Episode 93: RIP Billy Hardwick

The PGA website posted the sad news that Hall of Fame bowler Billy Hardwick died November 16, 2013 of an apparent heart attack. I was able to meet him very briefly this year when I was in Tennessee to see his son Chris Hardwick perform. I feel like I have gotten to know him though the the stories Chis has told on the Nerdist Podcast. He clearly loved his family. He had some amazing achievements in the world of bowling. The world is poorer for loosing such a talented and passionate human being.

Let us take the time to celebrate the life of Billy Hardwick. Here is his appearance on the Nerdist podcast. He was delightful. It is a real gift to the world that Chris Hardwick recorded this intimately personal podcast with his Dad. http://www.nerdist.com/2012/06/nerdist-podcast-billy-hardwick/

This is a recent Nerdist podcast where Chris Hardwick talks about how his Mom and Dad started to talk to each other for the first time since the 1980's. It's really bitter sweet given the current news. It is comforting to know that before his death he was able to mend his relationship with Chris' Mom. http://www.nerdist.com/2013/10/nerdist-podcast-lucky-pen/

Billy Hardwick's Miller High Life Beer comercial. "My favorite tidbit about this is by far that fact that he was supposed to have lines and then take a swig, but quickly got too hammered after several takes. http://youtu.be/h_pDPhEk440

There is not much I can say that will make things easier for Chris. Just send him lots of hugs.

See the following article for Chris Hardwick's emotional and heartfelt tribute to his dad: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/11/19/chris-hardwick-billy-hardwick-goodbye_n_4302865.html?ncid=edlinkusaolp00000003&utm_content=buffer21425&utm_source=buffer&utm_medium=twitter&utm_campaign=Buffer

Lyrics to Hold On, I'm Coming:

Hold On, I'm Coming

Don't you ever, be sad
Lean on me, hen times get bad
When the day come, and you know your down
In a river of trouble, your bout to drown

Hold on, cause I'm coming
Hold on, I'm coming

I'm on my way, your lover where
If your cold, I will be your cover
Never have to worry, because I am here
You dont need to suffer, cause I am near

Say
Hold on cause I'm coming
Hold on cause I'm coming
Hold on, cause I'm coming
Hold on, I'm coming

Lemme hear ya'll
You talk to me
For satisfaction, oh, hold on
Call my name, oh, call my name yeah for quick reaction
Yeah yeah yeah yeah

Oh don't you ever,
oh don't you ever, be sad,
I want you to lean on me, when times get bad,
When the day comes, and I know you been around,
In a river o trouble, you you you you about to drown

Hold on I'm coming
Hold on cause I'm coming
Hold on cause I'm coming
Hold on I'm coming
(just hold on baby)
Hold on, I'm coming (here i come)
Hold on, I'm coming (take my hand)
Hold on, (dont you ever) I'm coming (here I come)

Show Notes:
This week I am singing with Journey.  The URI Ram Band is playing a couple of their songs so I felt this would be a perfect time to never stop believing.  So Don't Stop Believing!

Lyrics:

Just a small town girl
Livin' in a lonely world
She took the midnight train goin' anywhere

Just a city boy
Born and raised in south Detroit
He took the midnight train goin' anywhere

A singer in a smoky room
A smell of wine and cheap perfume
For a smile they can share the night
It goes on and on and on and on

Strangers waiting
Up and down the boulevard
Their shadows searching in the night
Streetlight people
Living just to find emotion
Hiding somewhere in the night

Working hard to get my fill
Everybody wants a thrill
Payin' anything to roll the dice just one more time

Some will win, some will lose
Some were born to sing the blues
Oh, the movie never ends
It goes on and on and on and on

Strangers waiting
Up and down the boulevard
Their shadows searching in the night
Streetlight people
Living just to find emotion
Hiding somewhere in the night

Don't stop believin'
Hold on to that feelin'
Streetlight people

Don't stop believin'
Hold on
Streetlight people

Don't stop believin'
Hold on to that feelin'
Streetlight people

Show Notes:

  • This week I talk about the Nerdist Industries distributed film Zero Charisma
  • Nerdist Podcast episode 418 Zero Charisma: http://www.nerdist.com/2013/10/nerdist-podcast-zero-charisma/
  • It's a flawed movie but it is a human story. It is much like the hurt lock in the sense that the main character is trying to escape the reality of his dead end existence.

Music in this podcast is performed by the University of Rhode Island Ram Marching Band under the direction of Dr. Brian Cardany. This week: Everybody Needs Somebody to Love (Opener), Louie Louie (Closer)
