It’s difficult to put into perspective just how significant Dennis Hopper’s life was. Sure, he was no Gary Coleman, Cory Haim, or even Boner from Growing Pains. Dennis Hopper was a man that found success in Easy Rider and parlayed it into a million dollar project where he was able to get effed up in Peru for months (See The Last Movie).
I never loved Dennis Hopper. I never imagined him giving me fictional advice as I do with John Stamos and JJ from Good Times. However, I will remember that terrifying night when I laid in bed, staring at the ceiling after I watched Blue Velvet for the first time.
If Harrison Ford has the best weed in Hollywood, then Dennis Hopper has the best coke in Heaven.
See you soon, Denny.
