RIP Robert Osborne...

Seeing him on Turner Classic Movies was like seeing a good friend with innumerable stories and anecdotes to share.

Steven Spielberg puts it well:

Quote:
"My condolences to the family and friends of Robert Osborne who championed the Golden Age of movies to an entire generation who never grew up in the wonderful world of black and white," director Steven Spielberg said in a statement. "He got us excited and reawakened to the greatest stories ever told with the most charismatic stars in the world. I will miss all the backstage stories he told us before and after the films. He sure opened my eyes to all that has come before and put TCM solidly on the map while ensuring his own legacy as the man who brought us back to the movies."

A true pioneer. Sadly never got to see him live. I bet it would have been something to see.

Re: The RIP Celebrities Thread

One of the greatest of all time. Cannot be overstated how much he influenced guitar players for the last 60 years. Keith Richards said he lifted every lick he ever played.

Always insisted on being paid in cash. He'd wait with his manager at the side of the stage and wouldn't go on until whoever was in charge filled it up with the agreed amount.

Was working on his first album in 38 years. Wonder how much of it he finished.

A little off topic but, one of my favorite Bil Burr bits is about Chuck reacting to Yoko Ono singing.


"Your honor. I can tell you are a reasonable horse.
I am very pregnant because of what happened with Lupe.
She ate my bus accident and all I wanted was to make Lupe into a book.
I have too many anuses ahead of me to spend my life in a cigar factory."
