RIP Kevin Smith (Silent Bob)

Quoting Griff on FB :

Now that Kev's sister has posted on his FB page, I can let everyone officially know that, sadly, Kev passed away on Wednesday, having contracted covid whilst in hospital being treated for ongoing kidney problems. Too fucking sad.
RIP, Kevin Smith, aka Silent Bob on BCB. You were a good fella.
Play some New Order / Joy Division in his honour today, will you.

:cry:

Just like to add I met Kev a couple of times in person at Jolly Up's but really got to know him the past 11 months via FB - he's been a regular contributor to our twice weekly Synch Listens. Lovely guy - such a terribly young age to go. RIP Kevin - you were a good, kind man. :cry:

Very sad news indeed. I always enjoyed his contributions, particularly stereo gear subjects. He was very passionate about those things. RIP.

R.I.P., Kevin.

I have to admit I was confused by this - I thought the thread was about the filmmaker Kevin Smith, who played Silent Bob in several of his own movies. I didn't know our Silent Bob had the same real life name...

It was an intentional/knowing pun Charlie.
