Two good movies he was in.
The Mechanic--"Bang, you're dead"

Also "Tribes" with Darren McGavin. Classic

I don't recall airwolf much but remember the guy from a flick Defiance in 1979-80.

I think I looked him up a while back wondering what happened to him. I think he got in a car wreck or something and it affected his looks so he dropped out of acting. I could be wrong

His drug and alcohol use got him into LOTS of trouble.

As a result of an accident and career loss or just too much fun?

Both. It started before his car crash. It was the main reason the show Airwolf was cancelled. He was a tad "unruly" to say the least.

I remember seeing him on Howard Stern once,

He could hardly sit in the chair without falling and you literally couldn't understand a word he said.
