I tend not to come on 'Terraces' too often, in the hope of avoiding the hideous 'word association' thread, so when I did look just now, I was dismayed to read about the passing of Kevin Beattie and Maartin Alcocok (like you Quinny, loved Fairport and Tull). RIP both.
Also Chas Hodges (who's passing I had heard about). Saw Chas and Dave live at half time at The Lane once. Always great fun and I loved the Courage ad. I hadn't realised he played in Heads Hands and Feet though... great band with the mercurial Albert Lee on guitar. RIP Chas.
