LOS ANGELES – Henry Gibson, the veteran comic character actor best known for his role reciting offbeat poetry on "Rowan & Martin's Laugh-In," has died. He was 73.

I will always remember laugh in. It was a first.

Mary Travers, one part of the folk trio Peter, Paul and Mary, which used beautiful, tranquil harmonies to convey the angst and turmoil of the Vietnam anti-war movement, racial discrimination and more, died after a yearslong battle with leukemia. She was 72.

Song of the late 60's, "If I Had A Hammer", Puff The Magic Dragon", Blowing In The Wind", and "Lemon Tree" . Some of the first songs I learned to play on my guitar.

RIP Henry and Mary.

To commemorate Henry Gibson, we should all ride a tricycle and then fall over.

In the early eighties I had a chance to work with Peter, Paul, and Mary. They were some of the nicest most down to earth people you would ever want to meet. The venue was outdoors and they had an off day the next day. After the show was over around 10:30, they went out on to the lawn. They met, talked and signed autographs with everyone that wanted to.

We got the show packed up but we couldn't leave until they did. There road crew brought out a big cooler of beer, We commenced to enjoy it while swapping jokes and show biz stories on the clock being paid double time. The crew said that this happens all of the time. Finally at almost two in the morning P, P, & M came backstage and waved good bye to us. They had finished greeting the last fan just about the time we finished the last beer.
