Not music related but just read Stirling Moss has passed at 90 (not virus related). RIP. Still the biggest name in British motor racing history.

Tim Brooke-Taylor has gone. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-52262490.

And there is a musical link - all the music on the Goodies TV show. And the Album 'Nothing to do with us'.

Gutted about Dave Greenfield. Apparently Stranglers were supposed to be doing their farewell tour this summer. Millie 'My Boy Lollipop' was really the start of Island Records. Great label in it's day.
