Sad to hear about Donald Byrd - even if you think you've never heard him, if you've heard a hip hop tune with sampled horns then you almost certainly have!

I only have one track of his, from a compilation album. But that track is 'Black Byrd' and it's seriously cool! The title track from one of Blue Note's biggest ever sellers.

Songwriter and record producer George 'Shadow' Morton, apparently. Can't find a link yet, though.

Derek Batey, host of 'Mr & Mrs'.

Mindy McCready, country singer. Suicide, apparently.

Rumours also abound that Richard Briers has died. :(Briers' death confirmed on the BBC.

Cruelly, his final screen appearance was a cameo in a Danny Dyer film, for God's sake. :(

He couldn't grumble though, he had a good life.

Was it Mr Ben he narrated? I know his voice from somewhere else.

Sign outside our local butchers. Watership Down: You've read the book...you've seen the film..now eat the stew.

Briers has been in so many things: The Good Life, Ever Decreasing Circles, Monarch of the Glen, Morse, and many many more. He also played Bertie Wooster and Bob The Builder. Sadly missed but sure of an enduring presence on the repeat channels,
