It's the way of all flesh, of course, but what a loss. I saw him (and the Dubliners) play in Rotterdam's De Doelen some five years ago. They weren't exactly sprightly, and mr McKenna did most of his banjo strumming while sitting on a stool. Nevertheless, the old men played as if they'd done nothing else in their lives. Their encore of The Town I Loved So Well moved me to tears.

Hein

No links I'm afraid, but I heard this evening that the slightly obscure folk singer Louisa Jo Killen was diagnosed with lung cancer last August, although I have no information about how she is doing now. She is probably better known (but still not well known enough for a Wikipedia page) as Louis Killen, however she underwent gender re-assignment surgery at the age of 75...

I'm sure she'll get a broadsheet obit when she goes. -_-

Doc Watson is still breathing, something I only discovered today. A little more than can be said of his son Merle who died in circumstances suited to a Monty Python sketch in 1985.

Merle was DIYing after midnight - as you do - when a huge splinter became embedded in his arm. He showed awesome powers of calm and pain tolerance, driving his tractor to neighbours who helped him remove the splinter and bandage himself, only for the tractor to lock its brakes on the return journey, throw him off and fall on top of him, crushing him to death in seconds.

Doc Watson is in hospital with pnuemonia and suspected kidney failure, which is never a good thing to have, especially if you happen to be 89 years old.

This is a tad confusing, so bear with me. :huh:

The comedian and folk singer Sid Kipper is apparently in very ill health and will retire after a farewell appearance at the Whitby Folk Festival later this summer. However, the problem here is that Sid is actually a fictional character played by Chris Sugden and I'm not sure if the ill health I've heard about is affecting just Sid, or both of them. Sid was once a member of The Kipper Family with his dad Henry, played by Dick Nudd. That act ceased when Henry was killed off after Dick decided to retire from the music business (s/he is now believed to be living as a woman in Ireland).

So, in summary, I've got no links to suggest a person who doesn't exist in real life - and whose alter ego might not get an obituary anyway - has an unspecified health condition which may or may not be life threatening. Got to be worth a gamble, surely?

Hmmm, sounds like a Frank Sidebottom job...can't find much by way of Googling to suggest he's that obit-worthy, mind. Local papers etc count for the Deathrace, so it might be worth anyone likely to enter that competition marking their cards for his demise being reported by BBC North East, or summat.

Maryport is a disappointment for which there is no cure, but the annual Deathrace thread hereabouts provides welcome distraction.
