River Phoenix was one of the best actors ever to grace the silver-screen and this planet. It's too bad that he was taken away from us so soon. I loved River's music and his love for animals as well; he was a spokesman for PETA. River gave himself to his film roles, which is why they are so amazing. Stand By Me (1986) and My Own Private Idaho (1991) are two that you need to check out and in that order. My Own Private Idaho requires more than one viewing to fully appreciate. Happy Birthday, Rio!
River's band Aleka's Attic singing Too Many Colors. Fantastic song.
