Ron "set it and forget it" Popeil, founder of Ronco, who made many convenience products, some of which actually worked.

Very sad , I enjoyed watching him bowl as a kid . Nice action and very accurate . He induced so  many plays and misses

Couldn't bat, said he didn't see why bowlers had to bat!

Donington 2004, Joey Jordison and Dave Lombardo played most of the set when Lars Ulrich was in hospital.  An amazing show considering the way it had to be pulled together.

 

Also, Dusty Hill of ZZ Top

I watched her on Wurzel Gummidge and Alf Garnett , there’s a contrast

I thought of her in Give Us A Clue, Sherlock and Summer Holiday.

All in all quite a wide ranging career

Rest in Peace Nanci thank you for all your concerts in Belfast  during those years when very few others included Belfast on their tours.

Very sad news about Nanci Griffith.

I love watching and listening to famous people on programmes like "Desert Island Discs" and hearing why they chose a particular song and what it means to them. Jim Bowen was on one of these types of programmes and he chose "From a distance" by Nanci.

He said that many people have covered this song but Nanci Griffith made love to it.

A lovely tribute.

Log-legs, long before Kieron Cunningham. For a short guy, he outjumped a lot of tall defenders.
