Clint Walker, star of TV's 'Cheyenne,' dies at age 91
 

Clint Walker, who played the title character in the early TV western "Cheyenne," has died.

Walker's daughter Valerie Walker tells the Associated Press that her father died Monday of congestive heart failure at a hospital in Grass Valley, Calif., at age 91.

The towering, strapping Walker played Cheyenne Bodie, who traveled the West and handed down justice on the TV series that ran for seven seasons starting in 1955.

Walker was an Illinois native who was working as a Las Vegas sheriff's deputy and part-time bouncer at the Sands Hotel when he made the leap to Hollywood.

 

In addition to "Cheyenne," he had small but visible roles in classic films including 1956's "The Ten Commandments" and 1967's "The Dirty Dozen." He most recently lent his voice to 1998's "Small Soldiers."



 
Wow I didn't know he was still living up to this point. Just watched him on the retro channel yesterday. He can now just mosey into the final sunset. {#Sunny}  {#Cheers}

One more thing about Joe, from his son Rob:

===============================

In 2003, my cohort Anton and I were recording the next Brian Jonestown Massacre record at my studio. The record was to be eventually called "...And This Is Our Music", and Anton asked me one afternoon, "Rob, do you know any good whistlers?". My dad was always whistling beautiful tunes in the house throughout my childhood, so I said to him, "You know, my pop is a pretty darn good whistler." 
Anton asks- "Do you think he would whistle on this song we are working on?" 
So I call my pop and ask him- "Hey dad, are you still a good whistler?" 
He says "Are you kidding?? Of course I am!"
"Well, do you wanna come over and whistle on this song in my studio that Anton and I are working on?" 
He says- "Well, I have to eat lunch and watch Bonanza first, then I'll come over." 
A couple of hours later my dad shows up and Anton is too shy/scared to deal with him, so he leaves it up to me to record and produce him, while Anton basically stays scarce and kind of peaks in the control room every once in a while. 
I set up my Neumann U87 in the control room and give my dad some headphones and I sing to him the melody (I can't whistle for shit). He of course is not familiar with the tune so he needs me to conduct him on the note changes and the rhythm. 
I have this very clear, wonderful memory of my father sitting in a chair with headphones on, his hands clasped between his legs listening intently, and watching my wavering right hand closely, and hearing the most beautiful sound come out of his pursed lips. His tone and pitch were so pure and true. 
I remember looking over seeing Anton and Sarah Beth Tucek hiding behind the door, just barely poking their heads in so they can just hear and see my dad do his thing.

It only took about a half hour, and he had nailed it. Many people have thought this was a theremin on this track, but no it is actually my 78 year old father, whistling like a cosmic song bird. I don't think I ever told him the title that ended up being the name of the song. But I was so proud of him. And now this little tune is another immortalization of his spirit.

He also stands as the oldest member ever of the Brian Jonestown Massacre, which is weird.

Enjoy.

==================================

I'd share the video here but you don't want to see it It's a BJM take on High Plains Drifter, with blood and naked.

We took Charlie to meet Kevin Cole and wound up getting a tour of the whole place. That room they built for in-studios is so fantastic, no one could possibly ask for any improvements. They have a small apartment with beds for touring indy artists, a washer-dryer, place to just hang out. Legions of volunteers ripping CDs and archiving everything they can get ahold of, the main DJ booth is a fishbowl that looks out from behind the stage/gathering space that also has the coffeehouse and record store. If you had a million dollars and said "what else do you need here?" I think they'd say "we're good, thanks." Someone just bequeathed them 10 million, in fact, and it's going to programming and promoting indy music around the world, not to capital improvements. 

 


Wow, that is so cool. It is like the worldwide mecca of Independent artist.
