Also Glen Frey from the Eagles and Natalie Cole this past week.

Sad to say Dan Haggerty will, for the most part, only be known about by Americans of a certain age so his death didn't get much attention. I loved 'The Life and Times of Grizzly Adams' as kid though.

Edit: Missed that there was already a thread for Glen. :blush:

I'm not surprised that his show would've went off well in Australia.

Took a quick look at what years it ran and I was older than I thought when it was on the air. I would've sworn that it was when I was 10-11 but was actually my mid-teens. I guess I was thinking of the original movie that came 3 years before the show.

Yes, Dan was indeed cited as the undisputed BBC “voice of tennis or voice of Wimbledon” but Gerald too was often heralded as one of the great voices within tennis.

Former Warwickshire cricketer Jack Bannister has also passed away. As a lifelong supporter of Warwickshire County cricket club, this too is sad news. I never got to watch him play first hand (before my time) but his record for the club remains impressive. :(

TO ALL FANS OF THE BEVERLY HILLS COP TRILOGY.
Image From variety.com
He would be remembered as the frustrated highly tempered chief Inspector Douglas Todd in the Beverly Hills Cop Trilogy. His only roles in his short acting career. But in real life, he was Detroit's finest. And was involved in the Atlanta Child Murders investigation in 1979.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gil_Hill

Former Detroit Commander and 1-time actor Gil Hill has succumbed to respiratory problems related to complications of pneumonia this past February 29.

Hill also ran for Mayor in 2001 only to lose to Kwame Kilpatrick (Who later was involved in a racketeering scandal before his conviction in 2013).

His career spanned 3 years in the USAF, 42 years in the police force, and later in city council.

A class gentleman and a scholar.

This is a quote from Todd regarding being a character and real life because he was also a religious person:
Quote:
He didn't curse as much in real life


It was the reason he never pursued acting.

But he deserves to be in the walk of fame. How about it Eddie? Go get him a star.

YOU WILL BE MISSED INSPECTOR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hill was 84 years old.

Paul Daniels, the legendary British magician passed away.

He had been diagnosed with a brain tumour just last month.


I had actually met Paul Daniels briefly in Edinburgh after seeing his show at the Fringe maybe 5 years ago. I also saw him perform at Strathclyde Uni about 10 years ago. A great showman. Put up with our drunken patter at the Uni, and my mate panicking when asked what his job was when we were in Edinburgh.

TRAGEDY ON STAGE:

Indonesian pop singer Irma Bule who was well known for singing with reptiles, was killed after stepping into a cobra causing it to bite her on her thigh. Right after the bite, she continued on for 45 minutes despite the handler's plea to stop.

Our thoughts go out to her family.

Bule was 29.
