THRALL WORLD Obituary: R.I.P. BRIAN GRIFFIN 01.31.99 – 11.24.13

November 26, 2013

Sad news! Hard to imagine this as a permanenet move on the part of Seth MacFarlane and Co. Couldn’t they have just let Brian take a once in a lifetime career opportunity on the west coast? I mean, they did give Cleveland Brown his own show.

Producers allude the death of a main character opened the show up to new and fresh storyline possibilities.

“We thought it could be a fun way to shake things up.” – Steve Callaghan

Read the entire interview with the Family Guy producer HERE.

They have also wasted not time in introducing a new family dog as voiced by Tony Sirico from THE SOPRANOS. But since ome of the best storylines were with Brian and his back and forth between Stewie it will be a sorely missed dynamic of the show.

However the creators of FAMILY GUY want to spin it, THRALL WORLD foresees a future where Brian returns in dream sequences, flashbacks, alternate universe storylines – the list goes on – with a “Brian Returns” ratings booster somewhere down the road.

In any case – as you might expect – there is already an online petition to bring Brian back. Sign it HERE. Also a Facebook page to mourn or express outrage HERE.

Until then, we shall you miss you Brian.

Today my heart is broken, Ronnie passed away at 7:45am 16th May. Many, many friends and family were able to say their private good-byes before he peacefully passed away. Ronnie knew how much he was loved by all. We so appreciate the love and support that you have all given us. Please give us a few days of privacy to deal with this terrible loss. Please know he loved you all and his music will live on forever.

– Wendy Dio

He was widely hailed as one of the most powerful singers in heavy metal, renowned for his consistently powerful voice and for popularizing the “devil’s horns” hand gesture in metal culture.

He was collaborating on a project with former Black Sabbath bandmates Tony Iommi, Geezer Butler and Vinny Appice, under the moniker Heaven & Hell, whose first and only studio album, The Devil You Know, was released on April 28, 2009.

He died of stomach cancer aged 67.

THRALL WORLD Obituary: R.I.P. LES PAUL – Solid-Body Guitar Innovator Was 94 Years Old

Source: CNN.com

THRALL WORLD is very sad to post the following:

Les Paul, whose innovations with the electric guitar and studio technology made him one of the most important figures in recorded music, has died, according to a statement from his publicists. Paul was 94.

Paul died in White Plains, New York, from complications of severe pneumonia, according to the statement.

Paul was a guitar and electronics mastermind whose creations — such as multitrack recording, tape delay and the solid-body guitar that bears his name, the Gibson Les Paul — helped give rise to modern popular music, including rock ‘n’ roll. No slouch on the guitar himself, he continued playing at clubs into his 90s despite being hampered by arthritis.

My 1980 Gibson Les Paul Custom is the only guitar I play.
