Didn't realize he was ill.

So pivotal to the greatness of Dave's show. The showbiz stories stuff was always primo but I also liked things like his part in the classic World Series of Dice sketch, where he calmly shrugged his shoulders and shot Leonard Washington in the leg to take his bankroll from him.

Of course Happy Days is the most famous role, but she did also turn up in notorious and weird Roger Corman-produced Galaxy of Terror (NSFW) in the early 1980s too (part of that run of films reusing the Battle Beyond The Stars stock footage, thereby melding Star Wars and Alien influences together!) as a member of the crew plagued by hallucinations of their deepest fears and then as one of the returned zombies throwing the last survivor around at the climax!

Daliah Lavi

Like the press has noted, she's probably best known for being in Casino Royale and The Silencers. But I think her part in Bava's The Whip and the Body is her most noteworthy.

Jesus, he must've been barely 40. I know it happens - Martin Sheen had a heart attack even before then - but still you don't expect a stroke that young from someone who doesn't look like he's in bad shape.

Was looking forward to seeing them live at Primavera Sound four weeks from now. Will be an unusual gig, if they don't cancel it.
