in reality, all of this has been a total load of old bollocks

I’ve said it elsewhere. Doesn’t make it less so. This is painful.
It’s too soon for me to play JD. Just the first NO album again.
the Eagles suck.

I only recently put two and two together with his given name and his board name. :lol:

For whatever reason, we didn't interact much, but I have a strong impression of him: insurance dude who loved New Order, nice wine, and hifi stuff. I think that's about right, at least. What a dreadful end, and much too soon. RIP, Silent Bob!

Yeah, we had engaged quite a bit about hi fi. Not fair, not fair at all.

Really sucks when we lose one of our own. It's happened too many times.

Not sure we ever interacted much. We weren't Facebook friends as I am with lots of folks here. But he seemed like a decent sort.

Loved his board name. Sympathies to his family.

I saw the convo on FB when he went missing and hoped for a good outcome....sadly not to be
RIP mate.

Me too, but I wasn't aware of who he was until his board name was mentioned. Very sad news.
