^^^Yes, a very nice tribute to Mr. Stanton.  Thanks for sharing.  Coincidentally, Stanton is the name on the one next to the "Unknown" marker where Blondie and Tuco locate the gold at the finale of The Good, The Bad & The Ugly. 

Both markers can be seen in this image from the movie.



This appears to be a more recent image but I am unsure if they are the same ones as those in the film.

Shocked and saddened to hear about Tom Petty. Just a few weeks ago I watched the four hour documentary about his band called Runnin' Down a Dream. When I was a kid, he had some huge hits with "Mary Jane's Last Dance" (the music video of this one disturbed me!) and "You Don't Know How it Feels."

Tom Petty hospitalized, but no official confirmation of his death despite widespread reports
I've seen that report too. Hopefully it turns out that Tom doesn't belong in this thread just yet.

R.I.P.

An all-around sad day in America. :(

Tom Petty was one of my favorites going back to the late 70's. I saw him in '83, and almost went to see him again about 3 months ago in Nashville. Although I didn't make it to his last tour, friends who went said he still rocked the house down.

R.I.P. Tom.

Roy Dotrice has died at the age of 94. His name isn't exactly a household word, but he was a versatile and prolific character actor, and you may recognize his face:



Since it's baseball playoff season, I can't resist quoting this anecdote from his New York Times obituary about the time Dotrice was the pitcher on a team that included Laurence Olivier at third base and Peter O'Toole at shortstop ... with everyone in tights and puffy shirts:

Quote
Looking back on his career in an interview in 1980, Mr. Dotrice recalled one of his more unusual achievements: introducing baseball — learned from Canadian P.O.W.s during the war — to cricket-playing members of his Shakespeare troupe in 1959. He put together an “all-star” team to challenge Americans at a nearby air base.

“Paul Robeson played first base, Sam Wanamaker second and Laurence Olivier third,” he said. “Peter O’Toole was shortstop, Albert Finney was catcher, I pitched and Charles Laughton was umpire. We wore black tights and white Hamlet blouses. The women said, ‘Never mind the game, look at their legs.’”

He appeared in one brief, memorable scene with Clint in Any Which Way You Can.

Mel Tillis, who appeared in Every Which Way but Loose, has passed away at age 85:

Mel Tillis, Singer-Songwriter and Country Music Hall of Famer, Dies at 85

Quote
Tillis began recording in the late 1950s and continued to perform through 2015, but remained best known for a string of No. 1 country hits in the late ’70s, along with a succession of appearances in Hollywood movies alongside Burt Reynolds and Clint Eastwood that helped make him a household name even outside the country music sphere.

“Mel Tillis spent a lifetime giving us joy and laughter and music, which is why his death brings such sadness,” said Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum CEO Kyle Young. “Had he never stepped on a stage, he would still have been one of the funniest and most genuine people on the planet.”

“But his whimsy and warmth were only a part of his appeal. He wrote some of country music’s most compelling and consequential songs, he fronted a remarkable band, and he sang with power and emotion. He also shone as an inspiration, revealing what others called an impediment as a vehicle for humor and hope.”

I remember hearing about David Cassidy announcing that he had dementia earlier this year, and I thought how incredibly young for that diagnosis. It was sad to hear of his death.
