    Dave Prowse, the Bristolian former bodybuilder best known for playing Darth Vader in the original Star Wars trilogy, has died aged 85.
    Prowse was cast as Vader for his imposing physique, even though the role was voiced by James Earl Jones.
    But the weightlifter-turned-actor was most proud of playing the Green Cross Code Man. The role, promoting road safety in the UK, earned him an MBE.

    RIP Big Man.Look right,look left,then right again<rose><rose>

    Former Liverpool manager Gerard Houllier has died at the age of 73.
    The Frenchman managed the Reds from 1998-2004 and led them to five major trophies, including the FA Cup, League Cup and Uefa Cup treble in 2000-01.
    Prior to Liverpool, Houllier managed Lens, Paris St-Germain and the French national team, and after leaving the Reds won two Ligue 1 titles at Lyon.
    His last managerial job was at Aston Villa, but he left in 2011 after nine months, following heart problems.

    One of the nicer football managers RIP<rose><rose>

    Edrich and Boycott, possibly the best opening partnership in England's history. Saw them a few times at Lord's and the Oval on leave from the RAF.

    Mary Wilson, who co-founded The Supremes and remained a member of the group until they split up, has died at the age of 76.
    The singer passed away at her home in Henderson, Nevada, her publicist Jay Schwartz announced, but he did not confirm the cause of death.
    The Supremes were known for hits such as Baby Love and You Can't Hurry Love.
    The group was founded in Detroit as The Primettes in 1959, when Wilson was 15 years old.

    Another great from my teenage years.
