Monty Python was one of the ways my warped mind found out it wasn't alone. smile

To this day, those who quote Python to me pretty much instantly become a brother...or sister - sorry, Loretta!

Thank you, Terry!

He's not dead, he's just sleeping.

Like my dad, Terry Jones was battling dementia. I know too well that it is a cruel disease. It's not like he was expecting the Spanish Inquisition.

That's a shame. When I go, I hope it's quickly and with minimal impact.

The python quotes are no disrespect whatsoever to the recently deceased. Terry Jones would had wanted it that way. Look how the (then) surviving members of Monty Python, about 30sec in this video, made a sketch out of placing the urn containing the ashes of Graham Chapman on the table...

Such a huge loss, even though he was by no means the messiah....

read about this yesterday, sad, sad, news


A reason why I collect old keyboards is that I feel partly responsible for doing it, responsible for preserving history and being a custodian for these things
Plus, old gear has a story. I like that.

I saw a lovely cartoon today. It was Terry Jones walking through the Pearly Gates and smiling at the sight of Graham Chapman sitting on a golden throne smiling back at him.

"Brian!"
"Mum!"

Rest in peace, Terry. You'll be missed. (Cue the naked organist, who isn't the Keyboard Corner mascot but SO should be.)

By all accounts, Terry Jones was a complete gent and a nice guy-in addition to being hilariously funny.

Cheers, Mike.

I was thinking the same thing.

"Always look on the bright side of death..." (Cue whistling)

I'm afraid I'm having trouble doing that right now.

RIP Terry. You will be missed.

Best,

Geoff
