Thanks for the link, good article, definitely sums up the melancholy mood of TLL and WHTLL, but possibly a bit of over analysis in there. was too young for the original series (although caught up with it later on DVD) but loved the WHTTLL sequel, and rate it as good if not better than the first series. Loved the characters and the whole looking back theme of the series. Never forget them trying to avoid everyone so they did not find out the result of the England game!

Paul Buckmaster

A huge part of my early record-buying DNA... those early Elton albums obviously...
but he's also on 'Space Oddity' and 'Sticky Fingers'.

In this century, he won a Grammy for his arrangement on 'Drops Of Jupiter'.

While we were lamenting Paul Buckmaster t'other day, can't believe I forgot to mention that he also played the cello on 'Honaloochie Boogie'. :oops:

I actually saw Jim Nabors sing live and he was awesome.

One of my dad's favorites and my mom got him tickets to a show for his birthday years ago. Unfortunately for my dad, he caught the flu and I ended up escorting my mom to the show. The man could sing. I remember the comedian Ronnie Shell, who was also in the Gomer Pyle tv series, opened the show.

RIP

It seems that Johnny Hallyday died the other day. Not one ever really on my radar, but he was huge in his homeland.

Remember being on holiday in France and going to the cinema to see a film called Crime Spree that featured Johnny and Gerard and Harvey - the majority of which was in English with French subtitles - it was for me a really great film even though for most of it I was listening to the English audio whilst reading the French text.

Very sad news from the USA with the death of Pat DiNizio, the lead singer and songwriter of The Smithereens, at the age of 62. I've been a Smithereens fan since their first album but never got the chance to see them live unfortunately. Sometime Rant Band member Andy Burton has played quite a few shows on keyboards with the Smithereens in recent years. RIP Pat :-(

Sad news with the death of Rory O'Donoghue - the Australian musician, comedian, writer and so much more. His main claim to fame was as the co-creator of the classic Australian comedy series of the 70s, 'The Aunty Jack Show', in which Rory featured as Thin Arthur. His 'Aunty Jack' creative partner, Grahame Bond, came through the entrance at the David Bowie Is exhibition at ACMI in Melbourne one day when I was working there a few years ago. He was rapt and surprised when I recognised him and knew his name. Most of the younger staff didn't know who he or 'Aunty Jack' was despite there being an 'Aunty Jack' video clip on high rotation in one of the galleries. Farewell Thin Arthur :-(

The classic sit-com series 'The Dick Van Dyke Show' was must watch viewing in the 60s when I was a young boy. Amazingly it's creator, the comedy legend Carl Reiner, and the star of the show, Dick Van Dyke, are both still alive and in their 90s. Another star of the show, Mary Tyler Moore, died early this year. What prompted this post was that another star of the show, Rose Marie, sadly died this week at the grand old age of 94.

RIP Rick Hall. The American record producer who played a major role in pioneering and developing the famous Muscle Shoals recording scene and sound. If you get the chance check out the 'Muscle Shoals' music documentary released in 2013. Highly recommended :-)
