Oh...now his paintings will double in price...to £10 each.

That seems to point up a significant difference between Europeans and Americans. A European says: "I can't understand this, what's wrong with me?" An American says: "I can't understand this, what's wrong with him? - Sir Terry Pratchett

The great thing about Beaker is his ability to provoke while still being decorous, or at least within acceptable rules of conduct - Qwertyuiopasd

*is sad*

I learned to play guitar from Bert Weedon's 'Play In A Day'. He had a no-nonsense approach to playing music and teaching music, and he teated music as a job rather than treating himself as a star.

Still, 91 is a good age, and he has a fantastic legacy behind him.

Wow, that's quite a list of recent deaths. William Finley was a quirky fellow, but I did like the films i've seen him in. Dick Clark was a legend, although far more so to my Murkin cousins. Wasn't he a bit of a dick in real life, or is that a falsehood? Levon and Burt... :cry:

I saw him live in Bridgend...that's something you never forget!

At least people seem to have stopped committing suicide there now...if you remember there was a series of suicides of young people there a few years back.

"How is it that hardly any major religion has looked at science and concluded, 'This is better than we thought! The Universe is much bigger than our prophets said, grander, more subtle, more elegant. God must be even greater than we dreamed'? Instead they say, 'No, no, no! My god is a little god, and I want him to stay that way.'" - Carl Sagan

Skatalites double bassist Lloyd Brevett, 80, he was old and full of ganja. Less flippantly, he had a stroke in March, shortly after his son was murdered.
