Goodbye UB40’s Brian Travers. A true Bohemian. RIP. What? The Rolling Stones drummer? AND a popular DJ?

So sad. RIP #UB40 talent and decent, lovely Brummy bloke, Brian Travers. We would occasionally meet up at the Hare and Hounds pub in Kings Heath and spoke about a musical idea a while ago. Not to be now. But Brian and the band were true to the Bohemian spirit with their record label, DEP.

Then Rolling Stones drummer, Charlie Watts. Then a DJ I used to work with at BRMB Radio in Birmingham. And since I recorded this little ramble, I heard that an actor I knew when she was 18, who went on to become a successful agent, has also passed away! All under 60! What a week!

“Though lovers be lost love shall not;

And death shall have no dominion.”

Dylan Thomas.
