Ginger Baker will never be replaced. Baker considered himself a jazz drummer more than a rock and roll drummer.

Yep. He was a rough 'ol cob, but he could play like a mo-fo.

Robert Forster, a brooding, ruggedly handsome Hollywood actor who was featured alongside Marlon Brando and Gregory Peck in the late 1960s, became a B-movie action star playing lawmen and thugs, and revived his career with an Oscar-nominated turn in Quentin Tarantino’s “Jackie Brown,” died Oct. 11 at his home in Los Angeles. He was 78.

The cause was brain cancer, said his publicist, Kathie Berlin. Forster's death coincided with the release of his latest film, "El Camino," a spinoff of the AMC series "Breaking Bad," in which he played a fixer who fashions a new identity for Bryan Cranston's meth kingpin.

Great actor. He was one busy guy.

Ron Fairly, a member of four World Series teams with the Dodgers and a long-time broadcaster in the major leagues, died on Wednesday in Indian Wells at age 81. Fairly had suffered from cancer.

Fairly was the first player to represent two Canadian teams – the Montreal Expos (1973) and Toronto Blue Jays (1977) – in the major-league All-Star Game and played on four World Series teams with the Dodgers (1959, 1963, 1965 and 1966), winning three of them. During the seven-game victory over the Minnesota Twins in 1965, Fairly was 11 for 29 (.379) with three doubles, two home runs and six RBIs.

Utterly saddened by this! RIP Mr. Jonathan Miller. Thanks for the laughs! Love "Beyond The Fringe". Such irreverent humour!

I knew he'd directed theatre that I've seen, but I had to go to the NYT to jog my memory.  Turns out he directed the "Long Days Journey Into Night" that played at my theatre with Jack Lemmon, Kevin Spacey, Peter Gallagher and Bethel Leslie.  Jack, Peter and Bethel were lovely folks.  I honestly don't remember too much of Mr. Miller, but he was an extraordinary mind and talent.
