Goodbye, Tobe Hooper

(January 25, 1943 – August 26, 2017)

Iconic horror film director Tobe Hooper

Iconic horror film director Tobe Hooper passed away yesterday at the age of 74 from natural causes. He is best known for the classics Texas Chain Saw Massacre and Poltergeist and the television adaptation of Stephen King’s Salem’s Lot. A highly respected director, Hooper also worked in television, directing episodes of Freddy’s Nightmares, Tales from the Crypt, and Masters of Horror, as well as the music video for Billy Idol’s “Dancing With Myself.”

The horror community took to Twitter to remember the genius that was Tobe Hooper…

“New Future Weapon” is the name of the song, more upbeat than “John Wayne.” Pretty good stuff. Fan-made video found on YouTube…

New Billy Idol…live on Jimmy Kimmell

Billy Idol has a new CD on the way, and the first single is called “John Wayne.” Different than “Rebel Yell” and “White Wedding,” but still pretty awesome. Check it out:
