He drove past in his Corvette, turned around, and returned as she was walking down the street.

He was a strong supporter of free expression, and some of his ideas were conveyed via his music. Among his records with his band “Mothers of Invention” are Who Are the Brain Police?, Valley Girl, Stairway to Heaven, and I Don’t Wanna Get Drafted.

She became highly successful after starring in the hit sitcom “Charlie’s Angels,” and being married to Lee Majors, who appeared in “The Six Million Dollar Man,” was also a plus. She and Lee separated six years later, and unhappy of being labelled a “sex symbol,” she quit “Charlie’s Angels” and featured in “The Burning Bed,” a more serious part. She died of cancer at the age of 62, although she was surrounded by Ryan O’Neal, whom she had been with for the greater part of 29 years.
