My Dad died on Friday. Ben Spiller was a pretty great guy. I can't claim he's an actual celebrity but it's possible if you are from the Reading area you'd know him. He won the pride of Reading award i

A magnificent Klingon too.

My mate spent Sunday doing a Christopher Plummer marathon of The Sound Of Music, Waterloo, and Star Trek VI.

If I had a TV at the moment, I'd have watched Starcrash in tribute.

Very sad to report that Rynagh O'Grady, who played Mary in Father Ted has passed aged 67.  Could never get enough of the scenes with her and her screen husband.  Comedy classics.

I may be stretching the term "celebrity" here, but despite saying "who?" chances are you've seen him in something. 

Harry Fielder passed away on the 6th February. A career spanning from Star Wars to Hi-di-Hi. Probably the only person to stand next to both Darth Vader and Ruth Madoc!

Took this off his wiki. He seems to have reprised his trademark role as Some Background Bloke Who Doesn't' Get Credited in a lot of classic films.

No mention of Larry Flynt, your teenage selves would be ashamed.

Larry Flynt caused enough jizz with his artistic pamphlets and films during his life. Surely he doesn't need the UKFF's own @Thunderplex to fire off a volley in death.

Crazy and prolific jazz composer and pianist Chick Corea has died. One of the greats and also at times completely unlistenable.

Of albums released under his own name I'd say The Mad Hatter is probably my favourite. It'd be too hard to pick if I broaden it up to albums he played on as he has been on too many bonafide classics. Bitches Brew maybe? Dunno! He had a big influence on Miles's sound though and his influence on jazz as a whole is incalculable. A true pioneer.
