I remember her best for 'Angie Baby' which I think was her highest charting record in the UK. RIP.

I knew he had been ill for some time. One of the guitar greats and a traill blazer.
R.I.P.
I set a course just east of Lyra
And northwest of Pegasus
Flew into the light of Deneb
Sailed across the Milky Way
On my ship, the Rocinante
Wheeling through the galaxies
Headed for the heart of Cygnus
Headlong into mystery
The x-ray is her siren song
My ship cannot resist her long
Nearer to my deadly goal
Until the black hole
Gains control

RIP Doc

Grantham musician Brian Locking, who played bass guitar with The Shadows in the sixties, has died.

Brian, who was 82, died in north Wales this week, but had lived most of his life in Grantham, moving there as a small boy with his family. He was born in Bedworth.

Friend and fellow Grantham musician Trevor Leeson said Brian had been ill for some time and, after a period in intensive care, he died in a hospice in Wales.
