This article is about Jeff Conaway, the person who portrayed Kenickie in Grease. He sadly passed away in 2011 of drugs at the age of 60 (before he was going to turn 61). We all miss him, I miss him a lot, I wish he was still alive. He was one of the most badass, sexiest, hottest actors of the 1970s, I had a huge crush on him in Grease and Taxi. It was so sad to find out that he died in 2011. I was just a little kid in 2011, too little to know much. Conaway got addicted to drugs in the early 80’s’. Another thing that happened to Jeff Conaway, is that he fell and injured his back while the filming of Grease was happening. It was sad. If only Jeff Conaway wasn’t addicted to drugs, he’d still be alive. When someone’s addicted to drugs, it’s hard to quit. His spirit will always be with us. It’s so depressing that he died. Kenickie Murdoch and Bobby Wheeler will always be in my heart.
