Two more notable musical deaths in the last week.

Dallas Good, a stalwart of the Canadian music scene who played with groups such as The Sadies and Shadowy Men On A Shadowy Planet (probably best known over here for performing the theme music for Kids In The Hall)

Then just it was announced just yesterday that Mark Lanegan, of Screaming Trees, Queens Of The Stone Age and many more very sadly passed.

Very sad to hear about Mark Lanegan. I was wondering why 6 Music were playing his stuff today.

I read an interview with him late last year (I think he had a book out) and he sounded like he'd been through the wringer.

He was a great musician in his own right, but also one of those people who seem to thrive in collaborations. He's left a great catalogue behind.

I'm taking a wild guess here but I don't think they'll be showing any episodes of this  in  memoriam.
Be excellent to each other. And party on!

Oh my word.  Knew her from MASH but never really put 2 and 2 together on ST:TOS.

Agreed. Such a loss, a real talent. I’d heartily recommend checking out his work.

Producer Alan Ladd Jr has died. He brought Star Wars, Braveheart, and other well-known movies to a Cinema near you.

Quite an interesting piece. He sounds like a real rarity, an honourable Hollywood producer.
