The first things I thought when I heard this earlier were

1 - isn't he already dead?
2 - Who will post this on MN!

I remember my parents had one of his books in a bookcase at the top of the stairs when I was a child, and I used to go up to bed, and try to pronounce his name - and wish I had such an interesting one.

Snap Gordonbrown. A day in the Life was one of my faves during my early twenties! How strange...I was talking about him today too. Hope he rests in peace.
