I would like to read this book too. Thank you for telling us about it,Tang Lung.

Schechter may not have been a celebrity in the usual sense of the word but he was a brave man.

May he rest in peace.

Schechter's story isn't an entire book, but as mentioned in the obit, it was published in the book Chicken Soup for the Veteran's Soul. (And I was the one who posted the Schechter obit. ;) )

James Avery, who played Uncle Phil on The Fresh Prince of Bel Air, died at age 65. http://tvline.com/2014/01/01/james-avery-dead-at-65-fresh-prince-of-bel-air/  I used to watch Fresh Prince a long time ago, but I learned from this news story that he did the voice of Shredder on The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles as well. I had no idea.

I remember seeing him in 1985's Fletch starring Chevy Chase.  He played General K'Vagh in a couple of episodes of Star Trek: Enterprise in 2005; "Divergence" and "Affliction".  Fresh Prince of Bel-Air was a funny show and I thought Mr. Avery fit very well in that comedy.



R.I.P. Mr. Avery

When I consider that I've lost 4 people in 2013, and a couple were very young, I am not surprised anymore.

RIP, James Avery!

Phil appeared in Eastwood's comedy Every Which Way But Loose and credited with songs it's soundtrack as well as the sequel, Any Which Way You Can.



R.I.P. Mr. Everly

Phil appeared in Eastwood's comedy Every Which Way But Loose and credited with songs it's soundtrack as well as the sequel, Any Which Way You Can.

I had forgotten that, if I ever knew it. From IMDb's soundtrack listing for Every Which Way but Loose:

Quote
Don't Say You Don't Love Me No More
Written by Phil Everly (as P. Everly) and J. Paige
Sung by Sondra Locke and Phil Everly

... and another Sondra Locke favorite, "One Too Many Women in Your Life," from Any Which Way You Can, was "Written by John Durrill (as J. Durrill) and Phil Everly (as P. Everly)."

Everly was uncredited for his on-screen appearance with Locke in Every Which Way but Loose, but, again according to the IMDb, it was his only appearance in a feature film.

I heard an interesting comment by his brother, Don Everly, on the radio ... as reported on People.com:

Quote
"I was listening to one of my favorite songs that Phil wrote and had an extreme emotional moment just before I got the news of his passing," he said. "I took that as a special spiritual message from Phil saying good-bye."

I didn't recognize the name when I heard that he'd passed, but I do know those songs. Definitely some good songs they sang!

Thanks for sharing Don's quote, KC.  Yeah, Christopher, I remember having a Time/Life compilation of theirs on cassette and nearly wore it out.  The Everly Brothers were a fantastic duet, my favorite alongside The Judds.

Roger Lloyd-Pack,  Trigger in Only Fools and Horses and Owen in The Vicar of Dibley, has died.

Those of you who have seen both those UK series will remember what a brilliant actor he was.  He also appeared in Harry Potter.

RIP Roger.

Gilligan's Island
was a favourite of mine and I always thought "the Professor" was really cool.

 Great loss again! So sad!! :'(

 " Claudio Abbado, an Italian Conductor With a Global Reach, Is Dead at 80 "

 http://www.nytimes.com/2014/01/21/arts/music/claudio-abbado-italian-conductor-dies-at-80.html?hpw&rref=obituaries

 
Quote
Claudio Abbado, a conductor whose refined interpretations of a large symphonic and operatic repertory won him the directorships of several of the world’s most revered musical institutions — including La Scala, the London Symphony Orchestra, the Vienna State Opera and the Berlin Philharmonic — died on Monday at his home in Bologna, Italy. He was 80.

 

 Rest in peace, Mr. Abbado.
