Yes, Kwai Chang Caine has moved on to the next spiritual level (once they got him down from his hotel room closet).  David Carradine star of the TV series Kung Fu which spawned a million living room martial arts demonstrations on little, and not so little, brothers and sisters, is dead at 72.

Just him and his flute.
