Really sad to hear of the passing of Trevor Bolder.. David Bowie's original bass player in The Spiders from Mars..
Only in his early 60's, a fantastic musician and played on many of Bowie's greatest records..



R.I.P Trevor...

I was so sorry to learn of James Gandolfini's death. 51 is so young.

He was fantastic in The Sopranos.





RIP James.

R.I.P Mr Gandolfini.

I have always found him great in "The Barber", by the Coen Brothers.



So young to die ...

Wow, 51.  Same age as my brother.  Damn.  Rest in peace, Mr. Gandolfini.

Rest in peace, Mr. Matheson.  May God be with you both.  :angel:

"I am Legend" : very big shock when I was 15 ... The best science fiction novel ever read.
 Here, my own French edition, from 1977.


R.I.P Mr Matheson.

I've seen the three different film versions of I Am Legend but have never read the book.  But I like his writing style, based on a collection of short stories I have of his. I would think What Dreams May Come would be a fascinating read. He's always been a writer I wanted to read more of. RIP.

So many people have passed away since I've been gone--I knew about Gandolfini, but I didn't know about the others. (Oh, no, not Jim Kelly!  :'(    )

RIP

Elmore Leonard, the great crime novelist, died on Tuesday at the age of 87.

http://www.nytimes.com/2013/08/21/books/elmore-leonard-master-of-crime-fiction-dies-at-87.html?pagewanted=all

At the beginning of his writing career, Leonard's specialty was Westerns. His best-known Western short story, 3:10 to Yuma, was twice adapted as a film, but Clint Eastwood fans will also recall him as the author of the screenplay of Joe Kidd.

Here's an appreciation by New York Times book reviewer (and former film critic) Janet Maslin:

R.I.P. Elmore Leonard.

I've read a lot of his books, and there was a time when I devoured them one after another. Then the day came when I couldn't force myself to read another. I tried, and would give up a couple chapters in. Still, I have fond feelings toward those books I read and the joy they brought, and of course he's the writer of Rum Punch, which was made into one of my very favorite movies, Jackie Brown.
