Well it's bound to happen soon - happy new year everyone :-)

Wonder how many years some of these have been on this list - may they continue to defy the odds :-P

What a thoroughly crappy day. Capped off with learning about Dolores.
Those first two Cranberries albums still get regular airplay in my house/car. Such a unique vocal in this day and age.

Really sad to hear the news this morning. Met him twice when I was a young kid, he came to hand out the end of season trophies at our football club. A gentleman, and of course a pioneer. He was never "Cyrille Regis" in our house, just "Cyrille" or "Big Cyrille". A lovely bloke, and a very underrated footballer.

RIP Cyrille Regis. He, and Laurie Cunningham, and Brendan Batson had an immense influence on football, and on me as a little lad. I can vividly remember that West Brom team coming to Roker Park. Far too young to die, but he'll never be forgotten.

Edwin Hawkins has passed away aged 74. Heard "Oh happy Day" on the radio this morning, followed by the presenter saying it was quite apt seeing as yesterday was blue monday!

Very sad news about Cyrille Regis.

As a Coventry City supporter we have lost one of our true heroes and a genuinely lovely bloke.

RIP Cyrille

The actor Peter Wyngarde has died aged 90, his agent has confirmed.

Re: Deceased in 2018

Think he died a couple of days ago.
Hard to tell, though, as just about everything else about his life is vague & contradictary, including his age.


Can also add Hugh Wilson, director of the first 'Police Academy' movie, who died a few days ago.
And for those who are fans of the 'BSG' remake, Donnelly Rhodes - 'Dr. Cottle' - also died earlier this month.
