    I didn't think people actually died until 2016 happened.

    I, erroneously, put poor old Peter Sarstedt into the 2016 section. Alas the old chap has gone from us.

    turn up the bass and Buddy Greco's version of "What's Going On" is pretty groovy, from this Tony Hatch produced LP:


    can't read all the Telegraph obituary because of the paywall, but didn't he live in Southend for a long time? Always seems a bit incongruous, sort of Stella Street-style when US stars live in pretty ordinary places.

    He did (which was news to me until I read the obit) - he loved the place by all accounts:

    http://www.echo-news.co.uk/news/1124...d_is_the_best/

    "“When Buddy does his shows he says how he’s lived in some of the great cities like New York, Chicago and Rome, but then he says he now lives in the greatest city of them all, Southend. "

    I had a copy of this in my hand in a charity shop a week ago (at which point I didn't know of his passing). In the end I left it, might go back and see if it's still there.
