Iain Banks.

And, coincidentally, Iain M Banks.

I have enjoyed so many of Iain Banks' books, both straight fiction and SF. We knew it was coming, but sad news all the same.

Sad news. The Sopranos was absolutely gripping TV, much of that down to Gandolfini's superb acting.

I just assumed he was already dead!
His stuff was a favourite with the old biddy next door and a local boozer that must have invented karaoke in the 60's

No I don't care if you're if you're into different bands

No cause for so much hatred, I'm just a different man

Pull off that cover, I will too, and learn to understand

Almost exactly the same age as me. I was heading towards a similar shape until I lost 1/3 of my weight 3 years ago. So glad I did.

 

He was a terrific actor and The Sporanos is right up there with the best TV ever made.

I'd go along with that.

He crashed ten minutes into a 24 hour race, I guess it doesn't matter when it happened you just wouldn't expect it so early on.
I turned it on yesterday about 2hrs 30mins in and heard there had been a stoppage as Allan had crashed and caused a bit of a mess on track. So I went onto YouTube to see if there was a video of it as they weren't showing any replays, anyway, I didn't really think much of it.
Tuned back in this morning to hear he had died and was in shock. Terrible news, even worse that he has a baby daughter.
The commentators seemed to think he crashed into a barrier that had a tree directly behind it so there was no give and essentially just crashed hundreds of miles an hour into a tree, no mention if this in the papers though.

Ok, it just looked like it could have been an attempt at humour to me which, I'm sure you'd agree, would have been pretty inappropriate.

 

To hear he's left a young family behind makes the tragedy even more difficult to accept.

 

RIP.
