R.I.P. David Eddings and David Carradine

David Eddings, who in tandem with his late wife Leigh managed to garner both commercial and critical success with several series of best-selling novels, has passed away at the age of 77. Too bad, he was a helluva writer and a good man.

In unrelated news, Kung Fu star David Carradine has been found dead in a Bangkok hotel room. Thai police told the BBC the 72-year-old was found by a hotel maid sitting in a wardrobe with a rope around his neck and genitals on Thursday morning. An apparent suicide, he was in town filming a new movie, so no idea what happened or why. Weird...

In continued unrelated news, Koko Taylor, the Grammy Award-winning blues veteran dubbed the Queen of the Blues, has died at the age of 80. Fifty-some years in the business, man.

I'll miss all of these, but I'll miss Koko most of all.
