dennis hopper Report: Dennis Hopper may be losing battle with prostate cancer

First off, there’s no confirmation on this news about Dennis Hopper‘s health. 
But veteran entertainment writer Roger Friedman reports that Hopper may be losing his battle with prostate cancer.
We hope and pray that this isn’t true. 
A call to his manager Sam Maydew has not been returned. 
It will be a terrible loss for his fans, friends, his wife Victoria Duffy and his six-year-old daughter.

The “Easy Rider” creator is only 74 and, as Friedman points out, he’s always been a late bloomer.

]]>He’s best known for “Apocalypse Now,” “Blue Velvet,” “Hoosiers” and “River’s Edge.” But Hopper is also an accomplished photographer/artist and writer/director.  

I was lucky enough to do a feature on Hopper for Aficionado magazine and get a private tour of his own impressive art collection in his Venice, California home. 
He’s a class act. Hang in there, Dennis.
This isn’t really a prayer but it always reminds us of Dennis.
The river flows, it flows to the sea
Wherever that river goes, that’s where I want to be
Flow river flow, let your waters wash down
Take me from this road to some other town
All I wanted was to be free
And that’s the way it turned out to be...
