Nice find. Then and now is painful to watch though, it reminds me just how old I'm getting. And it happens with a quickness.

Quote:Although CINDERELLA hasn't released a new studio album since 1994's "Still Climbing", the band started playing sporadic shows again in 2010 but has been largely inactive for the last few years while frontman Tom Keifer focused on his solo career.

Back in 2016, LaBar accepted blame for CINDERELLA's prolonged period of inactivity, explaining that his "drinking problem" caused a rift between him and his bandmates. He told "Another FN Podcast With Izzy Presley": "I can only speculate, but I believe it's all my fault. It's no secret that I've had a drinking problem. And it showed its ugly face on one of those [cruises that CINDERELLA played]. I guess that's what caused a rift… When I fell out on one of those cruise ships in front of everybody — like, basically O.D.'d — that's when the band, and mostly Tom, took notice and was, like, 'What the f***?'"

Asked if he was sober at the time of the interview, LaBar said: "No, I'm not. Which is the problem. Which is probably the problem. Like I said, I can only speculate, because I don't talk to the other guys anymore. I talk to Fred every now and then. Eric [Brittingham, bass] lives 20 minutes from me. We haven't talked lately, but Eric and I have been the most consistent of all my bandmates throughout the past 32 years. It's just Tom and I that don't talk anymore. And I can only speculate that he's very disappointed and doesn't wanna see me die. He doesn't wanna witness me dying."

Geez, bad day for CINDERELLA, another one bites the dust:

Former KISS And CINDERELLA Touring Keyboardist GARY CORBETT Dies After Battle With Cancer

Quote:Former KISS keyboardist Gary Corbett has died after battling a very aggressive form of lung cancer that had metastasized to his brain and hip.

Earlier today (Thursday, July 15), his family released the following statement: "It is with great sadness and the heaviest of hearts that the Cohen/Corbett family needs to let everyone know that after a hard-fought battle with cancer Gary Corbett passed away last night on Wednesday [July] 14, 2021

"Today is Gary's birthday. Please keep Gary and our family in your thoughts and your heart.

By the ‘80s, Corbett had become an in-demand session player in the New York City area. He wrote “She Bop,” a 1984 No. 3 Billboard hit for Cyndi Lauper, and also collaborated with Debbie Gibson and Martika.

He joined up with Lou Gramm when the Foreigner singer toured in support of his debut solo album, Ready or Not, in 1987. It was Gramm who recommended Corbett to Paul Stanley when he learned Kiss were looking for a touring keyboardist.

After KISS, Corbett played with CINDERELLA until 2011. He also got a couple of Grammys for his work with reggae legends Damian and Stephen Marley.

Wow. This guy did a lot for sports as we know them today:

Dennis Murphy, co-founder of pro sports leagues, dies at 94

Dennis Arthur Murphy (September 4, 1926 – July 15, 2021) was an American sports entrepreneur who helped co-found the [b]American Basketball Association[/b] (1967-1976) (with Gary Davidson), the World Hockey Association (1972-1979), the original [b]World Team Tennis[/b] (1973-1978), the International Basketball Association (1988), Roller Hockey International (1992-1999), and several other trend-setting amateur and professional sports concepts and events. Each of his innovations exhibited ground-breaking marketing and promotional tactics, new rules, and a style of play that forced the evolution of the entrenched incumbent. Among the many visionary rules and promotional concepts introduced by Murphy include the 3-point shot (ABA), the Slam-Dunk Contest (ABA), team cheerleaders (ABA), the first $1 million contract (WHA), and he paved the path for the ever-growing wave of European and Russian hockey players that now play in North America. Murphy and King produced the 1973 “Battle of the Sexes” made-for-TV tennis match between Bobby Riggs and Billie Jean King, who was married to Larry King, at the Houston Astrodome.

our friend has left the building:

Marcel Theo Hall (April 8, 1964 – July 16, 2021), known professionally as Biz Markie, was an American rapper, singer, DJ, record producer, actor, comedian, and writer. He was best known for his 1989 single "Just a Friend", which became a Top 40 hit in several countries. In 2008, "Just a Friend" made No. 100 on VH1's list of the 100 greatest hip hop songs of all time. Markie has been called the "Clown Prince of Hip Hop

In April 2020, Markie was hospitalized due to severe complications from Type 2 diabetes. As of July 2020, his wife and family had not commented publicly on his condition. In December 2020, it was reported that Markie was staying in a rehabilitation facility as a result of a stroke he had suffered after going into a diabetic coma.

On July 1, 2021, rumors of his death circulated on Twitter. His representative told Rolling Stone at that time, "The news of Biz Markie's passing is not true, Biz is still under medical care, surrounded by professionals who are working hard to provide the best healthcare possible."

On July 16, 2021, Markie died from diabetes-related complications.

Goes to show that no amount of Hospitalization, health care, doctors, pills, et cetera will combat the poor lifestyle habits that lead to things like Type 2 Diabetes. If you're oerweight, cut down by a meal a day and start slowly exercising and get yourself in better shape, also oatmeal and cabbage helps a lot...soda does not and diet soda is way worse than regular...just get the burger and skip the fires and drink (even two burgers with no sides or drink is better than the "meal") at the drive-thru. Such a shame, I enjoyed his talent immensely.

Mr Wonderful Paul Orndorff - TheOriginalBigApp - 07-18-2021 08:24 AM


Quote:WWE Hall of Famer Paul Orndorff, who was known as “Mr. Wonderful,” has died at the age of 71, his son announced on Instagram Monday.

Orndorff was suffering from dementia prior to his death, which Travis Orndorff said was caused by chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE), a brain condition caused by repeated blows to the head.

“Many will remember his intensity. But if I could only get you to understand and see his heart. He will always be Pop, Paw Paw, and Daddy at home,” Travis Orndorff wrote. “And as much as many of you hated him as a wrestler, he absolutely loved you for it. He was an amazing father that showed me more love than I ever deserved. I love you Daddy.”

Paul Orndorff joined a class action lawsuit against the WWE in 2016 that said wrestlers suffered “long term neurological injuries” and the WWE “fraudulently misrepresented and concealed” the injuries, but the lawsuit was dismissed in 2018.

Born in Brandon, Fla., Orndorff played running back at the University of Tampa and was drafted by the Saints in the 12th round of the 1973 NFL Draft. He never played in the NFL.

Interesting that the Logan character was originally part of the "government" persecuting others but ended up running away from the "government" deep state set up in the future to gain his freedom, finding it in the historical documents of...the American Founding Fathers! It's absolutely amazing how so many of these left-wing movies from the 70s and 80s show a completely different perspective from today's leftists--almost 180 degrees opposite; you could say many of these leftist movies from the 70s and 80s were quite conservative and traditional in their values systems.
