The Rabblecast has hit 500 episodes! Thank you for sharing this milestone with us. On this episode we talk about some of the recent artists that have left us and left a mark on pop culture in their own way.
Martin Landau(aged 89), was an American actor of stage, television and film, acting coach, executive producer, voice artist, editorial cartoonist and comic strip producer. His career began in the 1950s, with early film appearances including a supporting role in Alfred Hitchcock's North by Northwest (1959). He played regular roles in the television series Mission: Impossible (for which he received several Emmy Award nominations and a Golden Globe Award).
Chester Bennington(aged 41), was an American singer and songwriter best known as the frontman for the rock band Linkin Park. He was also the lead singer for Dead by Sunrise and fronted Stone Temple Pilots from 2013 to 2015.
John Bernecker (aged 33), was a stuntman known for his work on Black Panther (2018), Logan (2017) and Fantastic Four (2015). His recent work included doing stunt work for The Walking Dead on AMC.
Our last subject is a highly recognized individual in the world of films. George Romero(aged 77), was an American-Canadian filmmaker, writer and editor, best known for his series of gruesome and satirical horror films about an imagined zombie apocalypse, beginning with Night of the Living Dead (1968), which is often considered a progenitor of the fictional zombie of modern culture. Romero is often noted as an influential pioneer of the horror film genre, and has been called an "icon" and the "Father of the Zombie Film".
If that's not enough to pack our 500th episode, then we don't know what will. Thank you again for the continued support. And as always...
