A friend called to inform me that his assistant's father was killed in a car accident.  I am raising the Magnus (more than once) to the family, friends and the individual.  May you rest in peace.

Ray Thomas of The Moody Blues, grandfathers of progressive rock.  It's hard to believe the majority of members of the 1967 line-up are still touring 50 years on.  Only The Stones can match them for such unworldly longevity.


Days of Future Passed from '67 still stands out as a remarkable album.  Nights in White Satin... classic!

The Falls Mark E Smith has died. I am surprised he lasted this long to tell you the truth. God bless him though, the voice of a generation and a  true legend of English music.

Ingvar Kamprad, the founder of Ikea, 91years old

and Mort Walker, the creator of the Billy cartoon, 94 years old.
