It is not just the older generation of musicians now which is all the more scary.
Played Another music in a different kitchen this morning. Memories of John Peel playing tracks from that album came back. I used to take them.

R.I.P. Ray Sawyer.
Sad news. I saw the current line up of Dr Hook last year and with him in it back in 77. Have some their 70s albums.

There is already an obituary thread called 'bring out yer dead'.
Maybe these posts should be transfered?

Well this thread is up to page 49 now, maybe it should be the other way round?

That thread should be deleted as in bad taste. This thread has been up for some years and correct place to post obits with respect.
