RIP Lynsey de Paul

Brain haemorrhage, age 64 (same age as John Peel), a staple of early 70s Top of the Pops. 'Sugar Me' and 'Won't Somebody Dance With Me' were fluff, but her coy cameo in Mott the Hoople's 'Roll Away the Stone' was genius. And of course as a boy on the cusp of teenagerdom, I can't say I didn't fancy her. I think it was the beauty spot that really did it.
