Sorry to hear your news, @Expert Textpert. My sympathies. a-hard-days-night-paul-10heart

Very sad to hear the news that (Bob Marley and the) Wailers' keyboard player and occasional guitarist, Earl "Wya/Wire" Lindo, passed away in hospital in London on 4 September, aged 64.

A gifted musician, he was the first recruited backing musician for the Wailers, and remained with Bob right up until Bob's death. He was an essential part of Marley's sound, and so the sound of Jamaica.

Again, far too young.

RIP Earl, you made some of my favourite songs greater.

May we never forget the lives of those killed in the 9/11 terrorist attacks.

RIP Grant Hart of Husker Du, one of the best bands of the 80s and the only contemporary band I loved in 1985. Green Day, Nirvana and pop-punk in general owe a lot to that amazing trio. 57 is way too young...as always, FUCK CANCER

Funnily enough, I think I just heard about them yesterday -- Robert Plant had mentioned them in an interview from the eighties.

Yeah, I remember around the time of Now And Zen, he was often talking them up in interviews (he had an interest in modern underground sounds) but they'd already broken up the year previous.

Very sad to hear of the death of one the great American actors, Harry Dean Stanton, at the age of 91.

A favourite actor of many directors, you were almost always guaranteed that something would be good if Harry Dean was in it.

RIP Harry Dean.

RIP indeed...I just mentioned him to  my aunt last weekend regarding another movie (she didn't recognize the name, had to show her a picture on the phone so she could go "oh, THAT guy!")

I remember George saying 'Blimey, he's always talking about “Yesterday”, you'd think he was Beethoven or somebody' - Paul McCartney
