... I generally don't believe Wiki unless I've heard it stated somewhere else as well.  I should have prefaced it with the phrase "According to Wiki:"
It's a very useful site for checking facts.  Much that I have found is accurate (there's a hell of alot on the English kings TeddyR) but frankly I've found their music entries to be surprisingly inaccurate...   Wink   Thumbup 

Oh yeh, there's lots more taken too early, here's three very sad ones:
ANISSA JONES "Buffy" on late '60s TV classic "Family Affair"
HEATHER O'ROURKE "Carol Anne" from POLTERGEIST
BOBBY DRISCOLL the voice of Disney's PETER PAN who played "Jim Hawkins" in the classic TREASURE ISLAND

Shame about Heather.  Also felt bad for Dominique Dunne, who played Heather's older sister in the first Poltergeist.  She was strangled by her ex boyfriend.

...former lead guitar, singer, and writer for Sublime, Brad Nowell....
Same here with Brad, he and Sublime made songs that I can only imagine are just feel good songs, meaning that I imagine that the person who is listening to it is at a hookah bar and (for lack of a better word) doped out.

If it's true what they say, that GOD created us in His image, then why should we not love creating, and why should we not continue to do so, as carefully and ethically as we can, on whatever scale we're capable of?

     The choice is simple; refuse to create, and refuse to grow, or build, with care and love.

This.  Such a sad, pointless way to go.  Marvin Gaye too.

He's already been mentioned, but River Phoenix.  I watched STAND BY ME a couple days ago  and it's painful seeing how much potential he had.

That is so true. Someone described Mr Henson as "a very good, talented teacher" and that he was.

I will never forget him and the characters he created: I just have to look at my Kermit and my huge Cookie Monster and there he is.  Smile

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.

    Lesson Learned:
    • Osmosis: os∑mo∑sis (oz-mo'sis, os-) n., 1. When a bird eats something.
