The French critic, filmmaker, and novelist Alexandre Astruc, an important influence on the New Wave and on the artistic innovations that defined American and European cinema in the 1960s and ’70s, died in Paris earlier today.

Alan Young, Two-Legged Star of 'Mister Ed,' Dies at 96

Ironically I was just watching some Ducktales related videos, and this happen. Wonder who they're gonna get to replace him on the upcoming Ducktales show, since he was voicing the character with that Scottish accent up until his death.

RIP!!

I didn't realize he was still alive. 96 is a pretty damn good run though.

BTW, I always thought the actress that played Wilbur's wife on Mr Ed was SMOKING hot for that (or any) time.

Former Megadeth drummer, Nick Menza, dies after collapsing during Los Angeles gig



Quote:
Nick Menza, a former drummer for the heavy metal band Megadeth, died at age 51 after collapsing on stage at a Los Angeles club late on Saturday, a family spokesman said on Sunday.

Menza collapsed while performing with his current band OHM at the Baked Potato club in Studio City, California, where he lived, said family spokesman J. Marshall Craig, who is also Menza's biographer.

The band had been performing its third song of the first set late on Saturday when Menza collapsed, Craig said. Audience members and friends tried to resuscitate him until medics arrived, but Menza died in an ambulance en route to a local hospital after 25 minutes of resuscitation attempts.

"Despite his excellent health and extremely active, sober lifestyle, a heart attack is his suspected, though not confirmed, cause of death," Craig said. An autopsy will be performed, he said.

Menza was the longest-serving drummer for Megadeth from 1989 to 1998, a period when the band was considered at its height, Craig said. He recorded drums and toured on the albums "Rust in Peace," "Countdown to Extinction," "Youthanasia" and "Cryptic Writings".

Menza was asked by Megadeth co-founder Dave Mustaine to join the band in 1989, after first playing live with the group the year before in Bradford, England, according to Menza's website.

Halfway through a 1998 tour, Menza discovered a tumor on his knee and was forced to leave for surgery. Megadeth hired a replacement and Menza was not asked back, the website said.

In an upcoming memoir, Menza has nothing but praise for his former bandmates, including Mustaine, and considered himself fortunate to have been a part of a legendary band, Craig said.

He had been playing in OHM, which included fellow Megadeth alumnus Chris Poland, for more than one year after various solo stints, Craig said.

Menza was also an accomplished artist and woodworker, and was set to unveil an art series in Houston next month.

My friends texted me about this a few hours ago. Really bummed. Megadeth was my favorite band through jr and sr high schools. The Rust In Peace lineup was the best they ever were. And he was only 9 years older than me. So sad.

You ain't kidding. Them opening drums in Rust in Peace...Polaris... ooh, I got chills when I first heard it, and I still get goosebumps whenever I play that track. A-mazing.

Bought Peace Sells when I was in Jr High when it came out and fell in love with them. So I was with them those albums leading up to Rust In Peace. Man, it blew me away jow much better that album was than the first three. So good.

Rust in Peace is my favorite album of theirs, right up there with Countdown to Extinction- my first love of Megadeth.

Dream Theater has been my favorite band for about 20 years, but Megadeth was my favorite band before that. And really, my first favorite band. Great times and great memories.

Why is God systematically destroying everyone and everything from my life that meant something to me?

We lost a good one today; a fellow soldier who shined brighter than his Zildjians. You will be missed, Nick Menza.

I'm not actually a Megadeath fan. I posted because I knew there were fans here. But, I have to say that dying on stage during a gig is a real rock-and-roll way to go. I've known some rockers and I bet if I asked them, most would say they'd want to go rocking out.

God, I haven't seen that show since I was a kid. My mom used to love it. Mel was hilarious.
