R.I.P. Jeff Conaway

Sad news to report. Jeff Conaway, the actor who played the iconic role of Kenickie in Grease, has passed away at the age of 60 due to pneumonia, which attacked his frail drug abused body. It is a sad moment and I think most people will be digging out their Grease DVD in honour of a life that had such promise and potential but was unfortunately derailed by addiction. John Travolta, his co-star in the film, remembered him by saying he was a “wonderful and decent man and we will miss him.” Truer words could not be said. Sleep well.
