Yep the physical Vader whilst Earl Jones was the voice.

He was also this beefy guy in A Clockwork Orange!

David Prowse, the original Darth Vader, RIP.
Yep the physical Vader whilst Earl Jones was the voice.

On the ABC radio over here today they actually had an original recording of Prowse saying

"you are part of the rebel alliance and a traitor. Take her away"

then they played Earl Jones saying the same thing.

Lucky they went with Earl is all I can say.

Never understood the angst.
How is it any different to when Martin did the most blatant throw out of a pack to Riewoldt who goaled?
The only difference is that each individual goal in a soccer match is so much more significant than they are in Australian Football.
But that's the fault of the sport, not Maradona.


England. Argentina. Falklands. World Cup.

RIP Charlie Pride.

What a legend Charlie was, I have very fond memories of listening to his music, a true legend.

I'm going to get drunk today and listen to his music.

Charlie Pride was the only singer that could almost do justice to the immortal Hank Williams songs.

RIP Charlie.
You could start thread on great verses in songs easy.

One of my favourites is from the late, great, Tennessee Ernie Ford's, Shotgun Boogie. There's some great lines in it.
