I was on the phone with an insurance company today doing a precert (convincing the insurance that the rehab deserves to be paid for treating a one of their subscribers. I was listening to Yes and had it on pretty low ... but I guess that Roundabout is pretty distinctive ... anyway the care manager said, "am I hearing Yes? Why are you listening to Yes?" So I told her it was because of Chris Squire's death. She hadn't heard and got quite upset ... she was a huge fan and had even gone to England to see them, and is in one of their videos. I did apologize for being a bit brusque with the death notification.

And I got the treatment authorized. I don't know if this was related in any way to the fan-sharing.

Val Doonican. I'd honestly forgotten him, but he was a light entertainment icon in my childhood years. Grandparents loved him.

omg I kind of assumed he'd died years ago...

He was the original most interesting man in the world.

Best looking man in film history?

'Aggravatingly handsome', is the term I use.

RIP Roger Rees

One of the greats.

I hated his character (Robin Colcord, sp?) on 'Cheers'. Decent enough actor, just didn't like the character. I guess that's a compliment, now that I think about it, because the character was supposed to be unlikeable.



...survived by his husband, Rick...
Called it. Years ago.

I'd love to have seen him on stage. By all accounts he was mesmerising.

He was great as Sherlock's actor friend in Elementary. He was only in two episodes - only a couple of scenes altogether, but I loved his character.

Lord Marbury was our favorite character on The West Wing. So bitingly dismissive.

That's pretty cool.

My only brush with fame was when I met Dennis Weaver in the Nashville airport when I was ten. (ETA: He was about thirteen feet tall.)

A buddy of mine does own Roy Orbison's old refrigerator.

Oh, and Momdigr and I once ate supper across the aisle from Ronnie McDowell at an Applebee's.
