Damn. Seems like fewer and fewer Golden Age guys left now. RIP.


It's a shame.  It's amazing how young these people are/were, along with how many have died within the past 2-3 years

Sucks about Ted Lindsay.  What a legend.  As for Luke Perry, I wasn't on the 90210 bandwagon, but a lot of people I know were.  That was a major star on a great show; the discussion & reaction was legit during the original run.  Gone way too soon; totally sucks.
