David Carradine

RIP: David Carradine 1936-2009

Posted on:  June 4, 2009

It’s sad but more and more of my childhood icons are slowly dying off.  There was Dom and now David Carradine has passed away at the age of 72 in Thailand. Star of the classic TV show Kung Fu and of course Kill Bill, he was predominantly known for roles in campy flicks and B movies but what’s lost in it all is that he was a very good, underrated actor.

Now he’ll be snatching grasshoppers from people’s hands in that great big dojo in the sky.  May he rest in peace.
