The ones that still sting are the ones that I am constantly reminded of, such as Phil Hartman (whose work is all over the shows I love), and to a lesser degree Dimebag (Pantera), who is from my hometown, was such a harmless guy, and one of the last of the breed of true heavy metal guitar soloists.
There's a level of facility that everyone needs to accomplish, and from there
it's a matter of deciding for yourself how important ultra-facility is to your
expression. ... I found, like Joseph Campbell said, if you just follow whatever
gives you a little joy or excitement or awe, then you're on the right track.

John Lennon put me into pause mode for like two hours. If the world had stopped turning, or polarity had changed.

Janis Joplin and Jimi Hendrix were like a one two punch.

So few celebrities I like were still alive when I began liking them, or making the news if they are. It saddened me when Johnny Ramone died...

And I hope I won't have to be sad when Jason Becker dies... he's slowly getting better...

If you don't know of him, go check out his website: The guy is honestly like, a god, both as a guitarist and as a person.

I subscribe to Celebrity Death Beeper. I get emails when a well known person departs this plane.

Tonight, I totally freaked when I got an email from them that said "Steve Howe dies in truck accident".

I thought they were referring to the insanely talented, profoundly strange looking guitarist from Yes. As it turns out, it was the disgraced addict baseball pitcher.

It isn't good when anyone dies, but does it make me a horrible person if I say that I'm really glad it wasn't the more talented Steve Howe that died?

I can't believe no local has mentioned the death of Benny Krass, of Krass Bros fame. It's nearly two years now.

Never met Benny, he was strictly a UHF celebrity. Like the chick with huge boobs selling clear plastic slip covers from U&I Decorators.
Everything is interesting... look closer.

John Spencer, when he passed away that was very sad indeed.

Frank Zappa, knew it was coming, but still was gutted beyond belief.

JImmy Doohan and Michael Piller. I'm a huge Trekkie and their deaths really hit me.

1) Carroll O'Connor -- Archie Bunker to the classic T.V. fans our there.

2) Elizabeth Montgomery -- I grew up watching "Bewitched". So sad to hear she died of cancer. She didn't go to the MD until it had really spread.

Stevie Ray Vaughan. He played in my town the summer before he passed for the In Step tour. I passed on the show thinking he'd play again.

Vince Welnick, the last keyboard player for the Grateful Dead, died yesterday. Bummer.
