2023 Obituary


Recommended Posts

British-Kenyan singer Roger Whittaker, at 87. He had a big following in Germany since his style fit well into the popular Schlager category, to the point he also sang in German though he didn't understand it. My parents had a record of a local concert, but with English texts; I still know some of them by heart 40 years later.

RIP Ducky; Illya Kuryakin, Maximilian Nexor; "Dispersal", David McCallum.  I really was starting to believe him immortal.

Ah, that was the man with the recognizable face I met at the Royal Opera House. But I thought I had seen him in The Great Escape or in Colditz.

Rest in Peace.

David McCallum was in the Great Escape, one of the best WW2 movies ever made. He was also in Man From Uncle as well.

I saw him in 2010, but I thought he looked too young to have starred in The Great Escape.

I'd bet that it was alcohol or other drug related. 

I saw a media report years ago that he went to rehab for a prescription painkiller addiction.
