Montserrat Caballe of Barcelona fame has died aged 85. 

Sad news. Album with her and Freddie is very strange (it was considered VERY strange in 1987) but the one song that worked was "Barcelona", but what vocal cords on her. Released in 1987, never did much (most of Freddies single stuff and duet stuff did this before he died. Anything without Queen would usually tank before he died), then reached the top for the Barcelona Olympics in 1992 and Freddie dying.

She also recorded a version of Bohemian Rhapsody with Bruce Dickinson, and I've never managed to figure out if it's great or shit.

Football Italia and Pro Evo commentator, Peter Brackley, has died aged 67. Always one of my favourite commentators.

Gutted, quite underrated IMO. Had an understated charisma about him.

I really liked him. He never seemed to get drawn into hyperbole and just did  the commentary. Did my head in when I got Pro Evo 5 and instead of him is was Jon Champion. It was awful.

Although he wasn't as good as Barry Davies and Trevor Brooking on Actua Soccer 2.

Old Pimp and owner of the famous Bunny Ranch Dennis Hof has died. Found unresponsive in his bed by Ron Jeremy (which isnt anything new for Ron these days.)

I'm giving Ron Jeremy about 6 months, personally. That bloke looked to be on deaths door last time I seen him.

Bracko wasn't binned off until PES 2008, i.e. when it went shit. RIP :(
