Lou Albano, or Captain Lou, died today at the age of 76.
As gamers, we know Albano from his portrayal of Mario on the “Super Mario Bros. Super Show!,” which aired only one season 20 years ago in 1989.
But he was also a noted WWE Wrestling manager, with over 50 clients to his name, and he also appeared in Cyndi Lauper music videos, including “Girls Just Want To Have Fun”, “She Bop”, “Time After Time” and “The Goonies ‘R’ Good Enough.”
Mr. Albano suffered a heart attack in 2005 and his health dwindled since then. He passed away today at home with his family.
