I originally posted a laughing emoticon under your post but quickly removed it as it didn't sit very well with most of the content. ☹️

"When I saw the Pistols and The Clash I realised it didn't seem that difficult, they didn't seem like they could play very well either, so the thing was to form a band then work it out. We didn't even know who was going to play what - we passed around all the instruments until we found what we were comfortable with. I wasn't comfortable with any of them so I became the singer."

Gallileo, Famous Derby winning racehorse and stallion. 

Sad news announced on ITV racing today.

20 of his progeny sired group one winners.

Not into horse racing that much but randomly enjoyed a best of on YouTube a month or so ago with a couple of bevvies. Same with Frankel.

I saw it come and go, and then got worried about my sanity, but decided it was no problem, I am not sane.

Ernie Moss, footballer and local Chesterfield hero, aged 71.

Spent much of the last few years suffering from Pick's Disease. His family have been pushing for more research and help around the effect of heading the ball on players, who seem to have a higher than average incidence of dementia.

Also yesterday, my uncle Harry, 84.

 

"I am the avenging angel; I come with wings unfurled, I come with claws extended from halfway round the world. I am the God Almighty, I am the howling wind. I care not for your family; I care not for your kin. I come in search of terror, though terror is my own; I come in search of vengeance for crimes and crimes unknown. I care not for your children, I care not for your wives, I care not for your country, I care not for your lives." - (c) Jim Boyes - "The Avenging Angel"

Rick Laird, 80, of cancer. Best known as bassist in the original Mahavishnu Orchestra. Although born in Dublin, Laird took up bass while living in NZ then moved to Australia and played jazz gigs there before moving to London where he met McLaughlin while he was playing in an early Brian Auger lineup.

Sad to hear this , still listen to Inner Mounting Flame and Birds Of Fire albums , he really was a brilliant bass player . RIP.

Derbyshire and England cricketer Mike Hendrick, 72. I saw him bowl once on a grey morning at Chesterfield with a wicket like a Cornish Yarg cheese. I don't think the batsmen hit a single one of his first 24 balls. The first one who did edged it to Bob Taylor.

Sounding very Jim Lakeresque there, Tim mate.

I remember watching the 1979 World Cup Final from Lords. Hendrick was bowling to Viv Richards who was in fantastic form. Richards belted one delivery straight back at Hendrick who might have been able to pull off a sensational caught and bowled if he'd made the effort.

But instead, he ducked.

No criticism from the commentator who suggested it had been a wise move.
