Shawn Smith - honey voiced singer from Pigeonhed, Satchell who got noticed after being swept in the grunge scene after singing on Pearl Jam spin-off band Brad's Shame album which came out as PJ were getting massive. They made more albums, and he sung on the first album of Afghan Whigs spin-off The Twilight Singers, plus having his songs all over The Sopranos. I saw Brad on their only UK tour, have the poster hung in my hallway - he had an amazing voice and did the not-inconsiderable feat of making a a member of Pearl Jam funky.

Niki Lauda died yesterday at 70. He won two F1 World Championships after a horrendous crash in 1967 where he suffered third degree burns to his face. What a guy.

Paul Darrow RIP. :(
