Sad news about Lindsay Kemp, a big influence on David Bowie and Kate Bush. R.I.P.

Kemp was one of entertainment's "familiar faces" to me, if I'm honest, from the occasional production here and there. I had no idea he was influential in other areas until now. R.I.P. indeed.

Bowie's Ziggy Stardust stage persona owed a lot to Kemp's influence on him years earlier.

R.i.P. Remember her from Carry on screaming and taking a bit of a shine to her when I was a kid.
