Celebrity death that bummed you out the most...

There have been a few celebrity passings that bummed me out but I got over them quickly. The one that really bummed me out and still does from time to time - especially when I see one of his old movies or SCTV reruns is John Candy.

He was one of my all-time favorites and I wish he were still around to make me laugh. Here's a shot of John from the early days of SCTV in one of my favorite skits as the obsessive-compulsive maitre'd, Johhny LaRue.

I bet they are laughing their asses off in heaven. Oh, wait, people in heaven don't have asses. Never mind.

Which celebrity do you wish were still around to entertain you or make you feel good in some other way?

Bill Hicks, who is making hell competitive with heaven.

And to a lesser extent Sam Kinison, who seemed like he had burned himself out anyway.

Frank Sinatra.

Heh. Just kidding.

I was really bummed out when I heard Phil Hartman died. It was such a surprise, and he was so talented.

I second Phil Hartman. I can't even count the number of times I've been watching a movie and though, "Phil Hartman would have done that better."

1. Jerry Garcia - I cried. A lot. Not just becuase he died but because he was alone when it happened and that just didn't seem right to me. I wish someone had been there for him.
2. Brent Mydland
3. Phil Hartman
4. Chris Farley

I think everybody else gave my choices ... I'll have to think on this for a while.

Oh.

And Kurt Cobain. He was my hero during my grunge phase.

I don't know about which one do I wish were still here to entertain me, but the most traumatic one was John Lennon. I was just a little kid at the time, but my mother fell to pieces, and I reacted by hiding in the closet for a couple of hours. Stayed home from school that day because Mom couldn't pull herself together in time to get us on the bus.

Yeah, she had some issues.
