Too Bad,
If he had a better "base of support" in his world, he could have gotten better and had a Micky Rourke comeback, sadly not to be
RIP indeed.

I wonder how many times Travolta and him embraced each other during filming?

Even if John had the best of intentions, Jeff was far beyond any kind of help.

RIP Jeff Conaway. You were talented and handsome and Im sorry you had a hard life. I read on Wikipedia that he had a very rough start in life growing up in NYC and having had lots of terrible things happen to him that explained alot of his addiction issues later in life.

Jeff was so cool in Taxi....so sexy. Sorry he lost his way.

And please, Addicts Dr. Drew to go away. He needs a 12 step program to overcome his constant need for publicity but I'm afraid he's in denial.

Travoltas a pretty big star. It's refreshing to see a star remember their fellow actors, when the family is in tough times. A compassionate statement.

Travolta was quoted as saying "Conaway was a wonderful guy, a complete and utter drug addict, but a wonderful guy"

Shut the hell up, kisskissbangbang. Have you NO respect for the dead whatsoever? Or how about some respect for the LIVING? The man does have a FAMILY grieving for him right now in case you forgot! Nobody needs to see your idiotic posts making fun of him.

What sad eyes he had. You can tell that he WAS a kind person. It really breaks my heart to look at him. At least he's probably better off this way than in a coma, though. Rest in peace, Kenickie.
