In this so called Reality. Well, most of the time.
His most recent role was as a Klingon warlord in a fan movie that was trying to get funding to be made. It takes place just a decade or so before the original series. They did a 20 minute or so preview which was incredible. And he was wonderful!


The film is called Axanar and this preview is better than the 3 current Trek movies combined that have come out in recent years! Sadly Paramount threw their weight around and forced the project to be chopped from a full length movie to two 15 minute Youtube segments.

Al Jarreau just passed away.

"Who?"

His biggest "mainstream" hit was We're In This Love Together, but he was kinda big in "smooth jazz".

Joni Sledge passed away at the age of 60. The cause of death hasn't be determined as yet.

"Who?"

You might be familiar with a song that she was involved in: We Are Family by the group Sister Sledge.

I cannot help but tap my foot when I hear Johnny B Goode and smile when I see that scene from Back to the Future.

Sib Hashian passed away at the age of 67 during a performance.

"Who?"

He used to be the drummer for the band Boston. In fact, he was on the Legends of Rock cruise when he collapsed.

John Geils and Charlie Murphy died. Geils was 71 and Murphy was 57, the former died from natural causes (nothing further on that) and the latter succumbed to leukemia.

"Who?" you ask?

John Geils, well-known in the late 1970s through the 1980s for his group, the J. Geils Band, while Charlie Murphy is better known through his brother (Eddie Murphy.)

Emma Moran passed away this past weekend. She wasn't a media star, but she was unusual.

"What's so special about her?" you ask?

She was the last person born in 1899 still alive. Yes, she was 117 years old (celebrated her birthday not that long ago, in fact.)

I'm not sure if I'd like to live that long myself...

Sylvia Moy passed away Friday at the age of 78 due to complications of pneumonia.

"Who's she?" you ask?

Well, for one, she was the first openly-recognized female record producer, but that's not how she's widely recognized.

She wrote several little-known songs with Henry Cosby for Motown like It Takes Two, This Old Heart of Mine (Is Weak for You), My Cherie Amour, I Was Made to Love Her, Uptight (Everything's Alright), I'm Wondering, and Shoo-Be-Doo-Be-Doo-Da-Day. There might be more, but I cannot think of them right now. :oops:

Someone whose son is a tad more famous (although they were famous in different fields) just passed. He was 72, just a week shy of 73.

"Who?"

Cuba Gooding, Sr., the lead singer for The Main Ingredient, whose son, Cuba Gooding, Jr., is more famous as an actor.
