Christopher Lee - 93 years young.

Who can ever forget his parts in the eternal struggle between Peter Cushing and him from Hammer House. Amazingly kept acting right through his 80s....that I should be so lucky to even see that decade.

James Last

Big band leader James Last has died in Florida, aged 86.

The German-born musician's manager said he died at his home "peacefully and in the presence of his family".

Last sold millions of records with his trademark "happy music" - upbeat versions of pop and classical favourites performed by his orchestra.

He appeared at the Royal Albert Hall in the spring as part of a farewell tour he announced after becoming seriously ill last year.

My old Pa used to like his stuff. My Bro and I thought he was a nutter for liking it.

When I was online yesterday morning I noticed that Ron Moody had died. By later in the day he had been rather forgotten after the demise of Christopher Lee.

Sorry to hear that. He certainly livened the place up from time to time by kicking off some colossal drink-fueled rows! :)

My sympathies to his family and friends.
