    He was a biker too. Good guy. He did his own riding stunts in The Great Escape.

    Great actor, but nuts in real life.

    His star was bright and then he died.

    Alcoholism.

    He had , I am informed a very tough childhood, and I suspect he self medicated himself to death.

    Died of some weird cancer or other didn't he?
