David Carradine

Obit Carradine

December 8, 1936 – June 3, 2009

He was Caine.  He was Bill.  He was the Barefoot Legend.

A prominent pop-culture figure, actor and martial artist David Carradine’s career spanned decades in television, film and even music. He is probably best known for his role in the TV series, Kung Fu, and to younger audiences, as the titular boss/revenge target in Quentin Tarantino’s Kill Bill movies.

Carradine was in Bangkok, Thailand shooting a film when he was discovered hanging in his hotel room closet.  Details aren’t necessary in this space, but let’s just say that autoerotic asphyxiation is no joke, kids.
