Ah gelati just saw this. I exchanged a few emails with him years back after drunkenly sending him an email about how "One More Frozen Orange Juice" was my parents' love song and I'd just heard it on the radio that day! I looked it up on the net and found an email address and thought I'd send a forgotten 60s dude a message about how he'd influenced people in a good way. I thought it was just a nice gesture, but it turned into deep and meaningful conversations about songwriting! He thought he was an under appreciated Dylan/ Cat/ Leonard, poor bugger. Nice guy though.

Sad to hear. Can someone link the orange juice song?

Ah thanks. A killer for me because I know my parents and it was their lovesong, cheesy as it is. My mum had just left the convent and my dad was a playboy. "You rescue me, I rescue you." That's why I wrote to him. (I wouldn't share that with many people, but an internet forum is a "safe space" )

Debatable whether someone like that is a celebrity and of course he was already scheduled to be executed on 11Jan when the post was made. Nevertheless, someone is off the mark! I'm sure we will have better than this though our the year though.

OK ... what if I told you that Dr Black has just been discovered at the bottom of the cellar stairs, a victim of foul play!?
