Lung cancer. I think he’s in hospice now. There was a lot of chatter on Twitter that he died yesterday. Islanders ended the Habs dynasty. I’m with you Kane, loved Bossy.Sad to hear this, when I was a kid the Islanders were my team, Bossy was a sniper, they had some great teams and won the Cup four straight years
After watching that video, tell me old CW didn't get at least a blow job in the back room. Maybe even more.On the Mount Rushmore of music, there’s the Beatles, Rolling Stones, Pavarotti...and C.W. McCall.
OK, maybe I’m exaggerating a little bit, but here’s a link to one of a series of commercials he did before his classic Convoy.
Bill Fries (aka CW McCall) died yesterday at 93.
He’s going to crash St. Peter’s Gate doing 98.
Let them truckers roll ,10-4!
He worked on the TVA channel in Montreal on Canadiens games (French channel). Sucks that Guy Lafleur passed also from smoking. The two best scorers in the 70’s not named Esposito.RIP NHL 1970’s superstar Mike Bossy, just 65, from lung cancer.
Best shooter of his era (closely followed by Steve Shutt)
Never thought about it or expected it at the time, but Bossy, from Montreal, was fluently bilingual.
