Heinz Edelmann, the illustrator of the movie "Yellow Submarine" died 21 July, 2009. What I want to know is how Peter Max usually gets credit for "Yellow Submarine? He had nothing to do with it. Anybody??

RIP Heinz Edelmann.

Oh, no! That's terrible news. I was never a fan of the Dead, but I have all of NRPS's albums. One of those bands that should have made it bigger than they did. I will conduct a NRPS vinyl marathon in the lounge, this evening. RIP Mr. Dawson & thanks for the music!

R.I.P. Gidget

Gidget the Chihuahua, whose Taco Bell commercials made her a star, has died. She was 15.

The owner of Studio Animal Services in Castaic says Gidget suffered a massive stroke late Tuesday at her trainer's home in Santa Clarita and had to be euthanized.

Gidget was the sassy mascot in Taco Bell commercials from 1997 to 2000. While other dogs had bit parts, it was her bug-eyed, big-eared face that was seen pronouncing "Yo quiero Taco Bell," Spanish for "I want Taco Bell," in a male voice dubbed by Argentine actor Carlos Alazraqui.

I love these little dogs. They're not all timid little, yappy ankle bitters. My Chihuahua Rocky (short for Rocket J. Squirrel) is a funny, smart, gregarious and friendly dog that loves to go to Dog Beach (O.B. San Diego) and play with the other dogs (his best friend is a female Boxer), love his fam and spread the mana.

NEW YORK - Writer-director John Hughes, Hollywood’s youth impresario of the 1980s and ’90s who captured and cornered the teen and pre-teen market with such favorites as “Home Alone,” “The Breakfast Club” and “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off,” died Thursday, a spokeswoman said. He was 59.

Hughes died of a heart attack during a morning walk in Manhattan, Michelle Bega said. He was in New York to visit family.

A native of Lansing, Mich., who later moved to suburban Chicago and set much of his work there, Hughes rose from ad writer to comedy writer to silver screen champ with his affectionate and idealized portraits of teens, whether the romantic and sexual insecurity of “Sixteen Candles,” or the J.D. Salinger-esque rebellion against conformity in “The Breakfast Club.”

Hughes’ ensemble comedies helped make stars out of Molly Ringwald, Anthony Michael Hall, Ally Sheedy and many other young performers. He also scripted the phenomenally popular “Home Alone,” which made little-known Macaulay Culkin a sensation as the 8-year-old accidentally abandoned by his vacationing family, and wrote or directed such hits as “National Lampoon’s Vacation,” “Pretty in Pink,” “Planes, Trains & Automobiles” and “Uncle Buck.”

Other actors who got early breaks from Hughes included John Cusack (“Sixteen Candles”), Judd Nelson (“The Breakfast Club”), Steve Carell (“Curly Sue”) and Lili Taylor (“She’s Having a Baby”).

As Hughes advanced into middle age, his commercial touch faded and, in Salinger style, he increasingly withdrew from public life. His last directing credit was in 1991, for “Curly Sue,” and he wrote just a handful of scripts over the past decade. He was rarely interviewed or photographed.

"founder of punk group Mink DeVille"...Willy must be spinning in his grave. I remember the first interview I read with him, he was asked if his music is punk and "are you a punk?". Willy's response was "Hell no I ain't no punk. A punk is a guy that gets chased home from school every day. A punk is a guy that gets raped in jail. Don't call me a punk!"

Guitar Legend Les Paul, Dies at Age 94
(excerpts)
"WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. - Les Paul, the guitarist and inventor who changed the course of music with the electric guitar and multitrack recording and had a string of hits, many with wife Mary Ford, died on Thursday. He was 94.

"According to Gibson Guitar, Paul died of complications from pneumonia at White Plains Hospital. His family and friends were by his side..."
"...As an inventor, Paul helped bring about the rise of rock 'n' roll and multitrack recording, which enables artists to record different instruments at different times, sing harmony with themselves, and then carefully balance the "tracks" in the finished recording."

Had to add this...
In the 40’s after a bad-ass car accident - his right elbow was shattered and the doctors had to rebuild it in a set position…he had them construct it at his optimum guitar picking angle (or so I've been told)…cause he’s the man….
RIP To the Man.
