Johnny Ace



Ace was an R&B singer who died tragically, while playing with a gun during a break in his concert set. His last words were, “I’ll show you that it won’t shoot.”



This picture is actually Bobby "Blue" Bland


Yup. I have the BB King cd, somewhere.

Good call, guys.  I appreciate it.  You know your music.

Johnny Ace:



The story goes, he was backstage "playing" with a gun at City Auditorium when Willie Mae "Big Mama" Thornton took it away from him and removed the single bullet that was loaded into it.  After he continued to insist that she return the gun to him, she did, but it seems he hadn't realized she'd put the bullet back in it.

A few minutes later, after putting the gun to the head of a young female groupie and pulling the trigger, he then did the same to himself and that was the finishing act.

"I've got to be crazy to do this shot. I should've asked for a double."

The last words of actor Vic Morrow, moments before John Landis yelled, "Action!"

Two small children died, too.  Landis continued his career as though nothing happened.

I still don't get how nobody was held accountable for that.

Oscar Wilde



The eccentric Irish-born writer allegedly made a strange final statement before he died in 1900; “The wallpaper and I are fighting a duel to the death. One or the other of us has to go.”

Bing Crosby



Crosby was advised to never play more than a 9-hole golf game by his physician. However, in 1977 he played 18 holes, and afterward said to his pals: “That was a great game of golf, fellas.” He then collapsed just 20 yards from the course’s clubhouse and died from a massive heart attack.

When Bing died, world got back to a radio station before the news had broken. The DJ asked someone to quickly grab a Bing Crosby record and get it ready to play as he was about to make an exclusive announcement to his listeners.

He then said "ladies and gentlemen, I have to announce that Bing Crosby died a few minutes ago, lets remember him with one of his records".

This is the track the assistant had grabbed.

I can only imagine the mortification of the DJ as he realised what the opening line was....

Two mechanics died when the turbine they were repairing burst into flames.  One was 19, the other 21.

Wonder why they couldn't just climb out on that blade?

No, imo it would only be bad if the announcer was known as a guy who trivialized that sort of thing, meaning it looked like he was making a joke of it.  But what a great story.

I think the angle looks too steep as far as trying to get to safety on one.  That's them standing on the front of it, btw, you see in the lower picture.  One of them chose to jump and the other did not.

Seems like a base-jumping pack would be good equipment to have on that job.  No matter your chance of survival by using it, it would be better than without.

Its a true story, I remember it vividly being reported in a newspaper and being spoken about by Billy Connolly who thought it was hilarious. 
As if the first line is not bad enough, the second is worse seeing as he had died of a heart attack.

Was just reading more about it.  These towers have an emergency descent device in a separate housing, but only to accommodate two at a time.  So the fact it was four up there, is what made the difference.

The "oh wow, oh wow" thing about Steve jobs creeped me out a bit. It makes you wonder what they're thinking n their last seconds.

Those guys at Apple knew the significance of their project.  They even 'jokingly' (but officially) determined a price of 666 dollars for the product.

This man was a true pioneer in his time. Interesting fella!
