Bella Emberg, of 'The Russ Abbott Show' fame has passed away. I was quite surprised with how much prominence her death was reported. Certainly remember her from the Russ Abbott days, but anyone under 35 probably wouldn't remember her. She was 80 years old.

 Cyril Regis has died aged 59.

His passing will be no doubt be included in the football obituaries section, but as a major breakthrough player from the eighties, deserves a mention within the celebrity thread.

RIP.

Sad to hear that Dolores O'Riordan, lead singer with The Cranberries, has died at the age of just 46.

I think I'll be listening to "Zombie", "Linger", "Ridiculous Thoughts", "Ode To My Family" etc. a lot tonight.

For those not acquainted with the Cranberries here's a link to 'Zombie'. It's well worth a listen.

Thanks Punky - I had forgotten that song.

But I'll raise you another from the music industry who passed away 10 days ago - Ray Thomas of the Moody Blues, who I last saw play with them about 2002, but who I shall never forget at the 1969 Isle of Wight concert in particular. RIP

661 million views is impressive, usually it's only mass produced crap like Lady Gaga, Justin Bieber or Beyoncé that gets those sort of numbers.

2018 seems to be proving a sad year for well-known / celebrity former footballers. The legend that is Jimmy Armfield has sadly died, aged 82.

And we must say farewell to Christian Burchard, founder and leader of Embryo, the best Krautrock band of all. I am now listening to We Keep On, which for me is their finest album.

Hugh Masekela (1939-2018). South African jazz musician & composer. Never saw him play, although he was sitting with friends at a table near mine during a Chris Potter gig at Ronnie Scott's some years ago.

[This is one of their albums that featured alto sax player Charlie Mariano and is particularly worth checking out for his contributions]

I saw him perform in Leicester in the early eighties but can't recall which venue. He could play..........

......Oh shite. Though thought there was a degree of inevitability about the passing of the curmudgeonly ol' bugger, a lifetime of fags and alcohol on an industrial scale is always certain to shorten the lifespan. But then there is the music.

From the first hearings of 'It's the New Thing' in the latter months of 1978 through to the closing chords of 'Nine out of Ten' on the last album (I had a premonition that would be the last music we would ever hear from the gruppe), The Fall (AKA MES) have been a major part of my life as you can probably guess from the Fallism's placed randomly in my inanities. Gloriously brilliant and frustrating in equal measures is the best accolade I can muster at this time.

Je Ne Regrette Rien, but after my own extrication, never again witnessed the shambolic intensity of The Fall live. Belgrave Music Hall Leeds 23rd May 2017, sadly eluded.....

I've been a Fall Fan since I was about 14 (1978) and Mark E Smith has soundtracked and influenced pretty much my entire life. In latter years I have become friends with former Fall members Steve and Paul Hanley, Steve Trafford and Brix Smith-Start (Mark E Smith's ex-wife.) The loss of Mark has hit me hard and I've taken solace in the wonderful output from BBC 6 Music since the news broke last night.

My thoughts are with Mark's family, friends and band mates past and present.

Police now investigating Howard Lewis's death after his daughter claimed he was needlessly prescribed high dose sedatives and maximum strength opiate painkillers.

American blues and soul singer Denise LaSalle, best known for her 1985 top 10 hit 'My Toot Toot', died on 9th January aged 78. Missed the news of her death at the time only finding out today when Radio 2 were advertising a tribute to her on this evening's blues show.
