Alan Simpson, who with his long-term partner Ray Galton (happily still with us) was easily one of the most important writers in British sitcom history: indeed, Hancock's Half-Hour and Steptoe and Son did as much to establish and shape the genre's basic principles as anything before or since.

So Alan Simpson, David Axelrod, and Richard Hatch all died. But not that Alan Simpson, David Axelrod, or Richard Hatch.

Hah, reminds me of a reaction I got when I told someone (who turned out to be a huge Game of Thrones fan) that George Martin died. (Bigger deal for me since I'm a much bigger Beatles fan than anything else.)

Ivan Koloff, professional Wrestler. The article reveals that George "The Animal" Steele also passed. Two wrestlers I grew up watching back in the day when the WWE was called the WWWF.

The passing of Ivan is pretty sad for me as I knew him. He lived like 10 minutes away from my house and he was an incredible sweet guy, very different from the persona he played in the wrestling business. I'm sad too that WWE didn't induct him into their Hall of Fame while he was alive.

I had seen that Ivan was ill recently, so this isn't a surprise.

I had read about his WWWF career (and his beating Sammartino) but I knew him more from his time in the NWA in the mid to late '70's. He really did have a great act, playing up the Lenin look and toting around the hammer and sickle flag.

Ugh...Clyde Stubblefield.

I've seen him a few times in the 90s, and he was always charming. With Al Jarreau, it's been a tough few days. Two childhood favorites.
