    thanks for adding that... I am glad he annoyed you enough for you to take the 3 secs of your life to speak your mind

    Soooooo bummed! I loved Rik. I have been worried about Tracy, hoping he'd be ok and then today Rik!

    Loved Young ones, and Bottom.

    This really hit home today because I loved the Young Ones so much. He was only a year older than me too. (Yeah, I know, I'm old. WTF)
    Good night, funny man. :(

    Rik and the lads also produced and stared in a documentary on a fake band called Bad News

    they even did a sequel in which they performed at the Monsters of Rock at Castle Donington in front of a real live and drunk crowd without telling the crowd that it was a joke

    One of the great bluesmen of all time. I thought he was older than 56.

    Young Ones was great, but I loved Bottom at least as much...probably even more.
