    DOHA // Sheikh Khalifa bin Hamad Al Thani, the former ruler of Qatar, has died aged 84, the Qatari Emiri Court announced on Sunday.
    His grandson and the current emir of Qatar, Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani, has ordered a three-day mourning period, the court said in a statement carried by the state-run Qatar News Agency.
    Qatari state television said Sheikh Khalifa, who ruled from 1972 to 1995, died on Sunday evening.
    He was deposed in 1995 by his son Sheikh Hamad bin Khalifa Al Thani in a bloodless coup.
    Sheikh Hamad handed power to Sheikh Tamim in 2013 to try to ensure a smooth succession.

    The RIP Famous Person Thread-60fcdaed28e2cf0018905e70-jpg

    Jackie Mason, the legendary stand-up comedian who rose to prominence in the 1980s with a series of one-man shows on Broadway, has died. He was 93.
    Mason died Saturday evening after being hospitalized for more than two weeks at Mt. Sinai Hospital in Manhattan, celebrity lawyer Raoul Felder told the Associated Press.
    The rabbi-turned-comedian was one of the last Borscht Belt comedians and was known for embracing Jewish themes and political incorrectness.
    Tributes to Mason have poured in since the news of his death. Fellow comedian Gilbert Gottfried tweeted a photo of him and Mason, writing, "One of the best."

    Singer Tony Martin, ‘the ultimate crooner’, dies at 98

    The RIP Famous Person Thread-world_10_temp-1343807814-5018e146-620x348-jpg

    Crooner Tony Martin, whose career spanned from the Great Depression to the 21st century, has died in Los Angeles at 98.

    Friend and accountant Beverly Scott said Mr Martin died of natural causes at his home.

    The singer’s hit recordings include I Get Ideas, To Each His Own, Begin The Beguine and There’s No Tomorrow.


    Although he never became a fully-fledged movie star, Mr Martin starred in 25 films, most of them made during the heyday of the Hollywood musicals.


    Offscreen, he married two movie musical superstars, Alice Faye and Cyd Charisse. The latter union lasted 60 years, until Charisse's death in 2008.


    A peer of Bing Crosby and Frank Sinatra, Mr Martin sang in a warm baritone that carried special appeal for his female audience.


    “He’s the ultimate crooner who outlasted all his contemporaries,” musician and long-time friend Gabriel Guerrero said from his Oregon home.


    Mr Martin found his escape through music while growing up in San Francisco and Oakland in a poor, close-knit Russian Jewish family, enduring taunts from classmates.


    Performing on radio led to his break into the film business. His first singing role came in the 1936 Sing Baby Sing, which starred future wife Faye and introduced the Ritz Brothers to the screen as a more frenetic version of the Marx Brothers.


    As a contract player at Twentieth Century Fox, Mr Martin also appeared in Pigskin Parade – featuring a young Judy Garland – Banjo On My Knee, with Barbara Stanwyck and Joel McCrea, Sing And Be Happy, You Can’t Have Everything, Ali Baba Goes To Town and Sally, Irene and Mary.


    In 1940 he joined MGM and sang in such films as The Ziegfeld Girl (with James Stewart, Lana Turner and Judy Garland), The Big Store (with the Marx Brothers), Till The Clouds Roll By, Easy To Love and Deep in My Heart. In 1948, he produced and starred in Casbah, a well-received film musical version of Algiers with a score by Harold Arlen and Leo Robin.


    Mr Martin and and his second wife Cyd Charisse released a 1976 double auto-biography, The Two of Us, and often toured in singing and dancing shows. He continued appearances into his 90s, his voice only slightly tarnished by time.


    “His voice is more or less intact,” a New York Times critic wrote when he appeared at a New York club in early 2008.

    He is survived by stepson Nico Charisse.

    'Dating Game Killer' Rodney Alcala dies at California hospital


    The RIP Famous Person Thread-rodney-alcala-serial-killer-dating-game

    July 24 (UPI) -- Rodney James Alcala, a convicted serial killer known as the "Dating Game Killer," died of natural causes early Saturday morning in a California prison, corrections officials said.

    The California Department of Corrections said Alcala, 77, died of natural causes at 1:43 a.m. Saturday at a hospital near the Corcoran State Prison, where he was being held on death for the murders of four women and a 12-year-old girl.

    Alcala, who was dubbed "Dating Game Killer" due to his 1978 appearance as a contestant on TV series The Dating Game, was originally sentenced in death in 1980 for the kidnapping and murder of Robin Samsoe, 12, a year earlier.

    The California
    Supreme Court reversed the judgment in 1984, and Alcala was granted a new trial that again resulted in a death sentence being handed down in 1986.

    A Federal Appeals court overturned the sentence in 2003, but during his new trial prosecutors presented DNA evidence that tied him to the 1977 murders of Jill Barcomb, 18, and Georgia Wixted, 27; the 1978 murder of Charlotte Lamb, 32; and the 1979 slaying of Jill Parenteau, 21.

    Alcala was convicted in 2010 of five counts of first-degree murder and was sentenced to death.
    He pleaded guilty in 2013 to the 1971 murder of Cornelia Crilley and the 1977 murder of Ellen Jane Hanover. He was sentenced to 25 years to life in prison.

    Prosecutors in Wyoming charged Alcala in 2016 with the 1978 murder of Christine Ruth Thornton, 28, who was six months pregnant at the time of her death.

    Investigators have linked Alcala to other deaths in California, Washington state, New York, New Hampshire and Arizona.

    Prosecutors said Alcala, a photographer, would use his camera to lure victims.

    ZZ Top’s Dusty Hill Dead: Longtime Bassist Dies at 72


    ZZ Top’s longtime bassist Dusty Hill has died, the band announced in a statement Wednesday (July 28). He was 72.


    “We are saddened by the news today that our Compadre, Dusty Hill, has passed away in his sleep at home in Houston,” the group shared. “We, along with legions of ZZ Top fans around the world, will miss your steadfast presence, your good nature and enduring commitment to providing that monumental bottom to the ‘Top.’ We will forever be connected to that ‘Blues Shuffle in C.'”


    “You will be greatly missed, amigo,” bandmates Billy Gibbons and Frank Beard concluded in their statement.


    The band was on tour when it announced July 23 that Hill, who joined the band in 1970, was heading home “to address a hip issue.” Per ZZ Top’s Facebook page, Hill had said that “the show must go on,” and so their guitar tech of 20 years, Elwood Francis, filled in to play slide guitar, bass, and harmonica. Their statement noted at the time that they were expecting Hill to have a “speedy recovery” and to return to the band soon.


    The band’s U.S. tour is currently scheduled to run through the end of the year, with the final show set for Dec. 12 in Midland, Texas.

    Una Stubbs: Sherlock and EastEnders actress dies aged 84



    Actress Una Stubbs, known for her roles in TV shows like Worzel Gummidge, Till Death Us Do Part, Sherlock and EastEnders, has died at the age of 84.

    Stubbs found fame in the 1960s, appearing in films like Sir Cliff Richard's Summer Holiday, and remained one of the UK's best-loved screen stars.

    Her agent said she died at her home in Edinburgh surrounded by her family.

    The veteran actress had been ill for a few months, the agent told BBC News.

    After starting her career as a dancer, Stubbs became a fixture on the small screen in the 60s when she played Alf Garnett's exasperated daughter Rita in Till Death Us Do Part and the 1980s follow-ups 'Til Death and In Sickness and In Health.

    She was also a regular on the game show Don't Say A Word and it's follow-up Give us a Clue, and became a favourite of young audiences as Aunt Sally in Worzel Gummidge.

    She starred in another children's hit, The Worst Witch, in the late 1990s, as well as appearing in soap EastEnders, The Catherine Tate Show and sitcom Benidorm.

    Amazing career when you think she started in the '50's in the West End and played Mrs. Hudson in Sherlock (and other roles) up until 2017.

    MIKE MITCHELL
    'GLADIATOR,' 'BRAVEHEART' ACTOR DEAD AT 65 FROM HEART ATTACK


    7/24/2021 10:18 AM PT


    Mike Mitchell

    A rep for Mike Mitchell tells TMZ Mike died of a heart attack.
    Actor Mike Mitchell, who appeared in "Gladiator" and "Braveheart," has died ... TMZ has learned.

    Mitchell's rep tells TMZ the actor/bodybuilder died Friday on a boat in Turkey. The family says they believe he suffered a death from natural causes, although they weren't more specific.

    The rep says, "It was very hard to believe ... The sudden death of an international actor we managed, an honest person, a real actor, a true friend, my dear friend, has saddened us deeply. I've always been honored to be your manager. I wish patience to you wife, dear Denise Mitchell, and your children. Getting to know you and gaining your friendship is invaluable. Sleep in the lights. RIP."

    Mitchell started out as a bodybuilder and rose to the top ... he won Mr. Universe along with numerous World Fitness Federation's Fitness World Championships.

    Mitchell competed for a bunch of titles, including Britain's Strongest Man. He won 5 Masters Mr. World titles along the way. In 2010, he was given the WWF's highest honor ... the Living Legend Award.

    As for acting, he got a big break in 1994 that has shades of Arnold Schwarzenegger. He got cast in "Braveheart" because of his imposing physical presence. He went on to appear in "Gladiator," "The Planet," "One Day Removals," "City of Hell," "Life on the Line" and "Emmerdale."

    Mike suffered a serious setback in 2006 after winning his 5th World Fitness title -- he was stricken with a serious heart attack.

    He lived on a boat in Turkey with his wife. Mike was 65.
