Tommy Smith, co-owner and barman of Grogan's Pub on South William Street, Dublin. He personally showed me much kindness, support and empathy over the 35 plus years that I was a visitor to the best pub in Dublin, bar none. I am so deeply saddened to hear of his passing and will raise a glass to his memory tonight. Rest in Peace, Tommy Smith.

Sorry to hear that -  I never knew his name till now but I've bought many pints off him.  I dont like Grogans*, but all my friends do so I'm there quite a bit.  He, and all the staff, have never been anything short of exemplary ambassadors to their trade.

*the only real problem being that it's so popular - you can't move in there.

BBC.

Can't say I'd heard of her before today but I've since heard phrases such as "committed suicide after being hounded by tabloid journalists".  I'm sure the truth will come out (though if that phrase is true then it might be difficult to get the whole story without digging).

(see "Diana killed during high-speed chase by paparazzi" versus islamophobic conspiracy theories about muslims and the royal family).

Andy Weatherall. If you liked jumping about in dark rooms to repetitive beats as a youth, he was important.  Sabres of Paradise were incredible too, and The Happy Mondays and Primal Scream wouldn't have got where they did without Andy. He'll be missed.

I think the death of Caroline Flack has been really upsetting.
Suicide is always horrible and this one seems like such an indictment on our shitty society.
There have been lots of people sharing the #bekind hashtag as if it's okay to talk about people and obsess about their private lives as long as you aren't nasty about it. I can't help thinking #mindyourownfuckingbusiness might be more useful.

I, Cosh

Yeah, me too. This is a sad one. Read an interview with him a few months ago and it was great to see someone obviously so happy to be finding and playing music of all kinds.
We never really die.

QFT. I confess I'd never consciously seen or heard of Caroline Flack before this, but what a miserable world we live in where the intimate details of people's lives and deaths are the speculative currency of profiteering media and online gossips alike. Horrible to see anyone brought to such an end.

As no kind of a clubber, Andy Weatherall was someone who I enjoyed at secondhand through my DJ brother and his vast debris field of illegbly-marker-scrawled burnt CDs. I liked his My Bloody Valentine, Primal Scream and Saint Etienne remixes, and what I generally understand to have been his work on something labelled 'From the Bunker'. A clear talent, and again, ridiculously young.

Not exactly that new mind, remember all the 'grief' over Diana?  Channel 4 was the only one that didn't spend an entire day on her ...

Someone posted this on Imgur and the comments section is just people copying and pasting the headline over and over again. Fitting tribute.
