Barbara Hale has died.  Perry Mason was like a religion in our house back in my formative years.  We were waiting for Della and Perry to ... get together... 

She and Raymond Burr were great friends off screen.  I've read they were wonderful people.  RIP

RIP John Wetton.  Veteran of King Crimson, Uriah Heep, UK, Asia, Wishbone Ash and more.

We've been losing progressive rock's finest bass players at an alarming rate lately, Chris then Greg and now John.  I hope Tony Levin (69) takes his vitamins!

Frank Pellegrino, The Sopranos actor-cum-restaurateur, died Tuesday in New York after a battle with lung cancer. He was 72. 

The native New Yorker had several notable film and television roles in an acting career that spanned over 25 years including Goodfellas (where he played racketeer Johnny Dio), Cop Land, Mickey Blue Eyes and multiple episodes of Law & Order.

Pellegrino's most famous role, however, was playing dogged FBI Chief Frank Cubitoso in The Sopranos who heads the agency's strategy in the long-running Soprano/DiMeo case.

Hey man, the Dio years weren't that bad. I actually prefer the Dio albums to any of the post-Sabbath Bloody Sabbath Ozzy albums.

I thought 13 was a great album.  Way better than Never Say Die, that's for sure.
