Gutted. Absolute legend.
I went to see Monty Python at the O2 Arena a few years back. Laughed my arse off until I could laugh no more. And then I laughed some more.

Terry Jones was my favourite Python (though I like them all). I think his humour was the second most surreal after Terry Gilliam's and before Michael Palin's. Chapman, Cleese and Idle were more towards the conventional end of comedy, but still pretty silly.

Reed Mullins of Corrosion of Conformity - passed away at 53. Longstanding problems by the looks, couldn't make the flight when they last played BoA but gave the band a great groove when he was on form
