Ken Pitt at 96. He was David Bowie's manager in the years before he made it big. Enjoyed reading his book. Angie Bowie was behind his sacking and the appointment of De Fris.

And northwest of Pegasus
Flew into the light of Deneb

I've been a fan of Mark Hollis and Talk Talk for years. Spirit of Eden is in my top 10..... Now I hear Andrew Preview has passed. His Telarc Rachmaninov 2nd symphony is sublime. I have three copies.... main, kitchen and car.

I hate being old. Too many people leaving.

Mr. Preview. Andre Previn. Glorious musician. And comedy gold.

It does make you feel old when they mentioned the Andrew Preview M & W sketch was 1971! Seems like yesterday. RIP Mr Previn.

I never liked The Prodigy, not my thing, but this is tragic.
