|1961 - 2013|
America's tv viewers went numb on June 10, 2007 and nose dived into a "collective depression" when our screens went black leaving us clutching our remotes in disbelief and shock over the possibility that Tony Soprano was gunned down while eating fried onion rings with his family; wife Carmella, daughter Meadow and son Anthony Jr.*
Make It Not Be True
The real shockwave came six years later (June 19, 2013), when genius actor, James Gandolfini (as Sopranos creator David Chase opined about him)suddenly dropped dead of a heart attack in a Rome hotel room at the age of 51.
*For the record, Chase stated in a 2014 interview that Tony Soprano was not dead and that was all.
