RIP 'George Jefferson'

Goin’ to meet Weezy:

This is a truly fitting theme song…

Well we’re movin on up,
To the east side.
To a deluxe apartment in the sky.
Movin on up,
To the east side.
We finally got a piece of the pie.

Fish don’t fry in the kitchen;
Beans don’t burn on the grill.
Took a whole lotta tryin’,
Just to get up that hill.
Now we’re up in the big leagues,
Gettin’ our turn at bat.
As long as we live, it’s you and me baby,
There ain’t nothin wrong with that.

Well we’re movin on up,
To the east side.
To a deluxe apartment in the sky.
Movin on up,
To the east side.
We finally got a piece of the pie.

this show is where I learned that I was a honky.

I think gingers are technically “jive turkey honkys” but you’re in the ballpark.

One of the greatest sitcoms ever. RIP Sherman.

He was hilarious. I loved him in Sister Sister and Amen.

Sad to see him go.

RIP baby.

I loved that show… God Bless Sherman. Rest in peace sir…

Boss:

This is amazing:

Sherman Hemsley was known to be a huge fan of prog rock, especially Gentle Giant, Nektar and Gong.

Hemsley collaborated with Yes?s Jon Anderson on a funk-rock opera about the ?spiritual qualities of the number 7? (never produced). Hemsley also did an interpretive dance to the Gentle Giant song ?Proclamation? on Dinah Shore?s 70s talkshow, that was apparently somewhat confusing for her.

But the best story, I mean the best story of all time, is the one told by Gong?s Daevid Allen about his encounter with the beloved 70?s sitcom star. Here is Allen?s verbatim tale as related to Mitch Myers (and originally published in Magnet magazine):

I thought, ?Well, even if he?s a nut case at least he?s coming up with the goodies.? The tickets arrived and we had this great honeymoon in Jamaica. Then we caught the plane across to L.A. We had heard Sherman was a big star, but we didn?t know the details. Coming down the corridor from the plane, I see this black guy with a whole bunch of people running after him trying to get autographs. Anyway, we get into this stretch limousine with Sherman and immediately there?s a big joint being passed around. I say, ?Sorry man, I don?t smoke.? Sherman says, ?You don?t smoke and you?re from Gong??
