John Wetton, vocalist and bass guitar extraordinaire, has passed away from cancer at the age of 67.

He was the lead singer for Asia ("Heat of the Moment," etc.), and also did work with King Crimson, U.K., and other British progressive rock artists. RIP

He looks exhausted and greets the other crew members who are also weary from the day's events but are very happy to see him back.

After a couple of laughs and what appears to be a very hungry John stuffing food in his mouth, suddenly erupts into him vibrating into a fit of spasms. The crew members scramble to hold down his convulsing body on the dining table before all are sprayed with a shower of blood and guts as a small alien creature, with sharp teeth, exits john's abdomen then quickly slithers away, leaving everyone shocked.
I just read something about that scene- apparently, the other cast members in that scene, HAD NO FREAKIN' IDEA WHAT WAS GOING TO HAPPEN. Ridley Scott wanted their reactions to be "authentic." Yaphet Koto lost his damn mind and didn't leave his trailer for a while afterwards.

Clyde Stubblefield, drummer for James Brown, died at 73. One of his drumbeats became perhaps the most sampled beat in history, and was used by many rap artists. He was one funky dude. RIP

Chuck Barris, creator of The Dating Game, The Newlywed Game, and the Gong Show died at the age of 87.

I can't help but remember when watching him host the Gong Show that I thought he looked and acted perpetually stoned out of his mind. LOL.

5. John Geils, of J. Geils band fame, is dead at 71

Guitarist John Warrant Geils Jr., guitarist and namsake of the J. Geils Band, was found dead at his home in Groton, Massachusetts, on Tuesday afternoon. Police say he likely died of natural causes. The J. Geils Band formed in 1967, after bringing lead singer Peter Wolf into an earlier incarnation of the band, and released its first album in 1970. After heavy touring in the '70s along side bands like The Byrds and The Allman Brothers, the J. Geils Band scored a No. 1 record with 1981's Freeze Frame, featuring the single "Centerfold," which spent six weeks at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100. The band broke up in 1985 but reunited several times, notably for a 2010 concert in Fenway Park with fellow Boston band Aerosmith. When he wasn't playing, Geils raced and restored old cars and motorcycles.

I don"t believe I saw anyone post about this sad incident about Mike Hall, a 35 year old, world renowned endurance cyclist, and World Record holder at circumnavigating the globe on bicycle in 92 days, and Transamerican race champion, died by a collision with a motor vehicle during the Indian Pacific Wheel Race, a 2 week, unsupported race across Australia. Riders have to camp or sleep wherever possible but there is no team support. He was in second place.

I hadn't heard of him solely because I don't keep up with learning all the global cyclists names, there are so many good cyclists that really do a great job representing the sport, and there are many awesome personal cyclist stories to learn about online.
There are many very positive videos I saw today, about Mike Hall, from his close friends and from fans, that highlight the compassion we can have for one another.

There are several other moving videos on YT in memory of him that can be found.

David Letterman's mother died at 91. One of the great Olympic games reporters ever! And a damn great cook.

I saw Michael Hall in the documentary Inspired to Ride. Great documentary of cyclists crossing the US. I believe he won and broke a record.

Hall was amazing in that documentary. He seemed to be super human but very humble. As far as I can remember, anyone could participate in that race. The other cyclists who accepted the journey were also very interesting people. The film was a combination of heartbreak, misery, determination, and finally, triumph.

Hope your finger heals quick.

She was my age when she died, which can't help but reinforce my mortality somehow.

I really disliked how the media first announced her death with implications that it was due solely to drugs and her "trailer park" living situation. They really made her out to be a total waste of humanity. A day later and the same media says her death was due to stage 4 cancer. Wow.

Sure, it was known that she had a drug problem in her past, but slamming her was just so distasteful. RIP Joni.

Unfortunately we live in a time when there are way to many news outlets competing for advertiser money. They have to sensationalize everything to get people to watch them over every other outlet to get those advertisers. That's the root of almost all of the discord in our country today.

Default Official RIP (insert name here) thread.

Most all of us did (and still do) things that will ultimately hasten our demise. Maybe it's a good thing that I'm not "notable" enough for the media to care nor the scandal-hungry public to lap it up. It's one of only a few perks that a working man has.
