It's weird how some celebrity deaths make you stop and think more than others.
Barry Chuckle is one of them for me, not sure why, maybe due to my age and growing up with the chuckle brothers being on TV, or that him and Paul seemed to be genuinely nice people, with a great camaraderie.

To you Barry, to you...

Yeah, funny that. Sad to hear though, I absolutely loved The Hart Foundation. That was right around the time my mate got cable TV (first down the street) and I used to go to his house, order a pizza and watch wrestling. Oh how I wish I could do something so simple these days and get the same level of pleasure from it. I really felt like I was king of the world.

This is the kind of heavy-handed moderating I'd like the next elections to address. Surely it's been six months by now?

Super upset about that one. The Last Ninja will forever be the greatest game ever made and the music was one of the main reasons. I’ve listened to the music for the first three levels (and loading screens) innumerable amounts of time. RIP.

I used to just put the tape in for TLN just to listen to the music - when i eventually got a disk drive for my C64 I had a disk that just had the musical files ripped from it so i could put that in and just listen to it over and over again - it is incredible

I'm genuinely quite sad about Ben Daglish dying, he wrote the soundtrack of my youth in a lot of ways, along with Martin Galway, Rob Hubbard, Tim Follin, Dave Whittaker et al

I know you're supposed to be a Spectrum fan if you're a Brit but I always preferred the C64 as its sound hardware was so much stronger, and the miracles these guys could work with the SID chip blew me away then, and still blow me away now.

I'd often load a game I didn't even want to play, just to listen to the loader music, and then the title/game music.

Ben seemed to be a genuinely nice guy as well.

The Last Ninja remains one of the finest game soundtracks ever created. I actually didn't care much for the game itself, I played it for the music.
