So Long, Neil

Cancer has claimed the true "Fifth Beatle", Neil Aspinall.

You can read all about him to your heart's content all over the internet. My own thoughts are those of a guy who was there from the beginning, who was always loyal and as Apple's main-man, made sure that all the new products they released were up to snuff.

Making up a list of The Beatles, their wives/girlfriends and the others in the "true" inner circle, I'm stuck by the high body count. We've lost half of them: Stu, Brian, Mal, John, George, Maureen, Linda, and now Neil. All gone and all too young.

Let's hope that Paul, Ringo, Pete, Cynthia, Yoko, Jane, Patti, Olivia and George Martin will all live to be about 100.
