Dang it. The icons of our youth continue to die off. I might be next. :(

This last few years have seen a number of famous film folks fall fatal. (un)Fortunately there are few film folks these day which inspire us the same way.

I met Barbara in 1988 at a dinner where my band played. She was a nice lady.
