Not a celeb death, but certainly celeb-related, and tragic.

From the link:

The woman killed at “Tarzan” star Ron Ely's home has been identified as his wife of 35 years, Valerie Lundeen, authorities said.

The Elys' son Cameron has been named as the murder suspect. Cameron was fatally shot by responding officers Tuesday evening. The homicide occurred in Hope Ranch, a suburb outside Santa Barbara.

Thanks. Yeah, I saw this story on TV.

RIP Valerie. And condolences, Ron.

That has to be a truly heartbreaking experience, for your son to kill your wife, his mother, and then be killed by the police. In one fell swoop you lose both of them.

Depends on the family dynamic, I guess. Not all families are "Leave it to Beaver", just ask Todd Palin.

EtA: According to this story, the son stabbed the mother to death, then called 9-1-1 and tried to pin in on the father.

If I was the father, I'm thinking I wouldn't be mourning the loss of a son like that. My Condolences to Ron Ely on the loss of his wife, though. He lost not just his wife but also, given his poor health, the caregiver who had not only stuck by him all these years but was likely taking care of him now.

‘Maude’ Star Bill Macy Dies at 97
Link

Bill Macy, who played Bea Arthur’s husband Walter Findlay on the “All in the Family” spinoff, “Maude,” died on Thursday. He was 97.

“My buddy Bill Macy passed away at 7:13pm tonight. He was a spitfire right up to the end,” producer and manager Matt Beckoff wrote on Facebook. “My condolences to his beautiful wife Samantha Harper Macy.”

Funny guy. Seems like I've seen him in everything.

And if you've seen him in Oh! Calcutta!, you've seen everything.


He was most well known for Maude (1972-78) where he play "Walter Findlay", Maude's Husband and an appliance store owner. Maude was a spinoff of All In The Family, with Bea Arthur (RIP 2009) having an occasional bit part as Edith Bunker's cousin Maude. Bill Macy was also on All In The Family, also as "Walter Findlay", but as a policeman rather than appliance store owner and I don't remember him being connected to Maude in AITF. I don't remember that Maude's last name was even mentioned in AITF.

Nick Tosches, Music Critic, age 69. Probably best known for his biography of Jerry Lee Lewis in the early '80s, but I first heard of him as a columnist and/or reviewer for either "Audio" or "High Fidelity" magazines in the late '70s.

His 'style' was, um, "interesting". What used to be called called "Gonzo" journalism: Not even a pretense of being impartial or merely a 'disinterested onlooker'. At times infuriating, but most times a breath of fresh air compared to other Music critics of the era who probably had second jobs as golf announcers.

I mean, if you don't like a particular artist or album, it's OKAY to say you simply don't "like" it, without having to bury it in 12 layers of BS that only a PhD from Julliard would understand, whilst all the while trying to maintain an air of impartiality.

Even well beyond music, I think a lot of today's journalist on whatever topic could learn a lot from Nick Tosches.

RIP Nick Tosches. May his next review be from The Great Gig In The Sky.

An unkind British theatre critic famously remarked that the biggest problem with Oh Calcutta wasn't the actual nudity, but that 'not everything on stage stops when the music does.........'

Read one book of his on the roots of rock and roll, found his tough guy, Hunter S Thompson-esque style quickly irritating.
I don't rate Lester Bangs or Christgau either. To be honest, most of the 'legendary' US music critics haven't dated well.

The UK never got Maude. Bea Arthur is only famous for the Golden Girls, which was a big hit here in the 80s.

AITF , of course, is the American version of legendary UK sitcom Till Death Us Do Part (1965-75). Norman Lear, for all the hype then and now about how controversial AITF was. actually admitted he toned down the UK original.

I don't think we actually met Walter until AITF had a cross spinoff show to launch Maude, which was about the daughter getting married. Archie and Edith went to the engagement parties or something.
The maid from Maude was spun off into her own show called Good Times.

Macy was also in a satire called 'Serial', about liberals in a wealthy California suburb. Funny movie. It also starred Martin Mull and I think Sally Kellerman or Tuesday Weld. Maybe both. I haven't seen it in ages.

And he was the co-inventor of the Opti-Grab.

John Witherspoon, 77..
He was a character actor and comedian whose more prominent roles were mostly in predominantly black movies and TV shows. He was the voice of ‘Grandad’ on The Boondocks, a cartoon on the Adult Swim/Cartoon network. He’s had me in stitches many times.

RIP

"Jan in the pan". It was a great entry in the MST3k annals.

RIP Ms Leith.

He's a brilliant comedic actor IMHO. Always made me smile at the very least. RIP Mr. Witherspoon.
