      Tawny Kitaen, 59, of Whitesnake and on top of cars music video fame. I think I was 16 when the video for 'Here I Go Again' came out. One day my good friend excitedly told me to watch the video, and that I'd know why he was so excited when I saw it. When I finally saw it, the infamous slip had already been edited out and I had lost my chance.

            I know I've seen him in a few films, but the one that stands out for me is 'The Incredible Shrinking Woman'. For whatever reason, I must have watched that a dozen times when we had HBO. Loved it. I am afraid to watch it now.

              His Letterman bits were must-watch, and The Heartbreak Kid is one of the best comedies Hollywood has every created.

                Paul Mooney-- 79. Writer for Richard Pryor and a million other comedians. He had some great bits on the Chappelle Show, too. He's a legend for sure.

                    His airplanes were among the best too.

                        Oh wow that’s young. The article mentions a bike ride. I wonder if it was a bike accident.

                        He was a surprise guest at my wedding luncheon. Well, he appeared for a few seconds in the hallway.

                            I totally forgot he was on the Mary Tyler Moore Show.

                              He was also the wing man to Donald Sutherland in Kelly's Hero's. This is a great video clip of him and Sutherland making movie magic.

                              • Most here probably won't know who he is but, James Hornfischer - one of my favorite, as well as one the finest of the "modern" naval historians passed away yesterday

                                His trilogy on WW II in the Pacific is IMnotsoHO as master piece - too damn young - he was born in 1965

                                No Obit available yet here is his wiki entry
