Sadly, the great actor, Sid Haig, passed away at age 80...
Rob Zombie posted that Haig had been sick for a little while (he didn't specify the illness). Apparently, Haig's final performance in Three From Hell - the third movie in the Firefly franchise which includes House of 1000 Corpses and The Devil's Rejects - is fairly brief as a result.

R.I.P. Diahann Carroll who passed away today at age 84 from cancer. I don't own a single Diahann Carroll recording; actually I'm not that familiar with her career. She did have a great career as a singer, stage performer, and TV and movie actress. I remember two main things about her. In 1968 Diahann starred in a TV show called Julia, in which she played a nurse and single mother. It was a groundbreaking role as she was the first African-American women to star in a television series. My sisters and I used to tune in every week to watch that show. I also remember Diahann Carroll as an exceptionally beautiful woman.

R.I.P. Robert Forster, a great actor who starred as bail bondsman, Max Cherry, in one of my favorite movies, Jackie Brown. Robert passed away at age 78 from brain cancer. Actor Sid Haig, who recently passed away (see post above), also had a bit part in that movie.
Aww, that’s really sad news about Marie Fredricksson. I love Roxette, their Look Sharp and Joyride albums were two of my favourites when I was a kid. They had some great songs and Marie had an incredible voice. 17 years is a long time to battle that heinous f***ing disease. RIP, Marie. I know what I’ll be spinning tonight in her honour.
Damn shame. I only know Roxette from "Joyride" but yes, it's time we put all this wonderful knowledge we're supposed to have into wiping that shitty disease off the face of the earth. Seventeen years of it--poor Marie. May she rest in peace.

R.I.P. Jerry Herman, the Broadway music composer who wrote the music and lyrics for such shows as "Hello, Dolly!" and "Mame", who passed away at age 88. I'm not much of a Broadway fan, but Jerry also wrote one of my all-time favorite Christmas songs, "We Need A Little Christmas".
Haul out the holly
Put up the tree before my spirit falls again
Fill up the stocking
I may be rushing things but deck the halls again now
B.E.: I skimmed the Mark Linett interview recently posted on SSMB. He said he’s hoping for a Fall release for the box set.

Sheriff John Stone: Was hoping for a spring/early summer release, however, I hope for a spring/early summer release with EVERY Beach Boys' album! I can wait for fall.

Kapitan: Maybe we’ll get that BW doc that we heard about way back when, Long Promised Doc 😀

kds: I get the feeling that documentary will one day be mentioned in the same breath as the 50th Anniversary Doc that was supposed to happen in 2012
Feb 27, 2020 20:55:14 GMT
Kapitan: And Pleasure Island!?

Sheriff John Stone: I'm skeptical about that Long Promised Road doc, not whether it will eventually come out, but the quality. If the highlight is Brian and an interviewer driving around and Brian commenting on BB songs/albums, I can only imagine how that'll go...

Sheriff John Stone: ...Brian, what do you think about the song, "Long Promised Road"? Brian - "I thought Carl sang it great." Brian, what do you think about The Beach Boys Love You album? Brian - "There's some great songs on that album."

Kapitan: I'm skeptical about EVERYTHING. But that doesn't mean I'm not interested in seeing and hearing it all.

Wata: I hope it would include some rarities - hopefully with the accompanying soundtrack. And it's time we got to listen to snippets from the rendition of "Long Promised Road" Brian supposedly recorded for the doc. I'm not holding my breath for it, but still...

kds: From the description, it sounded like a new version of the Brian Wilson On Tour doc.
Feb 28, 2020 13:20:10 GMT
Kapitan: Except as I recall, they were focusing on driving around LA for a lot of it. Just Brian and whoever the eventual filmmaker was (there had been a replacement) seeing the sights and chatting.
Feb 28, 2020 13:28:28 GMT
Kapitan: btw, it's just a couple weeks shy of a year since they released the movie poster.
Feb 28, 2020 13:31:24 GMT
kds: And, didn't they do the driving around bit in the IJWMFTT doc?
