Vaughan Oliver, 62 album sleeve designer for 4AD records (I had no idea they were all designed by the same person).

Neil Innes, 75.

:(

Oh no! A very funny and talented man.

I liked the way he'd always introduce Urban Spaceman as "a medley of my hit"

Innes was a phenomenal talent and, i understand, a bloody lovely man, as well.

One last kick in the bollocks from 2019.

Thank you for the tunes and the laughs, Mr Innes.

Innes was truly hilarious, there was a time when he was my favourite funnyman in any genre. RIP.

Syd Mead. Goddamn it.

Rutger Hauer and Syd Mead, both in 2019.  That's irony.

I had the great pleasure of meeting Alasdair Gray at Grogan's pub in in Dublin some years ago. I think he was here for a literary festival or something along those lines. A really pleasant and interesting man. It was only after he gave me his autograph as requested that he mentioned his arthritis. To this day, I still feel a tad guilty for asking. Gutted to read of his loss. R.I.P.

Apparently Derek Acorah has 'passed over'.  Enquiries are proceeding as to how his journey went and whether he arrived okay .... (oh, and where Aunt Nel put her reading glasses ....)
