what it is: sherman helmsley rumors/RIP
where i found it: word of mouth, confirmed by dangerous minds
For years I'd been hearing some story about the actor who played George Jefferson having walls in his house painted black, being an avid freebaser, being obsessed with the French psychedelic band Gong and buying billboards to promote them along the Sunset Strip. Well, he died yesterday and this story popped up with all the original source material and details. Sounds like fun. RIP.
