I'm truly sad to hear this. Rod was a performer and a great one. Great on the mic. Been that way his entire career. He will be missed.

Oh, and that's 2 legends we've lost this year with Dusty Rhodes dying a few weeks ago.

The continual change over in the generations will always occur and we can't do a thing but grieve. The last member of my father's generation passed around Christmas and we lost another member of mine yesterday. I'm too old for this ****.

I always liked him in "They Live". I think that was the name of the zombie movie he was in.
