    RIP Dave Greenfield. I was planning to travel to Valencia with a couple of mates for the 4ever Valencia festival, which the Stranglers were headlining. No concert, and now much worse, no Dave.
    Played their albums constantly as a teen, and still do - Dreamtime is one I always go back to, but Dave made their music stand out from beginning to end. From the gentle Golden Brown to the much harder Toiler on the Sea and Straighten Out, this is a part of the music of my life that has winked out, another victim of Covid-19.
    RIP Dave. Fly high.

    Willie Thorne RIP. One from my youth I'm sure he used to be on that rather odd Pot Black program on BBC2 where they had a championship based on matches of one frame. Sadly passed away at 66 which is no age really.

    Can scarcely believe he was only 66.
    I recall watching Thorne and that whole great generation of snooker personalities when I was barely a teenager back in the 80's, and he looked about 40 to me then.

    RIP Willy.

    This would also have been the generation of 'Hurricane Higgins' I guess. Plus the advent of Steve 'interesting' Davis ( nickname courtesy of Spitting Image). What a generation.

    Theo Foley has passed away.

    I had the pleasure of meeting him years ago, a lovely warm man.
