Danny has lost his Kenickie…and the world already seems a bit less bright.

Sadly, Jeff Conaway passed away this afternoon, bringing an end to his battle with pneumonia, sepsis and drug addiction.

John Travolta, who famously costarred alongside Conaway in Grease, stated today:

"Jeff Conaway was a wonderful and decent man, and we will miss him. My heartfelt thoughts are with his family and loved ones at this very difficult time."

So sad!

We, of course, share John's sentiments and send our condolences to Jeff's family and friends in this difficult time.

    Travolta had tried to help him many times and had limited success. At least they remained friends through the years. Not a fan of Travolta and his greedy cult but it was good that Travolta was there for him for so long.

    Kind of sad. I was watching some interviews with Mr. Conaway, and he just seemed so out of it. I can't imagine what kind of demons he was wrestling with.

    So sad! Another victim of better living thru chemistry…illegal or prescription drugs. Drugs should be a last resort for treatment of most illnesses and conditions, not the first resort but doctors aren't either taught or rewarded for practicing any other way. Conaway died from treating a cold with pain medication and cold medicine. Chicken soup would have been a much better idea (I'm being serious and facetious)! Between his alcohol, cocaine and pain medication addiction, he had a tough row to hoe. Taking drugs (psych meds, methadone, etc) to get off drugs (and then having to stay on them forever) may not be the best option for a lot of people that struggle with these issues. He's at peace now and I wish his friends and loved ones my sincere condolences.

    Stupid trasy loser he should have died years ago. Drugs are bad kids you die or go crazy like Brit and Carlos

    I hate when ever someone famous dies, that had problems, everyone speaks out and my question is where were these people when they were alive?



  14. 14

    A hickie from Kenickie is like a Hallmark card….

    Seriously folks, sad situation. He lived his last 10 or so years practically a shut in popping pills all day long. A great talent wasted on drugs. Another sad example of why you shouldn't do drugs. Now you know and knowing is half the battle.



  15. 15

    At least someone remembers him…..

    Re: SHANDAM
    As the post said, he had tried to help him. Lots of people tried to help him. They didn't call their publcity agents to tell them they were trying to get Jeff off the drugs. Now that he's dead, it's appropriate that they speak out and share fond memories or wish the family well. That's what you do when somebody dies.

    Another notch in Dr. Drew's rehab belt. When will they pull that man's credentials?

    Re: organicgal – Hey buddy, methadone saved my life. And I thank my lucky stars for it. Although those kinds of treatments do not work for everybody, it's great that we have them out there for those of us that really need them, and know how to use them properly. And no, people do not stay on methadone forever. Maybe they did back in the day, but not now. Most people are out of my clinic between 6 monthes and a year and a half. The longest that I had ever known anyone to be on it was for 5 years, and they were a very special case. And when it comes to psych meds, my father was a schizophrenic, and he may have been alive today if the right sort of psych meds had been offered to him. But like I said, although these controversial medications are often misused and abused, it's a miracle for those of us that use them in the correct manner. And with those kinds of conditions, no doctor should EVER tell a patient to do medicine alone. It's always best combined with some sort of program and/or therapy. That's what really gets us on the road to success. But please, for future reference, please educate yourself before classifying a drug into a bad category (and I don't mean crazed internet ramblings, I mean really look into it). I know you mean well, and I know it's sad when stuff like the death of Mr. Conaway come to light. But it's best to remember that everyone is an individual, as is their specific issue, and case. Have a good day, ok?
