I’ve always wondered what qualities it takes to be remembered as a real gentleman / great guy..?
I think I’ll be remembered (or forgotten) as being particularly grumpy and outspoken. Sigh
Not sure if there is a clear description for it, but in my (short) life I'll always include Pablito as one of them. Some of his interviews (past and more recent) clearly show how he was.
Barbara Windsor RIP.
Ten year old me a bit heartbroken about this one... Aw, Babs... 😭🥰
RIP Brandon Bernard
Murdered by the Trump administration
I hope Trump dies a long, slow and painful death... Hopefully in prison...
Barbara Windsor RIP.
Seems like a second bout of Covid-19 took it's toll
I'd missed this back in March, one of the great Congolese musicians, Aurlus Mabélé, died of coronavirus.
Ah bollocks. One of the absolute greats.
"Blue" Gene Tyranny died yesterday, man what a genius. This is one of my favourite tracks ever. He also played on Private Parts by Robert Ashley, another all-time favourite.
RIP John Le Carre
Must have read all his novels at least twice. Amazing writer, he took you into another world where nothing could be trusted. Smiley v Karla was epic.
Loved his cold war stuff. After the wall came down and his political views became more openly expressed in the books, I thought the quality gradually tailed off (his politics seemed pretty sound, for what it's worth, I just feel he was a lot better at weary cynicism than righteous anger). The final Smiley book, which seemed to have been written just to tie up loose ends, was pretty pointless.
Gerard Houllier - former football manager of France
Albert Griffiths founding member of The Gladiators rest in peace
Just saw that. Boo
RIP... Should be playing a junior really, but hey...
RIP John.. one of my fave hip hop artists :(
No suspicious circumstances is British press shorthand for suicide?
Shame RIP Stella
I don’t know @EB the press shouldn’t speculate, this is a very private matter, Stella has left a husband and four children to grieve. Her legacy is amazing, one of the original supermodels :(
