    responsible for one of the most famous intros in popular music

    I only learned of him a few months back.
    Probably the greatest difference ever in the entire history of the entertainment industry between his fame and his work IMO.
    And a pretty cool likeable guy. He featured in a drumming programme on the Sky Arts channel that I stumbled across. That whole 'wrecking crew' gang are very significant people.

    Richie (ruin) Ryan. Made it to 90.


    He did a decent job at a time of great financial stress through the oil crisis.

    Mark Hollis - lead singer of Talk Talk died back in February, aged 64
    he produced some great music, Lifes what you make it, Talk Talk, Its my Life and was notorious for not buying into the whole "pop star" image. A very humble and talented man

    It was announced today that 'Toaster' and drummer of The Beat and General Public, Ranking Roger (Charlery) has died after a battle with brain tumours and lung cancer aged 56

    I always found him a mesmerising character on stage, your eyes were just drawn to him

    My favourite The Beat track

    Cheer up JB !

    Scott appealed to all ages. While you and I might remember him from the Walker Brothers era he evolved over the decades. Some interesting and very pleasant interviews with him up on youtube. There even seems to have been a Beeb prom concert featuring his music. :D


  • Registered Users Posts: 40,374 ✭✭✭✭ohnonotgmail


    Scratch this. Apparently he died 2 years ago. Enjoy the song anyway.

    Just saw Fergal Quinn died.
    I remember he rang me personally once, to follow up on a 'cranky oul' one complaint' I had written about checkouts on one of their feedback cards.

    We spoke for a good twenty minutes about all the things that made me (at the time) get a long bus journey out from where I lived to Superquinn. Very charming man. Now it's very possible he was thinking 'this will shut the oul' one up' but the man knew how to do customer service. R.I.P.

    Screen icon Doris Day has died aged 97

    https://jrnl.ie/4632277

    *sings* When I was just a little boy, I asked my mother, what will I be...


  • Administrators, Social & Fun Moderators, Sports Moderators Posts: 76,098 Admin ✭✭✭✭✭Beasty


    She was a real legend of the big screen back in the day.

    97 is a fair innings and I guess many of the younger generations would have little perception of her talents and popularity half a century and more ago

    Whip-crack-away Doris

    Nikki Lauda's name is known in this family as himself is interested in motor racing. Grumpy is also known as my daughter was a fan. But I have to admit I hadn't heard of Judith Kerr until it was on the news. Wish I had.
