Leon Spinks. Took the title off Ali in the ring but lost it back immediately. Another sad tale of a champ losing his millions.

Christopher Plummer another of the top elite of Hollywood gone.

Most famous for Sound Of Music but was another Giant of stage and screen.

U-Roy ! RiP..

it is with great sadness i put this mans name down here. A pioneer of reggae 'toasting' and cornerstone of the revolution of Jamaican soundsystem culture and the forerunner to Dancehall, Rap and Hip Hop.

The Originator ! may he be rocking the Chalice in the Palace ! Jah Rastafari !

a lot of the stuff we've seen and heard live here is because of Gudinski putting it together, so kudos to him for that ..

The home of Dusty
Michael Gudinski. Bit of a shock.

Very sad news.

Got a glimpse into how big a figure he was in the music world globally once when in London and even the Australian Cricket team wasn't able to get tickets to a sold out event. A call was place to Gudinski and 20 back stage passes procured.

Gudinski along with Mushroom pretty much was the Music scene in Australia apart from a few standouts.

Was involved in nearly everything in some way shape or form be it as a record company to the force in promotion that is the Frontier Touring Co.

The Sunbury Music Festivals in the aerly 70's really helped to put Aussie Music and Himself on the map.
