Captain Lou Albano dead at 76
Pro wrestler Captain Lou Alban0- born Louis Vincent Albano- died this morning at the age of 76.
If you’re not a wrestling fan, you may remember Captain Lou Albano from Cyndi Lauper’s videos in the 1980s, including the huge hit “Girls Just Wanna Have Fun.” Albano also played Lauper’s father in a Goonies tie in video, “Time after Time,” and “She Bop.” He was well-known outside the world of professional wrestling and frequently crossed over to work on TV and in films.
Albano had apparently been ill for some time, and was placed under hospice care earlier this week after being released from the hospital. No cause of death has been disclosed.
