Paul Chapman, the Welsh rock guitarist best known for his work in UFO and WAYSTED, has died at the age of 66. His passing was confirmed by his son, who wrote on Paul's Facebook page: "It is with a heavy heart writing this, today is my dads 66th birthday. He passed away earlier this afternoon. He was a brilliant, energetic, loving and most carefree person and the First man I ever loved. Everyone he came in contact with loved him. no ADORED him. will keep everyone posted on his celebration of life. I appreciate everyone's thoughts and prayers as his family grieves and processes everything at this time. I love you Dad. So much."

Very sad news. The UFO albums he is on are amongst their best and tracks from them were played on the band's farewell tour. I will always remember Paul Chapman from the gig at the Colston Hall on the Making Contact tour. They were so good in Cardiff that a friend and I decided to travel to Bristol to see them again shortly afterwards. They did not go down as well in Bristol as Cardiff and my friend and I recieved an on stage acknowledgement from Chapman as we were the only ones at the front with air guitars out. :character-beavisbutthead:

But seriously, Dame Vera was truly a legend in her own lifetime and an inspiring figure for several generations.

And 103, respect. :pray:

Ian Holme. Perhaps The Madness of King George his finest work but I shall always think of him as Ash in Alien.
