Poet & Songwriter Rod McKuen dies aged 81.

 

Perpetrator of this heinous musical crime:

 

Among McKuen’s commercial successes in the 1960s and '70s were his reworking of Jacques Brel’s song "Le Moribond" for the English-language version of 'Seasons In The Sun', later covered by the Kingston Trio and Terry Jacks.

Yes, if ever a classic was untouchable and if ever a song was done wrong, it was Le Moribund.

Jon Stallworthy

The College will be profoundly sad to learn of the death of Professor Jon Stallworthy on 19 November, at his home. Jon Stallworthy was one of this country's most admired poets, for many years a central and leading figure in the English Faculty at Oxford, and at the heart of Wolfson College's life and community.

This could go in the Academics thread, but he is probably familiar to more people for his poetry.

A DDP miss, although I had pencilled him in after seeing him on a doco about WWI soldier poets the other night :(
