LOS ANGELES Impressionist Fred Travalena, a headliner in Vegas showrooms and a regular on late-night talk shows with his takes on presidents, crooners and screen stars, has died in Los Angeles. He was 66.

Publicist Roger Neal says Travalena died Sunday at his home in the Encino area after a recurrence of the non-Hodgkin's lymphoma that first surfaced in 2002.

Travalena was known for the sheer volume of celebrities he imitated, leading to the nicknames "The Man of a Thousand Voices" and "Mr. Everybody."

His act included presidents from Kennedy to Obama, musicians from Frank Sinatra to Bruce Springsteen and actors from Marlon Brando to Tom Cruise.

The Bronx native started his career in Las Vegas in 1971.

Karl Malden, one of Hollywood's strongest and most versatile supporting actors, who won an Oscar playing his Broadway-originated role as Mitch in "A Streetcar Named Desire," died today. He was 97.


The Oscar winner appeared in more than 50 films, starred in TV's 'The Streets of San Francisco' and made famous the American Express catchphrase 'Don't leave home without it.'

One of my '60's music heroes died last week...the Seed's singer and songwriter, Sky Saxon.

Sky Saxon, guitarist and lead singer for the influential garage band The Seeds has died in Austin, TX, Austin360.com is reporting. The Seeds' success was short but brilliant. They helped define the spirit of '66 and the sound of countless garage bands trying to sound like the Stones and the Yardbirds but on a lunch-money budget. Formed in L.A., the band's greatest success came with the signature 1966 hit "Pushin' Too Hard." In later years, Saxon fronted various incarnations of The Seeds, joined the Source Family religious group and collaborated with other bands. He'd only recently moved to Austin.
