I wondered why my friend in Facebook had shared Just Dropped In (To See What Condition My Condition Was In) on Facebook this morning. Did some great songs. Sad loss.

I anticipate many headlines referring to his death as "breaking even."

He knew when to hold them, when to fold them etc

It's really not a good time for pioneers of Industrial music, Gabi Delgado-Lopez of Deutsch Amerikanische Freundschaft has passed away.

I'm really glad that he had such a long life, and that it wasn't this villain which got him:

Asterix (who is 60 himself!) is one of my quirky little hobbies. I think I might try to reduce the unread pile by one this evening in memory of him.

Edit: Didn't he have the weirdest pen-holding style?!

Read all the Asterix books when I was a kid, absolutely loved them. What a body of work he's left behind.

Manu Dibango, killed by the Coronavirus. 86, amazing innings for an African sax player, but still, fucking fucking hell.

Uderzo, and now Dibango. I can see this is going to be a very dark period indeed. As you say: fucking fucking hell.

I'd love to get hold of the Asterix books again. There are a couple of the older animated movies on Netflix.

Been years since I put this on - what a joy. The title track is more iconic than most know. Michael Jackson re-adapted it most famously but check out the massive list of people who did also: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Soul_Makossa#Adaptations_and_samples

 

Will have to dig further into his huge discography soon. RIP to a real one.

If you like Asterix go to Parc Asterix near Paris. I absolutely loved it. Got to meet Asterix, Obelix, Cheif Vitalstatistix and many others as well as visiting the Gaulish village.  There are many excellent rides there too but it was busy and I didn't do any but still had an amazing time!

Horror director Stuart Gordon has sadly passed away aged 72. Always enjoyed his films, especially Re-Animator and Castle Freak.
