One we missed. Willie C Jackson, the last original member of The Spaniels, died back in February. http://www.chicagotr...0225-story.html

 

And to think I was only watching the BBC Four series Rock 'n' Roll America and who is there in Episode 1? http://www.bbc.co.uk...-little-sixteen. I highly recommend this series if you want to put a team together for next year.

 

Anyway, here's Goodnight Sweetheart Goodnight: https://youtu.be/X4p9RSShJcA

Great catch, great post. Appreciated Y-Dub. Mulligan was a big name in jazz back in the day.

With the death of Val Doonican, that leaves Eric Clapton and Princess Anne as the only two people mentioned in the lyrics of "The Intro and the Outro" (except for the Bonzos themselves) to still be with us.

The last of the Train Robbery Squad who investigated the 1963 Great Train Robbery, (then Detective Sergeant) Stanley "Steve" Moore, 88. http://www.thetimes...._medium=twitter

 

Probably the most dramatic arrest when he pursued Roy James across a rooftop. He became a DCI before he retired.

Seems we need a place for 'the last of the Mohicans' as it were. I recall last year the last survivor of the Hindenburg and the last surviving Navajo Code Talker dying, and they should be noted not necessarily for being terribly famous, but for the sad end of an era in the history of mankind from which first-hand accounts are no longer available.

And with that, I present 98-year old Gus Villalta, who died May 26, 2015, just one day before the 78th anniversary of the Golden Gate Bridge's opening, and who was very likely the last living person who worked on the bridge.

Maurice Faure, the last-surviving signatory of the Treaty of Rome, dead at 92.Where's that poster with the UKIP tendencies, he'd be good value here.


I thought we had a thread for animals somewhere, couldn't you find it?
