We missed Robert Sorrells too, probably because there was nothing in the news about his death.

Almost all the major rock stars are over 70 and will probably die in the next ten years. The younger generations have just never replaced those guys.

Actor Sid Haig (Devil's Rejects, Jackie Brown).

I always wanted him to play Hugo Strange in a Batman movie.

^Haig was a cool dude. As I mentioned in the horror thread, I met him at a horror con and saw or heard him a few times. He was in so many.

Wow, I wish I could have met him. He seemed like an awesome dude, and he was always willing to give interviews. His career goes back a long time, he was in Diamonds Are Forever and the sixties Batman for example. RIP!!!

Man, I just met Mr Haig a year ago at a show in Massachusetts and got a picture with him. He was polite but seemed very tired.

When I met him and got a couple autographs, he was fresh off Devil's Rejects and pretty spry. He struck me as a straight shooter. I remember in their panel, he and Bill Mosley were just chatting about modern horror and Haig outright called out the then-popular Haute Tension as a cheat. It was unusual to hear an actor bad mouth another movie. He also signed my Captain Spaulding photo with "f**k you!" He wasn't mad at me or anything, that's the line he says at the moment in the photo (killing the shoplifter). In retrospect, I should've asked for another line since it makes me leery to display that one.

Sounds like a great story. Makes me all the more sad that I never got to meet the guy before he departed this world.

My boss told me about this at work today. Really sucks to know he's gone.

Well, I change out my signed photos every couple weeks (basically when I dust the wall I keep that frame on). It has been in rotation, but at first I didn't want it up when my grandmother was still around. Now, I more try to avoid putting it up if I know the pastor or others from the church are likely to visit during that fortnight.

Remind your pastor that even Jesus was known to kick over tables and chase motherfuckers around with a whip.
