was central to the development of rock and roll beginning in the '50s with indelible hits like "Roll Over Beethoven," "Rock and Roll Music" and "Johnny B. Goode," died today in St. Charles County, Mo. He was 90 years old. His death was confirmed by the St. Charles County Police department.

Charles Edward Berry grew up in Saint Louis, Mo. the fourth of six children, developing a career that epitomized a bad-boy image which musicians have tried to cop ever since. Berry was the real thing. He spent time in reform school for robbery at 18 (with a nonfunctional pistol, he claimed), went to prison for income tax evasion and transported a minor across state lines for quote "immoral purposes."

Initially beginning his career as a beautician with an lifelong interest in music, Berry began to slowly ease towards the St. Louis nightlife scene in the early '50s as a member of the Jonnie Johnson trio. As a solo musician, he emulated the smooth vocals of his idol Nat King Cole and admired the gritty blues of another idol, Muddy Waters. Berry told NPR in 2000 that he met Waters after 1955 show in Chicago, who then directed him to Chess Records. From there, the rest was rock and roll history.

Berry continued creating well into his later years — he announced a record last October at the age of 90 following a 38-year hiatus.

 
 

As John Lennon once put it, "If you tried to give rock 'n' roll another name, you might have called it Chuck Berry."

A few of my friends were actually shocked that he was still alive up to that point, I know he was still actively touring and even made a few appearances at my city and in New Orleans in the past.

Chuck Barris, creator and host of 'The Gong Show,' dies at 87
 
Charles Hirsch "Chuck" Barris, creator of “The Gong Show” and “The Dating Game,” died Monday night at home in Palisades, New York, according to a representative of his wife. He was 87.
 
The popular game show creator, producer and host died of natural causes.
 
It was in 1965 that Barris launched "The Dating Game," which was an instant hit with numerous imitations. Continuing to dominate the TV game show landscape, Barris next introduced "The Newlywed Game," "The Game Game" and a Mama Cass special, among others.
 
"Those were the happiest days of my life," Barris said in a 2002 interview with The Times. "It was Camelot."
 
He debuted one of his most successful programs, "The Gong Show," in 1976. Barris also hosted the show while celebrities like David Letterman and Jaye P. Morgan served as judges. It was popular, but many of his shows, like "The $1.98 Beauty Show," were ravaged by critics as demeaning to contestants.

"I took the criticism so hard," said Barris. He wanted them to be fun programs for all to enjoy, but also never wanted those shows -- especially "Gong Show" -- to be his only legacy.
 
"I've created hit TV shows, but nothing has been great. I've written rock songs, but I'm not a big music star. I've penned a bestselling book, but I'm not Hemingway or Fitzgerald. I've never saved any lives. It's just middle-of-the-road greatness. So I know what my legacy will be. It's 'The Gong Show' and that's a shame. It's not the legacy I want to have. It gave the impression of me being a clown, a court jester. None of that's true."
 
In 2016, ABC was considering reviving "The Gong Show" with actor Will Arnett.
 
Barris is survived by his wife of 16 years, the former Mary Clagett.
