Massive shame BB has gone, such a great musician :( He pretty much epitomized the Blues both in music and in lifestyle. He was touring pretty much to his last day; can't say he didn't give it all.

One of the all time great guitar men. I was lucky enough to briefly meet him about 10 years ago, and he seemed like a nice guy too. RIP :(

John Nash, massive contributer to (you could probably call him the pioneer of) game theory and the inspiration behind A Beautiful Mind killed with his wife Alicia in a taxi crash.

Massive shame, having done an economics course you can just how groundbreaking his work was; amazing considering his personal demons too :(

Got to the pub and someone said that Ron Moody had died. It's another case of don't die on the same day as someone more famous than you.

Absolutely gutted about Christopher Lee.

Christopher Lee, a true legend. RIP. I tend not to feel too sad about people of 93 dying, he lead an incredibly full, long and rich life, prefer to celebrate a life than mourn a passing in these instances.

Ron Moody does seem to have been swept under the carpet a little dying so close to Christopher Lee! Must admit I'm not terribly familiar with him. Jazz saxophonist Ornette Coleman has died as well..plus some wrestler I'd never heard of.

I honestly thought Christopher Lee was Immortal.

Dusty Rhodes too! an absolute legend and massive in-ring and backstage player in the business for the last 40+ years!!

Patrick Macnee (93)

Most people will remember him as Steed from The Avengers, but as a horror fan, I will always remember him as Dr George Waggner from The Howling, and the wheelchair bound Sir Wilfred from Waxwork.
