Goodbye Holger

I found out yesterday that Holger Czukay died on the 5th of this month. It is so sad. I have been listening to his music and collaborations for over 30 years now. Some time ago I went to see him live at the Roundhouse in Camden. It was a great show. He had so much energy. It was such a fun show.

I will be listening to his music over the next few days and enjoying it, remembering what an incredible innovator he was, and how he influenced so many creative people. He’ll be missed by many. He will be missed by me.

Goodbye Gareth, you will be missed

I can’t believe that I didn’t pick up on this last week, and I also can’t believe that Gareth Thomas has died. What a shame, only 71 as well, that’s not old these days. He was brilliant as Blake in Blake’s 7, which is a great favourite of mine. I feel like the world of Blake’s 7 is much smaller as a result.

I’m also thinking that I should now re-watch the entire TV series and also re-listen to all the audiobooks. That could take quite a while, but would of course be worth it.

I also wonder what Big Finish will do now in terms of the next step for their audio series for Blake’s 7? I do hope that they continue it somehow.
