Oh no, not Kenicke! Sad news out of Hollywood today. Actor Jeff Conaway has died from drug related causes. The actor was best known from his roles on the TV show “Taxi” as well as in the movie “Grease.” Unfortunately, his off-screen drug problems overshadowed his acting career and it ultimately cost him his life. I met Jeff Conaway on several occasions over the years and he was always a really cool guy. We bonded over the fact that both of our names are Jeff (though spelled differently) and it was always a pleasure to see him. RIP, Jeff! A hickey from Kenicke will always be like a Hallmark card!
