David Carradine, master of the fu, has died at age 72 in a hotel room in Bangkok where he was working on a film. No cause of death has been established completely as one Thai paper is calling it a hanging suicide–which I’m not buying until somebody else confirms it. Anyway, it’s tragic however it happened.
After conferring with our resident Keeper of the Fu, Doc Ezra, we’ve picked a couple of quick bookend things to remember him by. First–and most obviously–Caine.
I thought about saying something about you snatching the pebble from the hand of reality or something, but I think that would have pissed you off. So instead I’ll just say: thanks for everything, David.
