RIP Sherman Hemsley

Yeah, it's old news since he passed away early in the week but I thought I would mention it anyway since it hasn't been mentioned on here before and also because he was an acknowledged big time prog fan. In particular he was a fan of Gentle Giant, Yes, Nektar and Gong but probably a lot of other stuff too. The larger world who are not necessarily prog fans will of course always remember him as George Jefferson from the tv sitcom the Jeffersons.
When you list all the qualities that you despise and you realize you're describing yourself.

Re: RIP Sherman Hemsley

A probably unknown fact about this man. I read in an article that Mr. Hemsley was a big fan of prog and Yes in particular. He said he didn't miss a tour in the 70's.

Imagine him in the makeup chair passing the time listening to Close To The Edge!

PROG ON Sherman!
