One of my first childhood crushes. RIP, Dawn Wells.



Tina Louise, AKA Ginger, is now the sole survivor. I knew this would happen - she was the one cast member who despised her connection to the show, and now it's up to her to perpetuate its legacy.

  • Oh damn. Quite an iconic figure in american tv. I have it on good authority she jumpstarted a lot of guys thru puberty...

    RIP.

    Shit. Another piece of my childhood gone. Dawn brought that girl next door appeal to the role, which made her much more identifiable (and sexier) to the masses than the Marilyn Monroe vibe of the Ginger character.

    RIP, Dawn.
    I think sometimes if you try to play too technically, you lose something in the music - like you're playing for another guitar player. I like to play for people. The more sophisticated and mature guitarists become, the more they go with the feel.

  • Ah shit.

    I threw me guitar out. Why bother? Why bother? Use it as a coffee table. Because I can't play it like that.

    Sad indeed, but I was a Ginger guy myself..... :/

    Still, she was great & definitely a gorgeous woman.

    RIP Mary Ann

    Oh wow....that sucks. I remember her being on talk shows in the mid 90's and she still looked amazing. She was beautiful for sure.
