Rock legends not dead yet

'Rock Legend Dead' screamed the Evening Standard billboard today. I wondered which of the five truly legendary rock and roll survivors had passed away - Chuck Berry, Jerry Lee Lewis, Bo Diddley, Little Richard or Fats Domino. Thankfully it was none of these. Apologies to Pink Floyd fans, but the passing of Syd Barrett hardly comes into the category of 'rock legend dead'. Not only was he a founder member of one of the most boring groups of all time, but he hasn't even recorded or performed since 1972. So I think I'll save my tears for the true legends.
