    The one thing that stopped me in my path more than any other was learning of Princes Diana's passing - it just seems like yesterday, not nearly 20 years since (and to think too the Internet was "only just" being known about then) in 1997

    Upon hearing about poor Jill Dando being shot dead was another event that stopped me in my tracks in 1999 and Linda McCartney dying in 1999 also too

    22nd November 1990. Margaret Thatcher resigned. There had been ripples of discontent in the Conservative Party for a while. When it happened, it was so sudden. Even her staunch followers were shocked how fast she went. I well remember stepping outside the office where I worked, the sun was shining, and everybody was walking around has if an almighty weight had been taken off their shoulders.

    I remember one of my teachers describing the leadership vote as "history in the making".

    For me freddy mercury and kenny everett both of the same disease and so young.
    Keith Moon of The 'Oo - they actually didn't die that close but, to my young mind, they seemed to die in quick succession, at mid-'77 to late '78...

    Bolan - 16 September 1977
    Moon - 7 September 1978
