True but was all I could remember of their songs
Chester Bennington, lead singer of Linkin Park, reportedly committed suicide. I spent a significant part of my angsty childhood listening to his angsty screaming, so that makes me a bit sad.
Well, in the end it doesn't really matter.
His wounds did not heal.
That's too easy. :>

He was in the 1979 PBS adaption of The Scarlet Letter as Arthur Dimsdale (Meg Foster was Hester Prynne) which is my first encounter with him as an actor that I can recall. Saw him in many things over the years though, (Cat People, C.H.U.D., and a number of TV guest appearances like Law and Order: SVU, CSI: Miami, The Equalizer and Miami Vice off the top of my head)

Peter Principle, leader of Tuxedomoon, died this week. Quoting a friend of mine, the band was one of the post-punk giants and the whole post-punk revival would have been way more interesting had the revivalists chosen to imitate them as well as Joy Division.
Also Red West last week. I'm not extremely versed in his filmography but all the same I thought he was great in Ramin Brahrani's Goodbye Solo. And of course his Elvis songs.

It's always kind of surprising to see how many names were in Black Hawk Down.

R.I.P. A lot of people know him as an actor primarily but he was a damn good screenwriter as well. Of all his work, I think I love Paris, Texas the most.

Maybe not celebrity celebrity, but.. Corey Gaspur passed away.
During his time at BioWare, Gaspur worked as a designer on Sonic Chronicles, Dragon Age: Origins, Mass Effect 2, and Mass Effect 3. Most recently, he served as the lead designer on BioWare's new IP, Anthem, which was announced at E3.

Damn. Am looking forward to Anthem though.

Haruo Nakajima - Godzilla suit actor for films Godzilla to Godzilla vs Gigan has passed at 88.
He was one of two actors to play the role in the original film but as I understand it became the main actor in the role for the subsequent films while the second actor, Katsumi Tezuka, took other monster parts (like Angiurus) although in King Kong vs Godzilla, Nakajima essayed King Kong to Tezuka's Godzilla.

Glen Campbell passed away at 81. I know he had been fighting alzheimers. The Wichita Lineman is no longer on the line.

Hooper had a respectable career; Texas Chainsaw Massacre was sort of a turning point for 70s horror films.

Echoing what you both wrote. R.I.P.

Just saw him in The Wackiest Ship in the Army a few weeks back, but will always remember him for Oscar Goldman on Six Million Dollar Man & Bionic Woman and Lt. Drumm on Perry Mason. RIP
