    Devastating. I literally own everything he's ever done, even the oft forgotten Filthy, Rich and Catflap.

    I'll be watching Bottom and The New Statesman tonight.

    I can't believe you've left us, Rik. You utter, utter, utter, utter, utter, utter bastard.

    Jimmy Keays from Masters Apprentices has died.

    In lieu of a minute's silence, please turn up your radio.

    RIP

    The Bombardier ad featuring Rik Mayall is actually in the new Cricketer magazine - I imagine that'll be dropped now. Although he is in with a chance of a number 1 record later with a re-issue of an England football song.

    Surprised that no-one's mentioned Gerry Goffin yet. One of the great joint-songwriters, and not all that old at 75 when he passed on.

    There was a very good BBC4 programme about Carole King the other week, which obviouslt featured a lot about Gerry Goffin. Well worth catching.

    Damien D'Oliveira - BBC News - Damian D'Oliveira: Former Worcestershire batsman dies

    One of those players who will forever be synonymous with Ceefax scorecards for me.

    Alfredo di Stefano

    Before my time, but we've lost one of the absolute greats.

    Rip Alfredo di Stefano.

    Also Michael Scudamore. Grand National winning jockey, father of Peter and grandfather of Thomas and Michael who are all major names in national hunt racing.

    Edvard Shevardnadze has died as well. Always reminds me of that heady era of the fall of the Soviet Union. Certainly had his flaws, but he had a key role in letting the Warsaw Pact nations drift away from the USSR.
