R.I.P. Easy Rider Dennis Hopper…

You character was bad as hell and I loved you in “Water World”…

chuck

LOS ANGELES (Reuters) – Hollywood actor Dennis Hopper, best known for directing and starring in the 1969 cult classic “Easy Rider,” died on Saturday from complications of prostate cancer, a friend of the actor said. Hopper was 74.

The hard-living screen star died at his home in the coastal Los Angeles suburb of Venice at 8:15 a.m. PDT (1515 GMT), surrounded by family and friends, the friend, Alex Hitz, told Reuters. In a wildly varied career spanning more than 50 years, Hopper appeared alongside his mentor James Dean in “Rebel Without a Cause” and “Giant” in the 1950s and played maniacs in such films as “Apocalypse Now,” “Blue Velvet” and “Speed.”

Heaven And Hell With Rob Halford To Appear At Ronnie James Dio Memorial Gig?

( From Metal Music News )

Speculation is growing regarding memorial concerts in tribute for the late Ronnie James Dio. Classic Rock Magazine is reporting that two major concerts are being planned to celebrate the life of the late Ronnie James Dio.

Details are sketchy at present, but what is for sure is that the gigs are going to be dubbed Ronnie James Dio ‘Stand Up And Shout’ Memorial Concerts.

They will take place in London and Los Angeles in Autumn 2010.

Speculation is mounting that the shows will feature the surviving members of Heaven And Hell – Tony Iommi, Geezer Butler and Vinny Appice – with Judas Priest’s Rob Halford filling in for Dio on vocals. But we must stress this has not been confirmed.

However, as Halford has been deputized for both Dio and Ozzy Osbourne in Black Sabbath before, a precedent has already been set.

R.I.P. Gary Coleman

PROVO, Utah – Gary Coleman, the child star of the smash 1970s TV sitcom “Diff’rent Strokes” whose later career was marred by medical and legal problems, died Friday after suffering a brain hemorrhage. He was 42. Utah Valley Regional Medical Center spokeswoman Janet Frank said life support was terminated and Coleman died at 12:05 p.m. MDT. Coleman, with his sparkling eyes and perfect comic timing, became a star after “Diff’rent Strokes” debuted in 1978. He played younger brother Arnold Jackson a pair of African-American siblings adopted by a wealthy white man.

Stop the Presses…Willie Nelson has cut his hair!!

Wow, the pigtails were part of the red headed stranger look and now they are gone…More on it here..

chuck

AUSTIN, Texas – Country music fans have come to expect a little eccentricity from legendary crooner Willie Nelson, but he pulled off a real shocker this time.

He cut his hair.

“Oh Noooooo!,” wrote one fan who saw a picture of Nelson’s new do on the website of Nashville TV and radio personality Jimmy Carter. Nelson’s waist-deep, reddish pigtails have long been one of the singer-songwriter’s signature features. But spokeswoman Elaine Schock said Nelson, who’s been hanging loose in Hawaii, got his hair cut in the past couple of weeks. She said the Texas-born performer didn’t make a big fuss about the makeover, but she thought he might have grown tired of dealing with long locks. “There’s a lot of maintenance,” she said.

Amityville Horror House for sale

Whether this was one of the greatest hoax’s pulled off  or one heck of a real haunting…The movie scared the hell out of me …I saw it on Cable TV a few weeks ago and I still couldn’t watch it…creepy, very creepy..

chuck

AMITYVILLE, N.Y. – The house made famous in the 1979 film “The Amityville Horror” is up for sale in New York — ghosts not included.

The five-bedroom Dutch Colonial went on the market Monday for $1.15 million.

The Oscar-nominated film is based on the story of the Lutz family’s brief stay in the house in 1975 after six members of the DeFeo family were shot and killed as they slept in the home. Eldest son Ronald DeFeo Jr. was convicted of the murders.

The crime spawned a book and a series of movies that chronicled various supernatural horrors, including visions of walls oozing slime, moving furniture and a visit from a demonic pig named Jodie. The original film stars James Brolin and Margot Kidder.

Neighbors say gawkers still occasionally come by, mostly on Halloween.
