For what it's worth, one of Joey's early girlfriends was Kay Rebecca Taylor. Kay was living in the San Francisco Bay Area at the time.

After they split up, Kay later became adult movie actress, Kay Parker. [Cool]

Steven,

i'm always very interested in just about anything that has to do with 'golden age' adult cinema.

I didn't know Joey and Kay were involved at some point. Thanks for this bit of interesting trivia !

On January 20th, Tangerine Dream founder Edgar Froese suddenly and unexpectedly passed away from the effects of a pulmonary embolism. He was 70.

I love most of the TD´s late 70s and 80s soundtrack albums and also their studio albums are fantastic. Although i have to say that Goblin´s Club (1996) is the last one i´ve heard.
Anyway, this is very sad news indeed.

I don't know if had been mentioned already that Elizabeth Pena passed away last October of alcoholic liver disease, which was a total surprise to everyone I know. I just watched Lone Star starring Chris Cooper and Elizabeth, and I remembered she had passed away recently.
