FINALLY Kirk Douglas.

Oh really? Well shit.   I'll change that choice to Bill Pullman.

This made me snicker. I'm a terrible person.

Why close the entry period? I only have 3+ months now. It's not like I have an advantage. 
here are my ten:

Bob Dylan
Dan Rather

Queen Elizabeth 
Robert Parish
Frank Langella

LaToya Jackson
Dame Maggie Smith

Carl Yaztremski

Tito Santana

Clint Eastwood

Well Gamevet got this one. Eddie Van Halen from throat cancer. It has been a while since he had been in public. This one bums me out. I can remember back when I was younger hitting stop-rewind-play on the cassette deck when trying to figure out his songs. :cry:

One thing I really like about him is when you see recent pictures, he looked his age and was dressed appropriately. Compared that to most other 80s rockers, who apparently still think it's 1985, dressing and acting like it, still considering themselves the biggest stars in the world.

Van Halen was a HUGE part of my childhood, teen years, and young adult life.  This is really right up there with losing Tom Petty or Michael Jackson, if not more so.

We have a local photographer whose work is well-known to us. He just posted a series of shots he took of VH at a local rock station I'd worked for when I first moved to Seattle. I wasn't there that day but the appearance is legend. Eddie had just married Valeria so Darrell (the photographer) sat on these pics all this time because the on air studio became a damn strip club and bar. The band, their entourage and half naked women came carrying racks of beer and bottles of booze and tons of smoke. Radio used to be fun.
