Abstract: The most energetic long GRBs and core-collapse supernovae may be powered by black hole inner engines. Normalized light curves of the BATSE catalogue of long GRBs are remarkably consistent with energizing an inner disk in the process of black hole spindown. A broad band chirp spectrum observed in a recent analysis of BeppoSax light curves of long GRBs may reflect the induced turbulence. Nearby CC-SNe are therefore potential sources of gravitational wave emissions with durations of tens of seconds commensurate with long GRBs.
