I was saddened to hear this. It sounded like it was coming a few weeks ago when news broke of his illness.

Sorry to hear it too. Six months ago, I probably would've forgotten his name, but it is in my head because I was watching all the Fridas a couple months ago and watched his commentary to #7 and then decided to check out his work in Prison.

Tonight, bass trombonist Phil Teele passed. He was a mainstay in the Hollywood studio community for 6 decades and was a total original as a musician and person.

https://www.nytimes.com/2019/03/23/o...itan-dead.html

Rafi Eitan, the canny Israeli spymaster who commanded the Nazi-hunting team that captured Adolf Eichmann in Argentina and many years later was unmasked as the handler of Jonathan Jay Pollard, the American Navy intelligence analyst who pleaded guilty to passing on more than 1,000 secret documents to the Israelis, died on Saturday in Tel Aviv. He was 92.

The death was confirmed by the Ichilov Medical Center, where Mr. Eitan had been hospitalized, Israeli news organizations said. In a statement, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu called Mr. Eitan “among the heroes of the intelligence services of the State of Israel.”

We’ve learned the sad news this morning that legendary filmmaker Larry Cohen has passed away at 77 this weekend. Cohen, officially dubbed a Master of Horror when he was invited to direct an episode of the “Masters of Horror” anthology series back in 2006, wrote/directed cult films It’s Alive, It Lives Again, Special Effects, The Stuff and A Return to Salem’s Lot.

RIP!!! Q is a great film, and God Told Me To is a precedent film. Ironically and sadly this was also around the time on that documentary on him was released.

I just finished watching his It's Alive trilogy a couple months ago, which were fun. Will be missed.

Cohen did a lot more than that. He was a boy wonder who created the television series Branded at 24, Blue Light at 25, and Custer, Coronet Blue and The Invaders at 26. He broke in as a television writer with the Kraft Theatre series at 17.

Scott Walker, RIP. He was a terrific singer. Roy Clark, Hal Blaine and Walker dying in a short window of time marks the passing of an era when talent was what mattered in the recording industry.
