    Another liverpool legend, 70 seems quite 'young' these days, but as you said clearly the Parkinsons has taken its toll, yet another horrible disease.

    Rest in Peace.

    He had Parkinson’s since 1984 apparently so very young really .

    Must have been hard for his family to see him go from top athlete to being so reliant on others and suffer as he did.

    Michael Nesmith, singer, guitarist and songwriter with 1960s pop group The Monkees, has died at the age of 78.

    The quartet enjoyed hits like Daydream Believer and I'm A Believer, and starred in their own popular TV sitcom.

    Nesmith wrote numerous tunes including Listen To The Band, Sunny Girlfriend and Tapioca Tundra.

    In a statement, his family said he "passed away this morning in his home, surrounded by family, peacefully and of natural causes".

    Fellow Monkees band member Micky Dolenz said he was "heartbroken" at having "lost a dear friend and partner".

    "I'm so grateful that we could spend the last couple of months together doing what we loved best - singing, laughing, and doing shtick," he tweeted.

    The Wurzels drummer John Morgan has died after catching Covid while on tour aged 80. :( He had been with the band since 1981, i'll raise a glass of cider to him in the pub this afternoon which is in the heart of Somerset and we love The Worzels. :cheers:

    The actress who played iconic character Truly Scrumptious in Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, Sally Anne Howes, has died aged 91.

    Grew up with films like that and Mary Poppins/Sound of Music etc and still make a point of watching them every Christmas.

    RIP
