That was a big part of my childhood and I'm crushed. Spongebob came out when I was eight and I remember enjoying it immensely. It will turn twenty next year.

Ken Berry

I always liked him as a kid, from F Troop to The Cat from Outer Space.

I grew up with F Troop as well. He was also funny as Vicki Lawrence's dumb-as-mud son on Mama's Family.

George H.W. Bush
I remember him as the first president, when I was just getting old enough to have an extremely basic understanding of what government is. I started seeing his face more on television, and in pictures at banks, etc. One thing about Trump that really bothers me is that a lot of my friends' kids will view him in the same way. Not that HW was any great leader himself, but that's really the first thing that comes to mind about him.

I'm sure there are some knowledgeable JFK Assassination fiends here -- is there any merit to the assertion that Bush was involved in JFK's demise?

G.H.W. Bush was responsible for thousands of deaths, mostly in Iraq and South America, but there's no credible evidence showing involvement in Kennedy's assassination.

Bill Rinehart, lead guitarist for the Leaves, perhaps best known for their garage rock classic "Hey Joe" (immortalized on the great rock compilation Nuggets curated by Lenny Kaye) and later covered by Jimi Hendrix, Love and the Byrds. They actually cut three versions, the last one charting and becoming a hit.

North America too, he sat twiddling his thumbs about the AIDS crisis like the rest of the Reagan administration into his own run as prez.

The Dynamite Kid, widely influential wrestler and miserable excuse for a human being.

Can you elaborate on the 'miserable excuse for a human being' comment? The obit doesn't say much to that end.

Constantly threatened his first wife with guns, beat various women, allegedly drugged numerous people (including fellow wrestlers). Also had a habit of blaming everyone but himself for his physical decline - which he brought on himself through steroid abuse and recklessly dangerous maneuvers in the ring. Just a rotten, bitter guy by most accounts.

What he's perhaps most infamous for in terms of backstage behavior was his treatment of the Rougeau brothers, and their eventual comeuppance on him (which occurred in my hometown no less). Raymond Rougeau talks about it here. Shortly afterwards him and Davey Boy Smith left the WWF, during which time they had their final falling out and Smith would return for a few runs in the 90's. Smith himself passed in 2002, after a long bout with drug addiction.

Bret Hart shared this on Instagram. After reading his book, I'm amazed that Bret could still think so fondly of someone who caused so much chaos around him.

That is very sad news. I recently discovered his album XL1 thanks to the excellent Retro Man Cave YouTube channel which did an episode about vinyl records in the early 1980s that featured code for computer programs on the disc, which was followed by a video showing the program playing to the full album.

Shelley also composed the twangy guitar based take on Frère Jacques for the opening titles of Channel 4's Tour de France coverage that ran for a decade between the mid 80s and mid 90s.

Love the Buzzcocks, and Homosapien is an awesome album as well.
