Not sure whether this should go here, in the Shove Off, Eh thread or the Dead Pop Stars thread, but this isn't very promising for one of my great great heroes. :-(

 

 

BBC News saying she was in good spirits, though she is in the ICU. I'm guessing something circulatory/cardiac (given her history as a life-long smoker).

John Renbourn, guitarist with folk group Pentangle, dies at 70. http://www.heraldsco...-70-x.121737895


Bugger :( , he was meant to be in the pish up here in the next week or two.

Mate has an unreleased documentary on him filmed in Spain that Renbourn refused to let get released.

Need to work on him for it I reckon.
