Actor Peter Boyle Dies at 71

I have no music to post right now (probably later on today though) but I just found out Peter Boyle died last night. I'm very saddened by the news, he was always entertaining no matter what he was doing. In addition to being a great actor he was also one of the all-time great Television Franks (up there with Frank Costanza and TV's Frank from MST3K) and he will be missed. Everyone should honor him today by watching Young Frankenstein or Taxi Driver, or any of the numerous things he appeared in. You could even catch a Raymond repeat on one of the several channels it comes on.

OH Wow! That's too bad. He was really a great actor and had some fantastic roles over the years. One of my personal performances of his was when he guest starred on the X-Files in the episode "Clyde Bruckman's Final Repose". He was phenomenal in that one. Sorry to see this guy go. I wish his family well.

This is very sad. Mr. Boyle was great in everything he was in, and besides his part in Young Frankenstein, I really liked his role in Outland. He didn't play the part as a truly evil man, but it was all there. Very underated performer.
