Greg Allmann.

Of the Allman Brothers. General nice guy, talented and influential musician, and one time husband of Cher. Fat lot of good it did him, still dead at 69.


Yes, I know a lot of you won't have heard of him, but I haven't heard of of other people who die.

I think we know that after many years of before and then one final taxation, that in the fate that awaits us all. ::) ::) ::) Our brains are not geared up to think about it on a daily basis, where we are all naturally positive. :y :y :y

The art of living is having a thoroughly enjoyable life, through good and bad times, while you put as many notches in your 'birthday post' as possible. :y :y :y

Another notch in Gixer's, Jimbob's and my 'birthday post' on the same day next month. I hope I live as long as, the oldest man on the planet, 160yo Lord Opti as I will only be 100 years behind him. 8) 8) 8)

Agreed  :y

That young lad has known pretty much nothing but suffering all his life but still managed to smile and leave a legacy (not counting the money raised for cancer)  of happy memories for the people who knew him.

Also a big pat on the back for Jermaine Defoe who has put so much time into making little Brads life a little happier over the last few months.
I work with a few lads from the north east on a regular basis and one short arsed, smoggy bastard lad's sister is friends (real life / not Facebook) with Brads mother.
Lets just say the press has only reported a fraction of what Jermain has done for that lad and his family  ;)

Hmmm, not sure. Problem is that most current presenters are just so damned boring. Read the script, read the autocue, toe the line . . . . . Brucie could do it off the cuff, or if it wasn't off the cuff, he was really good at making it look like it was. I still recall Sunday Night At The London Palladium with fond memories., and that's not like me.

Good. I like cantankerous. I love it when an old guy exposes an inept interviewer who's just churning out mundane questions. He did actually make me laugh back in the day.

Thing is, if a 70/80/90 year old man is in bed with a young woman, does it not make him feel bad and a bit creepy to know that she is probably feeling sick to her stomach at being there, but is willing to sell her dignity for his money / power/ influence ?
The biggest part of the thrill is in the chase (as far as I remember from all those years ago  ;D) and someone in his position lost that a long time ago.
Ive read stories where he would take rich / famous buddies to the mansion and tell them to take a look around at the girls, who were there like livestock in a cattle market, and pick out whichever one they wanted for the night.
I'm not remotely prudish, far from it, but that makes my skin crawl a little bit.

Couldn't agree more Albs . I'd argue all day that the seventies was the best music decade .....ever . I'm buying a lot of cd's off Ebay ( Music Magpie ) replacing all my vinyl and returning to these artists from that era and listening to their lyrics,chord structures and harmonies just highlights the total absence of musical depth most ,if not all, have today.

Mid 60,s to mid 70,s for me. After the mid 70,s very few people of interest came along. SRV, John Mayer, and that's all I can think of.
Before that there were countless artists / bands who were enormously creative, and masters of their craft.
The creativity died and the corporations took over, everything became bland and derivative, and eventually we ended up with an industry, which is run by people like Simon Cowell.

Don't think all the blame can be set against "corporations" ,,, when I were a "yoof" there were folk clubs, jazz clubs, R&B clubs, even things called "youth clubs" where aspiring musicians could try things out and/or learn their craft, as well as listen to a very wide range of music. All these places have no gone, so just where do the young of today learn to be creative or try things out ?? even if they wished to?? in their place we have youtube/twitter/spotify etc etc etc.... all prepackaged because thats what todays youth WANT

Yep, and remember the days when us teenagers where being shoveled what the adults of the time (1950s) wanted, nothing we we could identify with.  Then, bang, it happened from the late 1950's; music for teenagers by teenagers, or at least those in their early twenties.  Before it had been Bing Crosby, Sinatra, Como, etc., then it was Chuck Berry, Little Richard, Elvis, Holly, and THE BEATLES!! :-* :-* :-* :-*

No longer could adults tell us teenagers what to listen to, with our own (pirate) radio stations, Luxembourg, then Radio 1.  Now that trend is still there; the kids like what they like and it is a mistake if anyone too old tries to tell them what to listen too.  Even Simon Cowell must now watch his aging step!  He will soon be a dinosaur as the kids lock on to something else; the next music revolution 8) 8) 8) ;)

Your kind of proving my point Nige. In the early days of pop / rock music, to be successful you had to start in youth clubs, coffee bars, pubs, etc. cutting your teeth and learning your craft on the job.
Now, you would probably attend a stage school, where any creative talent you may have will be drummed out of you, then do an audition for X factor or similar, bypassing all those stages where craft is learned, and the wheat usually got sorted from the chaff along the way.
I don't think its like this because todays yoof want it. Todays yoof don't know what it was like previously, and if they did, I'm sure they would want that instead.
Even more serious minded musicians don't follow the old routes these days, partially because, as you say, the small venues aren't there in great numbers any more.
Instead they will learn how to produce their own albums via their computer, at home, and then release it on the internet.
Nothing wrong with that in itself I suppose, but I wonder what happens when they become a bit of an internet sensation, and then have to start performing at gigs.
Even the big stars of yesteryear disappoint me now. They usually play the O2, because it has a lot of seats to put bums on at £100+ per seat, and thousands of people sit in this soulless place watching the artist on the screens at the side of the stage, because they are so far away they are too small to see.
The audiences applaud politely at the end of each song, until its time to go home. It aint a rock concert like I remember rock concerts.
Almost every memorable gig Ive been to has been at a small (1500 max.) venue.
The only exception being Roger Waters at the O2, as he seemed to have worked out how to make the place feel small.

Sorry, but it's really not as bad as that. Yes, there are the manufactured acts, and the "instant fame" routes like Arsefactor etc, but there are still small venues, there are still bunches of guys with guitars and drums driving around in crap vans. I know this, as I go to see them, and when I go to see them I feel like someones grandad! My son plays 
in a small band in London in his spare time, my daughters partner sings in a band on the South Coast in his spare time. Even where I live and in Swansea there are small venues where a band can get a 40 minute slot for beer money, and to flog their CDs burned on their computer at home.

Nope. Good music is good music, whether its from the 17th century or the 21st. It just seems very difficult to find it in the 21st.
Who in the 21st century, even with all its technology can play guitar like Hendrix did in the 60,s ? By now someone should have taken the instrument on to greater levels of creativity than he did,but they haven't. Few can even properly replicate what he did then.
Every new boy band who storms the charts for a year or two are compared to the Beatles, never the boyband who stormed the charts a year or two before them.
Where is there a new songwriter who could hold a candle to Dylan, Neil Young or Randy Newman ?  ? Ed (the plagiarist) Sheeran  ?  ::)

yes most acts nowadays are just throwaway items. im talking my era here but where are the new freddie mercurys,steve perrys or lou gramms.they wouldnt even be considered these days let alone going back to sinatra,matt monroe etc. i go to places today where they have the radio on and it just seems like 1 song all day long. cannot tell where one song ends and another one starts.so bland.i know its a similar feeling for all generations vs their parents throughout the ages but im glad i grew up when i did

Too true! :y :y :y

After the 1980's, by then I had been through the music of the late 50's, 60's and 70's, the appeal of what was available seemed to have nose dived.  Glad I was born when I was ;)

Like many on here it seems I grew up with parents listening to the likes of Mario Lanza etc,they then moved on to Tom Jones,Engebert Humperdink and such,then one day a record was played on the radio and dad said "Now there's a good song well sung" I was gobsmacked it was a song called Bohemian Rhapsody!! Personally I like Mozart,Wagner etc right through to such as Pink today.Two music genres I can't get on with are rap [talking to a background of noise]and jazz[several people playing different instruments at the same time without any of them noticing what tune the rest are playing].

Human themes (experiences, emotions, hopes and fears) are unchanged since the dawn of time. The only thing which changes is how those themes are presented.

Reflect on this a while and revisit other artistic eras outside your own. Then it will all make sense ;)

The celebrity chef and restaurant owner Antonia Carluccio, aged 80

It's not that long since he was on TV. I've been to some of his restaurants, a bit hit or miss. Sometime really really good, other time really disappointing. However, the restaurants tried to provide decent Italian cooking and not just pizza at sensible prices. But, he was always quite entertaining on TV.

Strange bloke, and to be honest he's looked half dead for many years now. However The Fall were very distinctive, I saw them a couple of times and thought they were pretty good in a strange sort of way.

Funny you should say that. A very rich Christian preacher once told me that in ancient times in the middle east there was a very dangerous mountain track known as the needle, which was the most difficult place anyone could ride their camel. It wasn't impossible to get through, but required a lot of wisdom and experience.

Perhaps a bit of casual research before you opine on another person’s life.   >:(

Parking the inspirational affect he has had on generations of young athletes (although no doubt you would classify their efforts as similarly pointless), he was also a renowned neurologist, publishing a number of papers, a hospital trustee, editor of a medical textbook, and by all accounts a loved family man.

To look at it another way, the longer they live, the longer that they have to carry the burden of what they have witnessed/facilitated/been party too...

If all the staff across the Reich who didn't agree with their roles had made a stand, then their numbers would have been added to the total of those killed. Those who could, ran away, the rest simply focused on their immediate duties as a form of self defense.

There's a 2015 film called Amnesia which explores this idea.

Ah....I see. The girls would deliver the Spitfire for the men to fly.

Yes.  She delivered no less than 400 Spitfires, and 76 other types of aircraft including Wellington bombers.  To do that in unarmed planes with the Luftwaffe always ready to pounce was probably the bravest acts of all those who flew in WW2.  A real women who made all the difference and set the scene for women flying fast jets, the top rated fighters of today.

Amy Johnson was also one of those brave women of the ATA, but that famous flyer died in 1941 somewhere in the Thames Estuary whilst flying a Spitfire, demonstrating what a dangerous job it was that she, Mary Ellis, and all the other ATA women undertook to keep the brave men attacking the Luftwaffe.

He was shot down over Hanoi.  ::)

But it was his time as a POW that he was known for in the Vietnam context, as he was beaten, tortured, spent years in solitary confinement and when he was offered early release when the North Vietnamese discovered his Father a US Navy Admiral, he refused insisting that others who were captured before him be released instead.  :o

RIP.

 Some on here may know of him, Steve Bunney.
He was one of the founders of Autobahnstormers.
Steve died last from cancer last night.
A wealth of knowledge of the pre 1987 cars.
Steve had his second Bitter and multiple Monza,s in his time
He used to be the club magazine editor for several years
In recent times he was the web site administrator
he will be missed by many over at ABS

There's a similar 'expert' here who used to buy cheap but viable Capris and store them.  10 years later he has 50 cars that weren't worth repairing then(most of them were rotten low spec 4cylinder cars), and have been abandoned in a field since. He won't break or sell any parts or restore the few more covetable models because he has no skills or money to do so. Because he's a Capri enthusiast, and these are 'classic cars'

I owned a 1974 MK1 1600XL. It was white with a BVR which was popular back then.

It drove like a  lorry but when the cambelt snapped it didn't take the engine with it. :y :y :y

The there was something wrong with it.


Pintos aren't really known for cambelt failures, but only the 2.0l are non-interference. 1.6s might be OK if the belt fails at low RPM. And you can fit a new belt at the side of the road in 30minutes :y

I'm 65 in a couple of weeks currently the oldest serving officer on my specialist unit, took partial retirement at 60 & love it providing I can keep my fitness levels at their present standard & pass my self defence refresher every year I intend staying till 2022 but as we all know the grim reaper has his list & you cannot alter your place in the queue.😀

He always gets his man. ;)

Not always.  He came and had a look at me a few years ago, but whether he missed with the scythe or decided not to swing it I don't know.  :-\

I'm still here to tell the tale which is what counts!  :y

He'll be back. :)

Yep, but having met the Grim Reaper I know he's nothing to worry about.  :y

The police nor the BBC can possibly know that for certain until they investigate further.  He was in her bedroom, so he could have been a burglar, or someone known to her. I hope the police establish soon who the person is in the CCTV footage they have.

But even an image like that being published does help to identify who it could not be, and gives those who may know this individual, and has had dealings with him or her, an encouragement to get in touch with the police.  Often by process the individual meets justice, especially in this case that has stirred up much local emotion.  That makes a big difference.

We hope the police have answers soon. ;)

Lizzie, that clip does not show the true nature of the incident, if you wish to search there are "better" :( clips that do.......

Essentially, Hubert, at 170mph, goes off track to the right and hits the right hand barrier, bounces off it and comes back across the track at 90 degrees.

Correa is on the track and suddenly has a car crossing him at 90 degrees, and can do nothing about it.

Correa is doing around 170mph, Hubert has no speed in the same forward vector, all his speed is at 90 degrees to Correa, so its like sitting in a stationary car and being hit at 170mph... result .. the carnage you see.

Even if he had been in a "cage" the resultant "G" forces on his body would be horrendous and probably fatal. Correa probably only survived because his forward "vector" meant that the "G" forces were somewhat reduced...... essentially he slowed down in the same line (very quickly admittedly) but Hubert was "wrenched" through 90 degrees almost instantly.

Racing is dangerous ..... never, ever, forget it .. :(

RIP, a brave young man.

Correa is doing around 170mph, Hubert has no speed in the same forward vector, all his speed is at 90 degrees to Correa, so its like sitting in a stationary car and being hit at 170mph... result .. the carnage you see.

Even if he had been in a "cage" the resultant "G" forces on his body would be horrendous and probably fatal. Correa probably only survived because his forward "vector" meant that the "G" forces were somewhat reduced...... essentially he slowed down in the same line (very quickly admittedly) but Hubert was "wrenched" through 90 degrees almost instantly.

Racing is dangerous ..... never, ever, forget it .. :(

RIP, a brave young man.

No thanks, that is bad enough! :o :o ;)

Yes, those boys, and girls, know the dangers :'( ;)

Cages are no longer in use in single seaters. The car is built around an immensely strong carbon fibre tub, which the driver sits in.
This has ben the case since McClaren introduced the idea in the 80,s. No doubt it has saved many lives since, but there are limits to any safety device and yesterdays accident was one of those.
It happened up at the top of Eau Rouge where speeds are mind boggling. Watch the F1 race in just over an hours time and see just what kind of speeds are involved at that part of the track.
They know and accept the risks, but its always sad to see this happen. Particularly to one so young. RIP.

Having seen the aftermath, doing the same thing to a road car at motorway speeds is enough to nearly split it in two.  :'(

Ah, right.  I am out of date as usual. ::) ::)

I was also thinking of the Halo "cage", but now realise after some research that it is nothing like I envisaged as it just protects the head in F1 crashes! :o :y

The clip you linked to seems to show the "tub" of one car remaining basically intact, with everything else breaking off around it, just as designed.. the bits absorb energy then break off. thus protecting the "tub". The other "tub" is not in the shot so nothing can be said about its integrity.

The upside down "tub" of Correa slides along on the halo device, which probably saved his life.

10 years ago that would, most certainly, have been two fatalities.  :(

Andrew Cowan. A true legend.

                             Cowan, who passed away in hospital on Tuesday, headed Mitsubishi Ralliart Europe and guided Tommi Mäkinen to four consecutive WRC drivers’ titles from 1986 to 1999. The team also won the manufacturers’ crown in 1998.
He was born in 1936 and raised in the small town of Duns in Scotland’s Borders region, where he became close friends with future Formula 1 world champion Jim Clark.
After becoming involved with his local motor club, Cowan started rallying and in 1962 he won the Scottish Rally in a Sunbeam Rapier, an achievement he regarded as one of his greatest in motorsport. He repeated his victory the following year.
He became a works driver with the Rootes Group and Mitsubishi and arguably his greatest wins as a driver were in the London to Sydney Marathons.
Cowan won the 1968 event, which covered almost 17,000km in Europe and Australia, in a Hillman Hunter alongside Colin Malkin and Brian Coyle. He repeated his success in 1977, over a 30,000km route with Malkin and Mike Broad in a Mercedes-Benz 280E.
He won Australia’s Southern Cross Rallies five times between 1972 and 1976 and the world’s longest rally, the 32,000km South American Marathon in 1978. He finished Kenya’s gruelling Safari Rally in the top four on four occasions and was second in the Paris - Dakar Rally in 1985.

The Opel GT was  a 'mini exotic' back in the day. I have a road test from 1971. It cost £2294. A triumph GT6 could be had for £1272. Rover 2000 was £1675.

I think when established authors start using other ghost writers to collaborate on their later books it seems, to me anyway, that it waters them down somewhat. Clancy,s later stuff springs to mind too. I've read a few of Cusslers books and have found them entertaining Nick.  :y
