That sucks. I enjoyed him in the Smokey and the Bandit movies.
I remember my dream now.

Richard Wright passed away. Wish they would have done that Pink Floyd reunion.

Holy ****, much like Syd, I didn't see this one coming. I guess this squashes any talk of a Floyd reunion.

Sad to see one of the greatest keyboard players for one of the greatest bands go.

RIP Richard  :'(

Shame.  Pink Floys is (was) such an awesome band.  One of my absolute favorites.
Peacekeeper, when it absolutely, positively has to be nuked in 30 minutes or less.  Or the next nuke's free!

Indeed sad. Floyd is pretty much my favorite band or one of the absolute top.

For sure one of my favorite actors of all time.  He lived a long, full life so here's to you Paul, I think I'll eat a hard boiled egg for lunch

I saw Paul quite a few times (on a yearly basis) during my life at Elkhart Lake while attending the races there. He owned a team and was quite a class act. He will be missed and the world needs more guys like him.

Butch Cassidy is one of my earliest movie memories. Getting to stay up late watching it with my dad is still a great memory for me.

Slapshot, filmed just a little bit from me over in Johnstown...  A classic forever and must-watch for any hockey fan.  I usually don't care about famous people dying but this one bummed me a little bit.
