Unfortunately for Darrell Abbott, there was nobody who could have arrived soon enough to stop the murderer before he killed three people, including the most gifted metal guitarist of his generation. As Pantera’s only guitarist and one of its main songwriters, his contributions to the band cannot be overstated. He and his brother Vincent Paul Abbott, the drummer of the band, founded Pantera in 1981. Pantera paid their dues playing the regional club circuit in and around Dallas, Texas for 9 years before achieving nationwide and worldwide success.

James Corden dedicated a portion of The Late Late Show on Tuesday to remembering veteran comedian Norm Macdonald, who died of cancer earlier in the day. He was 61.

“Some really sad news today, we have lost an absolute comedy legend, I’m sure you will have seen this in the news today: Norm Macdonald passed away today, far too soon, far too young, after a nine year battle with cancer,” said Corden. “A battle that Norm never told anybody about. Because all Norm ever wanted to do was make us laugh, and he was absolutely brilliant at it.”

Corden went on to say, “There was nobody quite like him. I felt privileged anytime I got to be in his orbit. He leaves us as one of the all time greatest comics, perhaps the single greatest guest in the history of late night television.”

Not just K-pop: Korean TV shows gaining US popularity

  Not just K-pop: Korean TV shows gaining US popularity NEW YORK (AP) — Most nights around 10 p.m. when her family heads off to bed, Carol Holaday signs onto her computer. She's not falling down Internet rabbit holes of random information or combing through social media at her San Diego home. Holoday is signing on to volunteer with the subtitle translation of Korean TV shows —often referred to as K-dramas— on the streaming platform Rakuten Viki. “It's my secret treat,” said Holaday, who has helped to subtitle 200 titles for Rakuten Viki, commonly just called Viki. Viki has both original and licensed content from Japan, Korea, China and Taiwan and subscribers around the globe. Its largest audience is from the U.S.

John Homans, gone too soon. Photo: Randy Harris. John Homans died earlier tonight, at 62. He edited features at New York for not quite 20 years, from 1994 to 2014, and because he was not a celebrity editor, he was not particularly well known outside the publishing universe. But let us assure you, because we saw it firsthand: There was nobody quite like him . A disproportionate number of the best things you ever read in New York came through his hands. The shape and sound and worldview and talent pool of this place would be immeasurably lessened without him.

The late-night host went on to recall a time Macdonald was on the show and did a bit about Micky Mouse. “It wasn’t a planned bit, he said: ‘Micky Mouse is huge at Disney World. If you see Micky Mouse at Disney World, you’re like yeah, go, kids! If you see that same Micky Mouse at 7-Eleven, you’re holding the kids back.'”

During the Late Late Show segment, comedian Ian Karmel said that watching Macdonald felt like watching a magic act “where you didn’t know what was going to come next; you were just completely in the palm of his hand.” Reggie Watts called him a “legend” and offered “massive amounts of respect.”

Among notable moments in his career, Macdonald joined Saturday Night Live in the early 1990s and anchored the “Weekend Update” segments. He was remembered by a spokesperson of the SNL team as “one of the most impactful comedic voices of his or any other generation.”

Many other names in Hollywood paid tribute to Macdonald via social media, including Seth Rogen, Jon Stewart, Edgar Wright, Whitney Cummings and Netflix co-CEO Ted Sarandos. The comic was labeled as a “comedy giant” and “one of the all time greats” by his colleagues and fans.

Never forget Norm Macdonald's hilarious story about old friend Bob Uecker .
