The curse of Father Ted strikes again.

Seriously, if you look through the actors that played named roles many of them are dead. Some of them quite young.

And the Catholic Church wouldn't give him a funeral!

Yeah- not surprising - still I'm sure he didn't care!

He's only the third I know of. And the actor who played Father Jack was 77 so no spring chicken.

Just found out today, that Rutger Hauer passed on the 19th at 75. Think it was health issues.

RIP Roy Batty & the Hobo with a shotgun.

Not a celeb, but a regular face at metal gigs up here - Mike Woods. Last saw him playing with his band Heavy Sentence supporting Jag Panzer in London

Pretty much sure we all heard about the passing of legendary drummer Ginger Baker

Loved the complimentary and respectful things Bill Ward said about him and although I am not a drummer they were pretty much spot on. Although Baker was a `percussionist` and had often said he hated heavy metal his influence cannot be denied.
