    Yikes! That story says he had some hits to the head in a rough airplane landing the night before he was found dead.

    Have to wonder if this is another case of a sudden, sharp head injury leading to a death hours later.

    Billy Mays was a awesome person, I can't live w/out oxyclean all because of him hypnotising me into buying it.

    Wow. The guy seemed so healthy on his infomercial appearances.

    Yes, life is short. Two well known 50-year olds gone in a week.

    Thank you for posting that, what a great segment. I'm thinking the plane hard landing had something to do with his sudden demise. He looked great on Conan.

    Social Guy, if it comes in threes is Ed McMann, Farrah Forcett and Michael Jackson. You can't put Billy Mays in the same catagory as Michael and Farrah.

    They are saying now it didn't have anything to do with head trauma, but that he had Heart Disease http://www.cnn.com/2009/SHOWBIZ/TV/0...ile/index.html

    Mays died Sunday at his home near Tampa, Florida. The Hillsborough County medical examiner Dr. Vernard Adams said Monday that Mays had heart disease.
    This last week has been so scary, my heart goes out to all of them and their families.

    Billy Mays marketing hero
    Sure it was a different form but he was the same as us. A brother has fallen. He lived to help people. He made dreams happen for inventors. He was a prodigy and one of a kind.

    He taught me something about marketing. Its not only about selling a product, it's about selling yourself.

    Best regards to his family and friends.

    Last night at about 2 am I saw his partner pitching a product and it was so sad. I immediately thought of how charasmatic and convincing Billy Mae was. I was one of my idols as since I as a little girl I loved watching commercials!

    My condolensces to his family and loved ones and may he rest in peace.
