Interview with DDP pick Jock Scot here. Nothing of particular interest: he's still refusing chemo and describes his condition as "stable". Should apparently have been dead by October last year according to doctors.

Ah, no wonder I couldn't google him. His name is spelt wrong in the DDP list! Also, is it time for a "chemotherapy causes cancer" conspiracy theory yet? Martin Crowe could join.

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.
