Any word on why Miss O'Connor died yet
The family released at statement but didn't say cause of death. Reading between the lines of the wording in some of the tributes being paid and given her previous attempt after her 17 year old son committed suicide 18 months ago, it seems she took her own life. I could be wrong.

Aye, I don't think anyone would be surprised if it was suicide. She's always been a troubled soul.

The Blood of Eden with Peter Gabriel was very good song i thought, also This is a Rebel Song with The Chieftains is excellent. The later is an Irish rebel song so mightn't be to everyone's taste here in that sense but she sings it very well, worth checking out on youtube.

Sorry i'm wrong there, This is a Rebel song was song by herself. The one she did with The Chieftains was The Foggy Dew which is a great version, i think it was in 'The Wind that shakes the barley' movie, about the Irish civil war in 1922.

Enjoyed this particular story from Popbitch..... :D
>> Parky time <<
Chang overboard!

Back when Michael Parkinson was working in Australia, there was a point where Elton John was out on tour over there too. Ever the lavish host, Elton invited Parky and his wife to join him out on a yacht for a little party he was throwing.

Unfortunately, Parky and Mary arrived to the jetty a little too late – just in time to catch the HMS Elton sailing off towards the horizon. A couple of obliging water cops recognised Parky however, so offered the couple a quick ride out to the vessel.

A few minutes later, they were aboard. But far from being happy to see them, Parky was greeted by a furious Elton. It turned out that the rest of the party had mistaken Parky's lift for a police bust, so had lobbed all their gear overboard. Thousands of dollars' worth of narcotics were lost to the deep, ruining the party for everyone – so the Parkinsons were pariahs for the rest of the night.
