He was friends with Chris Cornell...and today would have been Cornell's 53rd birthday Wow

I was pretty bummed to hear about this. I listened to a lot of their music in my 20's, and even though I got away from them with their last couple albums, their older stuff is always in my rotation. I always thought he had one of the best rock voices out there.

I saw LP live at UIC Pavilion when they toured behind their debut. I remember thinking that there was no way that scrawny guy could pull off all of those screams for a full show, the go back and forth between the screams and clean singing. I was wrong.

Yeah, it was something to be able to go back and forth like that. I always wanted to see them in concert. I still search for their performances on TV, and will continue to do so.

I can't imagine the stuff that goes on to lead people to make decisions like this
he had a very troubled past.

was a heavy acid user, drank quite alot, failed marriage, second wife wasnt chilling with him.

he has always said that the music was the only thing left and their last album was pretty much derided by everyone. But if you looked at hte track, alot of the songs all relate to some really dark struggles.

it's a shame, an incredibly talented singer and performer. rip
Red West. Actor, karate instructor, and BFF of Elvis, until he commented that maybe Elvis ought to put down that sandwich.

If not for this forum, I might have missed this, Sunny! Wink

We have serior staff in the White House concerned their complete dysfunction is not yet completely to the standards of a Banana Republic grabbing all the headlines. It's a real team effort to say the least!

Thanks for posting Sunny
As a Spartan I remember this well. Went to game
The 1966 Notre Dame vs. Michigan State football game is considered one of the greatest and most controversial games in college football history played between Michigan State and Notre Dame.[1] The game was played in Michigan State's Spartan Stadium on November 19, 1966. Michigan State entered the contest 9–0 and ranked No. 2, while Notre Dame entered 8–0 and ranked #1. Notre Dame elected not to try for a score on the final series; thus, the game ended in a 10–10 tie.
Robert Hardy - I will always remember him as Siegfried Farnon and Churchill but most on this side of the pond will remember him as Minister of Magic Cornelius Fudge from Harry Potter.

A superb actor.
Sad to hear of the passing of Goldy McJohn on August 1st. Keyboardist for Steppenwolf and a fellow Canadian. (Most of the founders of Steppenwolf were from Toronto. They started in Yorkville as The Sparrow, and changed their name when John Kay - who is NOT Canadian- joined.)

Impossible to overstate Goldy's place as one of the masters of the B3 organ and Leslie speaker. His B3 playing was such an integral part of their sound. The obvious track to listen to is Born to be Wild with his swirling, driving organ sound, but he shapes the sound on nearly all of their tracks.
Don Baylor...another former Oriole. Finished his career with 338 home runs and 285 stolen bases. Also played with the Athletics, Angels, Yankees, Red Sox, Twin and back to the Athletics.
In 1979 had 36 home runs and 139 RBIs, with 186 hits. Batted .296. He won the MVP award that year.
68 years old.

Glenn Campbell, in honor of his passing, I will retire this moniker. RIP. I will always remember your music and your role with John Wayne in True Grit.

Legendary Arkansas football coach Frank Broyles. I still enjoy going back and watching some of the classic Texas-Arkansas games when he and Coach Royal would match wits. RIP
