I'm sorry about the passing of your friend, Ben. Was he as young as the pic depicts on his passing?

The last of the "Golden Girls". Sad news, but she certainly had a good innings. I was amazed at seeing appear in quite a few fairly recent TV series, she never seemed to show her age and apparently as fit as a fiddle. We were thinking of my Mom's 100th (and beyond) as well, but she passed away very suddenly end unexpectedly just three weeks after her 98th birthday.

Burke Shelley of Budgie has squawked his last: he ceased to be on 10 Jan. He was, I think, one of the more influential songwriters in one of the more influential (and most overlooked) bands in the development of 'heavy metal'. And with a sense of humour and flair for irony, too. He'd been ill for some time. https://www.theguardian.com/music/2022/jan/11/burke-shelley-frontman-with-welsh-rock-band-budgie-dies-aged-71

Very sad to read this - Budgie was a huge influence to me growing up in the late 70's/early 80's and history will give Burke and the band the place they so rightfully deserve in the pantheon of the truly great.

Rock on Burke!  :notworthy:

Brian Cox died on Monday 10th January.  He was well known to the Cape Town audio brigade and had a good following of nearly everyone with the hobby

I first met Brian in 1983 when visiting Charles Strever, the then Chairman of the Hi-Fi Club

Brian had a house at the top of Meadowridge always filled with the most exotic audio equipment.   Some 8 foot high Beveridge electrostats come to mind

One notable meeting at his house, then in Kirstenhof was in the 1990s when Mr van den Hul himself came and spoke to us

Brian ran a successful car repair workshop in Wynberg for many years

I mentioned yesterday a meeting in 1991 at Brian Cox' house where Mr A J van der Hul came to give a talk

Here is a photo taken at the event:  AJ vdH on the left, Dr Stefan Erasmus, Jack Horsten
