Paul Walker Dies In Car Crash – UPDATE!


According to several sources (most notably: TMZ), Paul Walker has died in a violent LA car accident, an irony to end all ironies. Walker is best known for being a key part of the ‘Fast and Furious’ franchise and ‘She’s All That’. Shock and horror are currently pulsing through the internet at both the tragic circumstances of his death, as well as Paul’s sadly young age (40 yrs). He leaves behind one child, a daughter, Meadow. More news as it comes.

Tragically, this is not a cruel death- hoax, as Paul Walker’s reps (via Facebook) and Variety, have now posted the sad news.

“Most recently, Walker was in production on the seventh installment of the “Fast and Furious” franchise — an eerie reality given the nature of his death. The street racing franchise is Universal’s most valuable active pic franchise. Walker’s death will undoubtedly leave a significant void in the pic now in production and subsequent installments.”

This is just so horribly tragic.  Our hearts and prayers to go Paul’s family and friends, as well as the cast and crew filming Fast and The Furious 7, also starring Jason Statham.


Preview of Amy Winehouse’s Last Recording – Duet with Tony Bennett

Man, if this doesn’t choke you up, nothing will.

At a mere 46 seconds, the snippet of Amy’s final recording of “Body And Soul,” with Tony Bennett took  me to a smoky jazzy-blues club way back in the day…a place my grandparents would’ve frequented.  Jim in his Air Force uniform and Babe in her red lipstick and heels.

“Everybody was apprehensive as to how it was going to go,” Bennett told Rolling Stone, speaking of their collaboration.

“But she was really the best of all the young artists that I met in the current scene in the last 10 or 15 years. She was really singing true jazz. It’s just too tragic. I wanted to talk to her and tell her that if she doesn’t stop she’s going to die. I wanted to talk her out of the drugs, but unfortunately I never had a chance to talk to her.”

“What’s going to happen is that we’re putting [“Body and Soul”] out ahead of the album,” Bennett told MTV. “And it’s going to afoundation that her father started to teach all the young children not to take drugs, and all the royalties of the record will go to that.”

That is the world-weary voice of an old soul…not of a 27 year old chick that we lost too soon.

Oh, Amy.
