Author Wilbur Smith gone at 88.

His BBC obituary says he wrote about "early African history" like the gold rush (in the 1880s).

 

The inhabitants of Blombos Cave were unavailable for comment.

I was reading his Wikipedia article recently and it struck me how old he was. Truly one of the 20th century's great composers.

There was a story a while back about a composer who had Alzheimer's but had managed to compose a new symphony with his sons help. Somebody sent it to Sondheim as he was this blokes hero, and Sondheim sent a video message to the bloke praising his symphony. A lovely gesture and it made the old bloke so happy it was lovely to see.

 

Seems Sondheim was a good man as well as being an immense talent.

I work with a Cov fan, he's devastated about it, that's both of the 87 joint managers gone in the past 12 months.

Was that the post-match interview where he said something like "they play wonderful football, I just wish they'd go and do it somewhere else"?

I can't remember exactly what was said, I just remember him singing our praises.

He was a bit of a wag.

Damn shame, that.

 

Part of my childhood summer holidays in the 80's was the Monkees TV series on Children's BBC, used to love it, liked the music as I got older too. I still can't believe Davy Jones went first, he looked 10 years younger than the rest of them.

I remember going to a party when I was a kid and everyone was singing Daydream Believer at the top of their voices, adults too.

A real feel good song that I've always loved.

RIP.
