    I would've watched Grease, but I only have it on VHS and my last VCR broke. R.I.P.

    Olivia Newton-John has died, according to a statement from her husband posted to her official Facebook and Instagram pages. The venerable Australian singer-songwriter and actor, whose decades-long career resulted in over 100 million albums sold, passed away at her ranch in Southern California on Monday morning (August 8). She died due to undisclosed causes. Newton-John was 73 years old.

    Newton-John’s death follows a battle with breast cancer. She was initially diagnosed with the disease in the early 1990s. She fought multiple rounds of the disease, which returned in 2013 and 2017, when Newton-John announced that it had also spread to her back and into her bones. Throughout, she remained active and outspoken about her illness, founding the Olivia Newton-John Cancer & Wellness Centre (ONJCWC) in the process.

    Newton-John’s career began at an early age. After being part of various musical groups from the age of 15, she released her debut U.S. album Let Me Be There in 1973, with the title track marking her first American top ten single. Her career skyrocketed in 1978, when she was cast as Sandy, the female lead alongside John Travolta’s Danny in Grease. The role made Newton-John a household name. Her most successful album, Physical, would follow in 1981. The pinnacle of her solo career, Physical was a video album, and won the Grammy Award for Video of the Year.

    David McCullough, the Pulitzer Prize-winning author whose lovingly crafted narratives on subjects ranging from the Brooklyn Bridge to Presidents John Adams and Harry Truman made him among the most popular and influential historians of his time, has died. He was 89.

    McCullough died Sunday in Hingham, Massachusetts, according to his publisher, Simon & Schuster. He died less than two months after his beloved wife, Rosalee.

    “David McCullough was a national treasure. His books brought history to life for millions of readers. Through his biographies, he dramatically illustrated the most ennobling parts of the American character,” Simon & Schuster CEO Jonathan Karp said in a statement.

    A man who knew him told me Gulager disliked James Drury very much. For a long time he refused to attend fan conventions with the other cast members of The Virginian, and he declined to be interviewed for a book about the show. But within the past few years he reconciled with Drury and attended some conventions.

    Clu Gulager, a character actor best known for appearing in horror films and westerns throughout his long career, has passed away. Word of his passing had been spreading around social media and now The Hollywood Reporter brings confirmation of his death. According to the trade, Gulager died at his Los Angeles home on Friday of natural causes, his son John confirmed the news. Born November 16, 1928 in Holdenville, Oklahoma, Gulager made a name for himself for appearing in countless western TV shows like The Virginian and starring in horror movies like The Return of the Living Dead. He was 93 at the time of his death.

    Gulager got his start on television, appearing in shows like The United States Steel Hour, Goodyear Playhouse, and Studio One in Hollywood. He got his big break playing Billy the Kid on The Tall Man for 75 episodes, later appearing on The Virginian as Emmet Ryker for over 100 episodes. His career would continue with guest spots on countless TV shows in the 1970s and 80s like Bonanza, Mod Squad, Hawaii Five-O, CHiPs, Knight Rider, Magnum P.I., Murder, She Wrote, and MacGyver. Having appeared in shows like The Virginian, FBI, and others, Gulager earned himself a place in Quenten Tarantino's Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, a movie that acted as a love letter to the era of television that he thrived in. The film marked his final role.

    Clu Gulager, RIP.

    He was a unique and talented actor, and one of the last surviving stars of television's Age of Westerns. If you want to see him give a strong performance, catch the 1964 remake of The Killers. He and Lee Marvin are excellent in it. It also features Ronald Reagan's last film role.

    I'm not a baseball fan, but Vin Scully was revered in the sport. He was synonymous with the Los Angeles Dodgers. He announced their games for an astonishing 66 years, starting with them when they were based in Brooklyn.

    Mo Ostin, a self-effacing giant of the music business who with rare integrity presided over Warner Bros. Records’ rise to a sprawling, billion-dollar empire and helped discover and nurture artists from Jimi Hendrix to Green Day, has died. He was 95.

    Warner Records said Ostin, a member of the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, died Sunday “peacefully in his sleep.” In a statement, the company called him “one of the greatest record men of all time.”

    “He remained a tireless champion of creative freedom, both for the talent he nurtured and the people who worked for him. Mo lived an extraordinary life doing what he loved, and he will be deeply missed throughout the industry he helped create, and by the countless artists and colleagues whom he inspired to be their best selves,” said Tom Corson, co-chairman and COO, and Aaron Bay-Schuck, co-chairman and CEO, in the statement.

    Short and bald and mild in demeanor, “Chairman Mo” was never as famous as such rival moguls as Clive Davis or Walter Yetnikoff, but few equaled his power or prestige as rock music officially became big business. For decades, Ostin thrived on the simple, underused idea of taking on talented and original performers and letting them remain talented and original, whether Hendrix and Neil Young, Fleetwood Mac and Paul Simon, or R.E.M. and Green Day.
