Yes a morbid post but fuck it, needs must. I found myself, tonight, reading “Modern Nature” by Derek Jarman whilst listening to Kirsty MacColl. And I began to wonder who are the three people I’d resurrect from the dead?
I put this on twitter and said Jarman, MacColl and Henson. I’ve changed my mind. It would be
– Derek Jarman
– Kirsty MacColl
– Martyn Bennett
All three were either at their peak or approaching a peak. We had a lot of good stuff to come from all of them and they were snatched from us. Sorry Jim Henson, I love your stuff dearly, but I would love to have heard what Martyn Bennett would have done more than I love you.
What about you lot?
