  1. Damn, we could have done with him doing 'Stand down Teresa' in these troubled times.

    RIP Roger. One of my earliest singles was said single.

  2. I absolutely adore The (English/UK) Beat and General Public - 56 is so young to go!
    RIP Ranking Roger - he was such a lovely person as well - a true gentleman!

  3. Love The Beat and General Public.
    Way too young, very sad for his family.

  4. My fave "The Beat" songs - ten for a starters' playlist:

    1 I confess
    2 Save it for later
    3 Can't get used to losing you
    4 Drowning
    5 Mirror in the bathroom
    6 Best Friend
    7 Tears of a clown
    8 All out to get you
    9 Monkey Murders
    10 Stand down Margaret - Dub Version

    Bonus song is "Tenderness" by General Public!
     
  5. Now that is a list. Their music has aged so well.
     
  6. I was impressed by him on that (maybe not quite so) recent revamp of BBC's Pop Quiz, when he was a guest. And then last year one of his solo tracks from the Noughties was in a song contest (probably an PJ00s one, I guess) and I liked it so much I bought the download on QoBuz.

    56 is no age, and it sounds like he suffered a lot towards the end.
     
  7. It's 'too nice to talk to' you again @Eric Generic
