Gee, I thought it was Chuck Berry :)
In music circles there's an apocryphal story of a photo existing taken backstage at some Rock n' Roll multi-band concert. In said photo Jerry Lee has a pistol pointed at Chuck while Berry is supposed to have a straight razor to the other mans neck. Don't know if it's true BUT I've heard the tale many times from folks who should know. Still, he was there near the start. Isn't Fat's Domino still with us?

British actor of both the big & small screen, Leslie Phillips, has finally passed on at the ripe old age of 98. Ding Dong !

Leo Gallagher, best known as simply "Gallagher" and for his unique brand of stand-up humor that included the slaughter of innocent watermelons with a home-made device he dubbed the "Sledge-O-Matic", died in Palm Springs this morning at the age of 76. Gallagher had been experiencing declining health in recent years after a couple of "mild to serious" heart attacks, and was under hospice care at home.

That's too bad. Boy, he was hotter than lava in the 80s.

Voice actor Kevin Conroy, who for many of us will always be the definitive Batman!

I never liked D.C. To me they were the "Yankees" of comicdom. I was always a Marvel Man... until I began watching "Batman- The Animated Series". As stated by many, Kevin Conroy IS the voice of the Caped Crusader from now till the earth falls off its axis. He's the only reason why I EVER viewed anything in the DCEU. He'll be sorely missed by me and millions. Hell, it's been a bad week all round.
