Wednesday 13 December 2023. Another sad death to report. JEFFREY FOSKETT has died of thyroid cancer , age 67 . He was a big part of The Brian Wilson Band and The Beach Boys over recent years, as he helped with the high notes etc. Saw many great shows at The Royal Festival Hall when Brian Wilson resumed touring, and Jeffrey was part of that great band....also when he was with The Beach Boys at The Royal Albert Hall. -------------------------------------------- -------------------------------------------- Monday 11 December 2023. Shock news that JOHN ' RAMBO' STEVENS has passed away. Looks like he has a heart attack. He was John Lydons manager , personal security and closest friend. He had unwavering loyalty to John, that was above and beyond. You would see him side of stage at Sex Pistols and PiL gigs , keeping an eye on things , or indeed anywhere that John went. John Lydon will be gutted , as he recently lost his wife Nora. See my Facebook page for a photo I took of the three of them at The BMI Awards around a decade ago , when John Lydon got the Icon Award.
