Road House Blues

Dalton: You play pretty good for a blind white boy. Cody: Yeah, and I thought you'd be bigger.

It's been a tough week for the cast of the 1989's blockbuster "Road House."  You know, the best awful movie ever made.  Please, don't even try and tell me you turn it off at 1:30 a.m. when it comes on Spike TV.

Anyway, just after Patrick Swayze announces he has cancer and may or may not have 5 weeks to live, Jeff Healey (who played the lead singer of the house band) turns up dead of the same cancer that left him blind.

I'm not sure what kind of shape Terry Funk is in these days, but I'd be shocked if he's upright.
