Speaking of the mighty Mott the Hoople, I was sad to hear of the passing of their bass player Pete Overend Watts on Sunday.

I'm pleased that I managed to see Mott perform on their last tour and will always remember being intrigued by their records as a child, with exotic names like Pete Overend Watts and guitarist Aerial Bender! Unlike the improbably named Mr Bender, Pete Overend Watts was actually the bassist's real name.

Former Formula 1 and motorcycling world champion John Surtees has died at the age of 83.

Surtees is the only man to have won the grand prix world championship on both two wheels and four.

He won four 500cc motorcycling titles - in 1956, 1958, 1959 and 1960 - and the F1 crown with Ferrari in 1964.

It must be an age thing - I'm beginning to be more aware of obituaries, it's probably a realisation that my eggtimer of life has now got more grains of sand in the bottom than the top :(

I either think crikey ( or words to that effect :lol ) he/ she is younger than me, or like this death they were around for so much of your life.

My Dad had an infuriating habit of singing the first line of his I am a lineman for the county song - amending to I am a linesman for Notts County. It wasn't funny but it had the frustrating thing of staying in your head all day when it had been on the radio *,

My Dad died earlier this year so I had to have a little chuckle to myself when this song featured on the BBC news obituary of his death
