Hi I am so pleased to see that someone else was thinking about Lionel Blue.
There is an obituary on radio 4 this evening at 9 :30.
I always listened to his 'Thought for the day' in the morning and he was obviously well thought of by the presenters on radio 4 as he was part of a news item yesterday and on thought for thought for the day this morning.
Loved his jokes and way with talking to people.
Yes, will miss him.
regards Roy

I heard today that Terry Westrop passed away last week some modelers here may have known or heard of him from the model aero scene he was a World Champion pattern flyer in the 70's and 80's and produced some of the best pattern flying kits around in those days. He was always featured in Radio Modeller and Aeromodeller magazines he and Ken Binks who went over to radio sailing and still very competitive were the guys I admired in my flying days.


RIP Terry

They weren't going to tour anymore Stavros, they had already decided that at the end of the last one. Rick was already ill and was finding it too hard to carry on. Besides, Francis Rossi was 68 not so long ago! Even the last tour ended with them being an acoustic band (on stools)  as they were finding it too hard to carry a 2 hour gig rocking out.

I saw the Quo at the Aberdeen exhibition center in the mid 1990's and they rank up there in my top 4 live bands ( and I've seen a lot of bands.. ) , some people said 3 chord songs weren't rock... erm no as anyone who's seen them live will tell you they were rock ( although I think they thought of themselves as more a heavy blues band , incidentally if you'd ever said to Lemmy from Motorhead that his music was heavy metal you'd have been punched he called his brand of music rock and roll and if you've ever heard the acoustic version of ace of spades you can see its really a rock and roll blues song )

Its been a hard year for the music industry and entertainers in general , saw yesterday that Carrie fisher ( Princess Leia in Star Wars ) collapsed with a massive heart attack on a flight to LA and is in intensive care in hospital so we have to hope the grim reaper spares her

OK.  Enough.  No more please.  Can those feeling poorly please wait until next year now.  This is spoiling my Christmas!


Played some Quo to remember how they were.  I think Francis Rossi will keep going and I wish him well but it won't be the real McCoy.  Get down, deeper and down!

After having a heart attack and not breathing for 10 minutes, I fully expected Carrie Fisher to be on this list by now.

lets not forget the 4 lads in the group Viola Beach and their manager who were killed in a horrendous car crash in Sweden in February.

they might only have been young and up and coming starlets, but everyone has to start somewhere.

no drugs or alcohol was found in them at all. And they were good at what they did...sadly cut down in their prime.

but what  MORBID lot we are. It's as though we are all just hanging around waiting for the next one to fall............hope it's not me.

Jim, I think it is a case that so many of the people who passed away this year were icons and celebrities in the correct sense. The latter word is of bandied about when it should not be. Can David Bowie and a woman with a fat posterior be compared in any way?

I suppose that rather than being morbid, we are becoming almost expectant that someone we cherished and/or respected for their contribution to our lives will pass away. Sadly people of all ages pass away wether they be infants with complications or an elder of the family, and it is the same with the people who passed away this year. Some were frankly too young and had lots more to give, while others had a great innings, and their work will be remembered with fondness. I hate the thought that Lennon was cut down in his prime, but his legacy and that of the Band he formed is larger than the individual, like Bowie, Jimmy Perry and even Kenny Baker!

The way we lost Viola Beach is so redolent of how we lost Buddy Holly. Died far too young and had such potential (Admittedly Holly was further down his career but he was by no means a long way into his career)

I presume Brian (Reply 169) that this is your personal list as there are many more listed on this thread. Eric 'Winkle' Brown, Fidel Castro, John Glenn, Ian McCaskill and Jock Moffat to mention a few.
