    Sadly the 3rd part, which i thought was the best, is blocked on YouTube.
    Also the Prince story.
    Prince confirmed it years later, down to the pancakes. But the big difference between real life and the story according to prince was that Charlie was just a crap basketballer, and not that Prince was a secret basketball superstar

    Rick James himself was f**king hilarious in his recollection of those events. He died a few months later.

    Funniest skit ever.
    Charlie Murphy was a brilliant story teller but they all including Rick James made that sketch brilliant.
    I had never laughed so hard in my life when I first seen it.

    I was re-watching old interviews of Rickles on youtube, Carson, Letterman etc, and i forgot how hilarious he was. Current insult comedians like Gervais have nothing on this guy

    US actress Erin Moran, best known for playing Joanie in 1970s sitcom Happy Days, has died, aged 56.

    I had the absolute hots for her when she was in Happy Days. I believe she had a rough time later in life, something to do with drugs.

    May Erin/Joanie RIP

    I love watching the old Dean Martin Roasts (you know, the ones that were actually funny and clever) and the Don was a regular on those.

    I'll be a bit sad now every time I watch Kelly's Heroes...Crap Game and Odd Ball (Don Rickles and Donald Sutherland) blew old Clint off the screen.

    Ian Brady dead at 79. The only sad thing is that he wasn't tortured to find the bodies of his missing victims.
    With him and Martian McGuinness 2017 is shaping up to be a vintage year.

    Committed suicide apparently.

    He was the voice of my teenage years and along with James Hetfield and Dimebag was one of the catalysts for me to pick up the guitar.

    Terribly sad stuff.

    He might not be that famous on this forum but Cheick Tiote has dropped dead during training for his Chinese club.
    30 is no age for anyone to just collapse and die never mind a professional athlete.
    He didn't score many goals but he will always be remembered for this effort

    Yeah sad stuff.

    It boggles how these blokes aren't picked up for HCM or ARVD when they sign on for these professional clubs. How hard is it to send them for an ECG before they sign on?
