I think I was probably scared of Grotbags when I was young.

Everyone was scared of Grotbags! I also think that it's a brilliant name.

When I was five or six, I was taken to a pantomime which had Grotbags in. She terrified me, as I sat gripping the seat in the dress circle. She strode up and down the stage, telling us children how she was going to cancel Christmas and break all our toys. I cannot remember what did it, what the breaking point was, but I was suddenly sobbing hysterically.
At the interval, my friend's parents took me home. I must have ruined my friend's birthday. Sorry, Karen P. But, Grotbags, you were amazing.

Never really a fan although I saw them support Deftones at the Docklands Arena in 2000. Sad to hear he's left six children without a father though.

Sam Shepard. I was wondering why the name didn't ring a bell, so I looked through his acting credits and I've only seem him in 'Killing Them Softly' - a film I can barely remember anything about.

Who was 91... not 85. I thought the second bbc news alert correction was going to say he hasn't died after all. I remember him well from All Creatures Great & Small but can't think of who he was in the HP films.

Also wrote Paris, Texas which is one of my favourite films, and was in the magnificent Days of Heaven, the only film I can tolerate Richard Gere in. He was a great playwright in the Raymond Carver vein too. I'll miss him.

Hywel Bennett has just died too. He'll always be Croup, from Neverwhere for me. "Croup and Vandemar, the Old Firm, obstacles obliterated, nuisances eradicated, bothersome limbs removed and tutelary dentistry undertaken." But he was also sterling in Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy.

I've just googled it and I can't honestly say I've heard it (or heard of it) before.

To be honest, until he died, I'd never heard of Glen Campbell either. I guess he quite a big deal though.

Have you heard Rhinestone Cowboy before? I had a backyard wrestling thing on the go once and we had a wrestler called "Bradley Flifer". He was a cowboy and came out to this tune.

I've heard Rhinestone Cowboy, but I never knew (or cared) who sung it. Really not my type of music.
