"Seventh Python" Neil Innes, 75. Writer performer musician, he wrote things like "Knights of the Round Table" in Grail (where he was also the serf crushed by the giant "trojan rabbit"). He was a Rutle, wrote all the Rutles songs, and he was founder of The Bonzo Dog Doo Dah Band.

Cleese and Palin weigh in with their remembrances, along with Stephen Fry, Charlie Brooker, Diane Morgan and Billy Bragg.

Buck Henry.

I would see him hosting SNL, and wonder who he was and what he was famous for.

Apparently he wrote scripts and made movies from behind the camera.

Neil Peart was a shocker.

I use a Rush-based name on another forum. It feels a bit stupid today.

Christopher Tolkien, 3rd son of J.R.R. Tolkien.

He edited much his father's work, and drew the maps for The Lord of the Rings. He was 95.
