    Bummer and yet another one I didn't think was still alive.

    I guess he ran for his life but ran out of time.

    That article doesn't even mention Roadhouse and that's arguably his most memorable role. BTW the same disease that got Swayze got Gazarra. Is there a Roadhouse curse???

    Who knows what would have happened if Dalton didn't stop Wesley.

    Every scene he was in, he stole it. Very strong.

    RIP Mr Gazarra

    All I ever saw the guy in was "Capone," and I only watched that on cable as a kid (repeatedly) because Susan Blakely spread her snatch way better than Sharon Stone did.

    That was suggested as sarcasm, but just watch. I'm banking on Sam Elliott's red meat eating and chain smoking ass to catch the big C as well.

    I thought Kevin Tighe was the badguy on Roadhouse.
