Every time I go away one of my heroes dies. :(

Never mind Willy Wonka, Blazing Saddles was one of the best films ever made. :cry:

Yeah. Just seen that on the local news. :(

Always remember him from Planet X and when he was working in Probe Records where he would tell everyone not to buy things because it's rubbish and ban people if they were asking for mainstream stuff. He also used to chase all the scallies away down the street. He was just a Goth then, rather than what he later became. Sad really that body image ruined his life.

He was also the last of The Magnificent Seven. RIP.

Peter Vaughan who played Harry Grout in Porridge and the dad in Citizen Smith. Probably better known to youngsters as Maester Aemon Targaryen from Game Of Thrones.

Another comedy legend gone. Also a great villain. RIP. :(

Very very sad that's two out of three from one of the finest prog bands in one year :(

Say what you want about the band, but this hit me pretty bad. Once of my mum's all time favourite bands and we went to many gigs together over years (my first ever gig was seeing Quo at Sheffield City Hall when I was about 8 or so).
