He was one of Australia's most prolific and best-selling authors.

Bryce Courtenay churned out a book almost every year since his first and most popular book, The Power of One, was released in 1989.

He sold more than 20 million books since then, and recently released his last, Jack of Diamonds, but there'll be no more.

Bruce Courtenay has died at the age of 79.

He's a good-looking man, Bryce Courtenay. What a fox he must have been in his heyday!

RIP.

Wow, another iconic legend has left us.  My thoughts and prayers go out to the Hagman family.  Rest in peace, sir.

RIP Mr  Courtenay.

The many books he wrote will go on being favourites. The Power of One will never be forgotten.

That is really sad Lin... Brubeck was a giant among jazz musicians and composers...
Nearly 92, he had a good innings... but there just arnt that many jazz legends left..
Im gonna play his music all day tomorrow in his honour, and in the evening open a decent
bottle of red and watch that excellent documentary again...

R.I.P Mr Brubeck.... and thankyou.

Very sad to hear of Brubeck's passing.

We had a thread on "that excellent documentary" (as Gant calls it), Dave Brubeck: In His Own Sweet Way ... Clint exec produced. The theatrical premiere was here in New York just about two years ago, to celebrate Brubeck's 90th birthday:

http://www.clinteastwood.org/forums/index.php?topic=6604.msg173405#msg173405

Bruce Ricker produced and directed; he is gone now, too. It was his last film.

Here's a link to the New York Times obit:

Sir Patrick Moore dies at 89.

Anyone in the UK and around the world, who is interested in astronomy will know of Sir Patrick. He has presented The Sky At Night for nearly 50 years. He will be sadly missed by many people.

RIP Sir Patrick.

Sad to hear of the passing of Ravi, a huge influence on many and Oscar Miemeyer, Im a big fan of modernism
and of course Patrick Moore who so many of us here in the UK grew up watching on tv over many, many years...
Patricks gone back to where he came from...  :) R.I.P to all of them.... All three have left behind a great legacy of work... Ya can't beat that...
