Ouch - promising careers cut short in a horrid way

The crash that killed both members of British band Her's and their tour manager was caused by a "wrong-way driver", according to US authorities.
Stephen Fitzpatrick, 24, and Audun Laading, 25, died in the collision in Arizona while travelling to a gig in California on Wednesday.
Officials in Arizona said a Nissan pick-up had been "travelling eastbound on the westbound lane" of Interstate 10 before hitting the duo's Ford van.
There were no survivors.
The band, whose members met as students at the Liverpool Institute of Performing Arts (LIPA), were driving about 350 miles from a performance in Phoenix, Arizona to Santa Ana in California.
In a statement, the Arizona Department of Public Safety said the crash happened at about 01:00, shortly after it first received reports of the wrong-way driver.
'World at their feet'
The band's tour manager, 37-year-old Trevor Engelbrektson, from Minneapolis, had been driving their van, the department said.
The other driver was named as Francisco Edward Rebollar, 64, of Murrieta, California.
"Both vehicles were engulfed in flames," the department said.
"There was no roadway evidence to indicate braking by either vehicle prior to impact. An alcoholic beverage container was located in the debris field."

The second up-and-coming group from our area to die in such a way. In 2016 Viola Beach were in Sweden touring when their car fell off a bridge, killing everyone.

The lead singer was from Norway, the other guy from Cumbria.

Too young to die regardless.

Eta: It should also be noted that two other guys died in the crash. The fact that they weren't talented musicians makes their deaths no less significant.

André Pevin, composer, classical musician, and also an accomplished jazz musician who spent some of his career as an orchestral conductor, has died a few days short of his 90th birthday, on 28/02/2019.

Anne-Sophie Mutter provides a look back at his career here.

Best known here in the UK for his appearance on The Morecambe & Wise Show, where he wasn't afraid to be the butt of their jokes. He composed the soundtracks for 50 movies, and actually won an Oscar for best soundtrack for his contributions to My Fair Lady (there's one to toss into your Trivial Pursuit question list!). Despite "officially" retiring as a composer of soundtracks for MGM in the 1960s, he continued to work in this field, providing music for Rollerball as his last major soundtrack project.

It's probably ironic that more of his work will become known after his death, than during his life. His career from the late 1960s onwards, the Morecambe & Wise sketch notwithstanding, can probably be described best as "prodigious but not conspicuous". Those in the know will probably have an abundance of Previn anecdotes to deliver, and I expect Orpheus may turn up here and start delivering some of those anecdotes. :)

I only just found out about this. Bleh.

Of course, if the normal news wasn't being drowned out by all the fucking Brexshit wankery, I might learn about this sort of event as it actually fucking happens, the way I used to.

Bibi Andersson, who has died aged 83, appeared in 10 features and three television films by Bergman, which included such masterpieces as The Seventh Seal (1957), Wild Strawberries (1957) and Persona (1966).
