RIP Adam West
Well....we lost another folks. Another hero passed on to his great reward.
We lost Adam West last week, after a short battle with Leukemia. He was 88 years old.
While I wasn't alive during the heyday of Bat-Mania during the late 60's, I defintiely did appreciate Adam West's contribution to pop culture and comics by becoming Batman for the Batman TV show back in 1966. As a kid leaving West Germany, I used to watch re-runs of the iconic 60's show and instantly fell in love. Sure it was way different than the movies and comics at the time, but no less important or entertaining.
In addition to playing Batman, Adam West has played numerous roles over his long career, especially the Grey Ghost in Batman:TAS in the 90's, and as Mayor West for Family Guy.
A class act in everything he did, he will always be Batman to me.
Thank you, and good night Bright Knight.....
