RIP TV show creator dude

http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/new...redirect=false

Quote:
Glen A. Larson, the wildly successful television writer-producer whose enviable track record includes Quincy M.E., Magnum, P.I., Battlestar Galactica, Knight Rider and The Fall Guy, has died. He was 77.

Larson, a singer in the 1950s clean-cut pop group The Four Preps who went on to compose many of the theme songs for his TV shows, died Friday night of esophageal cancer at UCLA Medical Center in Santa Monica, his son, James, told The Hollywood Reporter.

Larson also wrote and produced for such noteworthy series as ABC’s It Takes a Thief, starring his fellow Hollywood High School alum Robert Wagner as a burglar now stealing for the U.S. government, and NBC’s McCloud, with Dennis Weaver as a sheriff from Taos, N.M., who moves to Manhattan to help the big-city cops there.

I didn't know about or didn't remember this thread when I posted the KFC guy's RIP.

Just a note, Glen A. Larson was Mormon and there are subplots in BG that peak Mormon's interest.

Harmon, the KFC guy was also Mormon. He donated the money to build a building on BYU's campus dedicated to his Aunt, who raised him. His mother died 2 days after Harmon was born and his father married his brother's (the father's brother so Harmon's Uncle's) widow. His father died a few years later, so he was raised by his aunt.

Rolling Stones Saxophonist Bobby Keys Dead at 70

Quote:
Bobby Keys, longtime saxophonist for The Rolling Stones, has died. Michael Webb, keyboardist for Bobby Keys and the Suffering Bastards, confirmed Keys' death with the Scene, saying the legendary musician had been battling cirrhosis and passed away at his home in Franklin early this morning. He was 70 years old.

A Texas native who’d lived in Middle Tennessee since the early ’90s, in addition to his 40-plus-year tenure with The Rolling Stones, Keys appeared on legendary recordings by John Lennon, Joe Cocker, Barbra Streisand, B.B. King, Carly Simon, Lynyrd Skynyrd and others. More details to come.
love his solo in Can't You Hear Me Knocking

Why not just RIP the estimated 108-ish billion people who have ever lived?

RIP Big Chief Bo Dollis

http://www.nola.com/music/index.ssf/...ontinue_f.html

Quote:
Bo Dollis, Jr. has sung for his father's spirit every night since the older man's death. The pioneering Mardi Gras Indian leader, who had masked as Big Chief of the Wild Magnolias since 1964, died at home on the morning of Tuesday (Jan. 20), just under a week after his 71st birthday. That evening, Gerard "Bo Jr." Dollis and his mother Rita, the Wild Magnolias' Big Queen, were joined at the Sportsman's Corner bar on 2nd and Dryades streets — the Indian gang's longtime home base — by a crowd of Mardi Gras Indians, fans and supporters to shout and dance in celebration of Bo Dollis, Sr.'s life.
And yes, obviously this guy was well-known in New Orleans

Default It's her funeral and you can cry if you want to

I thought about starting a new thread with this posts title as the thread title but decided against it.

RIP Leslie Gore famous for singing "It's My Party"
