Best thing QT ever did was bring this old soul into public consciousness. I had loved him in my favorite TV show that didn't make it, Karen Sisco (w the scrumtrulescent Carla Gugino) and his true but heavy heart kep' a lotta #### real after his renaissance. We're running out of real guys here. RIP -

First Rip Torn and now Rip Taylor. R.I.P. to both Rips.

These usually come in threes.  I hope Rip Hamilton is doing ok.

That '99 UCONN team is immortal. I wouldn't worry.

Though I agree, the clothing of the 1980s really did not do the female figure any favors.

One of my favorite Forster roles is in Alligator, a 1980 low budget horror movie about giant alligator who terrorizes the Chicago sewers.  Forster plays a world-weary (what else) detective who deadpans his way through the film.  It has a great cast including Henry Silva, Academy Award winner Dean Jagger, the guy who played Frank Pentangeli, Jack Carter as the Mayor and Kubrick's Lolita Sue Lyon in her last credited role.

There's a low res but watchable print on YouTube.  Roger Ebert only gave it one star but he's dead and wrong.

Didn't John Sayles  - Matewan, Brother from Another Planet, Lone Star, Sunshine State, Secret of  Roan Inish, among others - write the script for this?

Yes.  Sayles also wrote The Howling, which after re-watching Alligator is a better film.

From the moment he found Zero Mostel "incredibly guilty" in The Producers, Wolf Garber (honest) was an MVP of comedy bit play. Gorgeous turns in My Favorite Year, The Late Show, The Jerk, Serial and countless TV shows. Always cantankerously sympathetic (a tough combo), always brought it down to cases. RIP -

Nick Tosches, inimitable writer and critic dead at 69.  His biographies of Jerry Lee Lewis, Dean Martin and Sonny Liston are essential.

Here's a brief video snippet of Tosches and Anthony Bourdain being crotchety and talking about the good old days.  They're all gone now.:banned: 

Awwww.  Will pull out my Nick Tosches Reader later today in tribute.  There's no way I'm watching that video link; would make me too sad.

Awwww, maaaan. One of the rarest skills in music - the fills guy. Melodically, other than George Harrison, i can't think of one better.

I had the great fortune to be witness to a couple of cycles of the Feat's process. Lowell would descend, fat & happy, from his ranch in the Tehachapis, they'd rehearse a coupla wks, tour for 12-13, then record for 3-4more and George - who never appeared to sleep the entire time and was now 180lbs instead of 280 - would head back to the hills. The process is why his heart came to blow up @ 34yo from all the speedballs, his favorite fruit.

But, o, what a caravan was led in the time between. Truly like running away and joining the circus. Once Little Feat were headliners, mgmt paid for friends, players, campfollowers to keep Lowell entertained, because he wanted to jam, talk, fly 24/7 and it was wearing the band out. I was in tour mgmt before the paid entourage, so the job was collecting musicians who checked & sat in and keeping em til the next set came along. Baby Buddha that Lowell was, a lot of folks checked in.

More than the rest of em, Paul was always there when Lowell was close to the essence. I watched with Paul as George would smilethink for a while and pull notions str8 out of the ether, make sumn soar and invite everybody along. In the course of a jam, you don't pay attention to who's doing the real work. But Baby Buddha would get the inspirations, Billy Payne - as brilliant a jackhole as you ever wanna meet - would attach some contrary musicology to it but, by the time it got to the stage, it would somehow all make sense and that part was 90% Paul. He was the electrician, made all the connections so that the polar opposites of George & Payne would sound like an organic piece. Powerful intelligence & care right there. Thank you for that, old friend. RIP -

Twenty years ago or so, he used to regularly call into a local disc-jockey and he would be on the air for two hours, answering any and all questions with braggadocio and self promotion. 

He was so upfront about it all that it came off as a humorous and even endearing kind of shtick. 

The only time he seemed to get serious and admit weakness was when he talked about Ali MacGraw and how she left him for Steve McQueen when they were filming The Getaway. 

He said that was the beginning of his tailspin.

I got to know one of em, Miss McGraw, when she moved to Santa Fe and our social Venn Diagrams slivered a little (i've told the story of our 1st meeting here before). McQueen (who she left Evans hi&dri for) was her great love but Evans was still her MVP - the one she'd call whenever - more than 20 yrs after throwing him over. Maybe it's cuz they had a kid, but that's still UnHollywoodish loyalty.

Spoon and George Wallace are the last great "you got a job? i'll take the job and thank you for it, no matter what kinda peckowood you are" comics in a world that mostly dont operate that way anymore and, therefore, became the conscience for a lot of otherwise-spoiled comics. Thank God for that, and for Spoon, bringin' joy. RIP -

He was on the very first season at the age of 72. That was 19 years ago, so.........
