NOTE: Actor and musician West Virginia native Lou Myers died Feb. 19 at the age of 76 at Charleston Area Medical Center after contracting pneumonia. A funeral service will be held 1 p.m., Friday, March 1, at First Baptist Church in Charleston. I had the pleasure of interviewing Myers when he made a visit to Charleston for an event in 2011 and recently ran into him at this year’s Create West Virginia conference. Actors who get typecast by signature roles, especially from high-profile TV shows, often are dismissed as nothing more than that role. Myers was so much more than Vernon Gaines of “A Different World.” The story captures a bit of the man’s broad range. Bon voyage, Lou. | douglas imbrognofollow us on social media
