R.I.P. Gary Coleman, 1968-2010



Gary Coleman, the child actor who struggled with health problems, medical problems and other controversies in recent years, died today, due to complications from a brain hemorrhage he suffered earlier in the week. He was 42. Coleman was best known for starring in the sitcom Diff'rent Strokes back in the early '80s. When you search for "Gary Coleman" and "music" on YouTube, this is one of the first thing that pops up: His early '90s appearance in a music video by the band Raging Slab. This song appears on the band's 1993 album, Dynamite Monster Boogie Concert.
