I remember seeing his Frankenstein pages for the first time and being blown away.

Really amazing work.

His illustrations for Stephen King's The Stand are also worth searching out.

He designed the monsters for the Film the 'Mist' based on Stephen Kings great Novella. His comic work is second to none and those cross-hatching lines are just immaculate. So long Bernie. Damn.

Aye, a rum bugger - by all accounts - but he could certainly write a tune, and his recordings from way back still sound absolutely brilliant today. And he was most probably THE most influential guitarist ever. A true one-off.

RIP, Mr B.

Despite hearing the news yesterday and working in London  (not that vicinity),and noticing the increased amount of police officers at Victoria station on my way home, it was reading the Metro this morning, and seeing the pictures that really brought it home to me emotionally.

In particular, a woman kneeling down helping a literally broken man in the street.

Shocking news. My heart goes out to the victims and their loved ones.

Yes - I work in the area and noticed sirens every minute or two just before going in to a meeting at three.  The sirens continued until hometime (five o'clock yesterday).  There's still lots of roads closed off in the area, though some are for ongoing roadworks.
