The Grim Reaper strikes again

They say it's a sign you're growing old when the first thing you look for in the papers is the obituaries page. Sure enough I must be reaching that stage, despite appearances to the contrary, because I do look and there are familiar names listed every time I do. The Grim Reaper has been busy cutting a swathe through British musicians of the 60s and 70s this week. Today's Times includes brief obits of Denis Payton, sax player with the Dave Clark Five (also in the Indy), Dave Mount, drummer with Mud, Mariska Veres, singer with Shocking Blue, and Freddie Marsden, drummer with Gerry and the Pacemakers (also in the Guardian). Sadly, nothing on Rick Hardy.
