Flowers are being laid upon Mickey Gilley's star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. The Country singer and longtime honky tonk nightclub owner passed away Saturday in Branson, Missouri at the age of 86. The Mississippi native and cousin to early Rock and Roller Jerry Lee Lewis is best known for the songs "Room Full of Roses" and his cover version of "Stand by Me." He also owned Gilley's in Pasadena, Texas. The nightclub located just outside Houston became immortalized thanks to the 1980 hit movie "Urban Cowboy" starring John Travolta and Debra Winger. The original Gilley's burned down in 1990 -- but continued as a franchise operation. Mickey spent much of his time in later years at his nightclub in Branson.
