    Default The Celebrity Bucket List(Passages, Memorials and Tributes)

    From time to time we see a celebrity who has passed. Those threads usually have a short lifespan, so let's make a spot and keep it updated as we see a new name added. So I'll 'kick' this off with a distinguished veteran.

    Today, we say our goodbye to: Actor Ernest Borgnine dies at 95 - CBS News

    Thought about that, decided that while the name is more accurate, I'd title it this way.

    So, celebrity may be a big word, but does Rodney King fit?

    Yes, people in the news or that have had notoriety. He qualifies because he's a historic figure. Sports figures, pols, etc.

    Yeah! I thought this thread would be about celebs I want to do before I or they kick they bucket ... mostly before I do, because if they're that close, I probably wouldn't want to do them. Except for Karen Allen. And Mia Sara. I'll do them, I don't care how old either of them are or if my wife is looking.

    Sorry ... goes entirely against the spirit of the thread.

    But Earnest Borgnine was a funny guy -- I think he'd have appreciated it.

    I feel stupid for having to do a Bing search to find out who those ladies are. I hadn't heard of either.

    But Earnest Borgnine was a funny guy -- I think he'd have appreciated it.
    He was especially cool because he did all sorts of roles and wasn't typecast.

    Sylvester Stallone's Son Found Dead in L.A.

    LOS ANGELES – The 36-year-old son of Sylvester Stallone was found dead in his Los Angeles home, and authorities were investigating the cause, a publicist and authorities said.

    Sage Stallone was found unresponsive by an employee and a relative on Friday. There were no signs of foul play or trauma, and no suicide note was found, Assistant Chief Coroner Ed Winter said.

    "Sylvester Stallone is devastated and grief-stricken over the sudden loss of his son," publicist Michelle Bega said in a statement. "His compassion and thoughts are with Sage's mother, Sasha."

    He was found Friday afternoon at his home on Mullholland Drive in the Studio City area, and police arrived and confirmed he was dead, Mr. Winter said.

    Prescription bottles were recovered in the investigation, but Mr. Winter could not say what kind or how many, and whether they had a role in his death. Mr. Winter said an autopsy would be performed in the next few days and investigators would look into Mr. Stallone's medical history, but a cause of death was likely to take several weeks while toxicology tests are performed.

    George Braunstein, an attorney who has represented Sage Stallone for 15 years, said friends and acquaintances had become concerned because they hadn't heard from Mr. Stallone in the past day, Mr. Braunstein said. He said the employee who found the body was a housekeeper.

    Sylvester Stallone appeared Thursday at Comic-Con, the San Diego pop culture festival, to promote his upcoming film "Expendables 2" with friend and co-star Arnold Schwarzenegger. It was not clear whether he had remained at the convention or had returned to Los Angeles Friday.

    Sage Moonblood Stallone was the oldest of Sylvester Stallone's children and co-starred with his father in two films. He was the first of two sons Mr. Stallone had with first wife Sasha Czack.

    Sage Stallone made his acting debut in 1990's "Rocky V" and also appeared with his father in 1996's "Daylight."

    Also in 1996, Sage Stallone and veteran film editor Bob Murawski co-founded Grindhouse Releasing, a company dedicated to preserving and promoting the B-movies and exploitation films of the 1970s and 80s.

    "He was very respectful of all the actors in all the movies," Mr. Braunstein said. "You couldn't mention a movie that he didn't know everything about."

    Sage Stallone also directed the 2006 short "Vic," which screened at the Palm Springs Film Festival.

    Mr. Braunstein said Mr. Stallone was planning on getting married for the first time, and had frequent requests to work on films.

    "He was a full of life filmmaker with his whole future ahead of him," Mr. Braunstein said. "He was just very up and enthusiastic and positive."

    Mr. Braunstein said Sage Stallone greatly admired his father but was working hard to make his own name in the film industry.

    Funk Brothers bassist Bob Babbitt dies at 74 - MSN Music News

    Funk Brothers bassist Bob Babbitt dies at 74
    July 16, 2012, 6:03 PM EST

    RollingStone.com

    Bob Babbitt, the Motown studio bassist who played on hits including Smokey Robinson and the Miracles' "Tears of a Clown" and the Temptations' "Ball of Confusion (That's What the World Is Today)," died Sunday in Nashville after suffering complications from brain cancer, his spokesperson confirmed to Rolling Stone. He was 74.

    Born on Nov. 26, 1937, Babbitt grew up in Pittsburgh before moving to Detroit, where he began playing bass in the late '50s. He joined Stevie Wonder's touring band in 1966. One year later, Babbitt was invited to join Motown's house band, the Funk Brothers, after Motown bassist James Jamerson broke his hand.


    In that new role, Babbitt added thick, funky bass lines to hits by the Jackson 5, Stevie Wonder's "Sign, Sealed, Delivered (I'm Yours)" and "We Can Work it Out," and half of Marvin Gaye's 1971 LP, "What's Going On."

    After leaving Motown in 1972, Babbitt recorded with a diverse group of acts, including Bette Midler, Bonnie Raitt and Frank Sinatra. He scored 25 gold and platinum records in his career and played on more than 200 Top 40 hits, ranging from Gladys Knight and the Pips' "Midnight Train to Georgia" to Elton John's "Mama Can't Buy You Love."

    More recently, Babbitt was presented with a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award in 2004, and he played on Phil Collins' 2010 album, "Going Back."
