House of Shem lead singer Carl Perkins has died aged 59.

The House of Shem guitarist and singer was diagnosed with terminal bowel cancer in February, 2017 (three days before his 58th birthday) and died on Wednesday, two weeks after his most recent surgery.

As news of his death spread throughout the NZ music community, the Foundation NZ Reggae page posted a tribute saying that Perkins was "a true pioneer and champion of reggae music here in Aotearoa".

Perkins, who began his international career as a musician and songwriter with iconic Kiwi band Herbs, is survived by his wife and five sons.

A great editor makes the work of a very good director into excellent work.

We always see films re=released with some catchy wording like "director's cut" but it's the original print of the film which is probably most likely to be called "editor's cut".

Sad news, only 69 years old :cry:
Kidder had some cameos in the new millenniums TV-series smallville (that tells the story of supermans youth) like Christopher Reeve and other actors from the original superman movies.

There's now disagreement over whether he was born in 1930 or 1931, so he may have been 88.

Sudden death: Guitar legend Phil Emmanuel dies in Parkes

AUSTRALIAN guitarist Phil Emmanuel has suffered a sudden asthma attack and died overnight ahead of a scheduled performance at Cootamundra Hotel.

GUITAR legend Phil Emmanuel has died suddenly after suffering an asthma attack in Parkes, New South Wales overnight.

Phil, 65, was reportedly staying with his brother Darcy at the time and had several shows, including a performance at the Cootamundra Hotel, booked this weekend.

“On behalf of the family, it is with great sadness that I announce the passing of our much loved brother, Philip Ernest Emmanuel,” Darcy told Fairfax.

“We are all devastated.”

Phil was also the brother of another Australia star guitarist, Tommy Emmanuel, who is understood to be touring in London at the moment. Their sister Virginia Grace, died just weeks ago, aged 69, on April 14.

Phil and Tommy played together as the Emmanuel Brothers — as well as individually — and graced stages all over the world alongside other music greats including Slim Dusty, Chet Atkins, Duanne Eddy, America, Hank B Marvin, John Farnham, Jimmy Barnes, Ian Moss, INXS, Dolly Parton and Willie Nelson. He has been described as “Australia’s greatest electric guitar player”.

Phil is survived by his wife Amanda and his children Jessie Maree, Jamie Lee, Georgia Dee and Marshall Travis.

The guitarist had been working as a professional musician since he was nine years old. He started in the family band: “The Emmanuel Quartet”, which also went by the names to “The Midget Surfaries” and “The Trailblazers”.

Phil played lead and Tommy played rhythm guitar, along with their brother Chris on drums and their sister Virginia on slide guitar, according to his official website.

The Emmanuel siblings earned the family’s sole income for several years in the 1960s. It was
invaluable experience that was to set the stage for what went on to be an extraordinary career.

^^^The brother Tommy, who is now known as an acoustic guitar virtuoso, is very popular in Northern California and I’m sure many other places.

I've seen Tommy Emmanuel six or seven times in NZ a couple of times when I was undercover in Australia and once in Thailand.....I only saw Phil once in, of all places, Perth.
I don't remember a whole lot, I was very very drunk at the time.

Serge Dassault dies at 93. His father invented the Mirage fighter aircraft. He invented the Rafale (better than the F-35 ! for less money).
His company also invented and marketed the software (Catia) that made this, and many other projects possible.....

Image

He was also a politician and was being investigated for putting enveloppes of cash in his constituants mail boxes. He was France's fourth richest man.

Rest in peace, dumbass.

Sadly, he's too old for a Darwin Award. The gene pool is now just as scummy as it was last week, when this dipshit was fucking around on mall escalators...

It IS hard, particularly with a wheely joystick when your brain has to try putting a vertical motion into a horizontal motion.
