    "He was like family to me," Mr Ecclestone said. "We were like brothers".
    That just about covers it, really.

    He wasn't a bad sort. His contributions to safety in F1 were considerable.

    He was also the only one of the big F1/FIA names that went to Ratzenberger's funeral instead of Senna's.

    And say what you like about Bernie but him and Mosley made F1 a massive commercial success. Before they took control it was a rich boy's racing club.

    F. Lee Bailey, celebrity attorney who defended O.J. Simpson and others, has died at 87


    The RIP Famous Person Thread-download-jpg

    F. Lee Bailey, the celebrity attorney who defended O.J. Simpson, Patricia Hearst and the alleged Boston Strangler, but whose legal career halted when he was disbarred in two states, has died, a former colleague said Thursday. He was 87. Bailey died at a hospital in the Atlanta area, according to Kenneth Fishman, Bailey's former law partner who went on to become a Superior Court judge in Massachusetts.

    Fishman did not disclose the cause of death, but said Bailey had moved to Georgia about a year ago to be closer to one of his sons and had been dealing with several medical issues for the past few months.
    "In many respects, he was the model of what a criminal defense attorney should be in terms of preparation and investigation," said Fishman, whose legal association and friendship with Bailey dates to 1975.

    In a career that lasted more than four decades, Bailey was seen as arrogant, egocentric and contemptuous of authority. But he was also acknowledged as bold, brilliant, meticulous and tireless in the defense of his clients.

    "The legal profession is a business with a tremendous collection of egos," Bailey said an in interview with U.S. News and World Report in September 1981. "Few people who are not strong egotistically gravitate to it."

    Some of Bailey's other high-profile clients included Dr. Samuel Sheppard — accused of killing his wife — and Captain Ernest Medina, charged in connection with the My Lai massacre during the
    Vietnam War.


    "I have never known a greater intellect than that possessed by F. Lee Bailey," said J. Albert Johnson, Bailey's longtime legal partner and childhood friend.

    Bailey, an avid pilot, best-selling author and television show host, was a member of the legal "dream team" that defended Simpson, the former star NFL running back and actor acquitted on charges that he killed his wife, Nicole Brown Simpson, and her friend, Ron Goldman, in 1995.

    In a tweet Thursday
    , Simpson said, "I lost a great one. F Lee Bailey you will be missed."


    Bailey was the most valuable member of the team, Simpson said in a 1996 story in The Boston Globe Magazine.

    "He was able to simplify everything and identify what the most vital parts of the case were," Simpson said. "Lee laid down what the case's strategy was, what was going to be important and what was not. I thought he had an amazing grasp of what was going to be the most important parts of the case, and that turned out to be true."

    Bailey earned acquittals for many of his clients, but he also lost cases, most notably Hearst's.


    Hearst, a publishing heiress, was kidnapped by the Symbionese Liberation Army terrorist group on February 4, 1974, and participated in armed robberies with the group. At trial, Bailey claimed she was coerced into participating because she feared for her life. She still was convicted.


    Hearst called Bailey an "ineffective counsel" who reduced the trial to "a mockery, a farce, and a sham," in a declaration she signed with a motion to reduce her sentence. Hearst accused him of sacrificing her defense in an effort to get a book deal about the case.


    She was released in January 1979 after President Jimmy Carter commuted her sentence.


    Bailey made his name as the attorney for Sheppard, an Ohio osteopath convicted in 1954 of murdering his wife.

    Sheppard spent more than a decade behind bars before the U.S. Supreme Court ruled in a landmark 1966 decision that "massive, pervasive, prejudicial publicity" had violated his rights. Bailey helped win an acquittal at a second trial.

    Bailey also defended Albert DeSalvo, the man who claimed responsibility for the Boston Strangler murders between 1962 and 1964. DeSalvo confessed to the slayings, but was never tried or convicted, and later recanted. Despite doubts thrown on DeSalvo's claim, Bailey always maintained that DeSalvo was the strangler.

    Throughout his career, Bailey antagonized authorities with his sometimes abrasive style and his quest for publicity. He was censured by a Massachusetts judge in 1970 for "his philosophy of extreme egocentricity," and was disbarred for a year in New Jersey in 1971 for talking publicly about a case.

    Bailey was disbarred in Florida in 2001 and the next year in Massachusetts for the way he handled millions of dollars in stock owned by a convicted drug smuggler in 1994. He spent almost six weeks in federal prison charged with contempt of court in 1996 after refusing to turn over the stock. The experience left him "embittered." He eventually won the right to practice law in Maine in 2013.


    Francis Lee Bailey was born in the Boston suburb of Waltham, the son of a newspaper advertising man and a schoolteacher.


    He enrolled at Harvard University in 1950 but left at the end of his sophomore year to train to become a Marine pilot.

    He retained a lifelong love of flying and even owned his own aviation company.


    While in the military, Bailey volunteered for the legal staff at the Cherry Point Marine Corps Air Station in North Carolina, and soon found himself the legal officer for more than 2,000 men.


    Bailey earned a law degree from Boston University in 1960, where he had a 90.5 average, but he graduated without honors because he refused to join the Law Review. He said the university waived the requirement for an undergraduate degree because of his military legal experience. Bailey was married four times and divorced three. His fourth wife, Patricia, died in 1999. He had three children.

    Ned Beatty, ‘Deliverance’ and ‘Network’ Actor, Dead at 83

    The RIP Famous Person Thread-dc9eaa78-4645-4f8e-8750-cb32dcbfc7cd-jpeg

    Ned Beatty, the Oscar-nominated character actor known for his scene-stealing roles in Deliverance, Network, Superman and Nashville, has died at the age of 83.


    TMZ first reported that Beatty died Sunday morning in his sleep surrounded by family, with the actor’s manager later confirming to Variety that Beatty died from natural causes.


    A veteran of over 150 films and television roles, Beatty made his first big-screen appearance in 1972’s Deliverance about four men whose canoeing trip goes tragically awry. (In perhaps the movie’s most culturally enduring and infamous scene, Beatty’s character is assaulted by “mountain men” and forced to “squeal like a pig.”) Deliverance later earned a Best Picture nomination and was selected for preservation by the Library of Congress’ National Film Registry.

    Beatty and Deliverance co-star Burt Reynolds would share the screen together over the next decade, with Beatty popping up in Reynolds-starring vehicles White Lightning, Gator, Stroker Ace and Switching Channels.


    In 1976, Beatty was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor for his essentially one-scene role as TV chairman Arthur Jensen in Network, an appearance that produced one of cinema’s best cameos and greatest monologues.

    While his screen time was limited mainly to supporting roles, the Kentucky-born actor also made memorable appearances: In Robert Altman’s Nashville as the husband/manager of Lily Tomlin’s country singer, in Superman and Superman II as the bumbling sidekick of Gene Hackman’s Lex Luthor, in All the President’s Men as a Miami district attorney, in Rudy as the father of Sean Astin’s title character, and in the comedy Back to School as the dean of the college attended by Rodney Dangerfield.


    In one of his final roles, Beatty lent his voice to the villainous stuffed bear Lots-O’-Huggins in Toy Story 3.

    Kenneth Kaunda: Zambia's first president dies aged 97



    Kenneth Kaunda, Zambia's first president and one of the last of the generation of African leaders who fought colonialism, has died aged 97.

    Kaunda was admitted to a military hospital in the capital, Lusaka, on Monday suffering from pneumonia. His aides said he did not have Covid-19.

    In the 1950s, Kaunda was a key figure in what was then Northern Rhodesia's independence movement from Britain.


    He became president following independence in 1964.


    As head of the left-leaning United National Independence Party (UNIP), Kaunda then led the country through decades of one-party rule.

    He stepped down after losing multi-party elections in 1991.


    "I am sad to inform we have lost Mzee," Kaunda's son, Kambarage, wrote on his late father's Facebook page, using a term of respect. "Let's pray for him."


    Zambian President Edgar Lungu said the country was mourning "a true African icon".


    "I learnt of your passing this afternoon with great sadness,"
    he wrote on Facebook. "On behalf of the entire nation and on my own behalf I pray that the entire Kaunda family is comforted as we mourn our first president and true African icon."


    The government declared three weeks of national mourning with all forms of entertainment suspended.


    The Nelson Mandela Foundation said Kaunda's contribution to the struggle against colonialism and apartheid would not be forgotten.


    Another tribute came from Kalusha Bwalya, former captain of the Zambian national football team, who said Kaunda had made "an immense impact".

    Takashi Tachibana, a dogged reporter and intellectual powerhouse whose investigative reporting toppled a prime minister, died on April 30 of acute coronary syndrome. He was 80.

    The RIP Famous Person Thread-takashi-tachibana-jpg


    Tachibana rose to fame after an article of his appeared in the monthly Bungei Shunju magazine in 1974 that uncovered scandalous financial dealings of then Prime Minister Kakuei Tanaka, who had enjoyed wide popularity because of his humble upbringing.

    The article led to other media reports about various money trails that eventually led to Tanaka’s resignation. Tanaka was later found guilty in the massive Lockheed bribery scandal.

    The scandal involved the Marubeni Corporation and several high-ranking members of Japanese political, business and underworld circles, including Finance Minister Eisaku Satō and the JASDF Chief of Staff Minoru Genda. In 1957, the Japanese Air Self-Defense Force wished to buy the Grumman F11F-1F Super Tiger to replace the F-86 Sabre then in service, but heavy lobbying by Lockheed of the key LDP figures led to the adoption of the F-104 instead.
    Later, Lockheed hired underworld figure Yoshio Kodama as a consultant in order to influence Japanese parastatal airlines, including All Nippon Airways (ANA), to buy the Lockheed L-1011 TriStar instead of the McDonnell Douglas DC-10. On February 6, 1976, the vice-chairman of Lockheed told the Senate subcommittee that Lockheed had paid approximately $3 million in bribes to the office of Japanese Prime Minister Kakuei Tanaka for aid in the matter.

    Philippine former president 'Noynoy' Aquino dies at 61



    The RIP Famous Person Thread-https-3a-2f-2fs3-ap-northeast

    MANILA -- Philippine former President Benigno "Noynoy" Aquino has died at the age of 61, according to several government officials.
    The cause of death is not immediately clear, though local media has reported he was rushed to Capitol Medical Center in Metro Manila on Thursday. The former president, a bachelor, was known to be a chain smoker, which raised concerns about his health while he was in the office.

    Aquino, son of democracy icons former Senator Benigno Aquino Jr. and former president Corazon Aquino, was president from 2010 to 2016.

    The younger Aquino ran on a campaign to clean up a government riddled with graft and corruption. He presided over six years of economic growth and rising foreign direct investment. Under his watch, the Philippines won investment grade ratings from major debt watchers.

    On the foreign policy front, Aquino bolstered defense ties with the U.S., sealing the Enhanced Defense Cooperation Agreement, which gives American troops an increased presence for longer periods in the Philippines.


    In 2013, his administration took China to a U.N. arbitration court over a South China Sea territorial dispute, a legal case Manila won about a week after Aquino stepped down in 2016.


    After the election of incumbent President Rodrigo Duterte, who hails from a different party, Aquino stepped out of the political limelight, rarely commenting publicly on controversial policies, such as the brutal drug war and Manila's diplomatic pivot to China.

    The last British soldier to work on the infamous bridge on the River Kwai has died at the age of 104.

    The RIP Famous Person Thread-tdxx7tbapcjjllzwocqb-jpg


    Lyle ‘Bill’ Hutley, of Mildenhall, was one of 60,000 Allied prisoners of war forced by the Japanese army to endure horrific living and working conditions during the construction of the railway between Thailand and Burma.

    For nearly four years he, and his comrades, suffered unspeakable treatment at the hands of their captors at the notorious Changi gaol and as they worked on the death railway, so called because of the thousands who died laying the 258 miles of track through the jungle and across the River Kwai.


    A Bermondsey boy, born as the First World War was still raging, Lyle had started work at 14 then, like so many of his generation, found himself called up to serve in another global conflict that would change his life forever.


    With the Royal Artillery Service Corps he was part of the British Expeditionary Force sent to France in 1940.


    But by then the Army was already in retreat and Lyle and his comrades found themselves on the beaches at Dunkirk waiting to be evacuated.


    In 1939, Lyle had met Ivy, the love of his life, and the woman who in May 1941 became his wife and shared his life until her death in 1997.
    Two weeks after their wedding Lyle had been posted to Africa and it would be four years until he saw Ivy again.


    On arriving in Africa Lyle’s regiment’s orders had been unexpectedly changed and their ship was sent on to Singapore, arriving in February, 1942, just 10 days before British forces surrendered to the Japanese and Lyle found himself a prisoner of war.


    Despite his treatment, Lyle survived and eventually returned home in 1946 weighing less than six stones and with memories so terrible he never spoke of them to Ivy, whose love had sustained him through the darkest times of his life.

    The war years took their toll and the couple did not have children but they enjoyed nearly 60 years together. Two years after Ivy’s death, in 1999, and accompanied by his nephew, Bill Ripper, Lyle returned to Changi Prison when he was finally able to lay the ghosts of his years as a POW to rest.

    Well that's a pretty good start to the day.

    No doubt there will be eulogizing of the war criminal and attempts to rehabilitate his image in some quarters.

    Richard Donner: The Goonies and Superman director dies aged 91

    The RIP Famous Person Thread-richard-donner-director-lethal-weapon-702x367


    On Monday, July 5, director Richard Donner died. News came from Donner’s family via a spokesperson, who revealed he passed away in Los Angeles at the age of 91. Donner is responsible for laying the foundation for epic superhero movies through his 1978 Superman.

    Nine years later, he added
    Lethal Weapon to his directorial resume, an enduring entry in the legacy of the buddy cop action genre. Other notable works include The Goonies, The Omen, and Maverick. Through this extensive work, Donner has many colleagues mourning has passing and fondly remembering their work together.

    Fame came to Donner first with his 1976
    supernatural horror film The Omen, which went on to become one of the highest-grossing films of that year. Though reviews at the time were mixed, it went on to become something of a cult classic. In the background, disagreements between Donner and writer David Seltzer split the script interpretation between vague (favored by Donner) and indisputable, favored by Seltzer.

    Not a decade later, and Richard Donner
    made Christopher Reeve into a hero, a role that stayed with him for the rest of his life and that remains one of the most classic images of a superhero to date. Recalling Donner’s work on the film, director Kevin Smith wrote that Donner himself “invented the modern day comic book movie with Superman and called him “a natural born storyteller.” Into the 2000s, Donner again helped bring superheroes to the forefront with some choice mutations by producing X-Men. Additionally, his wife Lauren Shuler Donner produced all entries in the X-Men series under the Donners’ Company brand.

    William Smith dead aged 88 - actor who played Clint Eastwood's nemesis dies in hospital


    The RIP Famous Person Thread-0_william-smith-jpg

    The Hollywood star William Smith who starred in TV shows including Hawaii Five-O and Rich Man, Poor Man and films including Any Which Way You Can and Conan The Barbarian has died aged 88.

    The star – whose career spanned more than 75 years – passed away at the Motion Picture & Television Country House and Hospital in Woodland Hills on Monday.

    His death was confirmed to the Hollywood Reporter by his surviving wife, Joanne Cervelli – although a cause of death has not year been revealed.

    William had started his career in acting as a child – featuring in big screen projects from the age of eight back in the early 1940s.

    He also served in the Unites States Air Force during his life time and also entered the world of sport as a weightlifting champion, an amateur boxer and a world champion arm-wrestler.

    His weightlifting and boxing prowess fed in to his acting roles – with his role in 1970's Darker Than Amber seeing him taking part in one of the “most violent and realist brawl scenes of all time”,
    according to the MailOnline.


    William famously featured in the 1980 film Any Which Way You Can alongside Clint Eastwood – which including a dramatic fight scene that rampaged through streets and restaurants.

    Recapping his impressive career, the Hollywood Reported detailed in a tribute: "The 6-foot-2 Smith, who was a champion discus thrower at UCLA, an arm-wrestling champion and a black belt in the martial arts, had 18-inch biceps and could do 5,100 continuous sit-ups and reverse curl 163 pounds. As prolific as he was strong, he had a whopping 289 credits on IMDb, seemingly in everything from the ’60s onward.

    "Smith starred with fellow bodybuilder Arnold Schwarzenegger in Conan the Barbarian (1982) and spoke fluent Russian as a general in Red Dawn (1984) — both those films were directed by John Milius — and, as a gang leader named Carrot, battled Yul Brynner with a ball and chain in The Ultimate Warrior (1975).


    "He was a go-to-guy when casting for biker films, starring in director Jack Starrett’s Run, Angel, Run! (1969) and The Losers (1970); in Angels Die Hard (1970), from Roger Corman’s New World Pictures; in C.C. and Company (1970), starring Joe Namath and Ann-Margret; in Chrome and Hot Leather (1971), opposite Marvin Gaye; and in Gentle Savage (1973) and Eye of the Tiger (1986).
