Peter Robbins, who voiced Charlie Brown in the classic 1960s Peanuts cartoons, has died. The former actor committed suicide last week, his family told San Diego’s Fox 5. He was 65.

Robbins (real name Louis G. Nanasi) was born in 1956 in Los Angeles. He began acting in 1963 and was the first to play the Charles M. Schulz-created character of Charlie Brown, including in such perennial holiday animated classics as A Charlie Brown Christmas (1965) and It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown (1966).

Ian McDonald, the multi-instrumentalist rocker who was a founding member of both Foreigner and King Crimson, has died. He was 75.

McDonald died on Wednesday at his home in New York City, surrounded by family, his rep told Rolling Stone.

The musician's son Max wrote on Facebook that his father died of cancer, according to King Crimson's record label Discipline Global Mobile.

"He was incredibly brave, and never lost his kindness or his sense of humor even when the going was rough," he wrote. "My father was a brilliant, intuitive musician, a gentle soul, and a wonderful dad. He will live on forever through his beautiful music and the love of his fans. Thank you all."

McDonald, a London native, spent five years in the British Army, where he learned to read music and play the clarinet, saxophone and flute as a bandsman.

He also sang, produced and played keyboards and guitar, and joined forces with Michael Giles, Robert Fripp, Greg Lake and Peter Sinfield to create King Crimson in 1969.
