Anne Heche passed away. The last I heard, she was in stable condition, so this is certainly news to me. Apparently, Heche was declared brain-dead, but was being kept alive on a ventilator in order to donate her organs as she had requested. Heche was such a brilliant actress. I loved her in Cedar Rapids and Wag the Dog. She had so much talent. She was still pretty young, too, at only 53.

Bob Saget, Betty White, Sidney Poitier - it's like celebs are dropping like flies lately and that's after the coronavirus explosion at that.

I was really sad when Graeme Edge died last November. I saw him several times in concert, with the last time being just a couple years ago. It would have been lovely to see him again, my friend.

Late Lament

Breathe deep the gathering gloom
Watch lights fade from every room
Bedsitter people look back and lament
Another day's useless energy is spent
Impassioned lovers wrestle as one;
Lonely man cries for love and has none
New mother picks up and suckles her son
Senior citizens wish they were young
Cold-hearted orb that rules the night
Removes the colours from our sight
Red is grey is yellow white
But we decide which is right
And which is an illusion

Sad stuff for sure....but it's life.
We could start a thread celebrating older celebs that are still alive, but I'm afraid that would turn sad too, as they're not likely long for this world.

Some of my favorites are still alive- Gene Hackman, Clint Eastwood, Michael Caine....

Do any of you guys remember the movie "Blame it on Rio"?
Hilarious! Laughing

Clint Eastwood is still going strong. I used to think he had dementia, because he'd give convoluted talks that were so bizarre. I thought it was awful that his agents, publicist, and family, kept dragging him out. It looked like elder abuse. Then I realized that he's still acting and pulling in viewers, so that must not be the case. He sure has changed, though.

I didn't know that Graeme Edge had passed. How sad! He had amazing energy on stage. So who is left from the Moody Blues? Hayward and Lodge? I know that their flutist passed away in 2018. I've seen the Moody Blues in concert, and they gave a great performance.

The thing about Anne Heche is that she was under the influence when she wrecked, and her actions harmed innocent people. That's got to be hard for her family. I'm sure her estate will get sued. I can't imagine dealing with that on top of the grief.

Hayward and Lodge are still alive.

I saw the Moodies in the 1980s and 1990s, when the whole band was present. I also saw them in the late 2000s or early 2010's - can't remember exactly - but it was after Thomas had died. That lineup included the trio Hayward, Edge and Lodge. A young lady stood in for Thomas, playing flute. A couple years ago, I went to concert with band members of Yes, Asia/ELP and the Moodies. Lodge was there. The group did songs of each of the bands. Not sure what Hayward is doing these days.

So true. I always liked that guy, and was impressed that he kept working all the way 'til the end.

One of my favorite roles he played was "Jonathan E." from "Rollerball." I always loved that film.

Lamont Dozier and the Holland bros. was to Detroit soul, every bit the tunesmiths as Leiber & Stoller were to 50's pop rock. Just the pinnacle.

James Caan, a fine actor. Usually a tough guy, but with depth. I liked him as Mr. Henry in an indie movie called Bottle Rocket from the late 90's. Playing a tough guy and con man in a supporting role. But the movie would be nothin without him.
