Very sad news from the D (I should start a Detroit thread, just to get some people's goats.  But there's plenty of activity)

Russ Gibb who owned the iconic Grande Ballroom in Detroit has passed away at 87.   Many a late 60s and 1970s band rolled through there.  In fact it was a coming of age to play the Grande (pronounced Grandy).
RIP
SC

Here's a quick read: Russ Gibb Remembered.

EDIT - Gibb is the one who started the 'Paul Is Dead' rumour re: Beatles.

Genesis P-orridge did appear on a recent podcast. Actually doesn’t sound too bad at the moment, although if you read the background P-orridge did go through a really gruesome surgery that the anesthesia wasn’t handled properly...

For someone who is surely a gold standard future DL pick, John Cooper Clarke doesn't have his own thread (?) but was on Desert Island Discs earlier! Sounds OK, all things considering, but bloody hell he's aged a fair bit in the last few years
