I haven't seen this posted anywhere yet, but for the Blues Brothers fans out there a sad one...

https://www.rollingstone.com/music/news/blues-brothers-guitarist-matt-guitar-murphy-dead-at-88-w521611

He had a long career, and wasn't as famous as other blues legends, but still a great guitar player.

Crappy so I guess they were right on his timeline....

Oddly, it looks like it turned out to be accurate even though he had heart surgery that sounded successful.  He developed pneumonia, made a comeback at first, and then his heart gave out.  My dad was very sick with Parkinson's and ended up in the hospital with double pneumonia earlier this year and I really thought that might be it...he coasted through it and came back (passed away on May 5th due to the parkinson's though).  Friggen pneumonia is tough especially if you're already weakened.

I figured his health was an issue as he hasnt been on for awhile but surprised it was Parkinson's as he didnt show symptoms during his appearances.  That's what my dad had (though Parkinson's can effect people differently).

He had retired because he was old and didn't want to film.  It's not like any of those guys were actually at the store working during the day since the show started....

Funny thing is, I read up a bit about visiting the store as I planned to check it out last time I was in Vegas.  No one was there when I was there of course but I read that of the "stars", the Old Man was the most likely to actually be there, usually sitting behind the counter working on stuff (not really serving customers but supposedly he'd wave and stuff).

My uncle went and said the store is really small compared to how it looks on tv.   The "stars" are only at the store during filming.   The store mostly sells Pawn Stars souvenirs,   it's a big line up of people walking in and then out.   More of a tourist trap then an actual Pawn shop these days.  

Also (the obvious)  it's all fake and staged and they hire actors and set up scripts for anyone on the show coming on and bringing in something to sell.

I think it looks bigger on TV because of how they shoot it.  But I didnt think it was small.  Ive read that its all taped on sound stages but also read that thats not true.  I was in October so maybe not as busy and they have lots of souvenirs for sale but tons of stuff like you see on the shelves on the show and people were actively shopping.  We actually went the day previous but at night because it says its open 24/7 but not for entry, just the pawn window.

Sorry about your Dad. My sincerest condolences.

Vinnie Paul Abbot joins his brother and are 2/4 ths away from reforming Pantera up in the skies

saw this on FB a few days ago but damn. Super huge fan of Pantera and always wanted to check out Hell Yeah (both as a Pantera and Mudvayne fan).  They often say there must be a sick rock band in heaven based on some of the talent we've lost,  but frankly it's getting to the point there's a festival going on that would kick the sweet piss out of any current line ups imaginable

the name kind of sounds familiar and yet somehow it doesn't, sounds like he was one of the last classic radio DJs of the day when they were just as famous as the discs they spinned
