Does he have a couple of three-ways in it like he did in his last film?

RIP Barrie Masters - 63

 

Barrie was a rock 'n roller to the core.  They never hit big in the US but that didn't stop him from touring the States relentlessly in his later years.  He and the current group of Eddie & The Hot Rods would blow into town, always playing the dive-iest of the few remaining SF punk clubs and tear things up.

Any places I'd know from the 80s?

Horrible.  As much as I love Pixies I still think they did her wrong.

Diahann Carroll has died at age 84
 

Quote

Diahann Carroll, the captivating singer and actress who came from the Bronx to win a Tony Award, receive an Oscar nomination and make television history with her turns on Julia and Dynasty, died Friday. She was 84.

Carroll died at her home in Los Angeles after a long bout with cancer, her daughter, producer-journalist Suzanne Kay, told The Hollywood Reporter.

Carroll was known as a Las Vegas and nightclub performer and for her performances on Broadway and in the Hollywood musicals Carmen Jones and Porgy & Bess when she was approached by an NBC executive to star as Julia Baker, a widowed nurse raising a young son, on the comedy Julia.

She, Joan Collins and Linda Evans were some MILFy trio back in the days of Dynasty.

I can't see Linda Evans and not think about her playing a hooker in Mitchell (an all-time MST3k classic).

Beautiful & substantial & sweet - really the first black woman my generation could see as just another person. Somebody's wife, mom, neighbor, boss. That's probably a hella bigger achievement than she gets credit for. I salute you, Miss Carroll. RIP -

Yeah. A very beautiful woman who actually had to be talked into doing Diana and was IIRC considered "too glamourous" for such a role.

it was Bardot........................................................................................................and everybody else for me. I liked Honey West and Ann Margret and Fonda and Welch, but i knew Brigitte was all about the secks before i even knew what the secks was. When i was 4, we lived in a married students dorm at UVM and, all summer, a neighbor girl named Sara Jane (she's a physician not 10 minutes from there these days) used to drag me to the gardener's shed, tear me down to the nekkids and rub up on and squish me. I just knew that Miss Bardot also dragged & tore & rubbed & squished boys and liked it very much and was very good at it, and i didn't actually sense that w anybody else............cept maybe Don Knotts.

I used to watch old foreign movies with the sound off just to look at Brigitte Bardot. 

But as usual, your story is much better.

Well, damn.

I was in 2nd-3rd grade when Julia was on, and my 2nd grade teacher looked just like Carroll - in my mind, anyway. In retrospect my teacher was probably 8 or 10 years younger and I doubt she really looked like Diahann. But she was the first black woman I "knew" who wasn't in a then-traditional role (my school system had only recently fully desegregated when I entered it & there weren't a lot of professional roles for black women). So, my 7 year-old pea brain conflated these two women to the point where I hollered out "Julia!" to my teacher when I was excited to answer one of her questions. I'll never forget how she looked at me and said "Billy, why did you call me Julia?". I didn't realize why she was asking me that then, but I know to this day I was afraid that I had done something wrong. I flashed back to it several years later and wanted to crawl into a hole when I realized what she must have been thinking. I don't think I ever did know that teacher's first name.

Cream has a really weird legacy. Many hip rock critics of the time used them as a low bar when reviewing other bands. Then, I can recall in the '70s & '80s that they were in the pantheon of great Boomer bands. Then, they weren't..... then they were, etc.....

I think, now with 50 years of hindsight and listening to their records, they were more influential than they were good. All three were insanely talented but their albums were wildly uneven (probably not the band's fault, but they are saddled with it). The 6 or 8 radio hits they had are, by far, their best. 

And some of their influence was done much better by acts that directly followed them (Hendrix, Allmans).

Agree 100% here. Their albums were a bit uneven - Disraeli Gears was the closest to hitting on all cylinders, but even that one had a bit of filler. Where Ginger and his cohorts were at their best is live, when they could stretch out and embrace the incredible chemistry, without the shackles of having to fill a pop album.Their live performance at Royal Album Hall in 1968 is a great example (it’s on YouTube).

But I digress - RIP again to one of the great rock drummers of all time.

Read some stuff over the weekend on him.  many tributes to Ginger Baker the drummer, not many to Ginger Baker the human being.   Not a very likable guy apparently.
