Sean Hughes. Stand-up comic, though I mainly remember him as a team captain on Never Mind the Buzzcocks.

Only 51. Sounds like he was in quite poor health - liver disease and died of a cardiac arrest.
My face is tired.

Wow. He always had a bit of a poor mans Shane McGowan vibe about him to me.

Regardless 51 is far too young to be popping the old clogs.

Really sad to hear that one. A band I have loved for over 30 years, and irrespective of anyone who believed that Angus was the lynchpin of the band, for me the backbone of AC/DC was always Malcolm Young, standing at the back of the stage with Cliff Williams and providing the constant AC/DC sound.

RIP Malcolm Young - Ride on!

Time for Angus to hang up his cap and let us remember a great band as they were.

Damn, I saw them in Donington back in the 80's, genuinely awesome.
Agree with you tbh Snowy, once a band has lost most of it's original members but keeps going it's in danger of becoming the Trigger's broom joke in Only Fools & Horses.Time to bow out on a high.
