R.I.P. Steve Jobs

Steve Jobs

So Steve Jobs has passed away. OK – so I am new to the Apple fan boy party but my respect for Jobs comes primarily with his involvement in the Pixar movie production house – the people that brought you Toy Story, Finding Nemo and my fave, Monsters Inc. He was an ill man who struggled for a long time and proves no matter how powerful, rich and successful you are, death is truly the leveller.

Nice Job, Jobs…

David Bedford R.I.P.

I just heard that composer David Bedford has passed away. I came to him via his association with Mike Oldfield and remember at the height of my record collecting days (late 80s-early 90s) being completely entranced by his “The Odyssey” album. I was due to see him in November when he was due to appear with Roy Harper, but alas that moment has passed. I was really looking forward to it too.

This is a track that he and Oldfield did in 1977.

And here’s a link to his website.
