I remember the movie "Name of the Rose" with Sean Connery; I'll have to try and find the book

Keith Emerson. His WIkipedia page suggests it was a suicide (he was diagnosed with colon cancer in 2010. Maybe it got worse and he decided to end it before it got too painful).
Rough year for music deaths.

Frank Sinatra Jr. died suddenly while on tour.
He was 72.
My hand to God, she's gonna be at Carnegie Hall. But you - I'll let you have her now at the old price, OK? Which is, which is anything you wanna give me. Anything at all.

Joe Santos: Actor Dies From Heart Attack at Age 84

Image


Joe Santos, who played Lieutenant Dennis Becker on The Rockford Files, has died at 84.

Santos died Friday in Santa Monica, California, after a heart attack earlier in the week, according to his agent Alicia Beekman.

Santos’ career spanned more than four decades, from a guest shot on Naked City in the early 1960s through a recurring role on The Sopranos.

But he was best known as Lieutenant Becker, the pal and grudging helpmate of L.A. private eye Jim Rockford (James Garner) on NBC’s The Rockford Files, which aired from 1974 to 1980 and scored him an Emmy nomination.

The New York-born actor also had guest roles on such series as Magnum, P.I., Miami Vice and Hardcastle & McCormick.

He also played a magnificent Thomas Jefferson in the movie 1776
I am shocked he's gone.

Joe Garagiola -- I'm putting it here because he was a better broadcaster than he was a player. Surprised he was a childhood friend of Yogi Berra
