One more for the 2016 road of gloom - the original Beetles manager, Allan Williams, has just gone through the door.

Let's all hold our collective breath until the year's over
(Later than you may think - 15:00 tomorrow, see the lounge for details.)

There was one other celebrity death yesterday, but he was an old man of 84 - the priest in the now ancient M*A*S*H series.

What a year!

I also only recently learnt that the artist Black (What a wonderful life - 1986) died in a car crash in Ireland in January 2016.

Just seen that Peter Sarstedt has died after a long illness, aged 75.
'Where do you go to my lovely' was his UK number one hit in 1969. It won the Ivor Novello award for best song.
Cheers K.

I believe, statistically, that 2015 was worse than 2016, and that both trail 2013 by quite some distance.

I think the reality is that between drugs-related, aids-related and good old old age we're in a period where a number of artists familiar to us are going to be popping off.

Chuck Norris was also rumoured to have died in 2016. But he recovered from this minor annoyance the next day.

And another one gone because of cancer - John Wetton (Asia/King Crimson).

And, extending this to the theatrical and cinematic world, we will all miss the amazing actor John Hurt who died last week.
Who will fail to remember his fantastic performances in the Elephant Man, 1984 and the Naked Civil Servant?
Plus, of course, his brief but "explosive" performance as the unfortunate recipient of an Alien foetus, Kane, in the movie of the same name!
Cheers, K.

Since we are extending into the entertainment world, Mary Tyler Moore passed away on 25 January, aged 80. She was a legend in her time.

Moving away from entertainment, one that's not unexpected - Joost van der Westhuizen.
