I was in a "funk band", playing at the Snowbird, Utah ski resort in about 1972(?). We were all stunned and excited when Batman (Adam West) came in, sat down in the crowd, and stayed for a full set.
At break time, we went outside for some fresh air, and West came over to talk to us. Of course I was shocked speechless into being a gibbering idiot, but I still clearly remember how he said, in his quintessential Batman-voice: "I noticed that the sound of your horn section is particularly cohesive."
He really talked that way! What a cool, unique guy!
"Crom is strong! If I die, I have to go before him, and he will ask me, 'What is the riddle of steel?' If I don't know it, he will cast me out of Valhalla and laugh at me."
He will be missed.
Next week's episode of the Hollywood Babble-On podcast should be a heartfelt memorial.

A fun show. RIP.

He also did a lot of television westerns, too. I always liked him.

There was only one real Batman, one Robin, and one Batmobile. The rest are just sci-fi copies. If you disagree, the only response is..

Enjoyed the original Batman a great deal, even though I watched it in reruns as a kid in the late 70's. RIP and Godspeed Batman (Mr. West).

I grew up in the re-run period. Still loved watching them.

I used to love the scenes where they climbed up buildings. As a kid I always was amazed they didn't fall off....

RIP the Bat! He was the only Batman I knew. Recently I saw another series that was from 1943 that starred Lewis Wilson as Batman. Way different. I met Adam West a big car show back in the 70s.
