OHH right, "the unknown comic"! Paperbag with eye cut outs, I wonder if youtube has any takes on that guy on the gong show.

Probably one of first movies I seen Don in was Kelly's Heros, was kid home sick CTV had afternoon movies. Also got kick out of him on those Dean Martin Roasts.

My condolences to his Family & Friends, go rest now Don.

Sad news. I enjoy TSO's music and have seen them live a couple of times, quite the experience. RIP Paul

J. Geils last week. J. Geils Band from the early 70's, a great rock/blues band and if you liked harmonica, they had a great player. Their radio fame came in the 80's.

My condolences to Her Family and Friends, rest in peace.

Interesting how 2 characters in tv show can go 2 very different directions.
Erin went one way & Ron went behind the camera with huge success.

Gregg Allman at age 69. Very young indeed compared to those I work with.
Thank you for all great sound tracks for our lives.

Lord, I was born a ramblin' man
Tryin' to make a livin' and doin' the best I can
And when it's time for leavin'
I hope you'll understand
That I was born a ramblin' man

My father was a gambler down in Georgia
He wound up on the wrong end of a gun
And I was born in the back seat of a Greyhound bus
Rollin' down highway forty-one

Lord, I was born a ramblin' man
Tryin' to make a livin' and doin' the best I can
And when it's time for leavin'
I hope you'll understand
That I was born a ramblin' man
I'm on my way to New Orleans this mornin'
I'm leavin' out of Nashville, Tennessee
They're always having a good time down on the bayou
Lord, them Delta women think the world of me

Lord, I was born a ramblin' man
Tryin' to make a livin' and doin' the best I can
And when it's time for leavin'
I hope you'll understand
That I was born a ramblin' man

Lord, I was born a ramblin' man
Lord, I was born a ramblin' man
Lord, I was born a ramblin' man

May condolences to his Family and Friends, may you rest in peace
