KABC 7’s On the Red Carpet devoted a segment to General Hospital’s beloved Stuart Damon, who passed away on June 29th, and it was there that we learned that GH is planning on an upcoming episode in Stuart’s honor.

Entertainment Guru George Pennacchio, who broke the news of Damon’s death, chatted with two key men at GH long time cast member Steve Burton (Jason Morgan) and current executive producer, Frank Valentini, about working with the late Daytime Emmy-winning star who played Dr. Alan Quartermaine for 30 years.

Burton, who played Damon’s on-screen son became very emotional when speaking of his former TV father, expressing, “He was and incredible guy, so funny so caring so giving so selfless he was the rock for us as a cast.”

Valentini added how loved Stuart was by the cast and crew, even though he only worked with him a few times, noting, “he was so excited to be here and the way that he was received by the cast and the crew was incredible … he was so well loved.”

I am so glad to hear this! I hope they devote the entire hour to Alan and only Alan (and Stuart) and include a ton of clips! I like the way Y&R did tribute episodes to Jeanne Cooper and Kristoff St John, breaking the fourth wall and appearing as themselves sharing memories, but if they won’t do that format at least go heavy on the clips!

I’m so relieved GH will be devoting an episode to him. It’s the right thing to do. It’s clear his fans and his cast mates need closure. There’s the elephant in the room of his character being killed off years ago. I’m so grateful Frank Valentini recognizes this.

I think a special episode for him is totally fitting and look forward to honoring this great man.

The recent Sean Donely episode proved that they are capable of doing these tributes properly (as opposed to the ridiculous “tributes” to Lee & Gail Baldwin from a few years back) so I’m hopeful they can get this one right.

As I said before, given Stuart Damon’s musical theatre background, they might very well use the 2021 Nurses Ball for this occasion. It would beat the same old tired jokes about Lucy’s “wardrobe malfunctions” in either case. And of course, she will have to be there, as she was married to Alan for about 15 minutes.

When Gloria Monty brought the Quartermaine family into the mix, it helped save GH from cancellation. I have fond (comical) memories of the scenes between Alan and Tracy…also between Alan and Edward. Stuart was loved dearly by his cast mates. He’ll be deeply missed. I hope this tribute episode hits it out of the park.

Steve Burton and Bradford Anderson Share Disagreement with Each Other Over Vaccine Mandate; Will Continue ‘Stone Cold and the Jackal’ Shows In 2022

On the latest episode of their That’s Awesome podcast with Steve and Bradford, released over the Thanksgiving holiday, General Hospital’s Bradford Anderson (Spinelli) and Steve Burton (Ex-Jason Morgan) took some moments to address how Steve’s decision to not adhere to the ABC and GH Covid-19 vaccine mandate (which caused the two-time Daytime Emmy-winning star to be let go from the show) would affect their live shows, podcasts, content moving forward, as well as if it has caused a riff in their friendship.

When addressing listeners of the podcast, Anderson shared the the two would continue on with their projects, but that he disagreed with Burton’s decision to not follow the GH vaccine mandate.

Bradford expressed: “If you know us, and know are brand, if you will, it’s built on friendships, and like all friends, we have disagreements.  I disagree with Steve’s decision and he knows that. But over are years of friendships, we have had plenty of discussions about this and other topics, and sometimes we agree and sometimes we don’t, but at the end of the day we are still friends.”

Steve added: “We usually don’t get into decisive things on the show.  Look, I have a right to believe in what I want, and you have a right to believe in what you want, and that’s what makes this country great and we have never been about division.”  In addition, Steve was clear that he has not agreed to any interviews at this time on the subject of his exit, and that he is already moving on, sharing: “I am just grateful for my time at General Hospital and the people and the friendships I have made there, especially with the fans.  I have had an incredible life. Listen, I’m OK. I’m at peace. I ‘m moving forward and I am excited about it.  Like I said in my video, when one door closes, multiple doors open, and that’s what happened already.  I’ve gotten a lot of requests for interviews that I don’t want to do, because I don’t want division … that’s the bottom line.”

Look for Anderson and Burton to hit the road in 2022 and continue with their successful Stone Cold and the Jackal live comedy show and appearances.
