Dennis Hopper 1936-2010

Hollywood icon Dennis Hopper has died at the age of 74 from complications due to prostate cancer. The Easy Rider star -- who was diagnosed with prostate cancer in late 2009 -- became too weak for chemotherapy treatments in March when the cancer metastasized to his bones. According to a friend, he was surrounded by family and friends when he passed away in his Venice Beach home on Saturday morning.

  1. This is too bad, he is one of my favorites. My uncle passed away last Sunday from the exact same thing. Prostate cancer metastasized to his bones, it's a painful thing to go through.
