Travis Barker (drummer of Blink 182) has been seriously injured in a plane crash, however my boyfriend just got a text from his brother saying that he's died. I can't find anything online, so hopefully that's not the case.

Last I heard, he was expected to recover from serious burns. I haven't read anything about his death so far.
sleeping_pirate
No, it seems it was a hoax. The accident sounds horrific though.
crazeegems
What's also awful is that the four other people on the plane died. Close friends of Travis' and the pilots.

Very sad indeed.

This is really weird, because about six or seven years ago there was a hoax going around (I don't know if it was just locally) that one of the other Blink 182-ers had died in a car crash.
Omniscia
What's so weird about that? 6 or 7 years ago they were still popular.

They are. Which sadly means no one can give the reply "no-no nono-no-no, nono-nono..."

Terrible, very very sad and I wish I didn't have to say it but Paul Newman.

We'll always have his salad dressing...

On the other hand, Butch, nooooooo!

On the other hand, he didn't look 83!

I was thinking the same thing, you would never of thought he was 83

That is sad, he was one of my favourite proper movie stars. It's weird that I had dream about him only the other day for no apparent reason.

This is a definite bummer. And my mother will probably be crushed.

That's very sad. A true icon.

I just welled up a bit watching the news.

The only person that can make marriage work is Paul Newman! And Iíve met me; I'm no Paul Newman. I donít race cars! I donít make popcorn! None of my proceeds go to charity.

Once asked if he was ever attracted by the beautiful women with whom he worked Newman famously replied, "Why go out for a hamburger when you can have steak at home".

In the truest sense of the word he really was. There aren't many proper iconic living legends of the screen, and now there's one fewer.
gulfcoast_highwayman
He was such a great man. RIP.
Serafina_Pekkala
A beautiful, talented and genuine man - RIP. My sympathies to Joanne and his family.

Terribly sad, but you have to admire the man's work and how much he had raised for charity.

One of the greats. smile.gif

Indeed.


It's hard to imagine a time when all the legendary actors of the 20th century will no longer be with us... but it's going to happen. (Perhaps a little morbidly) this is what I think about when such an icon dies.

I'm going to watch Torn Curtain tomorrow. I've never seen it before, & it's been sat on my shelf for months.

Sad news.
maian
Only just read about this and, even if it's not that shocking, given recent rumours about his health, it is deeply saddening. Still, he left behind a fantastic body of work and a great legacy.

Possibly the coolest person in movie history. I hope he's eating 50 hard-boiled eggs in a better place.

God I love Paul Newman. So, so sad that he has passed on, but he leaves behind a great legacy, both in his body of work and the wonderful philanthropy of Newman's Own.

I tried to argue to the SONY crowd that McQueen, Newman and Eastwood constituted the trifecta of legendary man-crushes cool. Guess who argued against, and who he offered as a substitute? wink.gif

Rob Guest

QUOTE
Theatre star Rob Guest has died in Melbourne after suffering a massive stroke. The 57-year-old, who had been starring in the musical Wicked, was admitted to Melbourne's St Vincent's Hospital last night. His stage musical career took him to Australia where he starred in Les Miserables and The Phantom of the Opera. He was the world's longest serving Phantom, having played the role a record 2289 times in performances over seven years. More recently he played Captain Von Trapp in The Sound of Music.


Sad. sad.gif
I saw him in Phantom about 10 years ago. Great voice. cool.gif

Feel the love.

Double post, but I just heard about Gideon Baws. Very gutted, I was a big fan of Shynola, especially their work with Radiohead and Unkle. There's a massive hole in the creative industry, he'll be sorely missed.

Actually, I really did think he had died already.

The passing of Mr Blackwell probably won't be mourned by many.

Why did people give this bitchy old queen so much attention - if the US media hadn't have paid any attention to him, then he'd have just slinked off to Florida and retired quietly.

He supposedly died of an intestinal infection - maybe all that mild bile he spewed every year found it's way into his bowels.

The yahoo reported used the word "legend" - these days this particular piece of lingual currency is more devalued than the German mark after WW1. He was only a "legend" because bored and lazy journalists slavishly gathered outside his house every year to see him step outside the gate and deliver his damning verdicts on celebrity fashion in a Luthor-like manner.

Oh, and there's nothing particularly clever about speaking in rhyme - it's very childish.

"This season, many will gloat...
...because I'm wearing a wooden overcoat."


See - I can be childish, too. tongue.gif

Sorry if this post seems very catty, but I really couldn't stand this pointless individual - Nick hated him, too... wink.gif

dandan
although you obviously cared enough to write such a post about his death...
KevinandNick
If by "cared" you mean that he irritated me in life to do the literary equivalent of a jig on his final resting place, then, yes - I cared.

He irked me - I mentioned Mr Blackwell's demise to Nick on the phone earlier and he was quite pleased...

Whilst I may not be mourning the passing of Mr Blackwell, I AM sad to see that blaxploitation great Rudy Ray Moore has gone to perform his stand-up routine to St Peter. sad.gif

With the death of Isaac Hayes so recently, it comes as a bit of a shock to read of the cessation of life of another member of that unique band of seventies movie stars.

I sign off this sad post with one of my favourites from Mr Moore...

Frank 'Lefty' Rosenthal.

He was the basis for Robert De Niro's 'Ace Rothstien' in Casino, and was a bit of a shit in real life, unsurprisingly.

He died on 13th October, but I only caught it in the Grauniad obits.
