The first time I heard of him was at the university where I attended a class about computer history and the early years of cybernetics. We were watching a documentary by German director Lutz Dammbeck called The Net from 2001. Robert Taylor has a guest appearance. He talks about his work on the ARPANET project and the original philosophy behind the internet. You can watch it here from about 8:35.

Default Emma Morano

The world's oldest person has died in Italy at the age of 117, reports say.

Emma Morano was born on 29 November 1899 in the Piedmont region of Italy. She was officially the last person born in the 1800s still living.

She had attributed her longevity to her genetics and a diet of three eggs a day, two of them raw.

Ms Morano was the oldest of eight siblings, all of whom she has outlived. She died at her home in the northern city of Verbania.

Her life not only spanned three centuries but also survived an abusive marriage, the loss of her only son and more than 90 Italian governments.

RIP

Bruce Langhorne
May 11, 1938 - April 14, 2017

American Musician


"The title character of Bob Dylan's song "Mr. Tambourine Man" was inspired by Mr. Langhorne, who used to play a large Turkish frame drum in performances and recordings. The drum, which Langhorne purchased in a music store in Greenwich Village, had small bells attached around its interior, giving it a jingling sound much like a tambourine."

I'd like to pay some respect to John. What a gun! He was so funny! We've definitely lost a great presence in Australian entertainment. He did so much.

Just one of many funny mock interviews he's known for. I think non Australians would even find such interviews on Australian politics, where you wouldn't know the context of the interview, funny as well.

https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=vnuAh3esdpE

His documentary Sporting Nation was also a terrific viewing. I think it would even hold the interest of non Australians.

That hits deep.
I hope this year is better than last. We have lost so many real musicians in such a short time.

Re Clifton James (Sheriff Culpepper Live and Let Die/The Man With the Golden Gun) I had no idea he was still alive I thought he had died years ago. I think his comical redneck sheriff(always calling people 'boy') was funny but his re-appearance in TMWTGGun was better as a loud-mouthed tourist. His line(when he realises what Bond is planning with the rickety bridge) "you're not thinking of..." to which Bond replies "I sure am BOY!" was brilliant and he served well as a foil to Roger Moore. He joined a select few that appeared in more than one James Bond film (Maud Adams TMWTGGun & Octopussy, Richard Kiel(Jaws) The Spy Who Loved Me & Moonraker)

Allan Holdsworth
1946 - 2017




Allan Holdsworth was not just another great guitar player. He changed the approach to this instrument like no other musician in the past 50 years. For me personally, Allan Holdsworth and Shawn Lane were the greatest guitar players in fusion and rock music of all time. Allan played with so many great musicians during his long path: Soft Machine, Jean-Luc Ponty, Tony Williams, U.K., Ian Carr's Nucleus, Bill Bruford and many more. But he always did his own thing and was never a mere hired gun. He was an influence and inspiration to all his colleagues.

The cause of his death is still unknown but he didn't look healthy in the most recent videos I've seen. It was Allan's daughter Louise who informed the public of his passing and can be read here.

Rest in Peace, Allan. I've listen to your music for so many times that it feels like I lost a family member. You were a hero and inspiration to many.
