California Gold host Huell Howser passed away on Sunday. The legendary TV personality known for his fun-loving demeanor, hilarious one-liners and adorable Southern accent left us with 443 fantastic episodes of his adventures exploring the Golden State's cultural and historical wonders. One of said gems is his visit to Coachella in 2008, which Hollywood Style Scene graciously offers a clip of.
