From the North East, Sunderland I believe.

Sad though.

She didn't sound like a Geordie, but it looks like she'd lived near Manchester for about half her life.

Ted McKenna, drummer with loads of bands, last back with Schenker in the Michael Schenker Fest after being in MSG in the early 80s. Also played with Rory Gallagher (on the Top Priority and Photo Finish albums, plus Stage Struck, which is one of the best live albums ever). Also played with Sensational Alex Harvey Band, Ian Gillan, Fish.

That`s a sad one Denim Demon, really enjoyed the last MSG release and thought it superb to have him and Chris Glen back on the rhythm section

Dave Ingram Jr. :'(


Some of you would have known him personally. Regular attender of gigs and festivals such as Bloodstock and Beermageddon. He also played in bands such as Vindicator, Hellbastard and Nefasturris.

Decent lad and will be sadly missed. RIP.


Bit late posting as it was a couple of weeks ago, but I've only just heard.

The guy was sprinkled all over the eighties. His gremlins character would have been a trump supporter :lol: . Funny because back then his character was loveable but now would just seem like a racist.

Anyway rip. A great actor in some of the best films ever.

Jeremy Hardy. RIP.

He was a bit of a looney lefty but was a decent comedian. Hilarious when trying to sing on ISIHAC.
