    Peter Green.
    Wonderful Bluesman and seemed a really nice guy.
    Do yourself a favour listen to
    The tracks:
    Fleetwood Mac (first time Green,McVie and Fleetwood were together) without JMBB.
    Drifting
    The album Then Play On
    Basically just listen to PG.
    Sad times, what an enigma he was :( My parents went to the Bath Festival of Blues 1969 together to see them, one of the first things they did together as a new couple!

    RIP John Saxon, a true genre great. His hat in Argento's Tenebrae is legendary.

    Olivia de Havilland has died at 104, one of my wife's favourite actors. To Each His Own and The Heiress are great Sunday matinees.

    Funny how there is no mention of her vocals on Give Out But Don't Give Up.

    Brilliant album.

    Yeah, that's sad. I'm a huge fan of some of his films (not much he made after 1990 though)

    I absolutely love Birdy and Angel Heart. I like the less problematic parts of Midnight Express, even if most of the film is Ollie Stone bullshit.

    I've not seen Midnight Express for years. Watched it first when I was about 15 and was blown away/horrified

    Angel Heart and Mississippi Burning were outstanding. Wasn't aware he did Fame and Bugsy Malone though.

    RiP Alan Parker. Angel Heart was a brilliant film and Mickey Rourke gave such a good performance as the lead character.

    RIP Wilford Brimley.

    Not gonna lie, this was the ultimate ‘I thought he was already dead’ for me, to the point where I thought he died literally decades ago.

    He was 49 in Cocoon FFS!

    Seriously though, RIP. I really enjoyed him letting loose in The Thing. And he was one of my favourite Seinfeld cameos.

    I'm sure people looked older 30 years ago. RIP Wilfred, you were in a lot of the films I watched growing up. I fancy watching The Thing tonight!

    Daisy Coleman who was in a Netflix doc about sexual assault has taken her own life.

    I watched the documentary recently and it was an interesting and tough watch.
