Robert Forster, a prolific character actor who was nominated for an Oscar for Quentin Tarantino’s “Jackie Brown” and appeared in more than 100 films, died Friday in Los Angeles of brain cancer. He was 78.

Tarantino created the bail bondsman character Max Cherry with Forster in mind, and the role netted him his first Academy Award nomination.

Most recently Forster reprised his “Breaking Bad” role as Ed in “El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie,” which was released Friday, and appeared in Steven Spielberg’s “Amazing Stories” and in “Werewolf.”

David Lynch cast the actor with a distinctive weathered look in “Mulholland Dr.” and in the rebooted “Twin Peaks” as Sheriff Frank Truman.

Doug Lubahn, a bass guitarist who performed on many of The Doors’ recordings, has died at 71. The Doors announced the musician and songwriter’s death on their various social media platforms today (Nov. 24), though it appears he died on Nov. 20.

Lubahn, often credited as Douglass Lubahn, performed on many of the songs on the Doors’ Strange Days, Waiting For the Sun and The Soft Parade albums, including such classic rock favorites as “People Are Strange,” “Love Me Two Times” “Hello, I Love You.”

Marie Fredriksson singer with Roxette died yesterday after a 17 year battle with cancer.
Not really a fan but I believe the band were named after the Wilko song.

From The Stranglers website:

Pete Howells RIP

“One more has gone to join the legions far away”.
Pete Howells my drummer from the Euroband and drummer for Manchester band the Drones, which is how I met him, passed away on Sunday 22nd of December aged 64 after a long illness. He was a really good drummer but, more than that, just a lovely bloke. Some of you might have recognised him in the video of Freddie Laker. After the Euroman Cometh album, I had him drumming on some follow up tracks which were never released.
Manchester has lost a beautiful soul.
