This day keeps getting worse for those the 90s shaggers. As Baz said, he was great in Oz. Buried in the wall and blown up. Still survived.

His son works for AEW, strangely enough.

Jan Michael Vincent was alright. He was in some good stuff but his demons got in the way and everything went to shit. He had all the chances in the world.

I thought he might only have been in his 50s, but then remember that he was in the "Danger Island" segments on the Banana Splits in the 60s. Can't believe he was 74. Airwolf was a cornerstone of 80s that Glen Larson/Aaron Spelling  Saturday teatime telly alongside Knight Rider, The A-Team and Streethawk.

Hal Blaine, aged 90. 

Even if you don't think you've ever heard his music, you absolutely have. He played drums on "Be My Baby" by the Ronettes, possibly the most iconic drumbeat of all time.

This list is phenomenal;

Someone put together a Spotify playlist of songs that use the Be My Baby intro, and it's about 250 tracks long.

First two that come to mind are Everything Must Go by the Manics and Millionaire Sweeper by Kenickie. 

Also Say Goodbye To Hollywood by Billy Joel.
