I looked but couldn't find, but I'm sure we used to have a thread here about, well, well known people passing on.

So, unless anyone can point me in the right direction, here's a replacement thread.

Levi Stubbs. I didn't know that much about him, but one of my favourite films ever is 'Little Shop of Horrors' and he was the voice of Audrey II. I listened to the soundtrack last weekend and thoroughly enjoyed it. I hadn't listened to it for ages. Spooky.

His voice was like dark chocolate.

It's sad about Levi Stubbs :( I saw him perform as part of the four tops when i was on holiday 9 years ago. Great music.

I loved him as the voice of Aurdrey II.

His voice was like velvet and honey. He will be missed. RIP Levi.

I know it's pretty shallow, but Michael Crichton did SO not look 66! He looked about 40! Weird!

And awww! He was great.

God, what a shame. It's hard to think of her as being 85, all I can think of is the pinup.

I know what you mean CT. I can't picture what she would have looked like. Still gorgeous though I'll bet.

Yeah. Brigitte Bardot is well into her 60s... she still looks stunning.

No - really?? Aww bless you Bettie. She had a hard life in some ways - fame, family issues and mental health problems. But she was always something lovely, wasn't she? A light amid the sleaze and insincerity that surrounded her.

RIP

RIP Harold Pinter
I found this really sad, because it wasn't until I went to see No Man's Land that I realised Pinter was actually still doing so much (probably cos most of the plays I've read of his are the early ones, so I tended to think of him in the past tense anyway). So, I just realised he was very much around - and he's gone! I find his plays strangely comforting...

Plus he was a Hackney man!

Yes,. I just saw that. I believe he was living in the states now. Of course he will always be remembered for The Prisoner which will keep him in people's minds for a very long time to come.


I guess the secret of what it was REALLY about has sadly died with him.
