Luke Askew, a character actor perhaps best remembered as the wayward stranger who brings Peter Fonda and Dennis Hopper to a hippie commune in the 1969 motorcycle odyssey “Easy Rider,” died on March 29 at his home in Lake Oswego, Ore. He was 80.

I'll always remember him as the hard nosed guard in Cool Hand Luke.

Australian Olympic champion swimmer Murray Rose has passed away.

Quote
The dual Olympian will be remembered for his historic display at the 1956 Games in Melbourne, where he won three gold medals. He went on to win gold, silver and a bronze at the 1960 Rome Olympics.

RIP Murray Rose. 

I remember his swimming days.

I was interested to see that Dawn Fraser spoke about him.  They were both heroes of mine when I was young.

RIP Dick Clark

I met Dick once at a recording of American Bandstand... A lovely guy, very friendly, answered my questions about
some of the greats that had appeared on his show over the years. Sad to hear of his passing, one of those people
You thought would go on forever..

Greg Ham found dead in house


Quote
Men at Work flautist Greg Ham has been found dead in a house in Melbourne’s inner north.

Police were called to the house in Canning Street, North Carlton, soon after midday and are trying to determine the cause of the man's death.

The body was found by a friend after he went to the house to check on the man's welfare and there was no answer at the door. He then returned with another friend and found the body in the front of the house.

Aged 91 Bert Weedon has died.

He was an amazing guitarist.  Lots of people learned  to play from his books.

Here 's a link to his Guitar Boogie Shuffle.

RIP Bert.

I just saw that Jonathan Frid, the guy who played Barnabas Collins on Dark Shadows, died a few days ago at 87. I've never seen the show but remember it coming on Sci-Fi channel several years back. And certainly it's getting more attention in the media now with the new movie set to come out in a few weeks (Frid has a cameo in it too).

Sad news about Bert Lin.. Your right, just about every rock guitarist in the UK owes Bert a debt, probably started
off with one of his books as well.

R.I.P Bert, another superb musician lost to us..

Barnabas can't be dead--Vampires don't die!
