Indeed. I should have posted that here. A bit distracted, but on their Facebook's a few friends did post about him and speak about his influence on them.

I'm different. ;)

La Dolce Vita is one of my favorites (and that Trevi Fountain scene is fantastic), though it's not quite my favorite Fellini film. That honor goes to La Strada.

This is really sad news. Even in some of his lesser-known or hyped projects (e.g. Visage) he was remarkably good or creative.

Cancer stinks!  >:(

Lesley Gore succumbs to cancer today at the age of 68. I didn't know until today that Quincy Jones discovered her.

The great B.B. King has left this plane of existence. Even the sky is crying here.

Start with 1965's Live at the Regal, and work your way through the albums he released over the ensuing decade. That's basically the stuff that made him a legend.
