Really sadden me to hear he got cancer. And now has succumbed to it. Dennis was almost 20 years older than me and I enjoyed his work from the beginning. This guy rode and partied with all the greats of his Era. And found his own niche in the business himself. Blue Velvet was an incredible ride of pure evil. A haunting portrayal and one that I wont ever forget. RIP Dennis, And thanks for letting us ride along.
