Phil Cornwell - he used to sing "Hey, hey, get off of my cloud"... hold on, heavenly clouds, "Dead" Ringers... rat poisoned pigeons... conspiracy...]

Hi 3d,

Yeah, bit of a shock, and a real shame - an unexpectedly likeable guy. Doubt we'll see his type again.

I couldn't help but laugh, though, the irony of the Happy Mondays putting on a benefit gig to buy Wilson drugs...
