I'm close to musically illiterate, so I've never heard of the Everly brothers

If you?ve seen Every Which Way But Loose you?ve see Phil Everly as a nightclub singer.

Thanks to the Eastwood challenge a number of years ago, I've seen all of Eastwood's films from the Dollars trilogy on, so I guess I HAVE seen an Everly brother then! :)

Ed Asner has died at 91. I've liked him in The Mary Tyler Moore Show since I was a kid, and of course he voiced the lead in Up in 2009.

Actor Dean Stockwell died at 85. I watched Quantum Leap when I was a kid and always liked him a lot in that. It was years later before I learned that he'd been a child actor.

Sidney Poitier has died at 94. I love In the Heat of the Night. I think I was in high school the first time I saw it, and I've watched it several times over the years.

Great actor  I first saw him in Blackboard Jungle and then later he was fantastic in The Defiant Ones..
I also enjoyed his performances in Guess Who?s Coming to Dinner and In the Heat of the night

News of another surprising death broke yesterday with Bob Saget. I can remember watching both Full House and America's Funniest Home Videos, which he hosted for many years. He was 65 years old.

Peter Bogdanovich died last week at the age of 82. I saw the news pretty early, but it seemed to be shuffled for a bit as other celebrity deaths were hitting the news. I've seen a few of his movies, like Targets and The Last Picture Show, as well as the Tom Petty documentary Runnin' Down a Dream.

I always loved Targets.  I saw it very young and it made quite an impression on me.
