    Who's left from the first generation? Little Richard, the Killer, Fats, Lloyd Price... from the greats, I think that's it.
    A legend indeed. More than influential : the kind of artist who truly changed the world. RIP.

    Shoot! I liked most of the game show series that he created. May he create great shows wherever he is now.
    RIP Mr. Barris.

    I can recall The Dating Game and The Newlywed Show on ABC during the late '60s before it became much more risque in syndication. I also can say I watched the first episode of The Gong Show on NBC. Still, my favorite of his shows was Treasure Hunt.

    RIP

    Ooh, I loved the Gong Show! Poor Chuck Barris. He was so funny he would crack himself up on camera!

    But, Mr. Barris is another one of those famous people whom I thought I had heard had died years ago!

    Chuck Berry and Chuck Barris in one week?
    I'm sure glad my name ain't Chuck Barrel.

    I loved the Gong Show and it's wacky cast like the Unknown Comic and Gene Gene the Dancing Machine!

    First saw this beauty in Taras Bulba. Wished I had seen her in more films, thought it appears she had a long career in Europe. BTW, Tony didn't deserve either her or Janet Leigh.

    Glamorous actress Lola Albright also died recently in her early nineties. Probably best known for her role as the titular character's girlfriend on Peter Gunn, she could be seen in a variety of big-budget films from the '40s until the '60s.



    RIP to both both ladies

    Yeah, I just heard Mr. Warmth died. Another all-time great that always seemed to be a part of my life.

    First time I saw him had to be on The Munsters back in the late '60s, but my favorite role of his is Ray Milland's sleazy business partner in X: The Man With the X-Ray Eyes. A very good dramatic actor, IMO.

    RIP, you hockey puck!
