Moviemaker George Kuchar has lost his battle with cancer at the age of 69.
The B-movie director passed away at a San Francisco, California hospice on Tuesday (06Sep11).
Kuchar became one of a number of cult underground auteurs in the mid-1960s and made over 200 movies and videos, influencing the likes of John Waters and David Lynch.
His film included Corruption of the Damned, Hold Me While I’m Naked, I, An Actress and Thundercrack!
Many ticket-holders couldn't get into the O2 Arena show on Tuesday night (September 19th) because they didn't bring photo ID to match their booking.
An album re-release, a new song and a documentary mark the singer's legacy this year.
The actor plays the titular hero in the forthcoming adaptation.
