Pete Shelley, co-founder of the Buzzcocks. My copy of the band's singles compilation LP was worn out when I bought it second hand...and I wore it out even more.

At the bottom of the CBC article is a link to a story about Randy Rampage of DOA. I somehow missed the story when it was first published back on August 25th, 2018.

Bob Einstein...better known to me as "Super Dave Osborne". I first heard of the character when watching "Bizarre" on CTV, probably in the early 80s. The CN Tower stunt/sketch was priceless!
