She is the squirrel who we initially called The Edge because of her habit to sit on the very edge of the squirrel feeder, but we renamed her after she spent a full day hiding in our house and causing mayhem while we were in bed.

I always used to use the Z-forum topic to check back on who died this year, to prepare for the AIVD puzzle. This is the first year I can't rely on that.

Like every year, going through the lists on the Dutch and English Wikipedias, there are people of whom I didn't know they passed on.

One is Dutch architect Wim Quist, who made one of the most famous Eindhoven landmarks.

Back in the day all the girls wanted to be Renee Geyer…..

'The irreplaceable Renee'

Australian music industry pays tribute to singer Renee Geyer


Callum Godde and Duncan Murray
07:22, Jan 18 2023



Melbourne-born Renee Geyer, one of Australia's most respected and successful soul singers, was discovered to have inoperable lung cancer while being treated in hospital.

The Australian music world is mourning singer and ARIA Hall of Famer Renee Geyer after her death from complications following hip surgery at the age of 69.

Melbourne-born Geyer, one of Australia's most respected and successful soul singers, was discovered to have inoperable lung cancer while being treated in hospital.

She died surrounded by family and friends, her record label Mushroom Records announced on Tuesday.

"Naturally, we are all utterly devastated," a statement said.

"Just last month, Renee sang to a full house and was looking forward to another busy year ahead doing what she loved most.

"She lived her life as she performed - to the fullest - and her passing leaves a giant void in the Australian music industry."



Fellow soul singer and friend Kate Ceberano said Geyer carved the word woman into the psyche of the Australian music mentality.
Geyer fronted a number of bands in the 1970s, including jazz-rock group Sun, before beginning her four-decade solo career.


In 1973, the first of her 15 studio albums was released.

But it was her 1974 cover of the James Brown classic It's a Man's Man's Man's World that launched her to a mass audience.

The singer was inducted into the ARIA Hall of Fame in 2005 and became the first woman to be inducted into the Music Victoria Hall of Fame in 2013.

She also received the inaugural Lifetime Achievement Award at the Australian Women in Music Awards in 2018 and appeared on the ABC's music quiz show Spicks and Specks.

Mushroom Group chief executive, Matt Gudinski, who is the son of legendary promoter Michael Gudinski, said Geyer was a "fierce, independent, strong and passionate" trailblazer for women in the music industry.

"Renee always did things her own way and we loved her for that," Gudinski said.

Geyer continued to perform and release music after she was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2009, with her last album released in 2013.

A 2013 poll ranked her the seventh-best Australian voice of all time.

Fellow soul singer and friend Kate Ceberano said Geyer carved the word woman into the psyche of the Australian music mentality.

"You strutted into our hearts and lives with your soul in your sleeve," she wrote on Facebook.

"Renee the powerful, the diva, the brutal, the original, the temperamental, the stellar, the shapeshifter, the original, the unforgettable, the irreplaceable Renee!"

Australian music legend Marcia Hines described Geyer as a game changer, a soul diva, her sister in song and possessing one of the greatest voices she has ever heard.

Joe Camilleri of The Black Sorrows described Geyer as a "singer's singer."

"Let's not forget the many who were influenced by Renee. Her contribution should never be forgotten.Soul free in sweet harmony," Camilleri posted on Facebook.

Geyer sang backup vocals on a number of Hoodoo Gurus albums, prompting the band to post on social media she had changed all their lives for the better.

"Renee was a fiercely original talent who carved out a huge legacy in Australian music," the band posted.

A memorial for Geyer will be held at a later date.

Back in the day all the boys wanted to be Larry Morris…..

NZ music legend Larry Morris dies, 75, leaving behind a half century of music

Ryan Anderson
16:30, Jan 18 2023



Larry Morris, musician and Kiwi rocker has passed away

NZ Music Hall of Famer Larry Morris has passed away late on Tuesday night, leaving behind a music career spanning more than 50 years.

Morris was a legend of the New Zealand music scene, who still performed up until recently at local Auckland bars.

Long-time friend and singer/songwriter Rietta Austin said Morris was a best mate.

“He was one of those people who inspired you, he could be himself in a world of music where nobody is allowed to be themselves any more.”

“He was just an awesome dude.”

The pair had performed many times together and had planned to do more songwriting in the future.



Morris became the frontman of The Rebels early on in his career, which later re-branded to Larry’s Rebels

Morris was a musical hero in New Zealand – someone who was genuinely talented and a freaking great mate, she said.

“He was a rebel to the end.”

Posting about his passing, the NZ Music Hall of Fame called Larry’s Rebels the first great homegrown pop band of the modern pop era.

“Our condolences go out to all who knew Larry (and that’s a lot!), his friends, family, and to the Rebels – Viv, Nooky, Terry and John.”

“Rest in peace Larry”.

Audio Culture’s Simon Grigg said Morris was one of the greatest figures in New Zealand music.

“Talented both as a singer and a songwriter, absolutely unique and a man who defined his era,” he wrote in a tribute to the late rock star.

There has been an outpouring of tributes for Morris online, with many calling him one of the best ever Kiwi entertainers.

Speaking to Stuff before his 70th birthday in 2017, Morris said he was in the happiest space he had ever been in his life.

"I have a wonderful wife, Gloria, I'm looking after my parents with her help. I have just released two records. Life couldn't be better.

"[Early in my career], when it came time to sort out a name for the band, the other members said, 'well, Larry is the frontman, let's call it Larry's Rebels.
I was very anti the idea, because it wasn't my band but Nooky, Terry and John were emphatic it was the way to go.
I would have preferred it had had just stayed as The Rebels, but that's not how it turned out and the rest, as they say, is history."

In their early days Larry’s Rebel became part of New Zealand pop history with five consecutive top 10 hits and a style and swagger about them
that led their management company to use the phrase "lock up your daughters: Larry's Rebels are coming to town”.

Unfortunate. But I get your point. I think back to when I was a just a kid and I think about my Grandfather. At the time, he was just in his 60s....an age I am rapidly approaching. I think to myself whether I could see him strutting across a stage in front of 50K people. The answer is no. But there I am out there still gigging (not to 50K ).

Sad news from The Black Page:
R.I.P. Jim Gordon, born James Beck Gordon (July 14, 1945 – March 13, 2023)
In 1972, Gordon was part of Frank Zappa's 20-piece 'Grand Wazoo' big band and the subsequent 10-piece 'Petit Wazoo' band.
He can be heard on albums like Imaginary Diseases, Wazoo, Little Dots, Waka/Wazoo, Apostrophe ('), and Läther.
His best-known recording with Zappa is the title track of the 1974 album Apostrophe ('), a jam with Zappa and Tony Duran on guitar and Jack Bruce on bass, for which both Bruce and Gordon received a writing credit.
Zappa, when introducing Gordon onstage, frequently referred to him as "Skippy", because of his youthful appearance.

My sister passed away last night, aged 76. She lived in Sydney, so 1600 km (1000 miles) away and we weren't particularly close, but kept in touch. She'd been freaking me out for some time with her attitude, after becoming an alcoholic during the Covid-19 squeeze. It seems she just gave up on life. My main feeling about it, is that it is just completely weird and not something I would have in any way predicted about her before Covid-19 came along. Makes me even more determined to follow through with my own plans.

Someone you will not have heard of, but is one of the reasons why I wanted to be a composer:

Ruud Bos (82) , composer

I met him when he was judging at an arts competition my school was partaking in. Upon seeing he would be judging in the music categories, I found myself a place near the judges' table so I could ask him for his signature. Which, as he confided in me, didn't happen a lot, that people asked him for his autograph.
But I have it.

Took me a cold shower too - Gijs Scholten van Aschat, an actor, knocked over his water glass, soaking the T-shirt I had painted for the occasion.
