Yes: Stirling Moss
Easily in my top few sports heroes and one I met and spoke to personally.
I have a photo from the LA Times Sports section of Moss, Phil Hill and a handsome unidentified UC Riverside freshman in deep conversation in the Riverside Raceway pits. c.1960.

RIP bassist Matthew Seligman, 63. COD: COVID-19

Not a lot of people will know about this gent but he was highly influential on me.

Thomas Dolby, Robyn Hitchcock, The Soft Boys, Thompson Twins... he was in David Bowie's band for Live Aid, and guested on many many recordings. People knew he was one of the good 'uns.

Old school British rapper, highly respected, very talented - 47 years old. COD: COVID-19


Ty, the acclaimed, Mercury-nominated UK rapper, has died aged 47 after contracting coronavirus.

The Nigerian-British musician was known for a witty, mature style that owed more to the old-school US rappers than the grittier street sounds of London.

In 2004, his second album, Upwards, was nominated for the Mercury Prize alongside Amy Winehouse, The Streets and eventual winners Franz Ferdinand.

His death was mourned by stars including Ghetts and Roots Manuva.

DJ Charlie Sloth called him "a friend, a role model and a true foundation to UK rap".
