You know Wombat - I was on my way to work last week, and I was flipping between station to station because most radio shows in the morning feature nothing but talk or commercials, and I did catch a snippet that somehow inferred that he had died. But I wasn't sure. It wasn't a statement or eulogy. And I was outside all day, so when I got back home I immediately googled him and found out. It is sort of wierd. I see stories on my homepage of people dying that I have never heard of. And I didn't see any mention of this. Anywhere. But those of us that were around back in the 70's will never forget him. Baker Street still, in my mind, is one of the seminal songs of those times. Gone, but certainly not forgotten.
