So Long, Wheeler and Kenickie

From the celebrity files comes word (not surprisingly) that Jeff Conaway, who most famously portrayed Bobby Wheeler on "Taxi" and Kenickie in "Grease", has died at the age of 60 (thanks, Stuck in the 80's and AP).

I'm first processing that Conaway was 60.  The fact that he passed away comes as no shock, given his addictions and the struggles therein.

We choose to remember him in two ways...

1) His most famous line from "Grease" (in my opinion): "A hickie from Kenickie is like a Hallmark card, when you only care enough to send the very best!"


2) "Slow down" (at 4:17)
