i just spent a week in Wales with a close friend who happens to be a big player in designing speakers and sound systems. He's done the sound for many an artist including the Rolling Stones. He said that Lee Perry was a remarkable talent, whatever he chose to do on the night. 

One time, Perry freely rapped over a backing track for about 90 minutes and painted a mural on a huge canvas while doing so. He said it was quite bizarre yet brilliant entertainment. I suppose that kind of sums him up.

RIP Sarah Harding, 39.

That's no age at all, although she seems to have lived what few years she had to the full.

Remember a classmate getting a Sinclair scientific calculator when they came out in '74. Despite having to use reverse Polish notation and occasionally being a bit slow to perform calculations, everyone else in the class were more than a touch jealous. It was a truly remarkable piece of cheap (compared to contemporary kit) 'computer hardware' for its time. My 1st Sinclair kit was a ZX81 that got nicked when the house I lived in got burgled less than a week after I bought it!

Rest in Peace Jimmy Greaves greatest English footballer I had the pleasure to see.

Jimmy Greaves was my late brothers hero. He was at a book signing, when he was returning from the wilderness, and having his book and Spurs stuff signed by him when the photographer tried to take a pic of him with him for the local paper but my brother was very shy and wouldn't do it. He said JG was very nice about him being so shy.

No , it was only a couple of days ago i was reading about his illness . Thats really sad , he was brilliant and a big part of the shows success was the strength in depth of the cast . 

Went to see his one man show a few years back. Was a really enjoyable evening.

Old Faithful we never lose at Wembley

Melvin van Peebles has sung his last baadasssss song. Not only a filmmaker, but a novelist, playwright, songwriter, actor, and the first black man to hold a seat on the New York Stock Exchange.
