Tony Ogden 1962 – 2006

August 4, 2006

UPDATE: Hm. Now I know why I had so many hits. Tony Ogden has died. He was obitted in The Independent by the fabulous John Robb two days ago. That is a big shame. He was a huge talent and should have been more recognised for his music. Here is a link to his obituary. Very sad. Big waste. Apparently cause of death is as yet unknown.

FURTHER UPDATE: For anyone who is interested – apparently Tony Ogden was found dead in a lake in Stockport near his mother’s house. There will be an inquest.

    That’s a shame about Tony Ogden…that’s such a great cover!<br/>I have just come here to ask if you would be a joint team leader with Robert. I hope you take up the challenge. I hope that you accept. The other team will probably have two leaders…and I thought you two made a natural partnership. Strength, humour, smut. That’s what we need.

    Why not? Does that mean we can do things like say ‘I’m sorry – I’ll have to pass that to the other team’ and ‘fingers on buzzers please’?

    Excellent. It will be on Tuesday eve at 8pm – so be there. It might all go pear-shaped. At the end of today, I have five rounds. So, it should be fun.

    I posted a short Tony Ogden/Arthur Lee two-for-the-price-of-one obituary the other day to general indifference, so it’s nice to see that someone else appreciated World Of Twist. Very entertaining live, they were.

    (sorry, late comment)<br/><br/>I finally managed to track down a copy of Quality Street about 6 months ago after realising I missed it terribly and should never have left it with my ex-girlfriend in the early 90’s. Didn’t think anyone else in the world remembered them. Album still sounds great now. Very sad about Tony Ogden.

    Hi Lethe<br/><br/>Thanks for dropping by. Glad you managed to track the album down again. It’s just class isn’t it – I never tire of it. Terrible waste that Tony died – he was way ahead of his time and it was a shame he never really knew how much he was appreciated.

    Such a tragic waste. A great talent and a really LOVELY bloke – always had time for us fans. Shared many a drink with Tony and the band, and Intastella. He never got over being screwed over by Virgin though and we lost touch.<br/><br/>His poor family.
