From the Louisville Gore Club page.

What hasn't been said about Roger Corman.

This one is devastating.

There would be no drive-ins if it weren't for you.
There would be no Vincent Price without you. 
There would be no famous monsters of filmland if it weren't for you.
There would be no 1960's Gothic Horror if it weren't for you.
There would be no Lovecraft movies if it weren't for you.
There would be no punk rock in movies if it weren't for you.
There would be no motorcycle  movies if it weren't for you.
There would be no heart in the genre if it weren't for you. 
There would be no Francis Ford, Lucas, Spielberg, Nicholson, Demme, Dick Miller, Sybil Danning, Ron Howard, Dante, Penelope Sherris, Tina Hirsch, Jack Hill. And so many more. 

There would be no us without you. 

REST IN PICTURES, Roger Corman.

Dabney was absolutely a hilarious character! God Bless his family and friends. I don’t think there was a role he played that I didn’t like.

Rest In Peace Basketball legend Bill Walton aged 71 from Cancer.. 

Could have been the greatest NBA center of all time if it weren't for constant foot injuries..

UCLA footage of him is unbelievable...possibly the greatest college Basketball player of all time.

RIP Doug. The legend goes, when Zeppelin and the Butterfly were on the same bill, there were instances where JPJ played Ingle's organ for his parts on You Shook Me as Zeppelin didn't travel with an organ in the early days.

His predecessor, Lew Alcindor wasn't to bad either

Bob was a great guy and Canadian radio legend. He also attended the Golden Lion charity event in 1981, where JPJ, RP and JP attended & he won an autographed LP.
