A Fond Farewell To One Of Our Favorite Prog Rock Aficionados

Thespian powerhouse Sherman Hemsley (above, right), best known for his role as George Jefferson on Norman Lear’s  “The Jefferson” and “All In The Family”, passed away today at the age of 74.  Hemsleys love for Nektar, Gentle Giant and loose association with Yes’ Jon Anderson might not figure in his TMZ obit, but that’s why we’re not TMZ.  For one thing, our office is much nicer.  For another, we fixate on the really substantial things about celebrities, living or dead (ie. their record collections).
