Jeremy Hardy 57. Never did find him funny, even less chance of finding him funny now.

Peter Tork, bassist and singer with the Monkees, dies aged 77. Definitely one for the olduns; anyone remember the sixties?

There's only one answer to that ;)

Sad news about Tork. I believe he was the 'proper' musician in the American group manufactured to cash in on the Beatles epidemic. Jimi Hendrix was the support act on their infamous "Daughters of the American Revolution" tour.

Apparently, if you remember the sixties, you weren't there!

Sad news. For a "manufactured" boy band, they were pretty talented. R.I.P. Peter.

Little Ern' was a bit tedious, being the 'Bud Abbott' of the pair.
Still much funnier than Ant & Dec though.

Except in the case of the bloke that works at the crematorium. Too soon?

I saw The Prodigy live several years ago in Ibiza, in a fairly small gig at the Ibiza Rocks hotel. It was one of the best live music gigs I've ever been too. Probably in my top 3. It's a bloody shame about Keith Flint, you can't help but feel he had more to give.
