Update: Sad details emerging.


  1. One of the most awesomely surreal and strangely entertaining evenings of my life happened about 4 years ago when I was at Dragon*Con. One of the hotels the con is in has an upstairs piano bar, where I was sitting with some other artists, and in walked David Carradine with a small group. He proceeded to sit at the piano to play and sing for the rest of the evening. It wasn’t great, but it WAS – Carradine. RIP to an original and truly unique entertainer.

  2. Sorry to hear of David Carradine’s death. I enjoyed watching his work, the most memorable for me being the first Kung Fu TV series
