Tucson musician Al Foul dies of cancer

Al Foul had this imposing stature, burly almost like a lumberjack, with slicked back hair circa 1950s blue-collar hipster and piercing eyes that at first glance could intimidate.

But get him on stage, strumming his guitar and working the bass drum with his right foot, a makeshift percussion box and tambourine with his left, and the true character of the man came through.

I've always like Bo Hopkins. He reminded me a bit of low-key James Dean. I remember him in a Rockford Files episode where he played a lawyer who was once in a motorcycle gang. He joined Rockford in investigating the motorcycle gang that raped his sister by infiltrating the gang. After that episode, I thought he should have had his own series.

RIP
