    Beastie Boys were instrumental in introducing middle class white boys to hip-hop, admittedly in quite a popish sort of way - however it was a door that was opened and a musical barrier subsiquently broken down.

    Portrayers of the catchy lyric and beat (only last week I put on facebook, and possibly here, 'Fight For Your Right' is one of the greatest singalong songs going - Also the refrain from No Sleep Till Brooklyn easily sticks in the mind), they could belt out a classic tune too - When teamed with an awesome video, well, you just can't top Sabotage.

    MCA - will be missed by all, especially us middle class whiteys

    Obviously a bit of a hit and miss group but they had some awesome songs, Sabotage being top of the list for me. Often overshadowed by the video actually.

    Always seemed like a nice, intelligent bunch of guys too. Very sad news.

    Never really rated the Beasties in all honesty. Way too young to go though. RIP.

    "The committee discussed the issue of illegal bowling actions, and believed that there are a number of bowlers currently employing suspect actions in international cricket, and that the ICC's reporting and testing procedures are not adequately scrutinising these bowlers."
    - Even the ICC's own official press release thinks things must change

    Former Zimbabwe and Northants all-rounder Kevin Curran has died at the age of 53. A bit out of the blue.

    Sad news that Sylvia Kristel has departed this mortal coil. I was 14 when Emmanuelle was released and a mate of mine managed to get a few screenshots which I won off him in a game of Three Card Brag - I kept them under my bed for years, only allowing them to see the light of day occasionally - I recall finally throwing them away after, well no need to go there really, but I regretted doing so afterwards

    Clive Dunn is dead, quite upset about this, but he had a good innings.

    No need to PANIC any more though RIP.

    As you say he certainly had a good innings, but another link to my childhood goes, so it is indeed sad news

    RIP

    One of the first websites I ever posted on was deathlist.net, a cheery little number where a cast of oddballs speculated on the demise of public figures. Haven't posted there in years, but I thought of them straight away when I heard today's news - he was a cult figure there. The last few posts will give some clue of the esteem he was held in:


    50. Clive Dunn - DeathList Forum - Page 21


    Another of my haunts, Freaky Trigger has a piece devoted to his 1971 chart topper:

    CLIVE DUNN – “Grandad” | FreakyTrigger

    Curiously, both sites have used the same photo!

    Yeah, my first thought was 'Finally, Deathlist have got their man'

    RIP n all that, though veteran TV stars will probably get little of that nowadays.

    I think only Ian Lavender (Pike) is left from the actual platoon - obviously he was many years younger than the rest of the cast (although not the teenager that he played). The other surviving cast members include Bill Pertwee (Warden Hodges), Frank Sinclair (the Vicar), who was actually an ordained minister, and Pamela Cundell (Mrs Fox). Looking down the list of those who made fleeting appearances is interesting: Don Estelle, Fulton Mackay, Michael Knowles, Felix Bowness and Wendy Richard would go on to find fame in other sitcoms.

    Felix Bowness - are you saying he became famous because he was in Hi-di-Hi?!? Oh, and of course all of those other terrible, terrible, terrible Paul Shane """""comedies""""".

    Hi-di-Hi was fine, but You Rang M'Lud and Oh, Doctor Beeching were possibly the worst sitcoms ever written.
