Comedy Extraordinare Phyllis Diller Dead at 95 [VIDEO]

For those of us oldsters, not only was "groovy", "right on" , and "far out" part of our early vernacular, but yet another phrase that comes to mind, that today is considered passe, is "lounge act".

She was one of the very few who could wear cosmetic surgery to perfection, and for my parents 20th wedding anniversary, sis and I got them a pair of tickets to see Phyllis Diller.  Of course, we went along to the show as special guests.

Famed Film Director ‘Tony Scott’ Takes His Own Life [VIDEO]

While he may have been behind the lens instead of starring in front of the camera, Tony Scott was a Hollywood giant when it came to his trade.

His name may not be recognizable, except for those in the tinsel town who's who, but his Director status for such hits as "Beverly Hills Cop II", Man on Fire", "Enemy of the State", "Days of Thunder", "Top Gun" starring Tom Cruise, and "Crimson Tide" with Denzel Washington, made Tony Scott a well respected "A"-lister amongst the troops.

“Deep Purple’s” Jon Lord Dies at 71 [VIDEO]

Very sad news to report.

Close your eyes and "retro" fit your way back to 1972.  Remember when Deep Purple's Machine Head album debuted with the big smasher "Smoke On The Water" blazing on to the AM radio scene?

"DA...DA...DA"

"DA...DA...DA...DA"

Ernest Borgnine of ‘McHale’s Navy’ Fame Dead at 95 [VIDEO]

We've lost another "classic" biggee!  Real name "Ermes Efron Borgnino"

Often known for tough guy roles, it was a movie called "Marty" in 1955, a film about a man who fears his looks will never invite romance, that made Ernest Borgnine an instant Oscar winning star.  His career spanned seven decades in the movie 'biz' with stops in "From Here To Eternity", "Johnny Guitar", "Three Bad Men", "The Dirty Dozen", and "Poseidon Adventure", just to name a few.

TV Icon Andy Griffith Dead at 86 [VIDEO]

I would like to believe that going hand in hand with classic rock is classic television.  The two really are inseparable when it comes comparing great programming to over-the-top musical artistry.

The "Skipper" couldn't do it without "Gilligan", "Jimi" couldn't do it without the guitar; The Beverly Hillbillies would have choked without "Jethro"; "Styx", although still sounding great today, are not the same if Dennis DeYoung isn't ground breaking the "Tradewinds" in 1961; and on and on the cycle goes.

Family Feuds’s Richard Dawson Succumbs to Cancer [VIDEO]

If you are a Classic Rocker, then you may be a Classic television junkie as well.  Admit it, there's nothing like a 30 minute "Gilligan's Island" episode to relieve a stressful day.  Growing up guys, you were either a "Ginger" fan or "Mary-Ann" fan.  Let it be known, that yours truly, was a "Mary-Ann" fan!

‘Queen of Disco’ Donna Summer Dies at 63 [VIDEO]

If you are an avid Q107 "Classic Rocker", you may have grown up despising DISCO.  Living through the era and spinning the sound on the AM dial, I'm just going to say it out loud in hopes we can still be friends:

I liked disco then, and I like disco now!

Maybe one day in the not too distant future, I'll post a photo of me circa 1978, wearing my stiff as a board polyester angel flight pants, a flowered shirt using only the last three buttons, so as to expose all of my two chest hairs!  Platform shoes with four inch heels, and the coup de gras, 57 chains dangling around my neck.  Yep, couldn't dance like Travolta, but sure as hell looked like him.
