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.

Roy Harper's trial has started, his alleged victims (i.e. those claiming he had sex with them whilst they were underage) were extremely young at the time so it may, just, be time to drag this thread high and consider how he's doing (legally and health wise).

Just to close this, Harper was acquitted of 2 charges and the jury dismissed after failing to reach a verdict on the remaining charges.

Even if he gets found not guilty, the lyrics to his song The Black Cloud of Islam - conspicuous by it's absence from youtube  - may ruffle some extremist feathers.  Hopefully Harper's new found prominence won't  mean his back catalogue comes to the attention of ISIS....although I suppose it isn't entirely likely that a bunch of crazed jihadists will sit around the campfire in Syria listening to McGoohans Blues

 

 

 

 

Harpers back catalogue also includes Forbidden Fruit which openly discusses having sex with an underage girl and specifies she is 14.
