This is a thread to reminds ourselves of those we have loved and lost this year, famous or personal. I have a terrible memory and the only deaths I can remember being affected by are Gil Scot Heron, Poly Styrene and Ari Up. I'm hoping someone will remind us of others. Sunspots used to be good at remembering but AFAIK he doesn't post anymore. The first person to mention Osama, Gadaffi or Kim Jong Il as a 'joke' will get a swift boot up the arse!
