Paddy Maloney RIP
Co-founder and leading force behind the greatest Irish folk group of all time, the Chieftains, aged 83.
They recorded 44 albums 1964 - 2012
Beloved by many generations through their collaborations with contemporary stars such as U2, The Pogues, Sting, Sinead O'Connor, Elvis Costello, the Rolling Stones, The Who, Mark Knopfler and Van Morrison.
They contributed to the film soundtracks of "Braveheart", 'Gangs of New York" and "Barry Lyndon". 
In a piece of brilliant timing, they did their "Goodbye Tour" in 2019 and early 2020 before the Covid pandemic shut everything down......

Particularly for the last two who lived to nearly a hundred, I saw a quote something along the lines of ‘if you lived to nearly 100 and people say you died too soon it says something about the quality of your life.’

Bob Saget - Aged 65              RIP

Absolutely brilliant comedian whos stand-up was as far away from the mild mannered character Danny Tanner on Full House he played.

Also by far the best at retelling the "aristocrat" joke.
