    Also, to get this thread back on topic.

    Sabine Schmitz, AKA Queen of the Nürburgring, has passed away at 51 from cancer. Probably the greatest female race driver of all time, and great fun to watch on Top Gear whenever she was on screen.

    And now Dusty Hill has died. ZZ Top used to always find their way onto the stereo at home when I was growing up and I always love busting out their greatest hits every once in awhile.


    It's gonna be fun switching between early Slipknot and ZZ Top all week tho, definitely a few differences in tone and energy between the two.

    Sean Lock, one of my favourite British comedians, has died at 58 from skin cancer. Absolutely hilarious guy.


    Found out whilst actually watching some old 8 our of 10 cats episodes with the missus, so at least he gets to cheer us up himself.

    Norm Macdonald RIP

    On his battle with cancer: “I’m pretty sure, I’m not a doctor, but I’m pretty sure if you die, the cancer dies at the same time. That’s not a loss. That’s a draw.”

    Alan "Nuff" Lancaster - Status Quo original bassist and Party Boys member here. Died in Sydney from MS aged 72.

    Tough little s***. Famous for knocking out four Vienna airport staff wanting to cavity search him, getting the band chucked in the clink.

    Loved his versions of "Roadhouse Blues"
