Either that, or the whole Russell Brand and Jonathon Ross fiasco with his granddaughter finally got to him! RIP Manuel.

Yeah, Lake was a fantastic singer and multi-instrumentalist, but the most people will have heard of him is a seconds-long sample in a Kanye West song. Such is life.

Moving on, John Glenn died at the age of 95. One of the original Mercury 7 astronauts and the first of many Americans into orbit. Definitely someone with The Right Stuff.

His Christmas song is probably my favourite. I haven't heard it this year yet now that I think about it. R.I.P
Retro is a state of mind, and cares not for your puny concepts like dates and calendars.

Anybody else thinking that 2016 is building up into one big final celeb death before the year is out? Reckon it'll be someone like the Queen or Paul McCartney.
