Goodbye, Terry Jones

The Nudge Nudge sketch with Terry Jones and Eric Idle in 1971

I was planning to write something else but then I read the sad news. The beloved Monty Python member Terry Jones has passed away. He was diagnosed with dementia in 2015. In 2014 Monty Python reunited. It’s difficult to imagine that a year later Terry Jones wasn’t the same anymore. I went to see the show in the movie theatre and I also have it on DVD. I was glad I went to see it. It was ‘live’ so it was almost the real thing.

Goodbye, Terry Jones and thanks for the laughs. Say hello to Graham Chapman from us here on Earth. Rest in Peace.

RIP Dolores O’Riordan

This week the music world faced another shock. The singer from ‘The Cranberries‘, Dolores O’Riordan passed away. It hasn’t been said what the cause of her death was. She was only 46 and she was full of life. It’s a shock for her family and band members but also for the fans. It’s such a shame people die when they still have years to live.

I remember when I studied for the first time in another city and the girls who lived in the room beside mine (and my roommate) kept playing the song ‘Zombie’ and at the time I didn’t like The Cranberries at all. It was only years later I began to like the band. How things change over the years. I wouldn’t call myself a fan but whenever I heard them on the radio, I didn’t change the channel.

My favourite song is ‘Salvation’ so I decided to post this video. She will be dearly missed.

RIP Dolores O’Riordan
