Musician Deaths - 2018
#1
Well that sucks. Ray Thomas has passed away. It was his birthday just before new year. He was 76 - had had prostate cancer which was under control with treatment and I'm not sure it was related to his death which was sudden and unexpected. Aside from being a multi-instrumentalist and flautist of note, he seems to have been well liked; warm, kind and good humoured. 

Thank you for all the music Mr Thomas and sorry you didn't get to see the Moody Blues HoF induction. R.I.P.  Sad

^Yes - I saw that. Need to have a proper listen to Hopes, Wishes and Dreams
Wasn't crazy about From Mighty Oaks but an invaluable member of the Moody Blues and an allround nice guy, purportedly. 
Sorry to be the bearer of bad news!

RIP. Was never a fan. I found her vocal style very irritating. Probably an overdose of sorts. And just like CH I can't think of a single track or album title.
