Do like I do...
Richard Harris as well, loved him in "Cromwell" and hey, he sang "Macarthur Park" after all. Thank goodness I was wrong about Warren Zevon, though I know as everyone knows he's not got long to go.

As Joel said, "Tobacco's cool - but it kills - what're ya gonna do?"

oh no... i hadn't heard this. I loved Gregory Hines... even met him in San Francisco when I was a kid. Here's the story.

Saw him at the huge toy store in SF (ya know, the one you see in the movies like "Big" and "Home Alone" or whatever... I wasn't even 10 years old yet, and he was buying Game Boy games for his kid. I went up and asked him what it was like to work with Sammy Davis, Jr because it was shortly after Sammy died. He looked at me rather stunned, cuz there was this little white boy that not only recognized him, but asked him a question like that... so he talked to me for a few minutes.

As we were leaving, headed down the escalator, I feel this hand on my shoulder. I look behind me, and Gregory Hines is standing there. He looks at me, and he said two words I will never forget.

"Stay cool."

I was in awe.

It's my one celebrity story, and I thought it was so cool. I can't believe he's gone...

Yeah, I couldn't believe Gregory Hines died. He was only 57. And yes, it was cancer. I was also sad when Katherine died (although she was 90-something). I love her.
