Very sad news, I recently saw his daughter on the One Show, where I found out he had Alzheimer's. Some great tracks to play in tribute, Wichita Lineman being a highlight, RIP.

I was shocked a couple of years ago to learn that she was still alive. 104 is a jolly good innings.

Sad to hear of the death of the legendary Sir Bruce Forsyth. I was just thinking of him recently.  ajb007/martini

From Wikipedia:

In 2012, Guinness World Records recognised Forsyth as having the longest television career for a male entertainer.

Re: Tributes Thread

Not only have we lost Jerry Lewis, but another great comedian as well--Dick Gregory, who died at 84.  Before Richard Pryor came on the scene, there was Gregory talking about racism and using comedy to raise consciousness.  RIP to them both.

Shame, I liked a lot of his work. Have just been writing about Lifeforce, his great forgotten 80s SF horror epic. Stiffed at the box office but it's *really* good.

Yes, I missed him at the con, went over to his queue about 2-3pm but was told he was on lunch break and got varying estimates of when he would be back, so decided to give him a miss... regret that decision now...

Its always something , the guest leaves early , the guest gets sick  , the guest dies (the latter should be valid enough excuse to miss a con I would think , holy sarcasm).......never a sure thing to go to cons , always a gamble.
