This is comparatively old news, both last January but I’ve only just found out.

Ok so I’m sure some of you are sick of me mentioning this but I grew up with Mick Karns music so I find news of his death at 52 from cancer very, very sad. A truly inspirational and unique bass player, revered and respected the world over.Do a search on Youtube and you won’t find much of him .. but you’ll find loads of people trying to copy him.

And also Dick Winters (played by the perfectly cast Damian Lewis in Band of Brothers). There’s not many people in the world deserve the label of Hero, but he was one. One of those rare leaders of men who actually were and are good role models.
