LOS ANGELES - Comedian George Carlin, a counter-culture hero famed for his routines about drugs and dirty words, died of heart failure at a Los Angeles-area hospital Sunday, a spokesman said. He was was 71.

Carlin, who had a history of heart problems, died at St. John's Health Center in Santa Monica about 6 p.m. PT after being admitted earlier in the afternoon for chest pains, spokesman Jeff Abraham told Reuters.

Known for his edgy, provocative material, Carlin achieved status as an anti-Establishment icon in the 1970s with stand-up bits full of drug references and a routine about seven dirty words you could not say on television. A regulatory battle over a radio broadcast of his "Filthy Words" routine ultimately reached the U.S. Supreme Court.

Wow, that sucks big time. Probably the best and most influential comedian of all time and my favorite.
The guy was brilliant and one of a kind. The memory he had in his long skits was simply amazing

Saw his show in AC last year. He was referring to his notes more and more throughout his skit but was still amazing to watch. I too have old tapes of his routines. Shocking and sad.
