A great 'keeper.....That's a shame. :(

Still remember seeing his amazing save from Pele in the 1970 World Cup....I'm sure they'll be showing that on the news.

Sadly true, Steve.

Bruno Ganz, the actor probably best known for playing Hitler in 'Downfall'. A harrowing film but with superb performances all round, especially Bruno's.

Inevitably there are now parodies of Hitler learning of Mr. Ganz’s death (I apologize for the various US political references but they seem balanced across the spectrum)

 Great shame hame about both of those !! :(

I still remember 'Mr Preview' on the Morcambe and Wise show from decades ago. An almost timeless bit of comedy.

At least Andre Previn had a fair innings (89), unlike Kieth Flint. Forty nine...Good grief !

A shame !  :(

I have a vague recollection of my dear old Mum taking me to see a recording of a radio show, when I was very young. (Easy Beat ?)
I think it featured the Walker Brothers and the Ivy League, and a couple (?) of other 'artistes'......But it was so long ago, I really can't be positive who was on the show that day.

Shame, indeed. So young (only 56?)! I'm sure it was him and The Beat we saw live in May 2018 at the BBC Biggest Weekend in Scone, Perth - only 3 months before his stroke and diagnosis - remember "Mirror in The Bathroom" was one of the numbers played.
