George Carlin was 29 when Lenny Bruce died in 1966 — the same year he recorded his debut album, Take Offs and Put Ons. He picked up the comedic blaze of scathing social commentary Lenny Bruce had lit, and for the next 42 years George Carlin torched the fucking joint. The world is gonna feel way too chill without him.
