  9. Andy Gill, from Gang of Four, died from pneumonia just 64, in Feb. I did wonder if he was possibly one of the early victims before all this virus went crazy..

    I'm not familiar with their music but when I worked in freight forwarding at Heathrow, I oversaw the handling of a few truckloads of their gear heading off to Europe for a tour, and one of their roadies proudly showed me 'pepsi tins' that unscrewed so drugs could be concealed therein, he obviously thought I could be trusted with that information, and I suppose he was right.

    RIP Peter Skellern.

    Died a few years back now, a bit of a one hit wonder with 'You're a Lady'.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Peter_Skellern

    Interesting story alert: I was working for a woman, remote place, other side of the Fowey Estuary and she mentioned she was doing choir practice at the local church with a bloke called Peter Skellern who was a 60's pop star but now wrote 'hymns', although he did a few albums over the years he stayed close to the church and 'that type' of music as his lifelong ambition was to become a priest.
    Anyway. the poor bugger got cancer and a few weeks before he died, the Bishop of Truro ordained him a priest.

    I've been there. It's not on the other side of the Estuary.

    When I say the 'other' side of the estuary, I mean the other side to which I live, the woman was on the other side of the Fowey estuary, place called St Veep, I have a few customers round that way, Lerryn, Couchs Mill, Lostwithiel, I've no idea what church he was working at, Truro is of course, 'this' side of the estuary. Sometimes EFL, you can be really hard work.

    I wish I’d never started this thread. It was meant as a mark of respect for those that have passed not as an opportunity to gloat. :(

    This is to remember who passed. It's not for an argument.
