    Just saw with genuine sorrow that Sam Shepard - a genuinely gifted artist, actor, writer and playwright - subtle, classy, and deeply, profoundly articulate and intelligent - has died aged 73.

    This is an artist whose work I greatly admired, both as a writer and actor.

    RIP Mr Shepard.

    Liked him "Blackhawk Down" and a few others, which I am drawing a blank on remembering him from.

    Update: Mr. Yeager from "The Right Stuff"..........

    RIP Mr. Shepard.

    He was an excellent actor, first rate screen writer, and outstanding playwright.

    A seriously intelligent, thoughtful, and gifted artist who could craft words, scenes, and narratives without difficulty.

    Actually, to my mind, "The Right Stuff" is an excellent movie.

    Just recently he was in the outstanding Bloodline series on Netflix. A real master of his craft.
