Well that was dumb. Riding a motorcycle at 69. Bet the dude fell asleep on the handle bars.

70 is NOT the new 20, folks.

He's not dead. There's just too many people looking at him so he freezes.

I saw the list of his movies .... that wasn't an accident. That was suicide.

Nice to see him go out on a high note.

Now if only Andrew McCarthy dies. If he does,
then "Mannequin" will have it's own "Celebrities die in 3".
