RIP Boyd Coddington

A sad day for all car enthusiasts/builders and customizers out there.

LOS ANGELES, California (AP) -- Car-building legend Boyd Coddington, whose testosterone-injected cable TV reality show "American Hot Rod" introduced the nation to the West Coast hot rod guru, has died. He was 63.

Does one ever really need a reason to watch Road House?

Sad news about Jeff Healey, though.  I was really only familiar with "Angel Eyes," which is still just as good a song today as it was twenty years ago.  RIP.

Speaking of Road House:

Pancreatic Cancer Hits Patrick Swayze: 5 Weeks to Live

Quote
Patrick Swayze was reportedly diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in late January. New reports allege that the cancer has spread to other organs and doctors have given his only 5 more weeks to live.

The 55-year-old actor has allegedly been undergoing radical chemotherapy at Stanford University’s cancer center but the treatments are no longer affective. “He was told he could have two more treatments, but his cancer was not responding. In short – they held out little hope for a cure,” said a source. “It’s time to start praying for a miracle.”

Insiders say Patrick Swayze, who is married to Lisa Niemi, has lost weight because he is on a liquid only diet as he cannot keep solid food down due to cancer.

Yikes.

That does suck, if its true.  The news source in this article  is the National Enquirer.  Hopefully its just been sensationalized.

But why would the National Enquirer sensationalize a story such as this?

You seriously aren't putting Patrick Swayze in the same class as Sam Elliot, are you?

Nope, just continuing the potential trend of dead/dying "Road House" actors.
