He epitomised all that was bad about 80s music and fashion.

George Michael, 53.

Only thing of note that he impinged upon in my world is the surprise you get when you hear that the first DJ ever to play Wham on the radio was...John Peel!

RIP Nick Medlin (played bass for The Boys in 2014).  :(

From HJP on FB:

I have just heard about the death of Nick Medlin and am shocked, stunned and extremely upset by the news. Nick was one of the nicest guys anyone could ever meet. Nick played bass with The Boys on our 2014 German tour and also appears in our promo video for "Punk Rock Girl". My heart goes out to Nick's lovely wife Dani and all his family.

The author of Watership Down, Richard Adams, has died aged 96, his daughter has said.

Juliet Johnson said her father had been "ailing for some time" but "died peacefully" on Christmas Eve.

Watership Down, a children's classic about a group of rabbits in search of a new home after their warren was destroyed, was first published in 1972.

Adams was 52 when he wrote it, after first telling the story to his two daughters on a long car journey.

It went on to become a best-seller, with tens of millions of copies bought around the world.

R.I.P. Miguel Ferrer

Quote
Ferrer began his career in the early Eighties with guest shots on many TV series. In 1990 he scored a signature role as FBI Agent Albert Rosenfield on David Lynch's smash series Twin Peaks. He reprised that character for the 1992 movie Twin Peaks: Fire Walk with Me.

He will encore yet again as Agent Rosenfield in the Twin Peaks revival this spring.

Very sorry to hear this news. I was lucky enough to catch The Only Ones a couple of times - a very under-rated band.

Er reduzierte sein Schlagzeugspiel, bis aus der Monotonie Groove wurde: Jaki Liebezeit war ein wichtiger Bestandteil der Gruppe Can, die als Krautrockband weltweiten Einfluss hatte.
