I don't really have much to add other than EVH was one of my heroes and I learned a ton of his songs on guitar. Some of those riffs are so badass to play.

Best ever distorted guitar tone.
Amazing creativity and technique with the tapping stuff.
He forever changed how the guitar is played and it can't be overstated what he did for the instrument.

As far as guitar legends go its Hendrix and EVH as the 1) and 1A) and then everyone else.

And I got to see the band at what ended up being their last ever show. It was the reunion tour with David Lee Roth back in 2015 at the Hollywood Bowl. David Lee Roth's singing was terrible but Eddie, Wolfgang, and Alex were locked in. Alex especially surprised me. He's a great drummer.

Damn, that's nuts. Not a huge VH fan either but he was always amazing on the guitar.

They just keep coming: Johnny Nash has passed, at 80 years of age.

I can't believe I'm the one posting this, but Izumi Matsumoto, creator the Kimagure Orange Road manga died 2 days ago at age 61. It was never one of my favorites back in the day (cute, but a very distant second to Maison Ikkoku) but it has been in my queue to give an other go since the BD was released.

Anthony Chisholm, 77. Broadway, TV and film actor of considerable acclaim, but I knew him from HBO's Oz as gang boss Burr Redding. Even if you don't remember his character's name (I didn't! blurs together a bit, does later Oz for me), you'll almost certainly remember this scene opposite poor Method Man. Blimey that was hardcore. :shock:

Actually, now I think about it, I wonder if Boardwalk Empire deliberately reprised it with Chalky White slapping on the Giallo gloves and choking the living dogshit outta that Italian thug. Hmm.

James Randi, stage magician whose claim to fame is debunking claims of actual magic and pseudosciene.
Incredibly cool guy, but at an age of 92 I guess he had a good run.

Sad to hear, but yeah, that's a good long run. He was still in fine form a couple years back, from what I recall. Some classic material came out of his TV appearances, like his PWNing of Bowl Cut Monk and his paper-levitating antics.

If you've not seen it, check out An Honest Liar

I can't help but think of Randi and not think of the supernatural and unexplained phenomena so prevalent in 80's media. Time-Life books Mysteries of the Unknown Series

Totally forgot he worked onstage with Alice Cooper! Thanks, on this weekend's watch list. :smile:

It's a personal testament to him that, despite how many Bonds there have been over the years, whenever I do a bad/cheesy James Bond voice (even while watching one of the Bond movies with another actor featured) it's always him that I imitate.

I know in real life they were not frenemies but feels quite eerie that he died so close to Sean Connery. Surely they could get this into SNL next week.

I actually saw a skit on SNL the other day that quite eerily predicted it.

Patrick Quinn, co-creator of the Ice Bucket Challenge. He was 37. Damn, that's pretty young.

Maradona just died from a heart failure. A life full of addictions finally got him.

it's kinda sad to know his family and friends were planning to change that shitty lifestyle of him after he went through surgery a few weeks ago.

He's also the trainer who helped skinny actor Christopher Reeve get yoked for the role of Superman.
