Has anybody heard anything on Peter Macbeth since he was locked up for kiddy fiddling? They didn't want him incarcerating cos he was that close to death. *cough* allegedly *cough*


He was jailed

Last I heard was that he had 3-4 years left to live. But that was back in 2008

MacBeth, from Trefriw, near Llanrwst, North Wales, said he was downloading the porn as research for a book.

He was a founder member but as you say - does that make him a pop star?
Everybody knows Ozzy simply because of who he is but Iommi is really just one of the guys.

Pop and funk musician Jimmy Castor, who was known for his 1972 hit "Troglodyte (Cave Man)", is gone at age 64.




A lot of you might not know who he is and what music he made. Including me for a time. But his music had something in common with the godfather of soul himself, James Brown: His music was sampled to death. If you don't recognize anything in these tracks, you might as well be tone-deaf.
I'm sure there are a lot of samples you recognize from Troglodyte.


Also, It's just begun was also a massive source of samples.



Most notable tracks that used his music were:
Beat dis - Bomb the bass
Pump Up the Volume - M|A|R|R|S
Weekend - The Todd Terry Project
Big hits that had a funk foundation from the Jimmy Castor Bunch.

But you'll really get a sense of his influence when you see the full list of tracks that used his music.
Here are four pages of tracks!

Edit to add- He goes on my personal DDP List of the Missed. He made the master list of Ronnies but was not thought a viable candidate.
