Even older than Stan Lee!
Baroness Trumpington, she may have been one of the "born with a silver spoon in her mouth" but what a life.

RIP Harry Leslie Smith. You made it to 95 and were a proper left-wing rebel. I only hope I have half as much fire in my belly as you did in my twilight years. I'm proud to have been friends with you on Facebook and to have had a few decent chats over the years. We'll continue to fight the fight in your memory.

Indeed. Their Spiral Scratch EP was on the top of every Punk fan's wanted list when it came out. One of the earliest Punk releases from one of the best early Punk bands.

Have I ever fallen in love with someone I shouldn't have fallen in love with? Oh yes indeedy Pete.

What do I get? Another good question Pete.

Great talent. RIP.

Agreed. Pete Shelley was a brilliant songwriter. RIP.

RIP Pete Shelley.

The Buzzcocks were a great band knocking out so many punchy pop classics.

On the Spiral Scratch EP, Howard Devoto, who went on to form the excellent Magazine, was on vocals with Pete on guitar. I think if Devoto had stayed with The Buzzcocks the music would have gone in a different, probably far more 'arty', direction to the punk pop that Shelley and his bandmates gave us.

Sondra Locke.

Clint Eastwood's :cool: favourite co-star, well until she sued him twice :greensmile: and won

If your flipping through the TV channels and ITV4 are showing "The Gauntlet" yet again........there is a lot worse ways to spend a couple of hours. :thumbs:

RIP Sondra

RIP Sondra. The Gauntlet was her best film with Clint.
