I just heard on the radio, not noticed in the news with everything else going on, Don Burrows died a week or more ago, in his nineties.

 

Great jazz musician, I'd been listening to him for a few years before I even noticed he was Australian 🙂

 

RIP.

 

Cheers

 

 

 

Jeebus!

 

He had his own TV show in the 80's, I think.

Nah.  That was Don Burke.

 

He's not dead, but his career is.

Dunno about that by I do recall The Don Burrows Collection it ran for a few years in the 70s but I'd been listening to him from before then.

 

Think I first saw him at Ronnie Scott's Jazz Club in London which would have been around  '70,' 71, he was a legend well and truly by then.

Kenny Rogers died - 81.

 

A damned good innings for a damned good singer.

 

RIP.

And somewhere in the darkness, the Gambler; he broke even.....

 

RIP Kenny

Boy did he live a wonderful life - my kids systematically destroyed all my Asterix books by reading them so much when they were growing up so I've been progressively replacing them 🙂

 

That was always the beauty of Asterix and Lucky Luke for that matter, Goscinny was involved in the later years of the latter, the humour appealed to all ages in different ways  🙂

 

RIP and thanks for the memories,

 

Cheers

RIP... It was practically a staple (own choice, not steered by teachers) in late Primary thru early High School.

Potion took him to 92 and apparently like many a Frenchman he regarded wine as a breakfast heart-starter - at 92, who's to argue ?

Could well be right, amused me she was five years older than Sean Connery who was secretly already balding  🙂

 

Yeah I enjoyed  Jason as well.

John Prine died, 7th April, always did enjoy his music. There's a lot of Country greats in particular queuing up with tributes.

 

RIP.

Geez... was just watching a doco on Youtube about him last week - heck of an innings, by rights he should have been dead back in the sixties.

 

RIP indeed...

 

Cheers

RIP.   Hard to believe he didn't win an F1 Championship.

A bunch of OBEs from that time as well - Jackie Stewart and Jack Brabham also.

Somewhat amazing he even survived, so many did not, Mike Hawthorn for example, nutter with a death wish, won a championship, died in a car crash not long after.

RIP Tim.  The Goodies set the standard for G rated comedy in the 1970s.
